A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned For More Food Storage
Now that I'm back from girl's camp, I can focus on shopping for food storage using coupons. My coupon binder is packed full of coupons, thanks to my 5 great neighbors who have been saving coupon inserts for me.
Coupon Tip: Ask neighbors to save coupon inserts for you because most people don't use coupons. In return, give them coupons for their favorite restaurants.
Today I shopped at Smith's (Kroger) and bought a year's supply of Colgate toothpaste for $5.59 or .35 per tube! Retail would have been $36 for 16 tubes! Crazy, I know. A savings of 84%. I've been saving up my Colgate coupons, and watching and waiting for this Mega Event sale.
I also stocked up on Stayfree feminine items and paid $1.10 for each. A 64% savings. Obviously I bought other groceries (ice cream and napkins not pictured) and didn't save as much on them, but a penny saved is a penny earned for more food storage.
The picture above retailed for $146.00 (Can you believe it?)
52% overall savings
