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!

Very excited about all of the things I was able to pick up this week. It’s always a fun surprise when a $5 ECB spits out of the magic coupon machine at CVS because you hit another $50 spent on beauty products. I had problems at CVS using the P&G coupons…the cashier said I could only use one of my Covergirl coupons at a time because the coupon stated 1 coupon pur purchase. YIKES. Cashiers always confuse the term purchase with the term transaction.

  • PER PURCHASE – Each item that you purchase is a single purchase. The wording on a coupon that says “one per purchase” is letting you know that you can use 1 coupon per item purchased.
  • PER TRANSACTION – a transaction is your entire order. Typically P&G allows 4 like coupons in a single transaction.

I didn’t feel like fighting with this cashier…she was Jamaican and feisty and she did let me use the coupons and just do 3 separate transactions so I let it go.
