10/10/13 Today’s Shopping Trip

I haven’t been out one of my weekly shopping trips for a while because I had been sick for a long time. So it must be the time to get out there and see what deals that I can pick up. Two stores in mind. Festival Foods and Gordy’s County Market. Awesome sales, great buys and it just happens that as you can see by the picture, I have tons of coupons for this excursion.

I made up my blank shopping list on Excel to fit my needs. This way I can track the regular prices,  sale price, total # of product, store, description of product, store Q’s, manufacturer’s Q’s and then final. That way I know exactly what I have for coupons, the prices & what I will be saving. It’s taken me awhile to get it to where it worked best for me. But now that I have it as needed, all I have to do is print out my shopping list & add the coupons.

Here is a picture of the products that I bought from both stores. Everything except for two items had a coupon, so I thought that I did really well. Take a look.

This is the store’s savings amount by the sale price. I am currently figuring out the regular prices on a spreadsheet but I know it’s over 70% off the full price. I was pretty happy with it, and so was the cashier’s. I would say, it was a good day after all.

Have a good weekend all.
