Couponing: My CVS trip

I am by no means an extreme couponer (although a certain coupon show sucked me in when it first aired…goodness gracious), but I love to snatch up deals on products we use/love so I definitely use coupons.  I used to visit CVS and Ralphs every week or two to grab spectacular deals with coupons, but these last several months I’ve yet to do a “real” coupon trip.  What happened to me?  I’m blaming the holidays…which were months ago. ;)

Last night I decided to organize my coupon binder and get to it.  Minus coupons and ExtraBucks, I spent only $5.58 at CVS today.  I use a different shampoo than the one pictured, but my husband doesn’t have finicky hair.  Score!  The detergent is not my preferred brand for our clothes, but for less than $1.50 I will use it for bathroom rugs, scrap towels (for the garage, washing the car), etc.  We love raisins and my husband’s back is killing him so I grabbed those deals as well.

I also scored some fabulous deals at Ralphs:  Tide HE for under $2, Heinz Ketchup for about $1, and more.   Ahh, feels good to be back on the wagon.

What about you?  Do you coupon at all?  Where do you prefer to use your coupons?

  2. Couponing is one of those things that just doesn’t make the time investment cut for me. I get a Sunday paper and clip the coupons in there, and if I have some time when I’m making the grocery list I’ll print some coupons. I guess I’m a “kind of” couponer! Lately I’ve been loving that Target has had sales and coupons for some of their women’s clothing basics – tees and tanks and shorts. Scored a bunch of tees and tanks for $3 and $4 each, including my favorite tee from there. I think I might have it in every color now! haha!

    • That’s how couponing ends up for me. There just seem to be better, more important things to do. I think I’m a “kind of” couponer also ;). I pull a few coupons out of my binder, write my list/matchups and head on in with my little envelope.

      I love those Target deals–woo! I like how you can use a Target coupon on top of a manufacturer coupon. Those are the deals I love. I think I’ll try to at least hit up one store for coupon deals a couple times a month. Let’s see how I manage that!
