Today, I Was That Crazy Coupon Lady

Don't Judge My Couponing


I bought 12 Campbell's Go Soups! 12! Why might you ask? I had 10 $2 off coupons and they were only $1.50. I just couldn't resist.

It has been a while since I really shopped. I had more planned to get today but Kroger was out. I might go back since the sale doesn't end until Saturday. I have been under the weather and just burned out on just about everything. So this trip was a big deal for me.

The main items I was excited about getting were, of course, the Go Soups but also those Pampers wipes, why? Because they were FREE after coupon! :) My Kroger has a policy where you can only use 5 like coupons in the same transaction. So they let me do two. This is why I was that crazy coupon lady. I also had to use mostly printable coupons because I have been behind on getting my papers. :/ You spend more when you don't do the work.
