My best COUPON day!!

Last night I walked out of the grocery store felling elated with excitement for all my great finds. And Kyle says “You are so damn sexy!" I was a little confused because I was not looking all that hot, in my zip up hoodie, jeans, and flip flops. I looked at him and said what? He says “Your passion for life is beyond sexy!" I guess I will take that complement even if my outrageous passion explodes for making $3.50 for taking home some deli meat. Sorry I should post this stuff a little earlier so you all have time to catch in on these deals, but I don't go shopping until the end of the sale because I can't stand all the "crazy coupon ladies" Kim if I have to pick you up and take you to the grocery store, so you can feel the euphoric rush as you're getting all kinds of free groceries, I will, I know you need a little extra push.



I got 60 rice and pasta sides for .13 cents, normally $2.00





This was my favorite deal of the night. I was paid $3.50 for each deli meat I took. I only got 10, I felt a little stupid clearing out the deli meat section, and I guess getting paid $35.00 for taking home delicious meat works for me. Ok so how I got this deal is.... at Albertsons they a have the meat on sale for 2 for $5.00, On the package they have coupons that say save $1.00 off now peel those off. There is another peel coupon on top that says TRY ME FREE. Hillshire will pay you $4.99 to try their new deli meats. I'm not sure if all Albertsons have the peel coupons on their Hillshire deli meat. The sale ends today, at least the 2/$5 deal.




I got 60 shampoo and conditioner for a total of .13 cents each. If you do the math I didn't even pay what the sales tax would have been. The normal price is $5.33, just for tax I would have paid .27 cents. I am sure some of you are saying when will you ever use that much shampoo, I am sure I will still have some during the Millennium, if I am still around.



20 boxes of free toothpaste. And if you know me I need all 20 boxes so I don't look like this guy in a few years.






So in the end I got $580.00 worth of groceries for free. And will actually make $19.40 after I get my rebate back, not bad!! If you have any questions on how you can get the same deals leave a comment.

This is quite possibly one of my more favorite qualities you possess, I asked kyle if he thought is was "cute" he said "it was at first but now we just have so many damn cereal boxes everywhere!" Haha I think of that everytime!

Hey there!! It's Miriam Daugs Jones!! A fellow coupon queen!! Did you do the K-mart double coupons last week? Go to Naomi's blog to check out what she got. It was pretty sweet!! Did you see the Albertson's Chex deal that starts today? If you have $1 off coupons, then it's 3 boxes of cereal and 4 free 2-liter sodas for $2 total. Great to stock up on sodas for holiday parties.
