In My Cart -- I Paid $8.60 for $61.69 of Groceries

I decided to start sharing my couponing adventures on the blog!

My Shopping Totals This Week
$61.69 of Groceries for... $8.60

It was a surprisingly quiet start to April couponing. I didn't need much (I don't usually anymore) and while there were some deals most didn't catch my eye. Next week will be WAY different but for this week it was a simple one of buying some freebies and a few new to me items and just a couple necessary items for recipes.

This is where Ibotta and other rebates come in handy. The Ragu and Ronzoni BOTH had ibotta rebates and were on sale in store. With the rebates it made them all FREE or money makers. So I was actually PAID to buy them in the end. This happens quite often with new products.

Many grocery stores have digital coupons in their apps. Every once in a while a new product comes out and they put up a FREE digital coupon. That was the case with the oat milk! So I got that free.

Foodlion also offers a program called Shop & Earn. They give you categories each shop and earn money off future trips. I completed mine in March and was given $11 to spend in April for free. That paid for my 66cent grapes. Making my trip entirely free and leaving me 10 and change for my next trip.

Again with ibotta! The Gatorade protein bars were 99cents in store and had a $1 ibotta rebate. So free!

Not free but $1! On sale in store, $1 printable coupon, $1.50 ibotta rebate. Oat milk is the new it item this month. I've seen 4 new brands of Oat milk. It means lots of coupons and rebates are floating around, too!

*gasp* A full price trip! That accounted for half of my expenses this week. lol The great thing about couponing is you can save SO much on everything that a full price trip now and again isn't horrible. Not too many items but I needed all 3 for blog posts I'm doing in April and I couldn't wait for sales/deals and just had to buy them.
