Getting the hang of things

Sunday I went out and bought 2 more coupons, and then got another insert from the BF-in-laws. It should have dawned on me to start buying 3 papers – because when B1G1 offers come around, I use 2 coupons on one transaction and then always have 1 left over. I am also figuring out that I cannot just take my coupons in with me – I need to sit down and make a list of what I am going to purchase, and make a list. If not, I get so flustered that I forget half the things I went in for!

I’m also starting to get the hang of WordPress – apologizes if your comment doesn’t show up right away, I need to figure out a way so I don’t have to approve every comment! It also caught a couple legit comments as spam.

Anyways, the sales weren’t too great this week, but I did stop by Walgreens.

1 bottle Dove shampoo and 1 bottle Dove conditioner @ $4.99 each – $9.98

3 Sharpies @ .99cents each – $2.97

Total = $12.95

Dove was B1G1 – $7.96

Minus 2 $2 MFG coupon for Dove – $3.96 (making the Dove .50 cents a bottle!)

Minus Walgreens Coupon for Sharpies (making them .39 cents each) = $2.16

Total OOP was $2.16

Total savings – $10.79

———-

Total spent of out pocket so far: $17.37

Total savings so far: $56.07

    I read somewhere that you’re supposed to buy 2 newspapers for each person in your house. I can’t justify 6 papers (!) so I normally just end up buying 3. It seems like a good number, right?

    Great deal on the Dove! I don’t think we got those coupons. 😦
