My site is devoted to showing what great deals can be had with using coupons and combining them with your shopper card sales and special deals at the stores you shop at every day. If anyone is interested in learning more about how to get started doing what I do, how to set up an organization system for your coupons, or just any questions in general, please feel free to leave me a message and I will get in contact with you.

Okay, I am back! Took a break from posting, but gonna get back to keeping you all updated - maybe just in a different format... have to think about that one. Got a coupon class coming up on Tuesday night - very excited about that. Hope it goes well. Love to see other people save money like I do. There are enough deals for everybody!

Thanks to my frugalin' buddy, Jennifer, I now know how to use up those red machine coupons at CVS for $1 off an allergy product. You can get the packets of tissues that are 2/$1. I had been trying and trying to find something those would get me free!

Total out of pocket: $3.00 Left store with a $3 off your next order coupon.
At Kroger, this scrubbing bubbles is on sale for $7.99. There was a coupon in Sunday's paper for $5/1. Also, if you buy one right now, there is a $3 off your next order coupon printing at the register. I also had a $1.50 coupon off for the toothbrush and they were on sale for $1. That gave me a profit of 50 cents to go toward my first bottle of scrubbing bubbles. So I paid $2.49 for the toothbrush and the scrubbing bubbles. When I got the $3 off your next order coupon, I turned around and used it and my $5 coupon to get a second bottle and only paid 56 cents, plus received another $3 off your next visit coupon.

Last night, I messed up at CVS and left myself with only $3 in ECBs to start with next week. Today I stopped by to see if they had my items in stock after the truck run today and I got a $2 ECB from the red machine. I was excited that I now had $5 in ECBs again. Tonight, I had an email from CVS that gave me the chance to take a survey for $10 in ECBs! I am now back to $15 in ECBs for next week!

Okay - I took advantage of the buy $25 in P&G products and get free toilet paper. I also had a .25/1 coupon for the TP.
The rolaids were 3.99 a bag and get 3.99 in ECBs and I had a coupon for $4/2 - essentially making them free.
The John Frieda was buy 2 at $5 each and get back $3 in ECBs and I used two $3/1 coupons.
The Glade candles were spend $10 and get $5 in ECBs. They were on sale for 2/$5. I had a 1.50/2 and a 2/2 coupon to use there. (This also qualifies for a SCJohnson $5 rebate by mail).
The crest was $1.99 and I had a 75/1 coupon for it.
The razor was 9.97 and I had a $4 coupon and it also gave you back $5 in ECBs.
The cascade was $3.99 and I had a $1/1 coupon.

The Bounty was 6.97 and I had a $1.00 coupon.
The tampax were $2.97 and I had three $2/1 coupons.
The Bounty, Aussie, crest, tampax and cascade were the items that put me at the $25 to get the free Charmin.
There is also a package of Skittles there that got cut out of the picture. My balance was going in the negative, so they made me get something else.
I had some ECBs to start - $15 - and after all this and doing some rolling, I still left with $3 ECBs.

Retail: $51.04 + tax OOP: $$3.50 Savings: $50.75
This was a pretty good day at CVS although they were out of almost everything I wanted. I did not earn any ECBs on this deal except for two $1 for using my green tags on the separate purchases. I also scored three of the $5/15 Qs to use on my next purchases (which will be done before they expire on Tuesday).
I used two $1 coupons for the Bounty paper towels.
$1/1 coupon for the dawn (made it free + .03 overage)
.25 on the toilet paper (which was already free with a $25 purchase of the other products from P&G)
1 coupon for free tampons
$2/1 for tampons
2 coupons for free always pads
I got the 3 notepads just to be able to use my 2 other Extracare cards so that I could possibly earn the $5/15 coupon.
Watch for new pictures in the next couple of days for my next trips to CVS!!!
