The grocery store ate my shopping list!!!

I have detrmined that the universe does not want me to coupon. It's true!! Before you gufaw and snort, hear me out. I threw a lot of my papers in a pile and then when I went to get the coupons, NOT THERE. *sigh* I finally found one coupon, out of two so I Guess 50% isn't bad, and I only found one couponed deal that I was REALLY interested in but oh well.

So I got to the store, and started shopping, I was pretty excited about some of the stuff I was getting, like $4 off on petite serloin stakes (saved $15 right there) and spaghetti O's 2 for a dollar. Then it came to the pork chops. I don't usually buy them so I don't know how good of a deal $1.29 a pound for them is. Anyway I picked them up, tucked my list underneath my arm, bagged the chops and put them in the cart and grabbed shopping list to see what other great deals I had found, and what else we needed that we couldn't get on sale. My hand clasped around empty air. I was so frusterated. We got through shopping, and I spent a total of 83 something. I have no idea how much I saved because Macey's dosen't tell you. So now I feel frusterated, because I spent more than I planned to, and have no clue how to figure out if I saved enough to make it worth it.

So next week...I guess we try again, but if it's like this again, I'm giving up!

Dang! You and Kendra are amazing to me...I confess, I've never used cupons before! You'll have to teach me. BTW: I think we need to have a cousin girls' night out. Which would mean a road trip for me...but I need to get to know you better! Let me know if you're interested.

It would be really AWESOME to have you come and have us all hang out. You, me, Tiff and Jamie, and any of the other cousins that I have forgotten were around here. Isn't it like a REALLY long drive for you though?

Jena said...

Whatever drive it would be, it would be totally worth it! (I think it's only about 4/5 hours...not to shabby.
I'll talk to my hubby and we can start setting a date! I'm glad you're in!

Kendra said...
