I seem to get that question quite bit and sometimes I am baffled by the fact that there are still so mny people that don't coupon. Couponing has become a tremendous money saver for my family. I began to coupon because each month, my budget was in the red and I was tired of it. I wanted a way to still enjoy activities and outtings with my daughters without worrrying about sacrificing essentials. Once I began to really invest some time, effort, and energy into learning the ropes of couponing, I have begun to see the savings. With that being said, here is a picture of a small Rite Aid haul from Friday, October 19th, 2012:
This cost me .68, yup, you read that correctly...SIXTY EIGHT CENTS!!!
I bought 3 Skinny Cow candies using a buy 2 get 1 free coupon, 4 large Air Wick candles that were on clearance for $1.49 each, 1 Robitussin cough medicine using a $2 in ad coupon, and a $3 manufacturer coupon, and one Con Air Hair brush using a $2.00 in ad coupon. I also used a $7 store reward from Rite Aid! It is so exciting that stores like CVS, Walgreen's, and Rite Aid actually pay you to shop in the form of store rewards when you buy products from their stores, think loyalty program to the extreme!! I absolutely love couponing!!! I never knew shopping could be this REWARDING, literally, rewarding!!
