Yesterday the participants in the RVA Coupon Pros School Supply Challenge gathered at Kroger to see how much we had bought with our $10 budgets, and to donate the results to the Boys & Girls Club.
This year, I set my goal to collect $100 worth on supplies with my $10. I kept it simple – no rebates, and actually only used one manufacturer’s coupon. So if you think getting great deals is complicated and involves lots of coupons, this shows it doesn’t have to be! In total I made 7 trips, shopping at Office Max, Office Depot, and Kroger.
Here’s the breakdown of what I got with my $9.99:
Total retail value = $104.87
I bet you’d like to know who won – The top three were Erin McGarvey ($567.74), Anjie Henley who collected ($449.25) and Sarah Metzgar ($302.78). Talk about some super couponers! Althogether, sixteen folks participated and collected $3,046.63 worth!
