When you coupon shop at the end of a big sale event, it's expected that some of the "big ticket" items will be out of stock. This was definitely true this morning, but all things considered, I'm really happy with my haul. I purchased $50 worth of groceries for less than $7, an 86% savings. Keep in mind, this is NOT my main grocery shopping trip for the week. I'll be heading out to another store, probably Aldi, to stock up on milk and produce.
Because I was "vacationing" last week, I didn't post coupon matchups for this sale, but if you're interested in shopping before it ends tomorrow evening, check out Homemaking Mom, where you will find a list of all the freebies and inexpensive items. Remember, you can triple a maximum of 20 coupons each day, and you may only use two of the same internet printable coupon.
