CVS 1/16/11

This time around I am going to be more conscious of the items I purchase couponing. My goal this year is to save while couponing to to help eliminate debt.

So, to get started, I first stop this year was to CVS. My stockpile has slowly withered so now its time to get back on track.

Transaction 1
3 packs of Charmin ultra soft tissue @ $9.99 each
(note: the deal is for the 16 rolls but some stores have bonus pack left over from a previous deal which includes 4 more rolls)

Total including tax was $32.07 OOP, received $10 ECB.

Transaction 2
6 pepsi product 12 packs @ 3/$20

USED: $10 ECB from trans 1

Total including tax was $10.60 OOP, received $10 ECB

Transaction 3
2 Purex liquid detergent B1G1 @ $6.59
Goddie Scunci @ $2.99

USED: $10 ECB from transaction 2

Total was $.14 OOP.

Finally, I paid $39.45 + tax for $92.08 worth of merchandise!!!

New York & Company

If any of you have signed up for emails from NY & Co, they released a fabulous 3-day $50 off $100 coupon that is good for anything in the store, the coupon limited some sales but the manager assured me it was valid on ANYTHING! The coupon expires tomorrow so HURRY!

I just return home from my local mall and I grabbed so nices pieces spending $50.33 OOP plus tax and saving $137.25. I purchased 2 shirts, 3 pair of socks, 2 sweaters, 1 pair of gloves, and 2 pair of sunglasses.

I'm BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having a full time career and being a full time student has consumed SO much of my time. I did not coupon for most of last year, but this year I decided to get back in tune with the savings! Hopefully I can manage my time to include couponing like I was before when I was unemployed. This is going to be a challenge but I just have to prioritize my time and not procrastinate.
