Coupons

Here is something else that I have been busy doing!  Finding great deals!  A few weeks back Target had printable clothes coupons.  By shopping in the clearance section I found some GREAT deals.
See this men’s shirt?

That’s right, it was marked down to $3.74.  Good deal right?  But wait, I had a $3.00 coupon.  $0.74!  Woot woot!  And it didn’t stop there!

Denim for me . . .

Marked down to $6.24.  Another $3.00 coupon and my pants were only $3.24!

The best deal (if you don’t consider the Men’s shirt) was this pair of child’s Osh Gosh adjustable tap jeans!  I usually pay full price for these.

Marked down 50% to $6.48.  Then with my $2.00 coupon only $4.48! 

I love me some deals!  And this is what I got today!  Here ise my loot from my grocery shop today!  I know, I know.  People usually take it all out of the bags, but there is yogurt, eggs, cheese, and I had to hurry and put it in the fridge.  Let’s just say that there is a lot here!  Like free toothbrushes, coloring book, two jars of juice, apples, iced lemonade, and two packs of hot dog buns.  That's right.  FREE!

How have I been getting these great deals?  Well, first off I Grocery Game.  And I truly try to make a game out of it.  If I hit a 50% savings, then I win!  This isn’t always easy because I buy higher priced eggs and milk (because I can tell the difference ) and those things are NEVER on sale.  Even with those I always get at least a 30% savings.   

Well even though I was under my 50%, I still consider this a win.  I was at 46%!  And this was including some high ticket items!  Sweet!  My receipt was almost three feet long.  I had to smile when I saw the looong coupon section printing.  And I always find it funny when I hand over my stack of coupons and the people turn and look at me.  But I don’t mind because here is my run down:

MFG CPN Savings$43.60
BONUS CPN Savings$6.35
Str CPN & KRO PLUS SAVINGS$58.90
Total Coupons$108.85
Total Savings (46 pct.)
$108.85

My out of pocket was $129.50. 
Here are some websites I use so you can get some great deals too!
