    I love price matching if I don't have to fight every item. But if I'm in the mood to argue eh... Saved a sh$$ ton last year doing it. I'd say during the spring last year when I was doing it and the couponing plus stacking together I did probably $1700 ( best count ) and paid no more than $400 including regular groceries / meat / fresh fruit / vegetables / taxables... but yeah... you have to have patience and be in the mood. Or in the mood to argue.

    It was a lot better back then when Walmart would match PUblixs BOGO with Walmart prices but that ended.

    A couple days before end of February another grocery trip and another $8 in sales / coupons bring coupon / sale total to $154.03 for the month.

    So... best I can figure is $494.30 in all groceries, HBA, pet etc and paid $340.27. Not to bad.

    I had one of those cashiers this morning that wanted to treat me like a criminal of some sort because I used 12 or 14 printed coupons. I guess my irritation belongs less on her and more on the folks who try to scam that way, but I don't need to be treated with suspicion because I'm looking to trim costs!

    Haven't checked in for w while, but my totals so far this year in coupon savings-
    Jan- $15.25
    Feb-$10.25
    March-$11.90 (so far)

    The coupons (I'm only doing the printable ones at the moment) seem really hit-or-miss with my store's sale items, and I haven't been in the drugstore 'game' or to Shaw's in a while. I'm also trying to up my Aldi shopping, and they don't accept coupons. So on one hand I wish I were saving more with coupons, on the other I'm happy I'm doing what makes sense for us right now.

    I'm currently at $15.90 saved with coupons for the month. I haven't played the 'CVS game' in quite a while and have been hitting Aldi more often (no coupons accepted). But I'm pleased with the grocery budget, so it's all good! Even if I average only $15 a month saved with coupons for the year, that's still $180 extra staying in my wallet.

    hey guys. Just found out Costco.com sells checks at a really reduced rate. My C.U. was outrageous. I paid 1/3 off the site on duplicate checks. Dont use very many anymore but stray stuff I want to have them.

    Saved $17.15 in coupons in March. Kind of missing the year when I saved about $2,200 in coupons, but I'm just not doing the same things to get to such a total (nor do I have the need/drive to at the moment).

    Saving $17.15 is better than owing $17.15

    I know what you mean about the $2,200 though. It's an awesome feeling.

    This one isn't household. It's work related and paid for but it's still us so I'm counting cause it was a necessary.
    Hubs got cut for the second time in a week and first aid stuff was at a bare minimum here so a trip to Walgreens.
    Between BOGO ( this was crap house luck ), their card and sale it says I saved 23% ... $11.93. I'm counting on my savings on this challenge.

    Anyone needing Butterflies ... Gauze ... they're BOGO in Walgreen brand.

    I'll take the extra of each home for use. Also peroxide was 2 for $3 and I'm out at home so one home there too.

    Know probably can be cheaper elsewhere but this is 5 minutes from work and not running half hour to Walfart.

    Saved $8 using Shaw's MyMixx digital coupons last night. It was the first time I tried it, and for once, there seemed to be many that weren't just copies of the other ones available online. I always avoided those as the myMixx don't qualify for doubling, but the printables do. I got things like a dozen eggs for .79 and Pepperidge Farm cookies for .99. I'll keep my eye on MyMixx while my daughter's activity lands me close to Shaws to grab any great deals each week. Sadly, there were sold out of some of the deals I wanted, but I didn't fuss with getting a raincheck for them.

    Up to $8.50 for the month.
