At the beginning of the summer I had a class in my home about couponing. How to do it, where to go, how to stack. All that good stuff. So we all purchased four papers, which means Wednesday-Sunday we get four papers a day.......that's a lot of papers. 20 a week! But I made my coupon binder and labeled everything with dates, and we are just starting to get out and do it. I consulted with couponersunited and went for it. I was so excited today! I went to CVS. We had $8 in care bucks, which means I could use that as payment! Whoohoo!
So I packed my coupons, had them in order, went to the store in the storm and stocked up. Cept I thought my care bucks were on the card....no turns out you have to have a receipt with the care bucks amount on there. Which you can get at the machine in the front of the store when you walk in. So I got my 16 items and went up to pay. Thinking I was only going to pay $6. But I did not, but I can still use them next time, for maybe even a better purchase!
So here is the break down.
2 xtra detergents...$1.49 each (no coupon, just cvs card)
4 Palmolive soap....$.99 each (4/.25 off coupons used)
Hellman's mayo.....2/$6 (2/$1 off coupons used)
4 mitchum deodorants.....$1.99 each (4/$1 off coupons used)
4 Bayer 20 ct. aspirin.....$3 each (4/$3 off coupons used)
Grand total $14.80
Amount saved $47.46
All Bayer aspirin FREE!!!
So for my first trip that included a screw up I think I did pretty good!
Anyone else have the extreme couponing bug??
