My Bargain Shopping

I did a little bargain shopping today and was quite pleased with my small "haul." This was a purchase I made at CVS. Every item I purchased, I had a manufacturer's coupon for. I also had some "free CVS money" in the form of Extra Care Bucks from a previous purchase. Can you guess what I spent on this trip? I bet it will surprise you....I spent a total of $1.57 out of pocket(and that was all tax)!! Now here is the bonus, I made $23.97 in Extra Care Bucks to use on a future purchase! Supposedly, I saved a total of $40.79, although, realistically, I never would have bought these items for that amount. If you want to get started on some bargain shopping of your own, I suggest checking out the website www.pinchingyourpennies.com. It is a great resource, they even match your coupons to the weekly store ads. Also, if you are in Utah or Arizona, the website www.sistersavings.net is pretty useful. A stake relief society president down here started the website and it is a good start on your 3 month supply. Did I mention my new calling is Stake Canning Specialist? I am trying to get our family going on our supply.
