Well, hello everyone!
I bought items that totaled $36.50 pre-tax. I used coupons totaling $19.50 which left me owing $17.00. BUT I got (3) $5.00 gift cards for specific items that I bought; so, in the long run, I only ended up owing $2.00 for all of this stuff! That is pretty amazing to me! This is a 82 percent savings! WOW!
And then I went to CVS. They were also out of several things but here's what I ended up with: I purchased $20.73 cents worth of products BUT with coupons I ended up paying $1.90 AND I have $9.00 in Extra Care Bucks to use on a future trip. So, I really made $7.10! Pretty neat, huh??
I really am enjoying this new way of shopping. It is not only totally scratching that "frugal" itch that I have, it is also quite fun. Thanks for reading!!
