Hi everyone! Happy New Year. So one of my new years resolutions is to get out of credit card debit this year and start saving more money.
I started couponing last year and now I am going to become more serious about it. I hope to use this blog as an opportunity to share deals with you and also keep track of my savings/earnings.
Today was an awesome day for me. That's why I'm calling it the Super Sunday Savings Spree.
It started out at Walgreens.
I had 2 items that I needed to return which gave me about $20 back in cash. I also had $10 in my wallet. So $30 total which I was going to use for both Walgreens and CVS. This is how I did.
4 Fructis items @ $2.99 [-$2.00 ESQ and $1.00 MQ = -$0.04]
Electrasol Geltabs @3.49 [-$2.50 MQ and $1.50 ESR = -$0.51 after rebate]
1 Sunday paper
My total OOP was $4.02! Not bad. Plus I will get back $1.50!
At CVS I did 3 transactions.
4 Colgate toothpastes @ 2/$5.00 [-$1.50 PQ/Get $4.00 in ECBs]
1 Pamolive Dish Soap @ $0.97 [-$0.25 MQ]
1 Cottonelle 20 pack @ $12.97 [-$1.00 MQ/Get $4.00 in ECBs]
1 Ziploc Baggie Twic pack @$5.99 [-$1.00 MQ/Get $2.00 in ECBs]
I also used a $5.00 off $25.00 that came in my email for this weekend only. $2.50 in ECBS for fall spending and $5.00 in ECBs that I had from a previous purchase.
My total was $10.62 and I got back $10.00 in ECBS!
2 Infant's Motrin @ 2/$11.00 [-$2.50 MQ]
1 package of Bandaids @ $3.00
1 Tylenol Cold @ $6.00 [-$1.00 MQ]
1 Freedom Lite Monitor @ $9.99 [-$9.99 MQ]
I also used a $5/$25.00 coupon, $2.00 off pain reliever CVS coupon, and my $10.00 in ECBs from above.
My total ended up $0.27 negative so I threw in a package of tic tacs @ $0.99 and my total came to $0.73. I got $10 in ECBS for the motrin/band aids/tylenol.
3 packs of pepsi @ 3/$10.00 [-$1.00 MQ]
1 Johnson & Johnson's baby wash @ $2.99 [-$1.00 MQ]
I used my $10 ECB from transaction #2 and spent $1.24 OOP.
So in total I only spent a little over $16.00 OOP at Walgreens and CVS!
Now, if you have a Jewel near you -- they have a great deal going on. Buy $30 worth of participating merchandise and receive $15.00 on your next order.
I did 3 transactions at Jewel today.
8 Roll pack of Bounty $10.00 (-$0.25)
Trix @ $2.00 (-$1.00)
2 - Yoplait Kids @ $2.50/each (-$1.50/each)
2- Cheerios @ $2.00/each (-$1.00)
2 - Betty Crocker Brownie Mix @ $1.67 (-$1.00)
2- Patene Products @ $3.33/each (-$3.00)
My total OOP: $23.39 and I received $15.00 back
3 packages of Pampers @ $10.00 (-$4.00 in coupons)
I used my $15.00 from transaction #1 to pay for the diapers and spent $13.48 out of pocket. Which is not bad for 3 packages of size 5 pampers! I also received back the $15.00 in coupons and an extra $5.00 good on your next baby product purchase.
2 Packages of prepackaged salad @ 2/$5.00 (they were also running a special on these that if you buy 2 you get up to 2 lbs of Bananas free so I got 2 lbs exactly!)
1 package of baby carrots @ 1.50
1 Green Peper @ $0.77
1 cucumber @ $0.79
1 Johnson's Baby Vapor Bath (to use the $5.00 coupon good on next baby purchase) @ $5.49 (-$1.00 MQ)
1 Package of Jewel Croutons @ $1.00
I used the $5.00 baby coupon and a $5.00 jewel coupon and paid $4.03 OOP. I have $10.00 left to roll sometime this week when they get the Downy back in stock! I am going to be taking advantage of this offer as much as possible. It is good until 1/18!!
The great news too is I can use the products from Jewel transaction #1 and #2 to fufill my $50 requirement to get the $120 worth of Proctor and Gamble coupons. I already filled out my form and will be sending that in tomorrow morning!
Not a bad shopping day! Hope you all had a great Super Sunday!
