I Saved!!

I hear of all these people who save massive money using coupons and going to, of all things, their local pharmacy to purchase grocery items. It was my turn at Walgreen's yesterday. 

I looked at the flyer for sale items we would use, clipped coupons, then I went to a coupon website to grab a couple more coupons for deeper savings. 

My biggest accomplishment was getting the new Purex Detergent/Dryer sheet combo packs on sale, 2 for 1 at $8.99 - $1.00 coupon = $7.99!!! We're set for the rest of the summer!

Walgreens Coupon Savings: $21.05
Walgreens Advertised Savings: $31.00
Manufacturer Coupon Savings: $1.75
Your Total Savings: $53.80

I honestly think I could have saved more money if I had taken more time to clip coupons from a coupon website and if I had looked at the CVS flyer to compare prices and show it to the cashier for a price comparison markdown. But $53.80 wasn't bad for 30 minutes work!

Wow! I'm impressed. I'm never that organized. It's really worth it though.
