couponing – taking it to the next level…

I had previously posted about couponing but have since taken it to the next level.
I am now a loud and proud Krazy Coupon Lady. I’ve been learning from The Krazy Coupon Lady herself. If you are new to couponing I suggest you check out…  10 Days to becoming a Krazy Coupon Lady.

That being said one of the most exciting parts of couponing is sharing your success stories.
In preparation for a LARGE Super Bowl Party at our house I took to the stores with gusto.

Here are my 2 trips. The second of course was WAY more fruitful, however… I tried to keep in mind that the first one I purchased a lot of junk food/pre prepared food which always costs more.

On my first trip I did make an error, have to return and repurchase some items. And later learned I could have even saved probably $4 more if I had used the correct combination of coupons. Enough talk. Let’s have the photos and numbers speak for themselves.

ALBERTSONS – Spent $46.46 on $92.22 worth.
Transaction 1 – 25.96 for $43.96
Kraft salad dressing 2/$4.00
$1.00/2 in ad manufacturer coupon
Final Price: $1 after double

Tyson Appetizers
This was my error…
First time through Manufacturer’s coupon $1/2 plus a double. Already marked down to $7.99 made them $6.99 each but I later returned and re-purchased using the Albertson’s coupon for $5.99 each. If I hadn’t used my manufacturer’s early I could have brought those down to $4.99ish.

Could have been
