June 12th Deals

Sunday, June 13, 2010

This weekend was my first experience with couponing in a long time. It's kind of like planning a battle. You have to have a strategy (buying what you need), armed with the proper tools (paper/ads) and secret weapons (coupons). Once you get the hang of it, its like a fun game to play!

Saturday 6/12/10
I went to two stores: Hyvee and Walmart.

I took advantage of several sales in the ads but didn't use coupons on those so I won't note those here. But just to mention, the sale on chicken was fabulous! $0.88 per lb for chicken breasts w/rib bone. I just made the most delicious chicken tortilla soup in the crockpot from it! Makes me want to run back and buy more! Original price of chicken: $2.29 a lb. Good deal I'd say. So always check the ads for the meat deals.

OP= Original Price
SP= Sale Price
C= Coupon
SC= Store Coupon (usually found in their ad paper or website)

Specific Coupons: In the paper there are 3 different coupon sets.
P&G - Proctor & Gamble booklet comes in the paper the beginning of each month.
SS - Smart Source
RP - Red Plum
If I write something like (SS 5/16) it means I got the coupon from the May 16th Smart Source.
