9-11-11 Couponing Trip

I had a rare Sunday off of work so I decided to go couponing! I haven’t had the time to do a huge couponing trip in a long time. My mom came with me and it was a lot of fun!


First we went to WinnDixie where we spent .15 cents and got 4 Hershey’s bars! You can never have too much chocolate!

Then we went to Walgreens where we got dish soap for .25 cents and toothpaste free after Register Rewards(Walgreens Dollars)

(use .75/1, makes it 25¢)

I then used my Register Rewards towards something I needed to buy anyway because with store dollars it’s like being able to spend the money twice. I try to make sure I use the store dollars in a way that I am able to get the most for my money.


The CVS coupon machine was printing free coupons for the New Newtons Fruit Thins and then I did the below deals.

I bought the first three deals first in one transaction and then I used the ECBs I had received from that transaction toward next transaction.

On Both Transactions-

Spent- $9.74

Received- $10.00 ECBs (CVS Dollars)

Saved- $60.00

I’ll be able to use the CVS dollars on my next trip and because I spent less than I received back it was like getting everything I bought for free!


At Publix I got a lot of great deals. I looked at the weekly sales and both the yellow and green coupon booklets that are currently out. I did a lot of deals and also bought a few things that we needed even though there weren’t coupons for them. It has been a long time since I have done a large couponing trip for groceries. Those tend to be the most time consuming because there are the most items. After the results I had I know why I should do them more often.


Spent- $34.53

Saved- $65.94

In one day I saved $136.42. Not bad at all.
