I made my last shopping trip of the year on New Year’s Eve.  I had a number of coupons that were due to expire that day and I tried to use as many as possible w/o breaking my budget.

I did three transactions because I was using a lot of coupons. I have found that when I am using a lot of coupons there are less mistakes with my coupons and any mistakes that are made are easier to catch.   I had to make my bi-weekly baby purchases so that always drives up my bottomline. Otherwise, I think I got some pretty good deals.

These are some coupons I found in Meijer during my last shopping trip.  I found a sheet with 4 Meijer brand laundry detergents in the front of the store where the sales circulars are kept.

I also found a $1.50/1 Huggies Pure and Natural (Meijer store) coupon.  This coupon can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon and a sale for some inexpensive diapers.  Thankfully my daughter is in training pants now, so I have no need for those. 

I also found a store coupon for $1/1 Gerber Graduates cereal bar or cereal twists.  Just like the Huggies coupon this coupon can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon (if you can find any).  I signed up with Gerber and they occasionally send me coupons for savings on various products.

The last coupon I found was a manufacturer coupon for $1/5 Kraft Easy Mac.  I found these on a tearpad in front of the Easy Mac.  Meijer has Easy Mac on sale this week for .99. with the coupon they would be just .79 a cup.
