Did you guys think I gave up on couponing?
Well I didn't! I was out for a couple of weeks because of illness but I am in it more than ever and getting better every day! I was so excited to hear that I got so many of you to at least try to get in the game and I am convinced that THIS post will get even more of you into it...are you ready for how awesome this will be?
This week, I aim to convince you to at LEAST try CVS...or at least start there. THIS is my best series of trips to date and I am excited to share the details with you!
Now these items were purchased on one trip...I honestly don't remember all the specifics but I'll share what I remember.
All the razors and cartridges were on sale for $9.99 each. For each one you got $4 in Extra Bucks (CVS money) and I had a coupon for $4 for each razor and set of cartridge. In the end each item was $2 each...I do remember averaging the cost of each razor blade and it being .88c each. Not too bad right?
I know the Thermacare was free with Extra Bucks. I think the Colgate was .50 each with coupons and Extra Bucks.
What I DO remember...is that on my next trip to CVS...
And if you notice, it's all normal stuff that we would normally use!
There are no tricks involved...I only used coupons, cash and CVS Extra Bucks. I do now buy two newspapers because I learned that the bigger papers (I get the Washington Post) give you MORE coupons and higher value coupons.
HERE is a great post on how to learn CVS and other drug stores.
I would also encourage you to follow For the Mommas and Hip2Save for really great daily deals and heads up on hot coupon items! I don't regularly visit their blogs but just follow them on Facebook.
See? Easy stuff. (Nearly) effortlessly saving amazing amounts of money on NORMAL things!
I've made it my goal to never pay full price for anything ever again...and I will work hard on getting all my toiletries for free or pennies!
So have I convinced any more of you to jump in? WHY pay full price?
