Waking up this morning and seeing a super special message on facebook from Marsh Supermarkets (I pity you if you don't have Marsh Supermarkets around you today) that they would TRIPLE all coupons up to $1 through Monday was exactly what my emotionally worn soul needed.
Nothing gets me excited like an opportunity to go hounding for deals with my coupons. And with $1 coupons being worth $3- the deals were a plenty to be had!
Before my coupons (after my shopper loyalty card), my total was $254.57. After my coupons, I paid just $27.02 cold hard cash. (plus I got back 2 $4 coupons for my next shopping trip because of buying $24 in Nestle Ice Cream- of which I of course used coupons on).
I love you Marsh. I love you coupons. I love you free groceries!
Because some of my items were less than $3, and some were more, the overage from any coupons went toward my more expensive items- like the bacon, pork roasts, etc. For example- the Weber Grill Seasonings are $3.59- but are on sale buy one get one free. But you can use a coupon on the free item too. So I paid $3.59 for both- used two $1 coupons that tripled- so I had $2.41 overage that went toward my balance.
I was glad to see there was still plenty of product left for everything I was shopping for- and that they limited each shopper to two of each item. It made it fun to shop for deals knowing that there was plenty to go around! Couponers unite- see you at Marsh!
