One of the objections people often have for not using coupons is that coupons are only for "name brand items" which is often true, or that they cook from scratch. I thought the same thing until I realized that you can get name brand, relatively healthy food (with the occasional junk splurge for treats) at great discount when you combine sales, coupons and catalinas. Here is a picture of a recent trip to Fred Meyer, where I got fresh Spinach for $0.99/bag, turkey sausage for $1.50 each, and Smart Taste Pasta for $0.33/box. Not bad for healthy food we'll use!
Here is a recent trip to Walgreen's where I spent under $9 out of pocket, but recieved $15 in register rewards back! It was great for getting some items I really needed. The medicine was just a bonus. Anyone nearby need any cold medicine?:)
And for the grandma's who don't care about my deal pics, but really want grandbaby pics, here is M, drinking out of her straw-sippy.
