Question #1: Can You Really Save Any Money With Coupons? (Part 2)

Of course not everything is free when you coupon, but below is a picture of the items I got in July for between one cent and $1.00.  These items have an individual retail cost anywhere from $1.06 to $8.99, with a combined retail value of $1,006!  I paid $185 for it all, which is 81% off (or 86% when factoring in the additional $323 of free items from yesterday's post). 

My collection of stuff I got for $1 or less in July!
You may assume I blew my grocery budget as a result of these purchases.  Actually, I came in under budget this month, thanks to the couponing I did in June.  (Please note that unlike on the Extreme Couponing show, I did not get all of these items in one shopping trip, nor did I empty any shelves.  This collection represents shopping trips throughout the month at various stores).

To sum it up, I spent $185 and stockpiled $1,329 worth of free and cheap items in July.  So are you ready to start some serious couponing?

My Cheap Deal of the Day:  Two Head & Shoulders Shampoo (14oz) at Walgreens for .01 cents total!  If you look closely enough in the picture you'll see 8 of them in there!
