so this weekend, I did pretty good couponing. Not my best, but I stayed under budget, which was good, and I felt good about my purchases. I ended up paying a total of $33.76 for everything seen above. My budget was $40, so I came under, which I always love. I saved a total of 71%. Not my best, but that is with going to 3 stores, Walgreens, CVS & Hannaford. At CVS alone, I saved close to 92%, which was one of my best ever.
Some of the things I got in this ‘transaction’ includes: 4 toilet bowl cleaners, 6 air fresheners, 4 salad dressing, and 4 cake mix. To all the skeptics out there, and people that think it is too time consuming, I really urge you to try couponing. Even if you save $10 a week grocery shopping by using just a small amount of coupons, that is a yearly savings of $500. Think about it.
