I had a wonderful day this past Wednesday shopping with my Mother and Father in Love. We went to PUBLIX…of course and bought (3) buggy’s (southern terminology for shopping cart) full of groceries.
This was their first time shopping with me and we were doing three huge transactions. So, there we are… in the store, all of our shopping carts in a neat row, as not to block traffic, with our coupons in hand.
By the end of out trip each shopping cart was overflowing with FREE and inexpensive goodies. Passersby were shocked and amazed.
I was asked several times did I teach workshops and of course I had my cutesy info cards that I freely handed out along with a coupon for something FREE or inexpensive. Several of my new friends left with cheap charcoal, pork or pasta and an invitation to visit my FREE money saving website.
We arrived at the store in one truck but left in two. We just had that much stuff that it all couldn’t fit in one truck.
I could see how nervous my MIL was beginning to look as the carts began to overflow. She really began to sweat as she saw the shopping total climb higher and higher. I will say that my mother and father in law had some of the biggest smiles I’ve ever seen when we left the store.
Her total before coupons was about $165 and after…a little over $26. My total was about the same before taxes and $35 after.
I didn’t see my father in loves receipt but I know that he saved a ton as well. My father in love had shopped for a friend in their town and she couldn’t believe that we got everything on her list plus many extra items. She thought the $40 wouldn’t cover everything, but it covered everything she wanted plus some other items that were dirt cheap with coupons.
