I have a few friends who are avid couponers. They have it down to a science. And for years I thought-what's the point? I never see coupons for things I normally buy anyway, and when I do I usually find the store brand is cheaper.
Apparently I was naive.
*I* thought if you tried to use more than one coupon for the same thing the grocery store police would slap my wrists at the register. I didn't know you could go online to the specific stores you shop at and download digital coupons on to your stores loyalty card. *And* use a paper coupon with the digital ones.
Yesterday I got online and downloaded some digitial coupons. I clipped some paper coupons. I perused the weekly ad online to find if any of those items were on sale. And off we went.
Here are my great deals:
Charmin 12 Double Rolls: Regular price-$ 8.25. I paid-$.99. Woot!
Bounty paper towel, 8 rolls: Regular price-$9.00. I paid-$2.99.
Crest toothpaste- Regular price-$2.75. I paid-$.50. Woot!
Downy softner, 64 loads- Didn't catch the regular price, but the sale price was $4.99. I paid-$2.99
I confess-I went through the self check out because I was embarrassed to be using both digital and paper coupons on the same items. I was afraid I would be called out at the register....but I wasn't!
Coupons make a frugal momma verrrry happy!
