Did you ever just have a really lousy afternoon? Me too. I had one today actually. Everything in me wanted to verbally assault someone. Or possibly eat an entire half-gallon of ice cream…and some butter drenched bread. Instead, I went couponing. It was totally cathartic. I spent $24.43. At regular prices – here’s what I could have purchased for that dollar amount. Five boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios…maybe six boxes depending on where you shop.
Here’s what I got for that same price:
Cathartic Couponing Haul
20 Boxes General Mills Cereal (Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Trix)
10 Bags Chex Mix
10 Boxes Green Giant Frozen Veggies
10 Cans Progresso Soup (fall lunches for my honey)
1 Tontino’s Pizza
1 Box fruit snacks
Total Regular Price: $139.24
Total Savings: $114.81
As if that weren’t good enough – I got back 3 FREE 12-Pack soda coupons…that I’m going to use tomorrow to score Coke 12 packs for a dollar…which will in turn score me some free crackers. Yeah – pretty much, Albertsons (and coupons) totally rock my world. And, blowing off steam with coupon shopping saved me the cost of a therapy session and hefty legal fees if I’d let my fury get the best of me. Double win!
