Adventures in Couponing.

Posted by Michelle on June 5th, 2011 . Filed under: Couponing .

Got a smallish couponing trip to share with you today that packed quite the savings.
Albertsons had double coupons last week – none for this week though 🙁 – so that made my savings much more better. I don’t know what the future of couponing at Albertsons holds though. With the popularity of couponing since those Extreme Couponing shows, they seem to be changing their policies from week-to-week and becoming a little less coupon-friendly. I have heard that there will be doublers again next week with new rules, so we’ll see how it goes. But for now, I’m grateful for what I can get. 🙂

22 packs of Bar S hot dogs. $1 each, coupon for $1-off (2)…doubled = free weenies for everybody!

27 bottles of Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce and 3 bottles of Gatorade. In-store promo for buy 10 items, and get $5 off instantly. With my coupons and doublers, I got 9 bottles of barbecue sauce and 1 bottle of Gatorade for $1.60….3 times.

2 boxes of Little Debbie’s oatmeal pies, 2 Ghirardelli dark candy bars, and 8 pork steaks. With coupons and doublers, the Little Debbies were 9-cents each, the Ghirardellis were not on sale so with coupons (doubled) I ended up paying 79-cents each but they are for little gifts so I was OK with that, and the pork was free with more $1-off pork coupons (doubled) that I told you about last week.

Here’s my whole trip:
2 Ghirardelli extra dark chocolate bars
2 boxes of Little Debbie oatmeal snack cakes
2 bags of Haribo gummies (not pictured – done ate those already ;))
3 bottles of Gatorade
8 1-pound pork steaks
22 packages of Bar S hot dogs
27 bottles of Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce
I paid $8.59
That’s a 95% savings!

    You are awesome! I didn’t coupon at all during school (I know you’ll think I’m awful for that), but in summer, it’s fun to look around at all the good deals. I mean, ya can’t beat FREE hot dogs!!!

    $8.59? Awesome. I can’t remember going to the store and paying that little for even a couple of things, lol!
