I saved a total of 51% on this purchase!!!! This was my first shopping trip using the tips from she shops smart!! I didn't have any coupons out of the newspapers, but I load coupons on my Smith's card and then used the coupons that you can print off. I can't wait to see what I can save by using coupons out of the newspapers!!!!!

I went to the mega sale and spent $117.23 and saved $294.66 I was so excited....

I didn't keep my receipt, so I don't know how much I saved when you include fresh values. But the total before coupons and the mega event savings was $23.59. I paid $10.29 and my savings were $13.30 + fresh values savings.

I spent $34 and saved $45...I didn't take a picture :(

I spent $16.74 and saved $15.42. I have had better trips, but this was still pretty good.

I went with my MIL and didn't keep the receipt. According to my memory, I spent $10.50, save $55.80!

I loaded up on stuff we only eat when we go camping, (go-gurt, frozen is a favorite) just in time for Labor Day. I spent $34.62 and saved $34.55 plus got a $3.50 OYNSO. I could have done better but the skittles were a good deal as well and they are a camping must-have.

Today was my first couponing shopping trip. I spent $37.45 and saved $33.88. I got 30 Mega Event items. Comparatively, it doesn't seem like I saved very much. Would you guys detail what you got for those amounts when the savings was WAY more than the spending? Thanks!

I spent$52.89 and save $87.46. I bought 44 items. I love that every item averaged out to be just over a dollar each.....including 3 bottles of Disney vitamins!!!

I spent $32.32 and saved $76.24!(71% savings!)I bought three cases of Sobe, which were my only Mega Event Items. But, my husband loves them so I had to stock up on the .39 cent deal! I also bought steak(saved $22 just on one package!) and danimals yogurt!

Smith's is quickly becoming my favorite grocery store! This week I took advantage of the Pillsbury rolls sale. My husband loves hot bread for dinner. They're easy and now they're cheap! I spent $10.88 and saved $13.13. I bought 10 pillsbury rolls, 3 pony tailers and one unplannd and full priced tomato! My 2 year old daughter grabbed one right off the stand and took a bite! We ate the rest of it later for lunch.

I went to albertsons and spent $41.60 and got a $5.00 spending on my next trip and a $25.00 mail in rebate. So I spent a total of 11.60. Not bad for one of my first coupon trips..

I spent $41.60, and earned a $5.00 off next trip and a $25.00 mail in rebate. SO I spent a total of $11.60

Wahoo!

My baby is just starting table food and LOVES crescent rolls, so was super stoked when I saw the sale this week.

I went to Smiths on Wednesday - spent $79.25 and saved $121.63. Pretty good!! This included 13 cases of soda and alot of other good things. wish I had a picture!

I've done several transactions. Today I spent $8.03 and saved $27!

I spent $85 and saved $240.00. I was able to get some great deals at Walmart, Albies, and Walgreens (8 containers of the Huggies wipes for .49 a piece and carmel Poppycock popcorn for .24 a bag). I was also proud to get 18 cans of Libby veggies for .40 a can at Walmart using the coupons in last week's Parade mag. My pantry and food storage are looking good (I'm sure you can all relate!). Some good deals this week! I hope the doubles are in tomorrow's paper.

I just realized that I combined my Walgreens, Walmart and Smith's trips. So please delete my previous post. This is the real one.

At the Smith's Mega Event, I did three transactions, used $20 in cats,

Spent = $41

Saved = $103

I spent $45.00 and saved $56.67 which was a savings of 57%. Shopping smart is so much fun and very worth it. Thanks for teaching me how to do it!

I spent $59.56 and saved $37.45. I do more impulse shopping than I should and I'm still trying to get the hang of the coupon thing. My downfall is that I don't go prepared with a plan B or plan C for the things they are sold out of!

My downfall is that I don't go prepared with a plan B or plan C for the things they are sold out of! I love the help I get here with She Shops Smart. I'm here at least 3x a week!

I spent $31.00 and I saved $68.00. There was a five dollars off of a $50.00 purchase coupon in the Sunday paper. Give checker $5.00 off coupon first, then other coupons. I saved tons on mega sale items, but also bought 6 gallons of milk, syrup, activia and about $5.oo of produce. My only frustration was not being able to get a raincheck for mega sale items that were out of stock.
