My Couponing Home Run!!!

Posted by MomOf2Boys On July - 2 - 2011 ADD COMMENTS
I just scored a home run tonight at CVS… and YES! I am going to tell you how I just did it…
Tip #1.  Every item you put in your cart/basket HAS to be matched up with a coupon… even if its a buy 1 get 1 free deal…
Tip #2. If the coupon tells you that you can get $x Off for ANY product made by that particular manufacture, YOU BETTER BELIEVE that they have a product that’s either the same amount displayed on that coupon or less.
Tip #3. If you really really need to buy something… let’s say dish detergent, make sure to purchase the brand that’s giving you EXTRABUCKS back so you can use those bucks later!
Tip #4. ALWAYS scan your CVS card prior to purchasing so the machine can load your card up with all of that week’s deals AND so you can get your coupons for items that are on sale for that week.
Okay… So here’s what I did…
I had a list that I prepared from Sunday 6/27, however, like always, I got there a little too late… meaning that everything I wanted to get (because they were onsale and are matchable with coupons for deep savings) were already GONE…
So, after going to several CVS on Sunday, Monday & Tuesday, I thought I’d wait until today to go shopping because CVS stores have up to 2 stocking days per week…
I went to CVS #1… and they were out of everything I needed. So I pressed on to CVS #2 for the evening…  They didn’t have everything I needed, however, they had enough items for me to get what I wanted close to nothing (or so I thought)…
Anywho… these are the following coupons I had and the pricing for the items…
- $4 off Any Lumune Product  = I purchase 1 Pack of Lumune Cleaning Clothes (make up remover clothes) $2.99 (CVS had a sale going on that I didn’t know about, 2 or more of this product rings up at $2.75 ea.) So they paid me $1.25 to take this home.
- $4 off Any Lumune Product   = I purchase 1 Pack of Lumune Cleaning Clothes (make up remover clothes) $2.99 (CVS had a sale going on that I didn’t know about, 2 or more of this product rings up at $2.75 ea.) So they paid me $1.25 to take this home.
- $2 off Wisk HE 2x Clothing Detergent = CVS had a sale going on. Buy 1 get 1 free. $8.99 – $4.00 for the two $2off coupons… So I got this for … $4.99
- $2 off Wisk He 2x Clothing Detergent = CVS had a sale going on. Buy 1 get 1 free. I got this one for FREE.
- $1 off Twizzlers 12 – 17 once bag of candy CVS is having a sale on this. 3/$6 … but you don’t have to buy ALL 3 to still get the deal.  1/$2 … with the coupon it was 1/$1…
- $3 off ANY two Pantene products … CVS is having a sale on Pantene items… 2/$6.97… I got these for $3.97
- $5.99 ExtraBucks
- $4 off CVS total purchase of at least $20…
Retail value including tax … came up to $35.56 … after all of my coupons & my Extrabucks, CVS ended up owing me -$0.03 (I earned $2 in Extrabucks this trip).
Talk about feeling good… This is the best shopping experience I’ve ever had… and to think, I STILL didn’t get everything I wanted… Hopefully CVS will have those items in stock tomorrow… (time to build up the stockpile for extra cheap!!!)
Look for another post from me telling what is still good out there for the pickings for this week … CVS & Target both have some good deals out there providing you can get your hands on the coupons…
If you are interested in having a one on one class for me to share the ‘Art Of The Deal: Couponing’ let me know…  I will be starting up classes here in the Metroplex Very SOON!!! Please gather a group of people, the cheaper the deal (groups of 5 or more $10 a person, 2-4 $20 a person, 1/1 $40) … the fewer number of people, the more time we will have to cover more aspects of couponing…

5 Fall Fashion Must Haves…

Posted by MomOf2Boys On September - 15 - 2009 ADD COMMENTS

I really like the show TLC Show ‘What Not To Wear’… Funny, where’s the show when you need them… he he he… especially around fall season. Hello PEOPLE… You can’t stretch Summer into Fall!!! Well, you can try all you may, but it just AIN’T RIGHT! Ya hear me!!! It Isn’t Right!!!

Smile… speaking of such, here are my 5 Fall Fashion Must Haves that are strictly for the fall and no other season but the fall…

1. Nice pair of leg hugging boots… Medium Brown is the best color… with matching purse
2. Gotta have Accessories…
3. A not so busy sweater…
4. A Knitted cap w/ scarf…
5. A wonderfully snug pair of jeans…

Now, what I do with these items is simple. I mix and match them with my current wardrobe, but I make sure that this staple is accessorized my by current giddy-up. Smile… hence is the purpose of spending like crazy in the mall, don’t buy them to ALL be worn together. Make the items last longer by introducing them to the rest of your fab fashion…

Okay, so you’ve come up with a few ideas as to what you want to get for yourself… click here to find out what malls near you are having giving away merchandise at rock bottom prices…

Achieving High Style at Value Prices…

Posted by MomOf2Boys On September - 11 - 2009 ADD COMMENTS

Call me crazy, but you better finish the sentence by adding ‘Like a Fox’ on the end of it… He he he…

I don’t know about you, but these hard economic times call for adjustments and evaluations. I’ve adjusted my shopping a little as it pertains to where I shop and when i shop their, hence, I am able to better evaluate my shopping situation. And wouldn’t you know it, it allows me to be a little more selective about the products that I buy.

For instance, there’s nothing wrong with shopping at Target, JCPenny’s as well as the Gap. But I bet you didn’t know that the Gap has items on clearance from time to time that beat out the savings that you’re able to acquire at these other stores.

Now, some say that the best day to shop is on Wednesday. I don’t really know about that. I prefer getting to know the store clerks on a name to name basis. As soon as I hit the door, they know that I am shopping for my 1yr old and my 11yr old and they know how my 11yr old prefers his jeans and shirts. From the moment I hit the door, they know I am looking for the best merchandise and for a reasonable price. Oh! And trust me, though it may be ALL ABOUT THE SALE for that particular moment, GAP clerks know that their brand has power.

The clerks know that their clientele are looking for that GAP name as well as that price that bridges the gap between them and let’s say Target and or Sears.

So, what does this have to do with Achieving High Style at Value Prices? Everything!!! Shop where you feel comfortable, but remember the bottomline. Don’t be afraid to shop at certain and particular stores because when they have sales, they often time beat out the regular run of the mill around the block stores in a heartbeat.

Oh! And don’t be afraid to shop online. Often time you can great deals online for items that the store either no longer or can’t stock.

Be a smarter and more stylish shopper during these hard times. Come on! You can do it! Oh! And to help you out, here are a few links you are going to want to USE!!!!
