Back in the coupon groove

I took a break from coupons for a few months, but when my stockpile started getting low, I decided I better get back into the game.

This past week was Super Double Coupons at Kmart. During Super Double week, Kmart will double coupons up to $2. So, a $2 coupon becomes a $4 coupon. Stack that with sale prices and you can really get some great bargains.

I made a total of eight trips to Kmart. Everything listed below I got for less than $17!!! Before coupons I would have paid: $262.83 plus tax. Also, when you bought 4 boxes of Rice Krispies, there was a rebate offer for a $5 Kmart gift card. If you figure that in, then I spent $12.

Here are a few pictures I took...these include five different stops at Kmart. There are three trips I didn't take pictures of. I should add that some of this will be going to the food pantry at church.


Before I made all those trips to Kmart, I invested in a set of shelves to use for our growing stockpile, and I have almost filled those shelves this week. (click to enlarge)
