For example, we went to Cub foods on Superbowl Sunday (it wasn't very busy during the big game!) and shopped with a list that was mostly BOGO or we had a coupon for. Basically we spent $200 for over $300 worth of groceries, saving over $100! We felt very good about that trip.
I've been also finding blogs and resources online for shopping, and find the 'experts' claim they often save over 50% on their groceries. Most claim they even have received such deals, that they walk away with groceries AND a little extra cash in their pocket.
So last week, I went to our local Jubilee Foods grocer, intending to get only BOGO offers. I was successful, and along with a couple coupons I spent over $40 for $80 worth of groceries... almost achieving the 50% savings!
This week, Jubilee only had one BOGO, but they did have a deal where if you purchased 10 participating items (and had $20 worth of total items), they would take $5 off your total grocery bill. Looking over the list, I recognized a few items I had coupons for... including Green Giant frozen vegetables, Hamburger Helpers, and Betty Crocker Au Gratin potatoes. I knew I might be able to break the 50% margin with these deals....
So I went today, and here's the receipt. I spent $9.94 for $22.58 in groceries, saving $12.64 (or 56%) worth in coupons. The advantage at Jubilee is they double some of the coupons. Here's the proof.
So I'm aiming to achieve the 50% savings again, except at a larger scale when we need to go to Cub foods again.
