While I’m certainly a pro at saving money at CVS, I’m still a newbie trying to use coupons at Stop&Shop and Shaws. But the most important thing is practice… even with couponing.
Today was probably my biggest success at saving money at Stop&Shop. I walked out of there with a shopping cart I could barely push for only $90! Yes, $90 seems like a lot, especially for a broke college student like me. But when I think about how much I was able to get for that amount, plus the fact that I bought food for the pool party I’m having tomorrow, as well as the food for my weekly blog recipes, and a few pantry staples… that’s pretty good.
Here’s How I Did It:
- (4) Helluva Good Chip Dip: $1.67/each (used two $1/2 manufacturer coupons)
- Stop&Shop Skim Milk: $3.39
- Stop&Shop Pie Crusts: $2.69
- Frozen Broccoli & Cauliflower, (2) Chopped Broccoli, Chopped Kale: $1.00/each
- (6) Betty Crocker Brownie Mix: 2/$4 (used three $0.75/2 – doubled to $1.50 – manufacturer coupons)
- (6) Cape Cod Chips: 2/$5 (used three $1/2 manufacturer coupons)
- (4) Coke brand 12-packs: 4/$10
- (6) Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup: 2/$4 (used three $1/2 manufacturer coupons)
- (2) Oreo Peanut Butter: 2/$6 (used $1/2 manufacturer coupon)
- (6) Reynold’s Wrap Foil: $3/each (used six $1/1 manufacturer coupon)
- Sugar Free Lemon Jello: $1
- (3) Twizzlers: 3/$5 (used $1/3 manufacturer coupon)
- Watermelon: $3.99
- Bag of onions: $2.99
- Sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms: 3/$5
- 1.85lb Tomatoes on the Vine: $4.61
The total savings with my coupons was $22.50 and the grand total was $90.06!
