Couponing Valentine’s Day

20140218-072308.jpgIt really felt so freeing getting to Target the morning after Valentine’s Day. And while there are a few items I am going to wait to go 75% off I was really happy with the items I did get. And while my out of pocket was a lot higher than normal I allow myself $15-$20 to spend at Target each month on my Target card and I came in under budget! I am also a sucker for holiday items!

Back At It At CVS

Feeling good after having two good weeks of couponing in a row! Thanks to the people I follow on Instagram who spotted the Axe body wash & deodorant on clearance…because they were NOT marked clearance at mine!!

Another reason why CVS is the absolute best…easy scanning! Sometimes I feel like I scan the entire store but it’s definitely such a big help! I never would have found these deals if I didn’t scan them first!

Couponing in 2014

20140121-071535.jpg

I got this awesome email from CVS last week. Look how much money I saved at CVS last year!! All that free money! To be in the top 13% of savers in only my first real year of couponing feels really good.

Truthfully I haven’t been finding many great deals in 2014. I did find some really great Christmas clearance finds at CVS a few weeks ago that will be great for my present closet I am starting.

My mom has had a present closet for as long as I can remember and I think it is a really great and practical idea. Always good to have gifts on hand for last minute presents or just presents you got at a really great price!

I picked up some things over Christmas and post Christmas that I got amazing deals on that will be perfect presents down the line!

This Week’s Haul: It’s not much but I’m getting back into it!

November Coupon Totals

Pretty slow month here! 5 weeks and I only really shopped for 3 of them! Yikes. Just not that many great deals out there I am liking right now. Overall in November I spent $6.52 for $103.93 worth of products. Got a lot of interesting products…I really loved those microwaveable oatmeal; they were perfect for work. My boyfriend devoured those those Blue Diamond coffee mocha almonds. And hey I also got a free ticket to see Catching Fire (still have to go!!!) so really I should add an additional $13 to my product total.
