When Krazy Coupon Ladies go shopping, we always (okay, usually) have some sort of reward (RR, EB, +Ups, Catlina) from the previous week that we use and that helps keep our out of pocket expense low.  Many people just buy what they want at each store, using the rewards from the previous week to keep their expenses down.  The first week of couponing is the most expensive.  This expense can be lowered by dividing up your transactions and rolling your rewards from one transaction to the next. We thought you’d like to see a step by step instructions on how to do some of this week’s deals without having those rewards.   We hope this will help our new readers out and show everyone that you can spend relatively little each week to obtain some great product and start building your stockpile.  We’ll start with $25.00-let’s see what we can buy!!  If you’ve never shopped at one of the drugstores with coupons and you are nervous to try it, this is the week to do it; we’ve got it all planned out for ya!

Final total paid out was $30.66-okay, a little over $25.00 but I have $4.00 coming back in SCR’s so that makes it almost $25.00, right??   We also have $10.00 in rewards left so actually we bought all of it for about $15.00 for about $90.00 worth of product (using sale prices).   That’s an almost 85% savings!!  Wahoo!!  I hope that helps some of our new couponers see how we roll our rewards.  This isn’t necessarily the best possible deal one could do, it’s just the way I chose to shop this week.  One of the fun things about couponing is that there are a myriad of paths to take-all with the same goal-saving money and building a stockpile!  

Now if you are an aspiring KCL, this is a GREAT way to start at a drugstore! Good luck!
