Double Coupon Thursdays

I recently found out that my local grocery store Broulims doubles manufacturer's coupons up to $1.00 every Thursday. And there's no limit!

I basically went through my little coupon portfolio and found all the $1.00 coupons and pretty much used them all. I got a majority of things on sale too. I'm still new to this whole couponing thing, but I'm still pretty excited.

My total was $118.53. Sales knocked off $22.55 and coupons knocked off $30.00. I ended up paying $66.88. I saved a total of $52.55 or 44%. Not bad, especially for not having to drive twenty minutes to Walmart and brave the souless hordes that frequent there.

I think Thursday shopping trips are a new tradition.

LOL..."souless hoards" i love it.

i really should get into couponing more. we spend way too much on groceries and most of the time, it feels like i didn't even buy anything!

I totally agree with "soulless hoards!" In fact, we call Walmart the Great and Spacious building! We prefer Target for our giant store shopping needs.
