Friday Finals 10/16 – Florida

I got so focused on the rest of the drugstore deals that I forgot to get this up last night!  We had an unexpected week off from coupons this week, long story short our car is the in the shop with all the coupons in it and we are staying with family.  It was a blessing that it died in a town that we planning on staying in for a few days!

I actually haven’t needed to grocery shop since we got here except for three things.  We are in a very tiny town in Florida so my only option was the gas station mini mart…  I could drive 30 miles to go to the “Red Rabbit” but I am not up on the sales or coupon policies so it probably wouldn’t have helped.

For 3 things I paid $14.35

Normal Southern Savers prices for them maybe $3.50

It was very painful… but reminds me why we coupon.

We bought:

All Detergent – over $7 (my normal price $1.90)
Salt $2.39 (on sale at Walgreens next week for .50)
Always… $4.50 (normal price .99 or less)

No matter how tired you get from coupons, one trip paying mini mart prices should cure you!!
