Couponing

I have recently gotten into couponing extreme! I spent quite some time learning how to get organized and how to properly use coupons. I think this has been where my problem was in the past. I had no organization at all with my coupons, so I would quit using them after a short time. Well, now I am hooked! It is exciting to see the savings and to see my stash building up. I thought I would show today my first CVS shopping trip couponing style:)

I went through their ad and circled the best deals. I then took out all the coupons I had for those deals. I headed to the local CVS and had a great time! I thought it went well for my first time. I hope to get better at this, so that I can keep my family stocked and be able to help others by donating.

Today, I stocked up on toothpaste! They had Colgate toothpaste for buy one/get one and I had three 75 cent coupons. Also, I was able to get quite a bit of gum. They had it for $1.00 (regularly $1.49) and I had coupons for buy one/ get one free. I was also able to get a free hair styling product!! I spent $29.79 (with tax) and ended up saving $34.14 between store sales and coupons. All in all I thought this was a good trip.

I would love to hear how everyone else saves on grocery and household items. Have a wonderful Friday!

Good job, Kim! Be sure to try double couponing at the grocery stores too.

Since I know you have visited my blog you know I love to coupon. One thing I can say is always try and fit a combo when there is a $5 off $25 type coupon. That is when I do my best. I agree with you couponing can be very exciting.
