Frugal Friday June 25

Life as Mom

This is my seventh week taking part in Frugal Friday.(Although it’s been months since I’ve done it!) It is put on by Life as Mom. She wants us to share a tip a week about what keeps us staying in the Black. It feels good to get back to couponing. I hadn’t realized how much I was missing it until I jumped back in full force this week!
Please hop over to Life as Mom to check out more Frugal Friday posts! This week she’s talking about how to live without credit cards!

CVS


CVS had some good deals on Huggies. Supposedly you were supposed to be able to get a $3 coupon if you scan your card. I got a 10% off coupon but it was not allowed to be used on sale merchandise. Bummer.

Total $19.44
Total Savings $9.23 or 32.19%! (Plus I got back $10 ECB)

Jewel


I went to Jewel and planned on getting the Dairy Deal where you get a $5 CAT back. Got done checking out and no CAT. Turns out I bought the wrong size whipped cream but the manager gave me a CAT anyway. He was very sweet.

    I found a $3 coupon on huggies on coupons.com.

    • That’s the coupon I used at CVS. You were supposed to also be able to get a CVS coupon that you could stack to get $6 off.

  2. Oh my good gravy!! I want to go shopping with you!! 🙂 You did great! I need to stop by Walgreen’s but I am on my last day of doubles this week and don’t think it’s going to happen – I really wanted to get some of that shampoo and body wash!! Have a great weekend!

  3. I didn’t get the $3 CVS coupon at the Kiosk for the Huggies so I didn’t do it!
