I try to always use coupons when shopping . I like to get things free using coupons and at times I do , this week I did get a few things free and the rest dirt cheap .
I do love it when the coupons match up with the sale that is out for the week . This is when I get the most savings and I stock up if possible .
I shopped today at two stores while I was in town paying bills and going to the post office . I like to get more than one thing done while in town , it also saves gas .
First Store :
CVS : two transactions :
6 - All washing liquid $7.29 on sale 2 for $7.00 - Promotion buy $20 worth and get $5 extra bucks back = $21.00 Used three $2.00 off two mft. coupon = $17.10 (tax added ) AND I received $5.00 ecb back .
Transaction two :
3 - Diet Pepsi $5.99 - on sale 3 for $10.00 -Promotion buy 3 and get $2.00 extra bucks back = $11.00 ( tax included ) Used $5 extra bucks that I just got = $6.00 AND I received $2.00 ecb back .
Total for both before sale and coupons was $64.81
I paid $23.10 AND I got $2.00 ecb to spend next time .
Total savings at CVS = $41.71
Publix Grocery store
I love my publix , they double coupons up to .50 and I never get Hassled about using coupons at this store .

That is how I like to spend minimal and get what I will need in the soon future . I have washing liquid for six months for $12.10 (remember I got that $5 back ) . I have air fresheners for around .41 each that`ll last a long time . I got FREE nose tissue and that will last for a while around here too . Band-aid for under .50 a box !
Work less . Earn less . Pay less . Minimalism at its best .
