Shopping With Ruth Ann: Trips from 2012/2011

print
SHOPPING WITH RUTH ANN 
These are some examples of shopping trips I did in 2012 and 2011.
I post these to demonstrate what is possible to do with coupons. 
Some of these items are for donations, but most of these pictures include items I purchased while building a stockpile. This is an example of larger shops before I had a good base stockpile. 
Here at the Moncton Coupons Lady site, we do not promote huge stockpiles or hoarding. 

 

If there is a great freebie and we do not use the items in our house, we get it for donations. There is always a donation box next to my family’s items. We promote Donating, you can check out our “Couponers Giving Back” section over on Facebook!
