If you are going coupon shopping this weekend, send me your pictures!!! I personally like seeing pictures of what people can do with their coupons, and I think it helps readers see what they can do as well! So if you don’t mind sharing..send me your recent shopping trip!
I made a trip to Target and found some good deals to share! I spent $14.74 for these items- 3lbs of Tri-Tip, 1.5 lbs of chicken breasts, 6 boxes of PopTarts, 6 180z. Quick Oatmeal, 2 Yoplait Yogurts, 1 Suave Shampoo, 1 NYC nail polish, 2 Halls Vitamin C Drops, 10 GoodLife Cat Food, and 2lbs of Brown Sugar. My Subtotal was $55.33! So I saved $39.89!
Most of you should have the same coupons, or could print the same coupons, here is what I did..
PopTarts-Blueberry Muffin Flavor only $1.02
Used $1 off 3 Pop Tarts from Kelloggs.com
=$.69 each! (My kids were SO happy!)
Sutton and Dodge Tri Tip $12.57 (Reg. $4.99lb)
Used the 2-$3 off coupons on the package
=$6.57 so $2.60lb
*On Target.com there are $1 off Sutton and Dodge Beef coupons, but it depends on the cashier if they will let yoiu use these on the meat that is already marked down with coupons on them. It has worked for me before, and it has NOT worked for me before. I did not try this time because I really wouldn’t buy it if it wasn’t marked down.

If you are just starting out and want to build up your coupon supply, internet printable coupons are very easy to find. The more coupons you have, the more money you can save!!
Here are some coupon sites that you can print coupons from. Once a week or so they seem to add more coupons and change them up, sometimes more than that. A few times a week I go to these sites and see if if there is anything good. Once in awhile they will have a high dollar amount coupon that will only be on there for hours until the print limit is reached-so it is a matter of timing!
www.allyou.com They usually have the same coupons as Coupons.com, but they also have some exclusive higher amount coupons as well.
Also if there is a product you really like-go to their website, they will usually have a coupon on there.
Remember that you can print coupons twice per computer by hitting the back button!
