I went to Albertson's today and bought...this.
Guess what I paid for it?
Okay, I'll tell you, $19.90.
Do you wanna know what I saved? $99.68 That's an 83% savings.
Betsie, I've learned the tricks.
I will have to admit, it was kinda fun to see the numbers drop and I think it's a little addicting.
Some of the stuff is not what I would usually buy, but I couldn't beat the price and it's great for storage.
Brinley was excited because I bought 5 boxes of fruit snacks, (They weren't the kind I usually buy), and toaster strudels (we never buy).

Great job Arah! Have you been reading fuugalchic's blog? I am waiting to do my Albertsons shopping until I get my coupons from ebay which should be tomorrow.

Oh my gosh, how on earth did you do that? Walter would love me if I could do shopping like that, then I would have more money to buy scrapping supplies. LOL!!!

AWESOME job Arah! I am so proud of you. Isn't it nice to get treats for cheap and to get food storage? It was good talking to you just for a second today. And Sarah is so cute. YOu are so lucky to have 3beautiful girls.
