Joy's Coupon Craze #1!

So, guess how much I got all this stuff for yesterday? I went to Meijers and CVS.....
Would you believe $10.39 for it all? Well, it's true. My sister, the master at couponing, taught me all her wonderful secrets of saving. Thank you sister! This was my first time clipping coupons and using them in the right way to get the deals... And here is how it turned out...
  • Oscar Meijer lunchables 6 for FREE (reg 2/$3.00)
  • 2 boxes new chocolate Cheerios....both for 3.85 (reg 3.20/box)
  • 2 boxes Barilla whole grain pasta...for .39each (on sale for .89/each)
  • 2 Pantene products (shampoo/hair gel- CVS) for 1.99 each (reg 3.50 each)

Not bad for my first try. I can't wait till next week to do it again, and see how many free things I can get! See, couponing does pay off! Curious to see how it's done? Check it out here, and here, and here!


  1. i clip coupons as well, at times i'll have 10-12.00 worth in coupons at a grocery store and it feels good!

  2. Me too! It makes me so excited to save our family so much money! Also, I don't have to make constant trips to the store because I have started stocking up! Thanks for your comment!
