coupon burnout

July 3rd, 2011 at 07:35 pm

ytd = April 1 2011 - March 31, 2012
Coupon total ytd = 559.80
RX total = 174.64
Discounted Gift Cards = 207.19
Total = 941.63

Not a lot going on right now. I can't get interested in any of the deals, it just seems like too much work. I think I'm burned out. I read about them and think - eh I don't feel like it. Hopefully I'll snap out of it.

I went to Walgreens this morning and used a $6 RR to buy two jars of Hellmann's mayonnaise. Also got a dozen eggs for .99

The fried jicama the other night was the best out of the two methods of cooking. I don't think I baked the chips long enough. I might try it again for longer next time. The fried jicama was really pretty good and I'll probably end up fixing most of the rest of it that way.

I finished reading the library book Wit'chstorm by James Clemens. Sci/Fi - very good.

    You save a certain amount when you use coupons; you save EVERYTHING if you don't shop at all. Big Grin

    too true - but it means the food pantry gets a little less. I figure I'll get back in the mood soon and make it up then Smile

    Do you also factor in the gas it takes to get all these deals?

    I shop while out doing other things, mostly on way to mom's to walk or to meet at Walmart to walk. Almost every store I go to for bargains is within 3 miles of my house. If I go in town, I'll stop at places I don't normally shop, if there is a good deal there, but unless it's a spectacular deal I don't go in town just for one thing. So gas is not included in my deal shopping thinking, since I average about 1 tank a month total for everything I do.
