$288.32 and No Coupons

It happened just yesterday.  We returned from our trip and I decided to shop on a Sunday afternoon.  Usually I shop during the week to avoid the crowds but we had cleaned out the fridge before we left and needed to restock.  So I went to County Market at 2pm on a weekend.

There was a lady in line in front of me who purchased $288.32 in groceries and paid full retail for just about every single item.  I was appalled.  As a bargain shopper, I was shocked to see someone buy a bag of Keebler cookies for $5.99.  Not even on sale!  I had to wonder about this woman.  Was she a wealthy woman and prided herself on how much she spent?  Did she really not care?  Did she need the cookies asap and couldn't wait for the next sale? 

I stepped up to the cashier next.  Loaded with Penny Pinchers, manufacturer's coupons, and my phone rebates.  I tapped every single savings I could.  I ended up with sale items totaling $20 in savings, then added $8 in coupons, $18 in Penny Pinchers, $3 on in my County Market wallet app, and $4 off Ibotta.  Yeah me. 

Some quick math let me know that I had saved over 30% on my small order.  That got me thinking about the woman again.  What if she had used apps and coupons?  She couldn't have saved 30% totaling $86.  I don't know about you, but I think $86 is quite a bit of money.  Especially if you are shopping at least twice per month.  That would pay the tv bill, the phone bill, or buy a new fancy outfit! 

Apps are easy to use.  They take seconds.  Here is more information about how you too can start saving real dollars with apps.
