Hello and Hafa Adai My Friends,
After a few weeks of recovery, around the clock feedings, and surviving on coffee – I am back into the swing of things.
Our little guy, Bean is finally here ! He is happy, healthy and always hungry! We are truly blessed and over the moon so in love with him!
I started working on a few projects – sewing cloth masks, origami and my favorite: couponing and finding the best sales in my local area !!!!!
To really hone into couponing this week, I made myself a strong cup of coffee, dug out my favorite lucky couponing socks, and got to work. First, I checked out the Sunday Coupon Inserts schedule to review the latest coupons; then I reviewed my coupons apps for whats trending – sales and deals: Krazy Coupon Lady, Free Stuff Finder, Target, Walgreens, Checkout 51, Saving Star, Ibotta and Lozo! And, lastly, grabbed a couple of weekly coupon inserts at the grocery store.
The first coupon that called out to me was the $1.00 off Ozarka Water from Retail Me Not Everyday coupon insert dated 7/12/2020.
My local HEB was stocked with Ozarka Sparkling water 1 liter bottles!
At check out, I purchased 4: 1 liter bottles, x .86 cents each or $3.44. and scanned (2) coupons, $2.00 was taken off the sale price of all 4 bottles. The final price before applicable sales tax was $1.44.
One coupon is intended for 2 Ozarka 1 liter bottles, however, per coupon disclaimer, it allowed up to 4 like coupons per household per day!
My second deal was found at Walgreens!
This is a Walgreens weekly deal on Purex detergent – no coupon needed – I just used my Walgreens card (I punched in my telephone number on the credit card machine at the cash register.) I thought this was a good deal for this week, but I’ve seen better deals on this detergent.
With my receipt from this transaction, followed a $7.00 reward coupon! This type coupon is very random, and a delight when I get it! YAY! This coupon is valid for a future Walgreens purchase and usually valid for 7 days! The expiration date for this coupon is 7/18/2020, so this means I need to act quick. To benefit from this coupon, I need to spend a minimum of $25.00 or more in store!
Target has awesome back to school items for cheap – I stocked up for the rest of the year:
- Notebooks, top flight brand for .25 cents each;
- Composition note books for .50 cents;
- Crayola crayons, 24 count for .50 cents;
- Target washable markers for .65 cents
Shopping for school supplies is like Christmas Day – both are very exciting and worth the wait!
Later in the evening, I scanned my receipts on Checkout 51, Receipt Hog, and FetchRewards.
This was a small start into couponing after picking it up after a couple of months. Eventually over time, I will have an healthy stockpile of household items for this winter.
