How Coupons really cut your Food Budget

Buying lots of items at VERY low-FREE will get you to the place where you have plenty of food in stock to make GREAT meals without having to run to the store, and then you will start to extremely reduce your budget-Here is an example;

This is what we are having for dinner tonight for 9 People-
2 boxes of pasta$.25 each
2 jars of sauce$.69 each
Johnsonville Italian SausagesFREE at Raleys with $20 purchase last weekend
2 bags Kraft Shredded pizza cheeese$1 each
1 package french bread for garlic bread- Free at Target when I bought Peanut butter a few weeks ago
2 bags of Steamfresh Green BeansFREE when I bought fishsticks 2 weeks ago)
So dinner for 9 people PLUS leftovers was
$3.88! ($.43 a person)

So my advice to you would beeven if you don’t need it on your menu this week, BUY IT if it is a stock up price, or if you can get things for free, save them up. Then, when you go to make your menu after a few weeks of doing this you will have many items to start with and your trips to the store will just be for fresh produce and meat-or more cheap-free items.

Make Money At CVS !!!! 9/13-9/18

Here is the shopping trip at CVS where you can get MORE back then you spend!!! It is a GREAT transaction to get you started shopping at CVS and leave you with enough Extra Bucks to use next week and never have to spend a lot there again!

Buy These Items:

1 Alive Multi Vitamins for Women $9.99 (Receive $9.99 Extra Bucks back)
1 Nivea Mens Body Wash $4.99 (Recieve $4.99 EB) Make sure you choose the scent that has the tag that says you get $4.99 Extra Bucks back-there are other scents that are part of a different sale!
1 Bag of Brachs Candy Corn $.99.(Receive $.99 Extra Bucks)
Tylenol Precise $5.99 (Receive $2.00 Extra Bucks back)

A lot of what I buy at CVS and Rite Aid I give away because I get it for free. Just buying the Extra Buck items with your extra bucks and coupons each week you end up with more and more Extra Bucks each week. Sometimes when they have sales on milk and eggs, I use my Extra Bucks on that so it doesn’t come out of my regular shopping budget.

So My mom flew in this morning from Southern CA, and she is flying back out tonight. SO I had an extra suitcase and let her go “shopping” through my stockpiled treasures! Of course I took her to Rite Aid and Target for a quick lesson before she left! The weight limit for Southwest is 50lbs, and her suitcase weighed 45lbs! It was so fun to fill that up as full as I could!
