Extreme Couponing


It was my first major coupon expedition. I had been training for months. I had scoured bargain shopping websites and coupon databases. I took full advantage of my three computers when it came time to print coupons.


I don't know if my total balance would land me a spot on TV. But I had a huge mound of stuff in my cart, and there was a fair amount of sweat tripping down my neck, so... I think I'd qualify.
Two trips. 
Four separate transactions. 
Coupons used: 135
Items purchased: 220
Total value of coupons: $108.71
Total bonus coupons (Fry's made every coupon worth $1): $47.86
Spent: $199.14
Total sale/coupon savings: $463.05

And...here's what I bought. We have toilet paper coming out our ears. Mostly stuff I buy anyway, plus a few new things I thought it would be fun to try, since they were really cheap, or free.
