I am newly in love with these Yoplait Frozen Smoothies: The bag says it's 2 servings and each serving is a whole serving of fruit and only 110 calories... so I make the whole bag and drink it all :-) It's delicious.
These little bags of goodness are usually $3.29, which I feel like isn't too terrible but at the same time, I don't want to be spending that much on breakfast (or my mid-day snack) every morning. This week these bags were on sale for $2.49 though.... and then I found a coupon for $1 off a bag on Coupons.com. That makes each bag $1.49. So I printed out 3 coupons (that's the max it'd let me print) and bought 3 bags, each at $1.49.
And then while I was at the store, I happened to notice that Kix were on sale for $1.99 - they are normally $3.49 a box! And wouldn't you believe Coupons.com had a coupon for $0.75 off a box??!
So what did I do? Ran home and printed out Kix coupons. And more Yoplait Smoothie coupons. And then I went shopping.
Yesterday I bought:
4 bags of Yoplait Smoothies
2 boxes Multi-Grain Cheerios (on sale for $1.99 each, with a $1 off 2 boxes coupon)
3 boxes of Kix
The grand total? $12.66. My receipt shows a savings of $18.15, which is 58% of the total bill.
Let me say that again: I saved 58% of my bill.
While I was scanning my coupons, I kept waiting for the machine to tell me to go to hell. Or for a store employee to tell me I couldn't use them all. Or for the police to show up because I was committing highway robbery.
I secretly want to print more coupons and go back tomorrow, but I don't have anywhere to store another 5 boxes of cereal. If I had a big pantry, though.... I'd go back to rape my grocery store's cereal aisle again.
