Believe it or not, I hadn’t been to CVS in a couple weeks, so when I saw one of my favorite laundry detergents on sale, I got my coupons and headed out.
So, they had the Purex 3 in 1 boxes on for b1g1. If you haven’t tried them-they are great. They are detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheet all in one. And they smell good-that’s always a huge plus for me! Anyhow, they had them on for an insane amount-$8.99 apiece. If you go to Walmart, they sell them for $4 something. Crazy-right?
But I had 3 $3 off coupons so I grabbed 4 boxes of them, and used 3 of the coupons, because if you will remember you can still use the coupons on b1g1 items-it will just lower the price you pay for the item you technically “buy.” I also had a coupon for another razor, and a free shave gel coupon to use as well. Oh, and I had a raincheck for some free pencils from AUGUST, that I FINALLY got to use! I nearly threw it away the day before because it had been forever since they had these pencils in, but alas, they happened to have two packs in Friday. Homeschool mamas always need pencils. 🙂
This is what happened at checkout: CVS emailed me a $5 off of $30 coupon, and my total was already over that. I hand the cashier the CVS coupon, then my razor coupon, Purex coupons, shave gel cpn, and the total came to $7 and some change. I had a $5 ECB that I could use, and did so, which made my total out of pocket $1.91. My receipt said I saved over $48!!! I have saved almost $700 since starting in July and I am so excited!
If you are tempted to give up on the couponing thing-I don’t blame you; it can be overwhelming. If you stick with it though, you will save and you will have more money to hopefully spend on the things you love, as opposed to toilet paper and razors, lol!
