On Saturday my mom called me to tell me that Hy-Vee was having a deal where you could buy a freezer for $199 and get $200 worth of free food coupons with that purchase. At first I was going back and forth "We could use a freezer but do we need one right now?" Then I snapped out of it and realized how much we could save by having an additional freezer. We decided to go check out the sale and see just how good of a deal it was.
And what a deal it was! After buying the freezer I was handed a packet which not only had a $15 Hy-Vee gift card but also $200+ coupons for free food. We had so much fun going around the store and picking up items such as Raisin Bran, turkey lunch meat, frozen vegetables, coffee creamer, juice, and so much more...all for free! We still have a huge pile of coupons to use and this will make our next month's food expense go way down. I can't believe that more people weren't taking advantage of this deal as there was still quite a few freezers left. It is amazing to be able to get a freezer and over $200 worth of food for just $199. All the coupons were for things that we would eat so none of it will go to waste.
What's even better is that with all the money I have been saving with our reduced food budget and more careful shopping I was able to buy the freezer without touching our money in savings. I call that a win-win situation!
