Here is a picture of this week's shopping!
My total after coupons and one rebate was .40! I also purchased 4 loaves of whole grain bread and 2 cartons of soy milk that are not in the picture (ran out of room on my table). I would have paid $197.05 without coupons/rebate. I shopped at Target, Kmart, Walmart, and Hy-Vee.
This is a great example of how asking friends/family/coworkers for extra copies of the Sunday paper coupon inserts can really boost your shopping. I was able to get multiples of several items because I had multiple copies of Sunday coupons. (A big thanks to those who so generously give me their coupons!)
Do I need 2 diabetic monitors when I am not diabetic? Nope. However, the monitors cost between $16-$19. The coupon from the Sunday paper was a $20 coupon. The overage helps pay for some of my other groceries. The monitors can be given to a friend, sole unopened at a garage sale, or donated to the local nursing home.
