Hope for Tomorrow, Grace for Today...what it means...

For in this HOPE we are saved. But HOPE that is seen is no HOPE at all. Who HOPES for what he already has?

~Romans 8:24

And if by GRACE, then it is no longer by works; if it were, GRACE would no longer be GRACE.

~Romans 11:6

Getting Some Deals!!!

Here is my score from Albertson's today!! I paid $1 for all of this! Actually, I only paid a $1 for the 10 Michelina's frozen entrees.

Here is what I did:

Transaction 1:
1 Toll House cookie $2 (-$1 IP coupon and -1 DBL)
10 Michelina's frozen entrees $5 (- 2 $1/5 coupons, - $2 for 2 DBL)
Total: $1

Transaction 2:
1 Toll House Cookie $2 (-$1 IP coupon and -1 DBL)
2 Tree Top Juices $2 (-$1/2 IP coupon and -1 DBL)
1 Capri Sun $2 (-$1 coupon and -1 DBL)
Total: $0

Transaction 3:
2 Smart Taste Pasta (-$1 coupon, -$.75 IP coupon -2 DBLS)
1 KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce (-$1 coupon and - DBL)
Total: $0

I got 2 of the sets of dbls from my papers and the 3rd set from the customer service desk. The McMinnville Albies is very coupon friendly!!

Other Deals:
I have gotten 10 other boxes of Capri Suns for a total of $3.75 after buying some coupons on the internet.

I bought 7 boxes of Cap'n Crunch, 5 boxes of Quaker Life and 8 boxes of Quaker Granola Bars for a grand total of $12 after buying the coupons for that.

I should explain this concept to newbies and non-couponers. There are folks out there who buy many Sunday papers, cut coupons and sell them (really selling their labor) in bundles on ebay. It may seem silly to buy coupons, but by buying the paper or printing coupons, we are also buying them. This way we can get 10 or 20 or even more of the coupons we need while just paying for what we want. $1 off coupons are usually less than $.20 each with shipping. I figure that is a savings of $.80 and if I go to a store that dbls coupons, I am saving even more!!

:-) I NEVER EVER EVER thought I would buy coupons! I am addicted now! Pay attention to the deal blogs (I check frugal living nw and www.hip2save every day). They usually get tips ahead of time on sales at stores and you then get a heads up on what to look for.
