As I mentioned a week or so ago, I have discovered the fun and savings to be had with taking couponing seriously (something I never managed to do before). The primary website I am relying on to learn from was shared by my BFF and is called Southern Savers. That site ROCKS and Jenny (its author) is my money-saving heroine, LOL! I don't know where she finds the time, but she does a marvelous job of keeping the rest of us informed as to what, and where, the deals are every day.
I'm having so much fun (particularly with CVS because it's quicker and easier than major grocery runs) and thought I would share my savings highlights for the week. So far this week it's only been CVS, but we'll go to Publix today or tomorrow as well. I don't yet have a ton of coupons stockpiled, but we saved $35 there last week and I'm hoping to do at least that well this week.
This week's CVS run produced $9 in ECB's (this is like CVS cash that you can use to buy anything in the store) and a coupon for $4 off my next $20 or more purchase (Katherine, I'm seeing a ton of those $4 off...hope you are finding some too!) So far I'm sticking only to things we would buy/use normally, so I'm passing up some deals where we could get ECB's (just because I don't really need/want the item even if it's free).
Our total cost before sales and coupons: $60.18
Total paid out of pocket: $32.04 (plus tax)
Saved: $28.14 or 47%!
ECB's and coupons remaining: $9 ECB and $4 off $20.
Now, I'm off to make my list for Publix. Happy weekend and happy shopping!
