About thecoupon411

I am a proud Navy wife of nearly 8 years, and a proud parent to 3 goofball kids. By being an overall cheapskate, and learning to effectively stretch my nickels into quarters with coupons, I have been able to cut our grocery budget waaaaay back and have learned to provide for my family of 5 (plus the dog and cat) on a shoe string budget! Couponing is fairly simple. It takes a little time set aside each week to clip and match-up with sales ads, but the rewards can be amazing.

Great stock-up price on pasta at Target!


Barilla brand Whole Grain pastas (Thin Spaghetti, Penne, and Rotini) are $1.39  at Target
Use the $1/2 or $.55/1 Barilla Whole Grain Pasta Coupon (depending on which coupon came in your region) from today’s (9.18.11) Smart Source= as low as $0.84 a box!
