Super Stock-Up Challenge

in Tips & Basics


My Aunt, who lives in Canada, comes down to visit us three times a year and while she’s here, we shop like crazy. She stocks up on things that are so much more expensive over the border. Without many truly valuable coupons or rewards programs like CVS, everyday items can cost a fortune.

Aunt LeAnne left after the Indianapolis 500 and she’ll be back in 2 months for Brickyard. Along with her CVS card, she left my mom with the following items:

$20.00 Cash
$18.00 CVS Gift Card
$14.99 ECB

Between now and when my Aunt returns, we’re going to see how far we can stretch that money using great deals and coupons to stock up her up on non-perishable items.

How much do you think $52.99 can buy?

Check out her first purchase below:

KROGER
2 – Country Time Lemonade Mix ($0.99 each)
Used $1.50/2 Coupon

Final OOP: $0.48

*The deal was suppose to print a $1 off your next purchase, but failed, so they gave my mom $1 in cash. She made $0.52 on the deal.

REMAINING
$20.52 Cash
$18.00 CVS Gift Card
$14.99 ECB

Total: $53.51

STOCKPILE
2 – Country Time Lemonade Mix

Total Value: $1.98
