New Project: Couponing

OK just wanted to share. I been working on a little project; couponing.  I'm not trying to take it to the extreme like on that TLC "Extreme Couponing" show. I just wanted to see how much I can save on things I really buy.  Its so much great information and blogs out there to help.  In my situation being a single mom of four, unemployed, living off unemployment I can use all the help I can get.  Anyway I did my coupon matching for this week sales in my local stores, made my list, cut my coupons then off to the store I went. 

So for my first couponing trip I felt good about my results.  I learned that my shopping list needs to be more detailed; such as how many of each item I can buy and what size the items are.  Out of seven coupons I wasn't able to use two due to size miss match.  Then one coupon I couldn't use because the item was sold out.  I did talk to the sales associate, she knows my face because I'm a regular customer, so she told me to come back in the morning for the new shipment.  Anyway I'm not going to list everything I saved on but I will tell you what I was most happy about was my  savings on Always Pads. Yes I'm excited about savings on pads. I have teenage daughters so imagine how much I spend on things like this.  Okay regular price is $9.98, it was on sale 2 for $14.00, with my coupons I got 2 for $5.50.  See why I was so excited..

I just wanted to share my accomplishment of the day.  Anyone else getting great deals please share.

Be Bless & Smile.
