I’ve decided to keep a detailed record of all my shopping and coupon usage this year. When it comes to food, I tend to buy a lot of store brand items so I don’t get to use many coupons for that. I also don’t buy too much packaged/prepared food. DH has the problem of being brand loyal to certain toiletry items. That limits me incredibly. I’ve tried to use other products but he absolutely won’t use them. We end up with two toothpastes, two lotions, two shampoos, etc. I use the cheap or free stuff; he uses whatever product he is attached to.

I did not include the Walgreen’s coupons. Walgreen’s has a tendency to be overpriced. I’ll only buy something there if there is a store coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon and if the resulting price is lower than elsewhere. I do go in for the Free-After-Rebate offers. Those are not included in the above total.

    It would be cool to tally up the final prices, also. I bet it will be amazing.

    If he's brand loyal you can always scour the manufacturers websites for coupons and free samples for those items. The one great thing about the BIG brands is that they run promos a few times a year where you buy 5 of their products and you get, oh, say a $10 catalina. If you can find coupon brokers you can buy a bunch of the coupons and combine those with the promos for a almost never ending supply of the product!
