So, I don't think I have posted about my coupons yet. Right? Well, a few weeks ago I decided I was going to get serious about coupons. I did a little research online. I watched a YouTube video where someone showed their coupon binder and how it was set up (who knew there were YouTube videos about such things?) I headed out to WalMart and picked up a binder and some baseball card holders and I was one my way!
I am still very new to all of this and just trying to figure it all out! But I really want to be one of those people who go into a store and buy like $100.00 worth of stuff and only spend like $7.41. How cool would that be!
I follow this blog Mommy Snacks and she includes the sales each week for CVS. She has a link on her site for another blog where they host a $5.00 CVS challenge (you go into CVS and see how much you can buy for $5). So, I decided to try it today.
So here is what I bought:Transaction 1: Colgate Total Toothpaste- 2.99 Band Aid (60 count)- 2.99 Playtex Tampons- 3.99 With my coupons and I had $2 ECB from last week I paid $5.55 and I got $7ECB Transaction 2: Revlon Nail Polish- 3.99 Speed Stick Pro Deodorant- 3.99 With my coupons and $5 ECB from transaction 1 I paid $1.98 and I got $6.99 ECB Transaction 3: 2 Olay Body Wash- 2/$12 2 Post Trail Mix Crunch cereal- BOGO First Aid Kit- .99 St Ive Apricot Scrub- 1.49 With my coupons and $8.99 ECB from transaction 2 I paid $1.78 and I got $5 ECB
In the end I spent $9.31 and I have 5 ECB left to spend! I had a fun time at CVS! I didn't think it was too bad for my first time;-)
Any couponers out there who would like to give a newbie advice I would love to hear it!
