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.
