I had been doing really well with budgeting and saving money until last November. A couple of days after Thanksgiving we went on a 7 day cruise to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary. After that, we went to San Francisco for training seminar. While we were away, a couple of things happened.
1) I realized my need to give up some of my unhealthy habits and start exercising.
2) I fell off of the couponing wagon.
Well friends, I'm back!
On Sunday I walked to the corner store (sshhh... don't tell my oral surgeon) and picked up a paper.
I have clipped coupons, organized them and am now skimming through some sale ads looking for deals.
I'm not one of those crazy coupon ladies that buy a million boxes of something because it's free. Seriously, I'm more of a stock up on items we use every day and try and save as much money as possible. I don't clip coupons for items that I know we will never use, and I don't buy items that I know will take me off track.
Secretly, I think I want to bring out our bill down enough so that I can register for more runs. ... Just a thought.
Anyway, do any of you coupon?
I went to CVS to try my hand at some couponing.
Total spent: 30.46
Total saved: 30.52
See, I saved 50%!
The BEST deal was getting 2 bottles of a multi-vitamin for 3.00.
How did I do it? Well. ...
First, these vitamins were BOGO (Buy one, Get One).
First, purchase the two bottles at 9.99 (originally 9.99 each)
Then, use your CVS printer coupon that saves you 5.00 on a 10.00 vitamin purchase.
THEN, use the (2) 1.00 off coupons you found of the top of the bottle.
Giving you a total discount of 7.00 in coupons.
Pretty fun huh?
Have you gotten any great deals on healthy items lately?
