Did Some Shopping!

Whew..it has been awhile since I went out to the stores to “coupon” !
I have had family here this month for a few weeks, and then went out of town for a week.
So I really needed this little couponing getaway tonight.. 🙂

Can I just whine a little to you all..my dear readers.. Whilst in Vancouver last week my purse was stolen! (I left purse in car, they broke window and stole it) Now, I was probably most upset about the coupons,Register Rewards, gift cards and catalinas inside..I had lots of good ones in there. Some Rainchecks too.. (waaaaahhh…) I knew you would all understand my pain….I have the attitude of “Take Anything but the coupons!!!” lol!

Anyhoo…on to my shopping.

Oh thats right..wait. You may not want to see.

I did it again.

Just close your eyes..okay? You never saw this.

I bought that item I am not supposed to buy.

Cereal. My cheap arch enemy. Always beckoning me to buy it. Remember this week and this post? Yeah, the stockpile hasnt really gone down much.

You know I dont have any more room. But I couldnt help myself!

I did it all for the movie tickets. I love the movies! Speaking of which, I just reached $3,000.00 in savings so you all know what that means..giveaway time! So stay tuned. Hmmm..Anyone need cereal?..LOL..just kidding.

I purchased 16 boxes Kelloggs cereal -used $1/1 coupons
2 boxes cheez-its – used $1/2 coupons
1 packages keebler cookies – -used $1/2 coupons
6 Vitamin waters — drank one -used $1/1 coupons
Got BACK 2 Vouchers for 2 movie tickets EACH! So I added the $36 that I will save when I go to the movies to my savings totals!


Then Safeway was REALLY fun. The Living Well promotion sure takes a lot of thought!

Here is what I purchased
