Coupons Are Good For...

As I was checking out at the grocery store today using a big supply of coupons, the man ahead of me was buying one can of pineapple juice.

"You could have gotten that for free," I thought in my head as he dished out a dollar and change.

Today was the first day in a several months that I actually collected coupons and made a list before I left on a tour of two grocery stores and Walgreens.

I'm happy to post the list of things I got on sale and with coupons.  Not free, but a discount on each item. I saved about 75 percent today.  I didn't get more than three of each item because most of the grocery stores have a limit of three now. (And, I only get one Sunday paper.)

I used coupons for Lysol cleaning supplies, Purina cat food, cheese, vitamins ($4 off), shampoo (Aussie), toothpaste and brushes (Crest) , dish soap, frozen veges (Steamers), Land-0-Lakes butter, Tide laundry soap, and one Christmas gift for you (Sandy). The BEST deal was Cheerios. Got a large box for $3. (Actually, got three boxes.) Oh, and I got jars of Claussen pickles for 99-cents each with a sale and my (expired) coupon. Also, shaving cream and razors. Don't need bath tissue or Kleenex, but could have got that too. I'm waiting for a cream cheese sale to use this week's coupon on that. Pineapple would have been free, but I forgot it.

So, don't give up. Keep on the lookout for coupons for things you use. It really does make you feel satisfied at the end of the day and want to share the fun with everyone.

Take Care on the Journey,
