I am by no means an extreme couponer (although a certain coupon show sucked me in when it first aired…goodness gracious), but I love to snatch up deals on products we use/love so I definitely use coupons. I used to visit CVS and Ralphs every week or two to grab spectacular deals with coupons, but these last several months I’ve yet to do a “real” coupon trip. What happened to me? I’m blaming the holidays…which were months ago.
Last night I decided to organize my coupon binder and get to it. Minus coupons and ExtraBucks, I spent only $5.58 at CVS today. I use a different shampoo than the one pictured, but my husband doesn’t have finicky hair. Score! The detergent is not my preferred brand for our clothes, but for less than $1.50 I will use it for bathroom rugs, scrap towels (for the garage, washing the car), etc. We love raisins and my husband’s back is killing him so I grabbed those deals as well.
I also scored some fabulous deals at Ralphs: Tide HE for under $2, Heinz Ketchup for about $1, and more. Ahh, feels good to be back on the wagon.
What about you? Do you coupon at all? Where do you prefer to use your coupons?
