Sunday Savings

Today after church, my husband stopped at Giant Eagle with me to pick up groceries. I have been watching the weekly ads, and planning my trips for when things I want to stock up on are on sale, and I can take advantage of Giant Eagle's coupon doubling policy. This time I also was able to use a few eOffers that I had loaded to my GE Advantage Card. After two months of couponing, I am finally starting to see savings. Because now I'm not only getting great deals on things I need for this week, but I've also started being able to stock up for the future, when I can get things now for a great price. We are stocked up on basics like toothpaste, razors, contact solution, cereal, toilet paper, paper towels, soup, snack bars, mac & cheese... Yay!

So here is today's shopping spree (I won't always remember the exact coupon date/source-I'm still learning this blogging thing) Any coupons under $.99 were doubled:
