January 10, 2010


These 3 items were just .78 total. Used $1 coupons on the Buddy Bar and the Let's Grow Chicken & Stars soup, so they were both free, and the chocolates were on clearance for .80!

I actually just ordered 20 of the Let's Grow coupons on eBay today, since they were $1 at Walmart, and free after coupons.  I paid $2.28 for 20 $1 coupons, so that will make each meal about .11!  Not bad for a quick little lunch item for the kids, add a sandwich and some veggies...good to go.

I also ordered 30 of the $2.50 Electrasol coupons, I'm down to 3 boxes from last time I got it free so I need to stock up.  Now, I really don't like paying for coupons, but I paid $6.45, to save $75...so I figure that's pretty worth it considering it's something I use every day.  I should be able to pick it up for about $1 a box unless it goes on a better sale somewhere before the coupons expire, and I'd rather do that than pay full price for each box as I need it.   (And no I don't think I will use all 30 of those coupons, I tend to order extra for my mom, haha).

CVS, this was several transactions to make it the least out of my own pocket and to avoid large ECBs printing since if you buy several like items that produce ECBs it puts them all together (ie, four $3 ECBs would print out as a $12 ECB, etc...and with 6 boxes of those bars, that would have been a $36 ECB, haha).

Anyway, my total spending out of my own pocket was  $3.04.  For 21 items...not bad ;o)
  • 3 rolls of wrapping paper that were .39 each!  (Not pictured above, but will be pictured below)
  • 6 boxes of Soy Joy bars
  • 1 J&J first aid kit
  • 1 Puffs tissues
  • 2 Pantene shampoo
  • 4 Oust
  • 1 Pringles
  • 1 Coke (single serve bottle...not pictured)
  • 1 spool of ribbons
  • 1 gift tags
  • 1 two-pk razors
  • 2 Visine

Three of these (the Charlie Brown) wrapping papers are from CVS, marked down to .39 each, and the Yo Gabba Gabba paper was marked down to .75 at Walmart.  So 190 feet of wrapping paper for $1.92!
