I have not done it very often. Mostly because I simply am too lazy to try to line up coupons for the ads and I also don't like to buy pre-packaged food. But it is cheap and my husband likes it. He does not care if I make it from white or wheat. So in an attempt to make do with less I am going to try using coupons etc to be more frugal.

I went on Saturday when I was able to use double coupons. I also did 2 other bargins. I bought 24 boxes of cereal. Every 6 boxes I received a $10 discount. I spent $20 on GM so I received a $10 gas refund. And I also received coupons for 4 gallons of milk and 4 dz eggs. Everything I bought I used coupons for.

I wish I had taken a picture of everything I bought. It looks like more then that list does! To put into perspective 24 boxes of cereal... think 2 rubber made tubs. Since I am just starting out on the couponing thing I am not set up to do pictures. I will try to do it next time. Which won't be this week! LOL!
