One of the really cool things about couponing is that I get to try out some different stuff that I otherwise wouldn't buy. This could also be a downfall if you aren't careful. If you don't approach couponing correctly, you could find yourself actually spending more money than if you didn't use your coupon. Here's today's scoop:
Wal*Mart: 5 boxes Velveeta Cheesy Skillets, .98/box, 2 boxes Jimmy Dean Pancakes and Sausage Links Breakfast Bowls, .50/box. Total before coupons: $13.90. Total after coupons: $5.90. That's a savings of 58%. Not bad!
One thing I don't like about Wal*Mart's receipts is that they don't show you your store savings. Meaning, it shows that the skillets were $1.98, which was actually the store sale price and not the regular retail price. For example, Dillons will show on their receipt the regular retail price AND the sale price. I feel like with Wal*Mart unless I happen to know the regular retail price of an item then I don't really know what my savings truly are. I can guesstimate, but that's usually not good enough for someone like me who likes my spreadsheet to be complete and correct! Hah! Wow, I just sounded very nerdy there. I should quit while I'm ahead. Happy Thursday!
