Stocking Up With Savvy Coupon Lady: Albertsons Show & Tell

by Kimberly on January 21, 2012

Albertsons Shopping Trip Savings

I know many of you have probably wondered about meat and seafood right?  You rarely see my purchasing it.  I will by buying a lot more of it.  I’m eating LOTS of protein these days.  I’m probably eating between 3-4 chicken Breasts each day..that and lots of salad!  So I needed to buy 10lbs today to hold me over for a little while.   Below is a List of everything I bought, the coupons I used and how much I spent and saved.  Overall, I’m happy with the savings.  If I can buy Meat, Shrimp and a good amount of produce and still save 50% off my bill I’m thrilled!   I could give you all ‘fake’ shopping trips and make the total percentage saved look really good, but I’m a real person with a real family of 6.  I want to show you all the reality of how much you can save using coupons and looking for great bargains on items that there just aren’t coupons for.  I’m interested to hear what you all think.
