Dumpster diving!

Yup I did it! I'm tired of great deals going by and not being able to stock up because I only have 1 or 2 coupons for that item. I don't want to pay for the coupons which I was thinking I was going to have to resort to. I decide to first try a different slightly dirtier and humbling choice. Recycling bins. I have heard of people, crazy people. That dig through recycling bins for coupon inserts. Well if it's good enough for them it's good enough for me. So after meeting today I went out in the cold and my high heels and dug through my first recycling bin. Thankfully I only almost fell in once. It was a pretty good success. In about 10 min of searching I found almost 10 coupon booklets! Needless to say I had a blast and I am definitely going to continue on doing this. Can't wait to see what I find next week!

For the next 3 days marsh is tripling coupons up to $1.00. There are some restrictions on limits. You can only have 2 of the same coupons that triple in a transaction. So if your needing to stock up like i did you are going to need to do a few separate transactions or recruit some helpers.

This morning I got up at 5 am and kidnapped my husband and sister to help me. I had a good stockpile of coupons so this sale couldn't have come at a better time. This was the biggest shopping trip I have had yet. We ran 4 different transactions to get the most out of the sale. Keep in mind I'm not an EXTREME couponer so I'm not buying 63 free things of ketchup. We only buy enough our family uses before the item expires. This is how we did (I excluded my sisters transaction from this senario)

Before my store card and coupons the total was $320.12 for 106 items. We got 18 things completely free!!! And we saved 73% off of our bill total. Our Total after coupons was only $82.08!!! We saved $238.12!!! For us this is a huge deal! I like to go into a store and always save at least half of my grocery bill with sales and coupon matchups so anything over that is just bonus!

I heart cvs!

     Tonight I went to CVS armed with $13.99 ECBs and headed for the coke zero which is one of my husband and my favorite sodas. They are on sale through the 29th buy 5-12 pks for $15 get $5 ECB. So I am happy to announce we are now the proud owners of 60 cans of coke zero for only $2! Not to mention they gave me a $5 ECB to keep me coming back. Our thirst will be quenched for quite sometime : ).
