I used all the sales I could find as long as it was things that we could use. I got crest toothpaste for FREE . I got HORMEL items mostly for a sale price along with coupons. I got shelf ready meals for my granddaughter. I picked veggies and rice for fifty cents. I got two loan mashed potatoes on the shelf for .42 a package. I got milk for a buck a 1/2 gallon.
Fresh fruits were a good price and frozen veggies were a buck. I was trying to keep the budget down so that I could start using from the stock on hand.
I wound up saving 65 percent. I saved more than I spent! I'm happy in a state that won't let you get overages!! I am not going to spend a lot of time clipping coupons and I refuse to pay for them. I Did want to experiment to see how well I could extreme coupon.
The next experiment is to see which is the least expensive...sliced black olives or the whole ones in the can. If anyone knows, I wouldn't mind a bit if you commented back about your findings!
The bottom line was 30.01.
