How I Saved Over 80% at the Grocery Store Yesterday

Today was a fun day. It was raining and Isaac and I needed something to do. So, we shopped! Many people ask me if I go to 5 stores a week and I say no. Well, normally no! But if I’m in the mood for a coupon rush or if there’s really good deals somewhere I may make an exception. With the rain starting to fall I thought we’d head out. Here’s the picture of what I scored.

Total $23.08

First Stop: Menards. Those deals are here.
House wash
Chalk reel x 2
Microfiber cloths
Furniture polish (found $1 off coupon on each!) x 2

Lighter x 2
Total: $44.11 including tax plus a $10 purchase
Will receive $40.50 back after MIR
Final Price: $3.61 (The $10 I spent out of pocket we needed so I’m not counting it!!! LOL!)
