I’ve always used a few coupons here and there, but recently I’ve been “extreme couponing”. I’m definitely not in the big leagues, but I did manage to start a small stockpile over the last several weeks. Since I usually buy groceries on a week by week basis, I’m beginning to feel a little bit like a hoarder. I’m not used to having things on hand! Here are some of the deals I scored over the weekend:
Nature Valley Granola Bars – $1 per box
I LOVE these, so I stocked up. I now own 16 boxes! =)
So, I may have over bought on these, but I’ve never seen tampons so cheap! I bought 14 boxes and now have a lifetime supply!
Cover Girl Blush – I made $0.52 on each one!!!
Oral B Floss – $0.22 each
I’m usually a Mary Kay makeup person, but I couldn’t pass up making money when buying these. Score!!
Pert Plus – $0.99 per bottle
Softsoap Body Wash – $1 per bottle
Gillette Body Wash – $1.47 per bottle
I’m pretty sure I won’t need body wash or shampoo for my hubby in quite awhile! My only problem?!?! We do not have a pantry or basement, so I’ve yet to find a great place to store all of my bargains…..hence why my items are still sitting in their Walgreens bags!
Overall, I feel like I got some pretty good deals on some products I use on a daily basis. Plus, the planning is super simple thanks to an amazing blog called The Krazy Coupon Lady. The ladies behind this blog are so helpful with tutorials and advice for beginners like myself!!
But, my favorite part of their blog is the Krazy This Week, where they list the best deals by store and tell you which coupons to use. How easy! I’ve been using this guide to score the best deals.
Since I’m just starting out, do any of you extreme couponers (pretty sure I just made up that word) out there have any tips you’ve learned? I want to make the most of my time and effort, so I’m soaking up all of the coupon knowledge I can get! =)
