Seriously this is going to sound criminal. But it’s not.
I literally walked out of CVS this week with 20 SoBe Lifewater drinks without paying a cent. Zip, nada, nothing. I was so excited and the lady clerk there is getting to know me pretty well, needless to say! Plus, while I was playing the online game to win more BOGO coupons, I ended up winning Jeremy an iTunes gift card! YAY!
In other CVS news (think tv announcer here), this evening I popped in there to see if they restocked some items that I was waiting on. Well, I was bummed that they were out of the SoBe’s, seems there is someone that really likes them……but anyway, they had Dawn Dish soap on sale for .97. I just so happened to have a $1 off coupon! I also had a coupon for the new Purex 3-in-1 laundry sheets, which after ECB’s and the sale I paid .99 for. I also grabbed 6 boxes of Band-Aids. They were on sale for $1.99 a box, and I had two coupons for $3 off three boxes, which made them each .99. I checked the prices of the same bandages at Walmart, and the deal was much sweeter at CVS. So I got to the checkout, and let me tell you there is something about watching that total amount dwindle down to almost nothing that makes this mom of many so happy! Wanna know my total out of pocket? $1.93!
Moving on…..I stopped in at Walgreens after I saw in their ad a sale on Pilot Frixion Eraseable pens. They were on sale for $1.99, minus a $1 off Walgreens cpn, and I had printed a coupon from Pilot’s website to make the pens absolutely free. I don’t think the manager was real pleased with me, but hey, I got my free pens! I walked out with a huge smile on my face!
I know lately all I’ve been writing about has been coupons, but they have just transformed my shopping experiences. It is very gratifying to know that you can look inside your pantry and not have to worry about having enough washing powder for the next week, or toothpaste when the kids go to camp, or something for a quick snack or meal.
I promise I will soon be writing about my family again. In fact, I took pics of our first day back at school and I will post them soon. But for now, couponing it is!
