An Oldie But a Goodie…

Coupon Maineiacs

This shopping trip is from just before Christmas. I was on a mission to shop four stores with $4, and I did it! Here are the details:

Walgreens:

3 Snickers Nutcracker Candies
Sale Price $.39 each with in-flyer coupon
Used 1 $1/2 Mars Holiday Candies
Final Price $.23 for all 3

CVS:

2 Packs of Huggies
Sale Price $9.49 Each
Used 2 $3/1 Huggies CVS Store Coupon
Stacked with 2 $2/1 Huggies coupon from last month’s Wal-Mart Baby Insert
Price after coupons $8.98 which is a great deal to start with!
I paid with $5 in ECB from last week’s Almay Deal
Plus the remaining $4.42 from my $10 gift card for purchasing $30 of select products 2 weeks ago
Final Out of Pocket $.46
I also got $1 ECB back, and have now bought 6 packages of Huggies, so I earned 1 FREE!!!

Shaw’s:

Birds Eye Steamfresh Vegetables
Sale Price $1 each
Used 4 $.50/1 Steamfresh which doubled
Final Price FREE

Land ‘O Lakes Cinnamon Butter
Sale Price $1.50 each
Used 3 $.75/1 from the 11/13 SmartSource which doubled
Final Price FREE

HomeLife Utility Sponge 2-Pack
Priced at $.99
Used 1 $1/1 HomeLife Cleaning or Trash Bag Product from the Holiday Savings Book (in stores)
Final Price FREE

Essential Everyday Fettucini
Priced at $1.29
Used 1 $1/1 EE Product from the Holiday Savings Book
Final Price $.29

Total for all, $.29!!!

Wal-Mart:

The best part about coupons at Wal-Mart is they allow overages. Tonight, I knew I would be able to use my 4 $3/1 Kikkoman Panko Breadcrumbs or Sauce Coupon for a product priced less than the coupon. I went with 4 different sauces; two were priced at $1.82 each, the other two were $2.08 each. This gave me an overage of $4.20 to start with!

2 Dole Lettuce
Priced at $2.48 each
Used 1 $2/1 Dole Salads Coupon (use zip code 80015)
Final Price $2.96

2 Oakhurst Iced Tea
Priced at $1.37 each
Used 2 $1/1 Oakhurst Product Coupons (Like them on Facebook)
Final Price $.74 for both

Beechnut Rice Cereal $1.50
Used 1 $.60/1 Beechnut Cereal
Paid $.90

Because I love my husband so much, I bought him a pizza
Priced at $1.98
No Coupons, but it was the cheapest one there :-)

Final Cost $2.54
What makes this even better? I returned two packages of Christmas ornament hooks for a refund of $2.04, so my actual out of pocket was only $.50. To be fair, I won’t count that in my total for the night since I did spend the money in the first place.

Total spent at all stores $3.52, plus $1 ECB and Free Huggies earned!!!

Never miss a coupon, deal or freebie again!
