This week was a fruitful trip! There were a few items that were out of stock, but that’s okay. By adding to my stockpile little by little, it’s not a big deal if I miss a few deals. I bought so much that I couldn’t fit it all in the picture! How was your week?

    KCL, just wondering about the toothpaste. Have there been fewer deals on name brand toothpastes recently? I haven’t seen any for free with coupons since this spring and last winter. What do you consider a good price for toothpaste when there is a shortage of good deals?

  2. Steph says:

    i ran into walgreens this morning before work…
    bought 2 irish springs, 2 herbal essence, 1 revlon nail polish….got $7 register rewards to use tonight on my 2nd trip!!
    at lunch i ran into CVS got 2 packs huggies (for a baby shower), 2 Lady Speed Stick , 2 Colgate Total Toothpastes, however they didnt have the wisk so i didnt get that deal but the huggies took me to 30 so i got the 10.00 reward :-)

    Thats Great!! Your truly an inspiration!  :) I have just started getting coupons together for about the last week.  I bought the binder and everything I need. Im planning my first shopping trip tomorrow!  My BF has given me quite the challenge.  He thinks yes, I will be able to save but only about 20% every time we go shopping. He said he thinks it will take me about 6 months to just save the money that i spent on the printer and stuff I bought to start couponing.  But im up to the challange!!

  4. sully says:

    wow you did amazing. i got a lot of those deals too. great week.

  5. Halea7 says:

    why is everyone so sceptical to save money ? its not a scam it works even my family is down on it but when my son needs laundry detergent or toothpaste I’m his best friend lol

    • Anonymous says:

      I love saving money and have saved so much since using coupons back in May and have a good stockpile going too. I love my binder goes with me everywhere! :) I am saving now up to 50-70% on shopping trips, and what I do is just what ever the receipt said we save and we now put that amount in a seperate bank about and its really showing

      Thanks KCL!

    For the Touch Verio IQ Blood Glucose Monitoring System is it regional, because when I scanned it at the red box it have me the price of 69.99

  7. Jenessa says:

    well actually if you think about it shouldnt you count the money you paid as the money that comes out of your pocket… all of those were paid 4 here paid 5 here paid 14 here, seams like alot of money comin out of pocket.

    • Anonymous says:

      Everyone counts their rewards differently. You can count them before or after, as long as you don’t do both! This week’s out of pocket (OOP) was more than normal but I was able to score so much that it’s worth the extra OOP. If it was $260 worth of product with sales prices, it was so much more at retail! Remember, you can tailor your scenarios to better suit your budget.

    •  I am a graduate student in RI and at first I had to put out a little bit of money (I’ve been couponing a little more than a year now). However, I used a lot of KCL tips to help me learn how to roll my rewards. When you do that, you really aren’t putting out any more money (except for tax). HTH

  8. Hmayn says:

    How did you get so many rewards at each of the stores? Did you use separate cards, I thought it was a limit of 2 rewards on items per week?

    • Anonymous says:

      Which are you referring to? Walgreens, Target and Safeway don’t have limits and everything bought at the other stores were within limits. Target limits 4 like coupons per day but that wasn’t exceeded, either.

      • Hmayn says:

         I am referring to Rite Aid and CVS mostly. I thought I read that you were only allowed (2) extrabucks rewards or Rite Aid Up rewards each week? I could be wrong.. if I am, then this changed my whole couponing plan!

    The Nivea Q10 is 10.49 isnt it?
