$24 Profit!

I tell ya, there is just nothing better than getting paid to shop! I went to CVS and Walgreens today and got the items below. This is why I love couponing and love searching for deals, the stores paid me to 'buy' items we need. How cool is that?

To break this down:
4 - Breeze2 Glucometers - currently earning 5 RR's, I had coupons for each one so my cost was $0 and got $20 in store cash to use on future purchases.
2 - Nivea bodywash
3 - Nivea lip care items - when you spend $15 you get $5 ecb's back, I had newspaper coupons for each item as well as a store coupon.
12 - Command Hooks - when you spend $15 you get $5ebs's back, they were $2.50/package, I used coupons from here which made them all free plus a money maker.
1 - Charmin 16 roll toilet paper - $9.99 and produced $2 ecb's.
1 - candy item (needed a filler item).

By using manufacturer coupons and store coupons I made a nice little profit. Couponing is well worth the time you put into it. I will have to take pics of my laundry room and garage - I have a nice stockpile going on!

Yes, I only spent $1 on the dot on the above items! By using manufacturer coupons, store coupons and digital coupons I can really 'stretch a buck'! For those of you that shop at stores that have customer reward cards - sign up (if you haven't already)!! You can load digital coupons on to them from 3 different sites, PG Esaver, Shortcuts and Cellfire. Many times shortcuts and cellfire will have coupons for the same product, so when you buy that 1 item both digital coupons come off. It's an easy way to save!

Free or Inexpensive steak at Target!

Target has a coupon out for $2 off any Sutton and Dodge steak or roast. I just got back from grocery shopping there and found steaks (london broil) from $1.77-$2.31. I used 2 coupons and had no problems! While I don't eat meat, my hubby and kids do so this a great score! Of course, they had lots of varieties of meat in all sizes and price ranges.

You can print as many coupons as you desire.

Contacting companies

I had a great letter in my mailbox this week from Welch's. I had purchased a box of their fruit snacks from Costco, about 5-7 bags either were empty or only had 1 or 2 pieces of fruit in them. So I called the number on the box to let them know. Guess what they did? They sent me 3 coupons for FREE boxes of fruit snacks, 2 coupons for $.50 any product and $.75 off any juice. How nice! It took me no more than 3 minutes to make that phone call. I love when companies appreciate their customers!

Point of this post - contact companies. Not just to complain but to show your likeness for their products as well. I contacted Method (they make baby wash, laundry detergent, soap, etc) to let them know how much I liked their baby wash and asked if they ever send out coupons. Well they did, I received some within a week!

You can find most contact info on the companies website or packaging. Take a look and contact them, you don't know what you will get! :)

Some CVS tips

1. When you first walk into CVS head to the price scanner/coupon machine!! Scan your Extra Care Card and wait for your coupons to spit out the side. Now once they have, scan your card again. Repeat until the screen on the machine says "no coupons available".

2. Be organized. I most always make a list of what I plan on getting, I match up my coupons to that list and paper clip them all together.

3. Take all your coupons into the store with you - you never know what you might find that you will be able to get for very little, free or even make money on!

4. Know how to hand over your coupons! This is the fun part (for me anyways). Always hand over any CVS coupons that are $/$$ of a purchase first (such as $3 off $15 purchase), then hand over your manufacturer coupons. If you do the reverse you will be costing yourself valuable dollars!

I made a quick CVS trip tonight, here is what I did to give you all an idea of how to shop wisely.

My objective was to get lysol wipes since they are on sale and I had coupons for them. Malcom had run into the store quickly before I went in and saw something he needed that was $10.50 and I did not have a coupon for. No problem! I picked up his item (just antiseptic wash for the curious) and then went to get the lysol wipes. Well, CVS had their brand of the exact same wipes but with more in the container for buy 1 get 1 half off which made the total for 2 $4.50. Then I went over the makeup because I heard that had stuff on clearance. I picked up 4 Maybelline lip glosses for $4 a piece. So my total was $31, I paid $5.47 - of course when I mean paid I mean used my extra care bucks so nothing came out my pocket. Here is what I did when I got to the register:

First gave a CVS coupon for $3 off a $15 purchase
Then gave a CVS coupon for $3 off a $15 cosmetic purchase (that the wonderful coupon machine spit out)
Next was a CVS coupon for $3 off any CVS brand item
Last was 4 Maybelline coupons for $4 off any lip item

So, the lip glosses were free with my manufacturer coupons, and since I bought 4 of them I got to use the 2 $3/$15 coupons which gave me $6 off my purchase of the other items. How fabulous! I'm sorry if my post is confusing, I'm not so good at explaining 'couponing' but oh how I'm addicted to it!
