On some of them, note, some of them, you might wanna dig to the back and see if you could find one with it, was a peelie for a get a free bag of m&ms up to $2.99 when you purchase any TWO packages of kellogs rice krispies and or cocoa krispies cereals 12oz or larger, exp 6/20/11. You might want to also look for that $1.00 off 2 cereals to make them each $2.00. Not a bad deal if you ask me!

Total after coupons - $4.22

Target trip $0.05 out of pocket 5/10

Today was such an amazing day at Target for me. Lots of price cuts, good things on clearance and no long lines. I bought alot of stuff as you can see in the picture above. Everything was a total of $30.86 without my coupons. I also had recieved a $5.00 giftcard from last weeks promotion on the John Frieda haircolor and decided to wait for the perfect time to use it. Here's what I got.

2 Rice Krispies - 2/$5.00
1 bag of M&Ms - FREE
1 travel size Jergens Glow lotion- $1.99
4 Nivea Men bodywashes - $2.43 *that was their price cut from $3.04* = $9.72
4 travel size Degree deodrant - $.99 each = $3.96
1 Revlon Tweezer - $2.24
4 Carefree liners - $0.99 each *used the $0.01 target coupon* = $0.04
1 clipboard found in the $1.00 section - $1.00

Total without coupons or giftcard $30.86 *Note that I also used my reusable bag so the $0.05 was reduced before the total*
Total with coupons - $5.05
Total with giftcard - $0.05
Total out of my pocket was the $0.05 cents. =)

Now I know you're probably wondering where I got my coupons from. Well lets see if I can remember!
For the Jergens coupons I had printed that out from their website about a week ago for $1.50 off any jergen product. Not sure if its still up but you can check that out. The nivea coupon had came in the RedPlum insert 4/10 for $3.00 off. The degree coupons aswell, now those don't have restrictions so make sure you point that out to your cashier before they start rejecting them. It's a hassle but hey, when a coupon has no restrictions it means ANY product of that name brand. Those coupons were for $1.00 off. For the tweezer coupon I cannot remember what insert that was but I do know it was from a Smartsource. Its actually a target manufacture for $2.00 off any Revlon beauty tool. For the carefree coupons I'm sure we all remember when we heard about them being $0.01 cents at Target with the coupon. Remember? Because I do but not the insert it was in lol. For the rice crispies there was a coupon for $1.00/2 in the 4/10 RedPlum insert. Note that on my cereal boxes came a peelie that stated a free bag of M&Ms when 2 boxes of Rice Krispies were purchased. And that's it. The clipboard didn't have a coupon, I just think it would be handy for me when I go coupon shopping. ; )

Trading Coupons.!

I have just recently figured that buying coupons on ebay was much more cheaper than buying newspapers every Sunday. You can save up to 50% by just doing that. I have tried ways to get a hold of coupons for free. Until I found a cool page on Facebook called, Trading Coupons. I added her as a friend and realized this is a way to get coupons for free. What it is, is a community of couponers who ofcourse communicate with each other about coupons they need or coupons they wont be needing. You comment on their post for example, "Yeah I have that coupon, I have about 10 of them," then they reply and so forth. Only catch is sometimes they'll ask for coupons their looking for from you to trade, Trading Coupons! =) Its really convinent when times are hard for some of us. I've tried it once so far but couldn't find any coupons I was in need of so I sent her the coupon without a trade. You may come across some of those nice people who won't need a trade but its rare ofcourse. If you are interested go ahead and add them HERE. Goodluck and remember, free coupons are always a good thing!

Everytime I walk into CVS the first thing I do is scan my savings card at the coupon machine for extra coupons. This amazing coupon came out for $1.00 off any liner, pad or tampon. Saving me a carefree coupon, with pride I put the carefree coupon away and used this instead! It was free anyways, why not! So if you stop by CVS today scan your cvs card and see if you can score some free carefree liners!

My CVS trip for 5/8

Here is my wonderful trip to CVS this morning. Went as planned, just a couple cents off from my calculations last night but overall pretty good! NOTE: I had also used the extra bucks from last week from the toothpaste. The $5.54 extra bucks will help my total go lower. AND I also recived an email a few days ago from cvs.com for a $4.00 off a $20.00 transaction, I am also using that aswell.

(4) Duncan Hines Brownie mix- $0.83 each = $3.32
(2) 100 count ziploc sandwhich bags- 2/$6.00 *plus $4.00 EB when you buy $12 worth of product*
(1) Glade Sense and spray - $7.00 *plus 4.00 EB when you buy $12 worth of product*
(2) carefree liners - $0.99 each = $1.98
(2) stride gum - 3/$3.00 = $2.00

Total before coupons - $20.30
Total after coupons including last weeks extra bucks and the $4.00 off $20.00 = $1.78
And I recieved $4.00 back in rewards for my next trip.

In conclusion, I saved $18.52 and only spent $1.78 for 11 items making each item only $0.16 cents each. Not bad! And I made $4.00 for my next trip next week! It pays off to really plan out your trips when you want to use your extrabucks.
