Adventures in Couponing: The Results of my Hard Work

So after approximately 4 weeks of collecting coupons, I finally feel like I have enough of a coupon stash that I'm seeing results at the store.

My sweet hubby works next to a drugstore so he does my weekly run there. We bought 1 bottle of shampoo, 2 tubes of toothpaste, 2 tubs of margarine, 4 coffee mate creamers, 2 boxes of Chex mix cereal bars, Children's Dimetapp, Advil PM, and 3 packs of Eclipse gum.......All for.......
A total of $11.39. Plus another $2 back on my next visit.
That's a savings of $36.59
Tonight, while hubby was a youth group I got my parents to come watch the kids so I could run and get groceries. Here is my haul from Krogers. I paid......
$58.29 and saved $59.24!!!!
The more I build up my coupon stash, the better and better my grocery haul will be. I think that I'm seriously addicted to saving money now. I grumble and groan on Sundays when I'm clipping out and sorting my coupons.....but when I see the results on my store receipts.....it's all worth it!
