I went to Macey’s today and did average:
Used $28.50 in-store and manufacturer’s coupons
+ most items I got were on sale 30-50% off even before in-store coupons, so if you add in those savings
= I saved much more than $28.50.

Spent $31.88 for 34 items ($0.93 per item) view a list of all the current Macey’s deals here (all deals I did are on this printable list)

I get emails from people really stressing if they can’t find a deal for something they want. I try to only buy items on sale, but I don’t have an extra freezer in my garage (most people in Utah do; I am a rarity). So I sometimes buy ice cream when it isn’t on sale, because I can’t stock up when it is on sale.  I will be the first to admit I am not the perfect coupon shopper!  See the picture above? I paid the full price of $3 for ice cream today. Hopefully that makes you feel better about your deals or lack thereof.   Try not to sweat the small stuff!  It can make you go cuckoo.

I could have drove 25 miles to Target to price match the Big Lots ad, thereby only paying $1 for my All 2x laundry detergents instead of $1.49 at Macey’s, but it wouldn’t be worth the gas money, time, or stress unless I needed something else at Target, and I don’t. So I didn’t.  But I did get the “Coupon High”!

I didn’t get this deal because I hadn’t printed it, but I noticed at Macey’s:

starkist-tuna chunk light

2.6 oz. pouches of Starkist Chunk Light Tuna were on sale for $1
$/1 Starkist Pouch printable coupon(IE Link) (FF Link)

Final Price= FREE
