We told you about a woman who recycled her way to a nearly free wedding, and this grocery-inspired story is further proof that being on a tight budget doesn't mean you can't have the celebration you've always dreamed of -- it just forces you to get creative!
Newlyweds Maggie, 60, and Mike Davies, 63 pent 18 months collecting 40,000 loyalty points at the British supermarket chain Sainsbury's and used them to pay for the food at their wedding.
The Worcestershire couple -- who are both Sainsbury's employees -- estimates they spent about $8,000 in order to collect the loyalty points; they bought "everything," including Mrs. Davies' honeymoon wardrobe, at the grocery store.
The couple cashed in their loyalty points (worth roughly $320) and built a scrumptious buffet of sandwiches, quiches, sausage rolls and desserts large enough to feed 140 wedding guests.
"Our big day could not have been more perfect -- it was more than I could ever have imagined," Mrs. Davies told the Daily Mail. "It would have been really tight without the points."
Who knew toothpaste and frozen perogies had such a valuable ROI?!
