More Shopping Savings

April 16th, 2010 at 01:47 pm

Yesterday, I went to Starbuck's with my travel mug and enjoyed a free cup of coffee.

Purchase 1: Today I went to Walgreens and made 3 separate purchases. First, I bought the Schick Hydro Shave Gel for $3.20. That purchase gave me a register reward of $3. on a future purchase.

Purchase 2: Then, I bought 2 Sudafed products that were on sale for $9.98. Each one was for $4.99 and was on sale. I had $4.00 in manufacturer's coupons so, it brought my purchase down to $5.98. I then received a $5. register reward for that purchase.

Purchase 3: I purchased 2 bottles of CLR for $6.99 each. It was a B!G! free product), and another item for 3.34. I took off $3. from the first purchase and $5. from the second purchase and I ended up paying $3.06. On the total purchases above I would have paid $37.06 but ended up spending $12.24. A savings of $24.82.

I then went to Winn Dixie and purchased 2 TGIF (BIGI free) chicken wings boxes for 3.89 , bananas for .66. Dessert Shells for $1.49 and Strawberries for 1.99. I should have spent $13.92 and spent $5.03. I had $3.00 in coupons from TGIF. I saved $8.89.

My total day should have been $50.98 and I spent $17.27. Saving $33.71 or 66%.

Alot of my buys comes going to different websites and someone posting an item that I wouldn't have considere buying. But the extra coupons made it a buy on my list. We all teach one another.

I have found that it's important to take advantage of any new products that are offered free because you won't see them at the same price again. I have been sorry that I didn't buy more. This week it was the shave gel.

The other day Elisabeth shared how she used her CVS coupons that come out of the machine. I would not have thought about useing those coupons for those items. I learned something from her and that't how it goes around here.

    Wow, you really have this coupon stuff down to a science! Congrats on having it lead to 66% savings, and you are a good example to the rest of us. It's nice to have examples out there to offer some insurance that it can be done...
