Who would have thought?...

That couponing could save me so much money? I went to Target yesterday and since I have gotten my olay coupons for the $4 off in the mail, I had a field day at Target, lol. I split up each order using 4 each of the coupons and had some fillers. I saved 98.86, I got 20 packs of olay soaps, 20 trial size secret deodorant, I added 1 filler per each which is: 1 jar of Target Salsa, 1 jar of Giada Pesto Sauce, 4 Starbucks Frappacino (4 packs) - Got a $5 GC for each 2 packs, so received $10 in GC (Had 2 $2/2 coupons), 1 LockTite Power Grip adhesive (for hubby), bag of Mission Tortilla chips and a cute outfit for my granddaughter. Total Spent OOP was 21.31. I was so GIDDY walking out of the store!

Today I am thinking about going to Rite-Aid since they have a deal on Ritz Bitz crackers. They are BOGO and on they have a coupon for $1/2, so they wind up being 10cents each per bag. Not bad and my daughter loves these.

Then off to Giant to pick up my Garden Delight pasta, since in last Sundays paper there was a coupon for $1 off 1, making them free and believe me, they taste no different that the normal pasta.

3rd stop is going to be Target again, so I can pick up the Shick Hydro 5 razors, I have 2 $3/1 coupons and they are on sale for $7.49 each but if you buy 2 you get a $5 Target GC, so I wont spend anything since I still have the $10 in Target GC's from yesterday's purchase + I gain $5.

After that I will be heading home to put my goods away and straighten up the house, make dinner ... maybe pasta? lol.

If interested and live in PA or NJ and want to get into couponing, I started a new group called PA & NJ Couponers, ask to join and invite your friends too! <-- CLICK HERE TO JOIN US AND SHARE THE WEALTH!
