This shopping trip was a little bit tricky because I was buying A LOT of produce. That being said I did get some awesome deals!  I went to a local grocery store that does not double coupons.  I try to go to this store as often as possible because they support local farmers!  The only catch is that they do not double coupons and a few of their items can be a little more expensive.  As long as you shop the sales and the produce department you can find great savings!  This trip I purchased $226.44 worth of product for $69.08!  That is a 71% savings and a very successful day. Here are the items that I purchased:


6lbs of Roma Tomatoes

1 English Cucumber

1 Butternut Squash

5lbs  Red and Yellow Onions

1 Bunch Green Onions

2 Bunches Cilantro

4 Jalapenos

1 Cantaloupe

1 Bunch Radishes

1 Bunch Parsley

3 lbs Cherries

6 Jumbo globe artichokes

1 Eggplant

12 Boxes of Cake Mix

6 Packs 2% Kraft Shredded Cheese

5 Cans Enchilada Sauce

5 Pillsbury Grand’s

1 pk Mission Tortillas

1 XL Tapatillo Sauce

6 Loaves Wheat Bread

1 Box Band Aids

1 Candy Bar

3 pk Frozen Waffles

1 pk Frozen Breakfast Sandwiches

1 pk Frozen Rosemary Ciabatta Rolls

2 pks Frozen Veggies

1 Gillette Body Wash

6 Yogurts

2pk Instant Mashed Potatoes

1 Weber Seasoning

Total: $226.44

I paid: $69.08

Saved: 71%

I hope this encourages you to save big at your regular grocery store on healthy items!  I have also taken up freezing things like bread and salsa so I can stock up on the best deals.  Not only does it save us tons of money but it is convenient to be able to pull meals out of the freezer (no dishes!). I hope this encourages all of you small towners that do not have stores that double coupons.  With the right planning you can save big anywhere!

      Hi Barngirl and Jenny,

      Don’t feel overwhelmed. Start out small until you get the hang of it. Use the store matchups to match your coupons to the sales going on in the stores. This will give you the lowest price on your groceries. Check out our getting organized page to figure out how to get the most out of your coupons. Lastly get extra coupons from our coupon database to save on a variety of products! Happy Couponing!

    Will someone please tell me how to save on basic goods like meats vegetables and dairy. Couponing sounds great but my husband and I are trying to stay away from processed foods. Our biggest grocery expense is meat.

      Hi Beckie,
      This price sheet helps me a lot with saving money on meat. I know if meat goes on sale for these prices or lower that it is a GREAT deal. I then stock up and freeze the meat. I get enough to last until the next sale. I hope this helps!
