Saved $12.96 at Walmart.
It's so disappointing. I spent $52 and saved almost $13. I read blogs and see people saving $100 and paying $25. What am I doing wrong? Well my daughter's boyfriend is stationed at Keesler Air Force base and he said he would get me a visitor pass and I could try my skills at the store on base. They have lower prices and I can use coupons plus no sales tax! But they have some sort of fee for shopping there, I think like 5% fee added on, but still less than sales tax. I think the biggest trick to saving money grocery shopping is just finding a store that has double coupons, then only buy the fantastic buys that week and buying those things in bulk. Unfortunately I don't seem to find and amazing deals on things we need and I really don't have the extra $$$ to buy things just for the sake of saving money on them. I know I talk about driving to Gulfport and testing my theory out at Food Giant on a weekly basis, but it's hard to find the time to go all the way out there. Not to mention the possible wasted gas if it doesn't pay off. I have been hesitant but curious now for 2 months. I should just do it and get it over with haha.
