Frugal Grocery Shopping: I Saved 100%!

Last week I received a bunch of coupons in the mail from one of my PTO sources. I'm the PTO president at my kids elementary school and several times throughout the year I receive free samples, copons and products. We are a small school so we always have plenty of extras to go around.

In the last bunch of goodies that I received - there were $1/1 Goldfish cracker coupons. I thought to myself; WOW, what a great deal! I know that often times our Albertson's will have Goldfish crackers on sale 10 for $10. So, $1 each!

Sure enough, that sale was going on this week and I took full advantage! I ended up going a couple different times. Saving 100% each time, only having to pay sales tax which is 6 cents per $1!

I also had some coupons for FREE drinks from My Coke Rewards, so I used them too! This trip I got 15 bags of Goldfish, 1 Dasani water and 3 Minute Maid drinks!  I paid just $1.26 for 19 items! 


I saved a total of $44.21 for a total of savings of 100%!  It doesn't get much better (or cheaper) than that! I love shopping like this!  Can't beat an absolutely FREE deal like this one!


What is the best deal you have gotten lately?
