*New Adventure- Learning the art of couponing!

WOW….that’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the craziness I have endured these past few days!  I recently decided I wanted to learn how to coupon….but not just normal couponing…EXTREME COUPONING!!!  You know, like the people you see on the hit t.v. show “Extreme Couponers”! Well I quickly realized that it is a lot of work and takes a lot of time-Just at first though!

4 days in and I already see a huge improvement in my coupling skills!!!

It is hard, confusing and time consuming at first, but once you understand the rules and learn to actually read the fine print, it becomes easier and…well, addicting!!!

I’m obviously no pro yet (although, I’m determined to become one) but I’ll share with you the few great deals I have snagged using coupons and rewards from different stores this week….

 

*First great deal comes to you from CVS-Sign up for their rewards program and earn
cash on select items bought!

*Next, I used Target’s awesome app “Cartwheel” and saved 50% OFF these packs of gum!
-Hello stocking stuffers! $0.99 each/ $0.33 a pack!!! WOW!

I’m pretty proud of this target haul. I used coupons on every item…
out of pocket I spent….
*drumroll please… $3.47!
Yay! The razors were $2.89 each and i used a $3 coupon making them free (just pay tax)!!!
The glade was all on clearance for $1.45 each and i used a $1/1 coupon!!

Another great Target Haul…
Paid $12.00 (using coupons) got a $5.00 target gift card for buying 5 (their promo right now)
So minus the $5 gift card makes it $7.00 = $1.40 Each!!!!

Yes- couponing is hard, yes it takes up a lot of your time…BUT the more you do it and the more you read up on it the easier it gets….the better you get…the faster you get at it and the more money you will save!!!
