It’s official. I am HOOKED on couponing and bargain shopping! I just returned from an amazing trip to Target and CVS. I got some AWESOME deals! When I called my husband to tell him I was coming home, I said, “No offense, honey, but I think I’ve just had the most exhilarating night of my life!” (He WAS, indeed, offended.) It’s almost midnight, I usually go to bed around ten, and I’m so hyper I’m annoying myself. I’m on a couponing HIGH! I am ADDICTED! Bobby just asked me, “WHAT are you on?” ’cause I’ve been dancing around the living room like a 13-year-old mixing Pop Rocks with Red Bull!! What’s got me sooo excited? How about the fact that I got all THIS:
for $6.03 out-of-pocket at Target. That’s four glade scented oil candle trios, six travel packs of Huggies Wipes, a Hudson Hornet car for Joshua (Merry Christmas!) and two packages of post-it-notes. I LOVE Target and I usually spend WAY TOO MUCH there. Not tonight!! Thanks to my BFF Crystal at Money Saving Mom, I learned that when you buy said Glade candle or the Glade Wisp Flameless Candle, you get a $5 Target gift card. Well, I had two B1G1 Free coupons from Coupons.com for the scented oil candles, plus, coupons for $4 off from a newspaper insert a few weeks ago. Crystal also alerted her blog readers to a $3 off two huggies products coupon good only at Target. Those travel packs of wipes were 97 cents each, and so the coupon took an extra $1.06 off my total! So, I paid $5.27 for two candles and two packs of wipes and got $10 in gift cards. THEN, I went back and did the deal again, but this time I got FOUR packs of Huggies wipes, and used TWO $3 off coupons in addition to my B1G1 and $4 off Glade coupon. This time my total was only $4.14, and I put it on a GIFT CARD and got $10 back in GIFT CARDS! Making my total profit $15.86. HOLLA! I then used those gift cards and some $2 off post-it-note coupons (post-its were $1.19) to buy my rubbermaid drawer which we really needed, and the Hudson Hornet car for Joshua for Christmas. My out-of-pocket total was 76 cents on this final transaction. So all in all, I spend $6.03. NOT. TOO. SHABBY!!!!
My CVS haul was awesome too. My kids now have plenty of stocking stuffers, but I will save that post for SUPER SAVINGS SATURDAY!
Allright, I am starting to come down from my shopping high now…better get to bed before I start getting the shakes!!
