WOW Savings for 9/25/09

Ok so I needed to get Baby Jacob some formula. I had an $8.00 coupon for Good Start by Nestle. A can of soy formula costs 13.47 at Walmart so I expected to pay about $5.47 plus tax.

But then I saw online a few other coupons.

So here's my coupon list:

Zantac coupon for $5.00
Similac coupon for $5.00
Good Start for $8.00
Good Start for $8.00 (yes I had two coupons)
Dr. Peper for $1.00
Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal for $2.00

Ok that's $29.00 in coupons

Now, let's look at what I bought and what it cost!

Zantac cost $4.46
Similac (32 oz instant do not add water)$6.24
Good Start (powder) $13.24
Good Start (32 oz instant do not add water)$6.56
Dr. Pepper (Big Bottle) $1.25
Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal $2.50
Milk 1/2 gallon for $1.68
Ok so....

Total before coupons: $35.93
Total Tax: $3.03
Coupons savings: $29.00
GRAND TOTAL: (Drumroll) $9.96

OMG WOW Until next time!

I'm Determined!

Wow is all I can say. I checked my mailbox yesterday and got some GREAT things! Here's a couple of pictures:



Then I went to Wal Mart today with my coupons and saved $58.00. Yes, $58.00.

The things I purchased were things I would have gotten anyway but I had buy one get one free coupons, free coupons and greatly discounted coupons. All in all I spent $42.16, that cut my bill in half! This didn't take me long, but it did take just a wee bit of planning, like sitting down the family and saying, "ok guys and gals, what do you want for dinners this week and what exactly do I need to pick up?"

I did that three days in advance then mapped out the savings by going to the store and picking up a flier. I figured out about how much it was going to cost and attacked it like a general sends his troups to attack in war!

I used the coupons that I got with the samples I've been signing myself up for too, this helped me a lot.

All in all it was well worth it!

Later on today I'm going to hit up the yard sales to see if I can find anything to put on E*bay. I'll tell you all about it later if not tomorow!
