Coupons and Savings

I heard a radio program where the value of coupons was being questioned; does anyone really save with those silly things? The host thought someone should keep track of their annual savings so we would know the truth. Of course, I thought that sounded like lots of fun.

Today my total at Albertsons was $107.09. I saved $50.66. This brought my total to $56.43. My weekly budget is $40.00 so I went a bit over but in my defense, I did bring my little boys with me and my brain was getting a little tired. I was bummed that they were out of the Peter Pan peanut butter on sale for $0.99 since I had a $1.00 coupon. Oh well. Let them eat Nutella!!

The kids are excited because we bought marshmallows for their marshmallow shooters.
