Couponing & Good Deals!

Does anyone else feel tempted when they receive emails from stores to "Save 50% on EVERYTHING!  TODAY ONLY!"  LOL... I know they'll have the sale again but I'm always like - OMG I NEED TO BUY SOMETHING.  Marketing.....it works.

I love to save money - who doesn't?  But, certain things I go for are pretty pricey - especially things for the home.  *Ahem* Pottery Barn *Ahem*

I like Home Goods but I get frustrated there sometimes because it's usually so crowded.  Or, I'll find one of something that I need two of.

Mean Ang taught me most of my couponing skills.  Head over to her page to see some of her recent shopping trips.  I plan on food shopping tonight with some coupons I clipped from the paper and some I printed from online.  Living Rich With Coupons is a great site.  You can select your store and they match up this week's sales with coupons.  The key is to clip any coupons for items you may use and SAVE THEM.  Most are good for 4-6 weeks, sometimes more.  Try to save them until they're on sale and then purchase them.  Coupons.com is good, too.



Sometimes it's hard when you're eating healthy but most coupons I use are for almond milk, eggs, nuts, tomato sauce, yogurt, coffee, frozen vegetables, household items & paper products.

Also, sign up for Ebates here and before you shop online, go to ebates first and THEN go to the store you're shopping at.  You'll get cash back every few months, up to 10% sometimes!  My rebate from online Christmas shopping was close to $100!

I'll post my shopping trip tomorrow but for now here's my small deal from CVS last night.  I had earned $2.50 in CVS extra bucks from a prior purchase and then I had a $2 coupon off $10 spent on deodorant.  Luckily, my deodorant was on special.  Buy one, get $2 CVS extra bucks for each one.

(3) Ban deodorant = $12.87
$12.87 - $4.50 coupons = $8.37 and then I earned $6 more extra bucks so technically, $2.37 for 3 deodorants, or $6 off my next transaction at CVS :)
