Are Coupons Worth it?

Saturday, April 18, 2009 | | 2 comments
Here are two of Sheshopssmart reader's recent experiences with coupons! I would dare say coupons ARE worth it!

This is from my good friend Emily. We both looked into Grocery Smarts at the same time and had our concerns. Needless to say we are both completley obsessed. Thanks Emily! Here is her story!

Here is my last trip to Albertsons. I had "baby" with me.....-- making my cart look hilarious! Baby fills most of it so I layed chips and light things on his lap and on top of his car seat. I should have taken a picture at the store. People probably thought that there was something wrong with me, or that I was afraid I would never see a grocery store again. They can think whatever they want though.

I roll up to the check stand and the cashier says WOW you are buying a lot. I said UH HUH and I have a TON of coupons. I like to warn them. I feel like when I dont, that they get a little bit snippy with me. So, she scans it all, then takes my coupons. AND THE FUN BEGAN!

So, the Preferred card does its thing in the computer and after a few I think she probably thought this is dumb and this girl is a tight-wad. Then I said we just passed the saved $100 point she looked at me in disbelief. It was the funniest look I think a cashier has ever given me. Then we hit 120. She goes- "how did your organize this?" I tell her about the system but she says she doesnt have time to work with coupons. I tell her she does and that its easy! Savings hit $ 150!

It was a very fun day! I feel like a total dork sometimes and I love it! On your blog you had a list of things that you said about being obsessed- what made me really laugh is that I was going to post a list on my blog and it had like all the same things. Right down to the dream about grocery shopping (mine was a nightmare- I didnt have my coupons or wallet).

Last week I left the store with the biggest grin on my face, feeling so happy that I was able to buy things at such a deal. Anyway...sorry about the novel I have just written you. It is dumb but I could seriously talk about savings all day long! I love it! My picture is missing 3 other gallons of milk, 3 bags of shrimp and a turkey and 4 pkgs of cheese. There just was not room on the counter, and "baby" was hungry and done watching mom stare at groceries.

I bought
3 boxes rice krispies
9 boxes of jello
3 dh cake mixes
5 stove top stuffings
3 ragu sauces
2 5-pack mac and cheese
2 kraft mayo
1 box honey bunches
