Default grocery store victory

.... So I hadn't gone grocery shopping really in about a month or more. I had shopped for the guests we had, etc... but not really gotten the basics, etc...

I went grocery shopping last week and picked up the sale circular on the way in to see the deals.

With buy one, get ones and buy one, get twos I saved a ton (yes, I bought a ton -- but only foods we really do eat -- and I now own a fridge and freezer for extra storage..)

I saved $116 -- yes, I got 116 dollars worth of food for free. the manager had to override the computer for it!!!

I won't have to shop for another month except for milk, bread, etc...

How did you get so much for free? With the BOGO offers or coupons?

I saved $38 Tuesday night in coupons which I never use so I was happy. My bill was still $157 though.

WOW-that's great!

I went grocery shopping as well on Saturday morning & used coupons and tried to take advantage of some of the deals I saw. My total bill was around $156, but I was happy with that as it used to be a lot higher when I wasn't carefully picking things out & sticking to my list.
