I think we are to the point now where we have enough stuff stockpiled to wait and buy things when there is an awesome deal. We are also at a point where we are cutting back on our monthly grocery budget. It is a great feeling to know that we have saved so much money already, and now we don't have to worry about buying things! I love being able to go into my pantry and just pull out what I need. This week Albertsons was having a promo where you get $10 off the purchase of a gift card for every $30 you spend on select Procter and Gamble items. I bought Albertsons gift cards with my transactions, used them on other transactions, and ended up with all these things! The retail cost would have been $173.84. We got 10 boxes of Cheerios (good thing, because they are both mine and Nolan's favorite cereal), four 100oz bottles of Tide, a bottle of Downy, 8 cans of Pringles (Aaron was excited about that one), 2 boxes of tea bags, 3 boxes of Hamburger Helper, 2 big bottles of shampoo, and 6 jars of applesauce (another of Nolan's favorite foods). With the P&G promo, coupons, and sales, I spent $66.66. Couponing success!
