I know it has been a couple weeks since I've filled you in on my frugalista shopping trips. That is because I have been playing it low-key. This doesn't mean, however, that I haven't been clipping coupons. This is an activity I rarely miss; I have, on the other hand, taken a couple weeks off from shopping.
I did make a couple quick stops this week at CVS and Walgreens. Here is the damage:
Total Spent: $11.67
Total Saved: $88.62
Total Extra Care Bucks Earned: $8.00
Old Spice- On sale for $4.00 + B1G1 coupon= 2 for $4.00 + Earned $8.00 ECB= SWEET
Several bottles of wine & 1 bottle of vodka 90% off....I won't be pregnant forever, right?= GREAT DEAL
***I also used a $4 off a $20 purchase coupon that came from the coupon center in the store. Love it!
I felt kinda strange buying alcohol while I'm prego, but my white trash hillbilly neighbor assured me that I didn't look pregnant in the outfit I had on that day. What a relief!
My wine cooler was looking pretty lonely prior to my shopping trip...
But that lone bottle of wine now has some friends to chill out with...
Total Spent: $22.75
Total Saved: $17.50
Total Register Rewards Earned: $9.00
Nivea Body Wash- $5.99 + B1G1 coupon= 2 for $5.99 + earned $6.00 RR
Nivea Chapstick- On clearance for $1.59 + B1G1 coupon= $.79 each
12 packs Pepsi/ Mt. Dew- 3 for $11= $3.67 each + earned $3.00 RR
Overall, I spent quite out of pocket; however, the Extra Care Bucks and Register Rewards that I earned should help me in the next couple weeks to spend less.
