Grocery Savings

This is where you find out how much of a nerd I am sometimes. I look forward to receiving my newspaper on Wednesdays because I'm anxious to peruse the grocery store ads. Like a dork, I'll sit there and find deals on things we use, match the deals with coupons, and head to the store when I get the chance.

Today I went to Albertson's. They had Newman's Own spaghetti sauce (the only kind I will eat because most spaghetti sauce is gross) 2/$4. Add in a 50 cent coupon I had that Albertson's doubled, and I got 2 jars for $3. I picked up a loaf of their fresh-baked French bread for free because I'd filled out a survey a while back for a free loaf. I bought a can of Rotel, which was 75 cents. However, I had a 30 cent coupon, which was tripled, so that was free. Strawberries were on sale 2lbs/$3, and I bought 1lb. for $1.50.

For a grand total of $4.50, I bought 2 jars of organic spaghetti sauce, a can of Rotel, a fresh-baked loaf of French bread, and 1lb. of strawberries. Not too shabby!

Now now, what's so nerdy/dorky about finding deals and coupons? It's called a plain old good idea. I tell my wife to tell people she's a domestic engineer; if she had a job in her college major field, she would probably be finding ways to cut costs at her hypothetical engineering company.

However, one of her official job titles is "JunkMale's wife," so one of her primary duties is to try to save us as much money possible and run the household as efficiently as possible.

Congratulations on your good deals! I love when the new grocery store ads come out each week too.(so maybe I'm also a nerd?)
