Hooray for Coupons!

Last night Samantha and I went to Walmart to do a coupon shopping trip. We ended up being there for 2 1/2 hours! I had a ton of coupons I wanted to use to stock up on personal care items as well as some groceries.

By the time we finally got the the checkout counter and I used my big stack of coupons, here are my totals.

$293.36 was the total
-$47.91 in coupons!
-$171.78 Walmart gift cards from Jeremy's work (a perk of his job)

The total I paid was only $73.67!!!

So I walked out with almost $300 worth of stuff for my family for only $73.67!!! :) I even let Samantha get a few packs of gum as a reward for being so great in the store. I happened to have coupons for the gum too, buy one get one free! That's the kind of shopping I like.

That is a royal shopping spree! I loved to shop with coupons when you kids were home. It makes you feel so good to get so many bargains. Congrats!

Congratulations on such fine workmanship. Getting a lot for a little is always worth a mere 2 1/2 hours. :)

Hey... I was at WalMart last night and didn't see you there... guess we just missed each other. Good to hear about your good deal though!

And I am curious where Jeremy works... sounds like a good place.
