This is Why I Coupon!
Tonight for dinner we had spaghetti and for Dessert we had pie and ice cream.
Look how much it cost me using coupons?
1 Jar of Prego .50 (Albertson’s promo)
1 box of Ronzoni Wheat Pasta FREE (Albies Double Deal)
I went half and half on the Pasta Sauce! Prego is our favorite, but Ragu can not stand alone and I need to use it up!
Total: $2.19 for the MEAL or .37 a serving
(It made 6 servings)
My old way of shopping would have been like this:
1lb of Hamburger $2.69 (see PYP Costco Price list)
1 Jar Prego $2.00 (average price at Winco)
1 box of Pasta $2.00 (average price at Winco)
Total: $6.69 for the meal or $1.06 per serving
Pie and Ice Cream the couponing way…
Only $0.82 for the whole dessert! It could easily serve 8 making it $.10 a serving
Dessert the old Way:
- Sara Lee Pie $6.39
- Breyer’s Ice Cream $3.00 (In Walmart ad this week)
Total: $9.39 for the whole dessert or $1.17 per serving
Let’s Compare Again:
COUPON Dinner and Dessert: $3.01 or $.38 per person
OLD WAY Dinner and Dessert: $16.08 or $2.01 per person
