CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart Finally

As many of you know my girls play travel softball, my youngest plays league also, and my oldest also plays high school basketball, which they stay very busy with in June. So I have felt very overwhelmed lately.
Missing the good deals I have been posting about, my coupon binder was a mess, and since I am doing this to try and save money, well I wasn't. So Monday night I stayed up late organizing my coupons and my lists.

It had to be done. Coupons were expiring and I was getting fast food way to often. So I went shopping last night.

Stop #1 CVS:

I think I did very well. I had $5 ECB to spend and coupons for everything so my total OOP was $9.96 and I earned $8 ECB for later.

Stop #2 Walgreens:

I did pretty well here too. My Register Rewards would not work for my next purchase and they would not accept one coupon but still my total OOP was $24.09 with $11 in RR to spend later.

I saved $49.46 in coupons, and sales. I think this is awesome. I would also like to mention the manager came over to the register last night when the RR would not work and commented that since I was saving so much anyway, I had no right to complain. Hello? Just because I use coupons you do not have to be rude to me.

And finally..... Walmart:

I am not a regular Walmart shopper, I prefer Kroger but I had not been in awhile and we all know there are great deals to be had if you look.

So....... what do you think I spent? Before coupons.... $94.79 and after coupons..... $57.21.

I was very excited, I had to buy dog food so that alone was $12.28, so all and all I save well over $110 last night. I love coupons.

Tightwad Tuesday

This weeks subject..... Yard Sales
I had a rather successful yard sale a couple off weeks ago so I wanted to share some tips.
  • First advertise and try to get the neighbors in on the act. 2 other families in my neighborhood had sales the same weekend as I did so we all had more foot traffic.
  • Second let your child have a lemonade stand or sell baked goods. This way they are a part of the sale and they can make a little money too.
  • Third think cheap. I don't like to haggle with my yard sale customers. So if they want me to take less I usually say no.
  • Last pay on donating all your leftovers. I had this in mind with my last yard sale. The 'nothing goes back in the house' attitude. So when a junk dealer came by at the end of my sale and offered me $25 to pack it up an haul everything off I was thrilled.
