This is what $19.63 gets you if you coupon!

26 06 2011

Jessica and I took our couponing to another level ..we went shopping in the MORNING! It’s about the same as shopping at night but THEY HAVE EVERYTHING WE WANT! That’s pretty amazing if you’re familiar with the empty shelves that are seemingly more common these days – especially in Milwaukie, we have a smaller Albertson’s!

I ended up doing 10 transactions, but it wasn’t busy so we were able to do them virtually back to back with only one or two people going ahead of us! Remember, ALWAYS LET PEOPLE WITH NO COUPONS (you’ll know who they are, you recognize the sales!) GO AHEAD OF YOU. Makes for nicer cashiers and nicer looks. I will break down my transactions ..they’re pretty easy, similar items.
