Operation Christmas Donation 2011 – New Additions Today, $6.37 for $48 Worth of Food

extreme couponing canada

Instead of separating all my donation items from today’s shopping trip post, I thought it would be easier to include all the items and separate them out in a photo to show what I’m adding to the donation.

For details on the items purchased and their respective stores, take a look at that post linked above. In the interest of keeping a running tally of my $100 budget spent, the way I’ve calculated discounts for these items when they’re grouped with other items is to take the coupon off evenly throughout. For example the crackers were purchased with a $5 off when you buy 5 Kraft Items coupon, so I take $1 off each box of crackers.

Here’s the breakdown for these items:

3 x Premium Plus Crackers $1.99 – 10% SPC – (3) $0.75 coupons – $0.50 each (portion of $10 off WUS $40 coupon) = $0.54 each
4 x Ritz Munchables 2/$4 – (4) $0.75 coupons from tearpads (N/A anymore) – $5 WUB 5 Kraft instore coupon = $0.25 each
3 x Rice thins crackers 2/$4 – (3) $0.75 coupons from tearpads (N/A anymore) + above Kraft Coupons = $0.25 each
6 x Hunts Tomato Sauce $1 – (3) $1 WUB 2 coupons from tearpads (N/A anymore) = $0.50 each

Subtotal: $25.97
Coupons used: $19.60
Total paid: $6.37

  1. When I first started cononuipg, I used the expanding envelope. I soon realized that I had to sort thru coupons constantly. I have now gone to the binder with baseball card holders and regular page protectors. I have placed indexing tabs to the groups I like. I have the option to add an index tab when needed. I place my store adds, p&g inserts, and All You magazine in their own page protector. I only clip the coupons that I will I know use. The others I keep with the insert filing method. Sometimes I will find a money making deal that I can go to the coupon and use to get other things I normally would not have a coupon for. I always scan the clearance slelfs and see if I also have a coupon for the item. The binder makes this possible. My Winn Dixie often times places stuff on clearance since the manufacturer changed the packaging or something. I love cononuipg and I just try to adjust to my needs.
