Trying out the coupon queen idea

I've tried the Walgreens ad and had some success so I thought today would be a good day to try the grocery store. think for a first attempt it went well. I had some good coaching and I added some things to my stockpile. Here's a list to give you some ideas:
1 box of Puffs Plus at $1.00 used a .25 coupon paid 50 cents
1 bag of Chex mix at $1.48 used a .50 coupon, paid 48 cents
2 boxes of Eggo waffles at $1.09 used $1 off 2 boxes coupon, paid 18 cents
1 roll of Farmland breakfast sausage at $1.79 used $1 coupon, paid 79 cents
2 Farmland smoked sausage (beef ) at $2.99 used 2 coupons for $1, paid 99 cents each
1 can Old El Paso refried beans at $1.55
1 box of Old El Paso taco shells at $2.39
1 envelope of Old El Paso taco seasoning at $1.19
used $1 off any two Old El Paso products and a coupon for buy any two Old El Paso products get a free taco seasoning, paid $1.94 for all.

One one ticket the shelf price was $44.90, I paid $16.20 69% off , the other ticket had a shelf price of $ 38.42, I paid $21.01, 52% off. I also have $11.30 in rebates to mail in to scrubbing bubbles. I paid $37.21 ($25.91 after rebates) for $83.32 in groceries. Today I saved $57.41. Not too bad as I'm getting started.
