Today I made my 1st attempt to get some serious deals with coupons.
I bought 2 different local papers this weekend to get the coupons. I actually enjoyed reading the papers too so it's good to know there wasn't waste there and lets face it the papers only cost $3.50 and you get that back in coupons so easily.
My first couponing trip was to Rite Aid. I checked with this site before I went http://www.livingrichwithcoupons.com/ and did the best match-ups I could with only coupons from one week of inserts. In the future the deals will get even better as I build a full body of coupons.
I just put everything I bought into a spreadsheet and figuring in the sales, Up Rewards and Single Check Rebates. I managed to get $77.87 worth of useful product for just $28.53 that's a savings of $49.34, this is great. I will be heading to Shoprite this week too to see what deals I get there.
I can't wait till next week and see what more deals I can get.
