Traveling and Using Coupons

We were traveling from Portland to Idaho for our Spring Break.

Wow, we really know how to vacation don’t we?

Anyways we stopped in Pendleton for snacks and gas.  I had thought ahead to bring my coupon book, even though I was pretty sure I would not be doing any shopping, well I am glad I did.

We went into Safeway to get our snacks.  Immediately my kids and husband started looking for things that were on sale.  So I was pretty proud of my family.

The first thing I saw when I walked in the door was Stacy’s Pita Chips, the really big bag, on sale for $4.99 and each bag had a $1 MQ attached to it. Being a family favorite I snagged 2 bags.  I also knew I was carrying my B1G1 coupon for Stacy’s  (If you didn’t print it already it’s gone, but sign up here to be ready when they have more)  making each bag only $2.  I didn’t think ahead to look for doubles, but that’s ok.

The kids each got drinks that were on sale, we bought the water that was the best price and the kids also grabbed very overpriced jerky, that had a $1 MQ attached to it.  I was so proud of them for trying I let it slide.

Even on this quick trip to get snacks we saved 40% on our shopping trip.  Best part we were eating so much better than if we had stopped for fast food.
