In My Cart-- $210.31 of Groceries. I Paid $15.31

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

Couponing has been a bit slow here. I've had other things going on, have a packed pantry and there weren't a ton of deals happening. So I haven't posted since June 1! So this is about 3 weeks of couponing in one post. Some great deals even if it took a bit longer to snag them all. 

My Shopping Totals This Week

I paid $15.31 for $210.31 in Groceries!

Rebates help a TON on lowering that final cost. I added my favorite rebate apps to the bottom of the post plus some printable coupons so be sure to check that out!

--Ibotta rebates & $5 bonus for the Luna bars (on clearance) and Tasty Shakes. I wouldn't buy either normally but wanted the $5 bonus and needed 2 more rebates. Sometimes I buy things I wouldn't normally in order to make money. Buying those 3 things paid for my veggies (and gave me extra profit)

Seriously if you aren't using rebate apps you are missing out. Yes, they take a little bit of extra time but it is SO worth it. I've made back $2000 on ibotta in the last 2 years and over $80 on Fetch this past year which pays for my kindle books!
Ibotta: HERE
Fetch: HERE (use referral code V1MJA)
