I went to CVS today to try my hand at some coupon savings. I would also like to note that the grocery game has taken this week off due to holiday so I am winging it. Next week will be better, I think. Anyway I went to CVS and here is what I got:
2 packs of the Swiffer dry - 2 packs for $7
1 Colgate Total White toothpaste 6 oz - 2 for $5
4 Dawn Ultra dish soap 11oz each $.99 ea
1 Bounce lint brush $3.99
here is my coupons I had
$3 off of a $15 purchase
$1.50 off Colgate total white toothpast
2- $1 off 2 Dawn soaps any size
$1 off 2 Swiffer dry products
My bill before coupons was $17.45 without tax
My bill after coupons was $9.95 without tax
TOTAL WITH TAX $10.67
I also got $3 Extra Bucks (which is just like money) for my next purchase and a coupon for $2.50 off CVS brand purchase of $10 or more.
This week CVS has their brands buy one get one free so I could use that coupon this week while their brands are on sale.
I am a stay at home mom who is fed up with spending a large portion of income on grocery bills. It is my job, according to God, to be a good help mate for my husband. I am trying to live up to my job description. I am starting a journey into the grocery coupon world and invite you to come with me. I have never used coupons for grocery shopping and as of January 1st 2008 I am diving in. I will be using http://www.thegrocerygame/ , http://www.moneysavingmom.com and the http://www.couponmom.com/ website to guide me on how to save money. I am going to treat this adventure as a part time job and put in the hours necessary to make it work. I am excited and nervous to get started.
