Well, I'm waiting to hear the damages on the income tax situation…and walked away from the accountant's office this morning and left it in the hands of a professional (and God via my prayer as I was walking away :).
I'm a coupon clipping, bargain hunting, clearance sniffing, money saving maniac…I swear, it's a sickness. I've been a hardcore coupon clipper [yes, I'm giggling, but it's true 🙂 LOL!!] for about a year. Walgreens is my favorite place ever! Here's a shout out to my happy cashiers at the Alma Walgreens! I love you dudes and gals! Yesterday Jenny and I went on a little savings trip just us (no kids for me –it was nice….) With clearance prices and weekly ads we saved a ton! Between coupons, a weekly sale and Register Rewards, I got a great buy on some Vaseline lotion– 6 bottles of (30 % extra bottles, I might add) lotion for a net total of $2.64 + tax. Uh, yeah…seriously. That's like .44 cents a piece! Hello birthday gift bags!!! I follow several blogs that keep the deals posted and I even got a shout out on my favorite one because I shared my Vaseline deal!!! I was so excited! Hip2Save! Check this out if you are looking to save some cash…it's awesome!
Last Thursday…my killer deal was FREE deoderant (actually they paid me to take it :). Degree deoderant was clearance priced at .95 cents each. Buy 6 and recieve a $6 Register Reward (a coupon you can use on your next purchase). Darn it — I had coupons too, but forgot to use them…still, I only paid $5.70 for the deoderant and recieved a $6 RR, a net total of .30 cents TO ME!!! Seriously!!! Such a rush, folks. Clip some coupons, I tell you! (here's a hint…to get the best deals, I usually purchase at least 4 newspapers a week!!!)
