I gotta say, I LOVE getting a really good deal without any coupons to start with! I purposely left my binder at home this week to keep myself from shopping at work, and I ended up getting a decent amount of stuff for very little money! I started with no coupons (any coupons new for the week I printed when I got to work), and I was on a strict budget, so I only planned to swipe my debit card once. Not everything is shown in the picture, because I ate part of it, forgot the drink in my car, and the chips are in a safe spot so I don’t forget them in the morning. I did three transactions, as follows:
Rescue Gum – $5.79, receive $5.79 ECB
Paid $5.79 + tax
CVS Panty Liners – $0.99, receive $0.99 ECB
Jack Links Beef & Cheese – $0.99
Vitamin Water – $1.50, receive $1.50 ECB
Gold Emblem Gummy Bears – $0.99
Hask Argan Oil Treatment – $1.99
Coupons Used: $5.79 ECB from Transaction #1
****When doing my math, my error was in the argan oil being in the wrong spot on the shelf (I didn’t double check the price, and it was lower than I thought), and I didn’t account for my employee discount.
CVS Nail Polish Remover – $0.49 (Clearance – 75% off!!!)
Colgate Optic White 3.5 oz – $2.99
Lays Limon (Lime) chips – $1.49
Coupons Used: $2.49 Instant Coupon for toothpaste, $1.50 ECB from Transaction #2, $0.50 off Frito Lay Instant Coupon
I still have a $0.99 ECB leftover, so this was NOT a bad trip AT ALL! I netted $0.00! Woo hoo!!
Thanks SO MUCH for reading, and stay tuned for more posts coming soon!
