My living situation had changed, where those who I am living with do not completely understand the value of couponing. I do my best to encourage them to coupon by finding coupons that they can use, and give it to them when they are out shopping. Sometimes I find really rare coupons for vegans/gluten-free/high value, etc., and my SO doesn’t use them. They can’t understand why I get annoyed, and why I am so set on saving $$$ where I can. It’s frustrating, and so I have difficulty matching my coupons without my SO’s negativity… (it’s complicated).
Anyways, I had some high value ECBS expiring today, and put something together in an hour. I probably could have saved more, if I could have found the coupons for them. But, I am at the point, that being able to GO to CVS without the other person that I live with breathing down my neck… is, shall we say, a rare occasion. So here it goes…
Oral B Manual 1ct toothbrush. Buy 2, Receive 4ECB. Limit 2.

– 1.50 MRC coupons.com

– 1.00 off of $4.00 CVS coupon
-8 ECB from Transaction 1
-2 ECB from three weeks ago
saved: 18.23 or 95%
without tax: .47 + .93 = $1.40
with tax: 2.22 + 2.00 = 4.22 (9.0%)
Saved total: $9.72 + $18.23 =$27.97
I could have paid $29.37 to $32.19. But I didn’t.
I bought very useful items, that I use, and can donate or give as stocking stuffers… I wish that more folks would embrace couponing rather than think that it something that crazy people do on TLC. Oh well, I guess I will continue to have to work on my SO. Maybe they’ll come around one of these days.
