Cheap food anyone?

So I went to the grocery store yesterday. I didn't buy that much stuff, but then again I didn't pay much either. I bought 14 cans of Progresso soup (for our food storage), 6 cake mixes, and 2 pounds of butter. And the grand total? $.63 Yep, you're reading that right, 63 cents. Don't believe me? Here's the receipts:

You'll probably have to click on them to read them, but I did two transactions. One was 30 cents and the other was 34. And you know what's even better? At the end I was left with a $10 coupon to use towards my next purchase. I love it when grocery stores pay me to take food off their hands.

Awesome! I've never even been close to saving this much money. I really need to pay closer attention to coupons and sale items.

I remember the receipt I got back one time when they OWED ME .13!!! I couldn't believe it. I didn't get it, mind you, bc the coupons "didn't have cash value" but that was a glorious day indeed. I think I saw a coupon here once... or maybe it was a lotto ticket. :)

Makes me excited to see what our grocery store deals are this week (I do my list Wed nights). I love paying so little and getting so much.
