I went to the grocery store today and was able to 20 boxes of pasta and 2 packets of taco seasoning for $0.00. That's right, zero, nada, zilch! The items would be have cost around $40.44 but with store discounts and my beloved coupons, I got it all for free.
If you are wondering if I've gone carb crazy or we eat pasta everyday, no, but the expiration dates on the pasta isn't until 2013 and 2014 so we just won't have to buy any pasta for a long time. Even more surprising is that I was able to get healthy pasta, so it wasn't just junk either.
I must admit, I was giddy leaving the store and on a coupon high. I love being able to save money like that.
