{Coupon} Crazy

Hi Everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. This is just a quick post to let you know, that besides trying to get sexy, healthy I mean healthy, um no I don’t I mean sexy! ha I am also going coupon crazy! My friend turned me on to this over the weekend. She has been coupon-ing for about a month now. She’s giving me all the tips and tricks to using coupons, were to find them, coupon etiquette. Plus YouTube videos to watch to see how its done. I’m all about saving money. Getting stuff for free is even better. I’m going to show you my very first coupon-ing experience. It got my adrenaline pumping, I think it’s better than sex. 😉 First thing is where to find the coupons. I find the coupons for this transaction in the Sunday paper (1/8/2012) and on the brand websites. I live in CA, so in your state it may vary. Here are the links for the Sunday Inserts.

PLUS I had a $5 cash card. (see receipt where it says “1 cvs coupon 5.00”)

**The total amount was $27.60 -$11.35 <<–I “returned” some stuff, this is for the coupons credit, plus I got the rest in cash back. SO I was able to apply my coupons from my return to this transaction!!!!!

=TOTAL $16.25

PLUS! I also got 2 $10 cash cards, for my next shopping trip!

I paid $0!!!!!

*If its your first time signing up for a CVS card, you can sign up for a $4 off $20 purchse!!!* You can use it for this transaction.

Tips before you shop: Make sure to print out your Stores Coupon Policy, and make sure to read your coupons!!! You can use up to 4 same coupons in a single transaction. Now because I am learning all the coupon lingo, I take a lot of notes!! I like to look back at them if I need a website or something.

Here are some websites I go on.

via The Krazy Coupon Lady———————>>>>As a general rule, if you can get a Sunday or weekend-only subscription for under $2 per week per paper, that’s a pretty good deal. For those whose papers are $2 each or more, for those whose papers do not carry some of the inserts, or (since coupons vary by region) for those whose coupon inserts are thin and sparse, there is still hope! You can buy whole inserts online from services like The Coupon Clippers or Coupons and The Things by Dede<<—this is the one I use! Make sure to pay via paypal or a trusted site!

Good Luck to you and thank you for taking the time to read this!

If this works out for your or you have a better deal, any tips for me, etc…please share them with me!

Happy Money Saving Thursday!

If saving money is wrong, I don’t want to be right!!!!
