84% Savings Today. Get Saving!

If you're not already following, start. This week she started a new blog feature that will show what deals she is going after, and she's going to start a "stockpile" from scratch. I've decided to follow her plan, adding and subtracting a few deals here and there to meet our needs, of course. ;)

Today's savings included a few special items that may not appeal to you, but you'll get the idea. If any of these sound good to you, jump in! Couponing is easy.

2 Boxes of Wheat Thins, Reg $7.78/2, Sale $4/2, Used 2 Facebook coupons $1/1, Paid $1/ea
2 Boxes of Triscuits, Reg $8.58/2, Sale $4/2, Used 2 Facebook coupons $1/1, Paid $1/ea
2-12pack of Coke Zero, Reg $11.98/2, Sale $8.67 (usually wouldn't buy w/o coupon, but it triggered a $5 Extra Care Bucks, so it was really like paying $3.67 for 2-12 packs)
5 ct Allegra, Reg $7.29, Sale $6.99, Used web coupon $2/1, Paid $4.99 (this also triggered ECBs)
7.8oz Crest ProHealth toothpaste, Reg $5.49, Clearance $1.37, Used coupon fm paper $0.75/1, Paid $0.62

Total Value of Items: $43.54
Paid Out of Pocket: $11.70 (in addition to the coupons, I used $9 in Extra Care Bucks earned last week to get my total so low)
New Extra Care Bucks Received: $11.99

Total Cost: I actually made $0.29! Plus I got $9.25 in new coupons! (Don't forget to scan your Extra Care Card at the kiosk. Keep scanning until it says, "No more coupons available." This means you've received 1 of every type being printed at this time.)

Total Value of Items: $50.08
Total Cost: $15.62 plus I received $10.50 in new coupons
