Now That's What I'm Talkin' About!

Have you ever tried The Grocery Game? If you haven't, you probably should. They have databases that match the sale ads for the stores with the coupons that come in the paper and rebates that are currently available and tell you each week what is at its lowest price. If you do this long enough, and stock up on things when they are at their lowest price, you shouldn't have to ever pay more than the lowest possible price for any one item. I signed up for the one month free trial ($1 for the first month) just to see if it would be worth it for me. I am amazed at how much I am saving because of this! I renewed four stores after my trial was over. Now that I am on my fifth week, I am really starting to see the savings. They say it takes 12 weeks to see the full savings, but I just had to share something from today's shopping. Today at CVS, I spent $5.79 even though my total before promotions and coupons and such was $68.55! You read it right! I saved $62.76. You are probably wondering what I got for my $5.79. Well, even if you weren't, I am going to tell you:
  • 4 tubes of Crest Multi-Care Whitening toothpaste
  • 4 Oral B toothbrushes
  • 2 Colgate Advance tubes of toothpaste
  • 1 infants advil
  • 2 CoverGirl Tru-Blend foundations
  • 2 boxes of Post Grape Nuts Trail Mix cereal

I got all that for $5.79. Not too shabby! And, not only did I get all that for $5.79, I left the store with coupons for $23.28 off my next shopping trip. To be used just like cash. So when I go next week, the first $23.28 of my order will be free. On the house.

Like I said, that's what I'm talkin' about!

That's amazing! I signed up for the free trial about two months ago, but cancelled it after a week because it seems that it doesn't work on Macs. I didn't like having to go to Shane's computer all the time just to use the website. I am so sad that I couldn't use it on my computer :(

Wow. That a lot of toothpaste.

It is a lot of toothpaste, but just think, I won't have to buy any toothpaste again all year. Plus, our church does a toiletry drive for the Union Gospel Mission homeless men each year. So if I end up seeing other times that I can get toothpaste for free, I'll go ahead and get it and then once a year when they have the toiletry drive, I'll unload what I don't need.
