Weekly Spending Summary (1/13-1/19)

Some of you have wondered where I get my printable coupons. Here are the main coupon sites that I use: Coupons.com, Coupon Network, Smart Source, Red Plum and Saving Star. Manufacturer websites and Facebook pages are another great source. 

We went home this week for a couple of days and I was in the mood to do some deal shopping so I hit a couple of stores.  I was able to get $40+ worth of stuff for under $4!  (My total below shows $0 but that is because I used a gift card for my CVS purchase.)  Definitely a fun week!  :)

Total Spent: $0!
Total Saved with Coupons: $25.00
Total Saved with Sales: $15.14
Total Saved: $40.14

CVS: $0 (gift card)
Saved with Coupons: $12.00
Saved with Sales: $2.99

I used a gift card that I earned through our credit card rewards program to pay for this purchase, otherwise I would have spent $3.46 out of pocket.

I was pretty happy to get the Venus razor for free…they are my favorite and absolutely amazing!  The Hallmark cards were free too and the Rice Krispies were only $0.50 after coupons and sales.

Bought:

  • Venus Razor $7.99
  • Kellogg’s Rice Krispies $2.00
  • 3 Hallmark Cards $0.99 each
  • CVS Baby Wipes $2.29

Coupons Used:

  • $1.50 Kellogg’s coupon from manufacturer
    (I had tried to print some coupons from their website and they didn’t print for me so I contacted them and they mailed me several)
  • $3.00 Venus coupon from Parade magazine
  • 7.50 in Extra Bucks (CVS coupons that print at register for purchasing specific items)

Got Back:

  • $5.00 Extra Bucks coupon for purchasing the Venus (can use on next purchase of any item)
  • $3.00 Extra Bucks coupon for purchasing the Hallmark cards (can use on next purchase of any item)

Rite Aid: $0
Saved with Coupons: $3.00
Saved with Sales: $0.99

I wasn’t planning to go to Rite Aid since I didn’t really want to have a bunch of UPRewards that I would have to try to use up quick before we left again for another several weeks.  But then I saw this Thermacare deal and decided to just stop in as I was driving by.  One of our neighbors who is an older gentleman has become a good friend of ours.  He has chronic back problems and uses these a lot so I try to get them when I can and help keep him supplied.  He’s on a very limited income and is incredibly grateful!  I love using my couponing to bless others- so fun!

  • Thermacare Heat Wrap $3.00

Weis: $0
