... the cashier commented that I had some good coupons. Yes, yes I do. Free pads and yogurt and juice?? Yes please!

Oh - and let's not forget to add the e
xtra unexpected stuff... 

Ground Beef which I forgot to factor in... $7 
Boxed Pizza for an emergency management kind of day... $5 

Total spent: $ 68.74 

Meal plan to follow... 



  1. Where do you get 'free' coupons!!!

  2. All over...

    A while back, Kelloggs had the 'Share Your Breakfast' promo - each box of cereal contained a free breakfast item (your choice). That's where I got the V8 Fusion and a bunch of yogurt.

    The stayfree was a $2 cpn applied to a sale of $1.97 (That's the trick - using coupons on a sale...)

    And the Liberte was part of a facebook promo (there are others) where, if you like their page, they give you a free product sample.
