# My mom called me BORING

February 15th, 2009 at 03:33 pm

lol... I'm sorry she feels that way. Calls me boring then asks for some of my stash!

She said I was boring because I emailed her my shopping trip from today.

Ok, so here's my grocery haul from today! Net result: \$8.93. Really \$28.93 out of pocket and I have \$20.00 in catalina to spend. Catalina are those coupons that print at the register, good on your next order.

Bought on trip one:
10 soups for 10.00
minus 2.25 in coupons
total = 7.75
Got back 10.00 catalina
This deal required 25.00 spent on products. Regular shelf price is 2.50 each.

4 warm delights = 6.67
2 frostings = 3.34
2 crescents = 4.00
minus 5.00 in coupons
total = 12.35
Got back 10.00 catalina
This deal required purchase of 10 participating items

Bought on trip two:
1 warm delight = 1.67
8 grands = 10.00
minus 4.55 in coupons
total = 10.46
Used 10.00 catalina from first trip
Got back 10.00 catalina
This deal required purchase of 10 participating items

4 Wesson canola oils = 10.00
Used 10.00 catalina from first trip
Got back 10.00 catalina
This deal required 25.00 spent on participating products. Regular shelf price is 7.99 EACH!!!!!

I got that steak for \$1.37, those pizzas (so DH doesn't starve while I'm gone this week) were \$1.00 each, and DH grabbed the pudding (on sale!) that the mutt is headed for.

So I have 20.00 in catalina left to spend next time.
I can roll these catalina into more free soup - and more free soup! I will do that while I'm at my mom's this week and give her lots of soup. She asked for a cooking oil, and that's it.

That's great! Where did you shop?

2. frugaltexan75 Says:

Doesn't sound like a boring shopping trip at all. Good job on the deals.

3. whitestripe Says:

great job on the shopping! i can't believe how cheap it all is by the end after coupons and stuff. unfortunately australia doesnt have that much to offer in way of coupons/rebates etc. and also we don't really eat that much prepackaged stuff.

BORING and then wants some? Hope she's joking!

littlemama: this was at Shaws, a supermarket in the Northeast.

frugaltexan: ha ha ha - I knew it would be appreciated HERE!

whitestripe: we try not to eat a lot of prepackaged stuff. We buy a lot of fresh items and keep things like canned soup on hand for a quick meal. It beats ordering out. If I keep this up, I'll have to donate stuff to a food bank. I just wont have room for everything.

baselle: I'm pretty sure she was joking. Hard to tell with her. She later said she was shutting her computer off cuz she was sick of me bragging. I'd be glad to help her get into this, but she doesn't seem interested! I'll roll some catalina into some free soup for her while I'm up there this week.

I'm boring right now, but darn proud of it!

(Tired of drama, really.)

7. dmontngrey Says:

Oh boy, right there with ya! Boring is so preferred over drama. Had enough drama this weekend and I suspect this week will be the same. Bleah!

8. snoopycool Says:

I don't find that boring in the least!
