Not to shabby, in my opinion. $200+ shopping trip, I paid around $20 :)

Take a look at my spreadsheet here.

looks great but Guess im to lazy to do the spread sheet thing.
I just check out the ads match up the qs and if i see something on clearance or on managers specials i pull the qs and check out. I average 50% to 90% usually depending on the store types. So thats ok for me.

This is the military commissary forum. It's a grocery store on a military base that is exclusive to military ID card holders only. This particular section of the board is found as a sub section under 'military commissary'.

Excellent trip! I never did find those advil coupons, I tried searching clipping sites but came up with nada, and the insert was out before I was into couponing. I don't do the spreadsheet thing either because I'm too lazy but I think if I did, I'd save more! Good job.

Your spreadsheet is awesome you have inspired me to do one like it. The more organized I am the more money I can save. I am working toward cutting my grocery bill in half. You did good with the 92% savings.

I absolutely love the spreadsheet. So does my DH and our DD. They are even starting to help me out and make sure everything is on our spreadsheet by aisle in the commissary.

Great trip, snarg!

Love the spread sheet. My only question is how do you change it if they are out of something on it once your at the store? I went yesterday and they were out of 3 or 4 of the overage items which brought my OOP up. I am not complaining though when I saved $270!

Great job! I hope to have a 90%+ savings on a large trip soon!

Nice :) I'm going to start organizing my by isle as well. I drive my wife crazy with my, 'bouncing all over the commissary', routine.

I print a bunch of blank lines at the bottom so I can fill them in as I shop. I also have a pen and calculator with me, in case I have to re-calculate something. If you spot someone stopped in the middle of the isle, coupon book spread out on the shopping cart, pen in one hand and calculator in the other, that is probably me :)

Seriously though, I don't clog the isle if I can help it. Also, if you have a smart phone, there are apps now that allow you to run spreadsheets on them. I have a dumb phone though so, no app for me :(

Thank you :) Yes, I made it myself. I'm constantly tweaking it and I try and keep the link in my sig up to date. If you have any ideas or suggestions on it please, let me know. I'm always open to new ideas.

The spreadsheet looks great! I will have to take advantage of it =) I'm curious, do you do all your shopping solely on base or do you go off base to other markets?

Thanks so much for the spreadsheet! It was so much easier to walk down the aisles, grab the items, and have everything calculated I only made two changes (got 4 more of a product because they had Qs on them that gave me overage and changed brands of a condiment because the military coupon made them a better price & deal size-wise!! You are awesome! I can't wait to plan my next trip!!!
