Sorry I’ve been slacking so much in my posting here. Life has been crazy!!!
I’ve been doing very small couponing trips lately. My husband doesn’t want me to spend a ton of money just to save in the long run so I’m trying to be better about that. We just can’t afford it every paycheck:P So, I know buy only what we need and use coupons for them.
First off, I wanted to point you to a great giveaway contest that the Fab FruGALS are having on their website:
I just entered. I never win, but we’ll see this time around. lol
Second, here are a couple shopping trips I’ve made in the last few weeks (I can’t believe that August is almost over!! I feel like it just started!):
On Aug. 4th I went to walmart and spent $7.76 on all this stuff here. The total before coupons was about $12 I think.
Then, off we went to target where I could stack my coupons for a greater deal! I bought more so I spent more, but save a TON!! I spent about $25 I think. I can’t remember, but I save more than $25. I had a B1G1 coupon for the scrubbing bubbles and also a $1 off 2 target coupon so I only paid $7 for 4 products! I thought that was awesome:) I need to go back and get more, but I’m hoping for a sale before the coupons expire.
At Albies a few days later I bought a bunch of fruit and cereal for only about $14! The fruit was $12 but I had a WIC check for $6 so I paid $6 for the fruit and the cereal was on sale and I had coupons so I paid about $8 for that. I only bought the cereal because we were all out of it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have. We were also out of the fruit snacks so I bought one of those.
I’ve been getting a lot of my free samples in the mail lately:) It’s fun to check the mail and get a free sample in it!
And last week I got 2 rebate checks!! Woohoo! I got another this week too for buying the Staples paper:)
I’ve also bought some toddler food for Tinian at $2 each and used a $1 off 2 coupon. Yogurt is a big neccesity in our house now. Tini loves it so I bought some of that this week and also milk and ice cream. I keep trying to get the $.75 off milk coupon, but it goes so fast that when I find out about it it’s already gone:P I don’t get milk from WIC anymore for the older boys, just for Tini so it’s getting expensive to buy as much milk as we use:P
I bought some chips, cheese and sandwich meat this week too for pretty cheap (Unfortunately I only had a coupon for the cheese:P). School starts next week so I need to stock up on stuff for school lunches. I hope Albies has more chip sales coming up!
Well, the baby is awake so I better take a break and go get him. Hope your couponing is going well!:)
