my deal run today

I'm really excited about the deal I did today. I made three transactions and each one was about a dollar or a little over. This is what I got:

8 boxes of Orville Redenbacker popcorn
7 boxes of Poptarts
2 boxes of Capri Sun
6 boxes of dishwasher tabs thingys electrosol stuff
24 rolls of toilette paper
10 McCormicks spices
8 boxes of Mac N Cheese
7 hand pumps of hand wash

I think that's it. While Scott was bringing it up he asked how much I spent and I said around three dollars and he freaked out and said, "30 dollars!!!" The thing that is so funny about that is if I had paid without coupons or anything it would have been at least eighty dollars!!! So him thinking 30 was a lot was kind of funny. I did, however, go and buy seven newspapers this morning at the dollar store so I guess you could say I spend around ten dollars when it comes to coupons and product. But it's always fun to see how low you can get your bill. Maybe I'll show you a picture of all the stuff I have after this deal at Safeway is over in two weeks.

Is the deal only at Safeway??? I know you are going to be shocked but I have been doing coupons lately because we are on a BIG budget. What websites do you really like?

The one that I frequent a lot is Slickdeals. It's a pretty big website it took me forever to actually get the lingo and everything. The only thing I got outside of safeway (or Vons in your case-same same) was the toilette paper and the McCormick seasonings. The rest was as Safeway. If you go to Slick deals forum. On the top there will be a ... Here I'll just link it up or put up an address

If you go to that page and scroll down to the second post and then scroll down....keep scrolling... you'll see a smiley face icon that is in the form of a super man smiley. Everything under that is all the details about the deal that's going on at Safeway. You still have time to order coupons from ebay if you want. The deal ends the fifth of May. I've been taking the most advantage of it as I can.

Nice work, Amy!! I've totally put couponing to the side, but have been inspired by you!

That is totally crazy. I can't believe you can get so much with such little money! One day I need to take lessons from you.
