What You Can Get for 84 Cents and Coupons!

My brilliant daughter Victoria has a coupon system. She watches the sales papers, previews circulars online, combines with  online coupons, then shops at Wal-mart where they accept competitor’s coupons.

This is an example of one shopping trip she paid 84 cents plus tax for $54 in products! Works for her.

Products Purchased:

  • 5 Scott TP Extra Soft 4 pack. Normally $4.59 price comparison at Albertson $.88 5/$1 off coupons
  • 6 bags 15oz Chex Mix normally $3.?? Price comparison at Albertson $1 6/$1 off coupons
  • 2 Mitchum Deodorant normally $3.29 price comparison at Target $1.99 2/$2 off coupons
  • 6 Hershey’s Bliss $3.79 price comparison at Kmart 2/$5 3/$2 off 2 Walgreens 6 $1 off coupons
  • 3 Hershey’s Syrup normally $1.75 on sale 1.50 buy 2 get 1 free coupon
  • 18 Head and Shoulders trial size $.97 8 with $3 off coupons two any size
  • 2 Great Value On the Go Drink Mixes normally $1.75 on sale $1.50


  • Sub total before taxes and Coupons was $54.34
  • Sub total before taxes and after coupons $.84
  • Grand total after taxes $3.91
  • 42 items sold  for an average of $.02 per item before taxes!
  • Pride in frugal my daughter – PRICELESS!

Vicky is teaching me to use the coupons online. I haven’t had the time to search and go to all the sites but this week I saved $15 on an $80 purchase  at the grocery store (I’m a light weight).

Once I get the process down better I’ll post step by step instructions. If you don’t know which sites to go to, you waste a lot of time filling in forms for spammers. Consider this post a teaser.

    Wow! That is very impressive. I’ve tried to do the coupon thing a bit, but have yet to make that serious of a deal! It is so much work to try and keep it all organized. I’ll love to see what tips you can share in the future!

    Very Impressive!

    I also started couponing about 6 months ago. It definately helps if you learn how to do it. I always thought coupons were a waste of time. And they kind of are, unless you match them up with the right store and sale.

    I am excited to go grocery shopping now, it’s like a game for me to see how little I can spend. And I am able to buy things that I couldn’t afford to waste money on, now that they are practically free!
