Defeated at Walgreens

Posted by Brooke on July 31, 2011 in Lessons, Shopping trips

Sometimes the coupons win, and on my trip to Walgreens, I’d say that happened. Planning is key with this stuff, and I tend to just sort of wing it. I check the blogs, see what the good deals are, check for what coupons I have and then head out. I don’t estimate what I’m going […]

Saucy Deal at Safeway!

Posted by Brooke on July 30, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

Not too long ago I bought a bunch of Classico at Target because it was on sale for $1.88 and I had a bunch of $1/2 coupons. Imagine my embarrassment when this week’s Safeway ad came out and with in ad coupon, jars were a mere $1.49 each! You might think I’d be out of […]

Target Totally Free!

Posted by Brooke on July 30, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

Today a hot $1 off Reach Dental Floss coupon hit the ‘net and I’ve been meaning to start flossing more (ok, ever.) The coupon blogs told me single packs of Reach floss were regularly priced at $.89 at Target and between that and my $5 gift card from kitty litter, it was the excuse I […]

$33.50 at Safeway for $10.66

Posted by Brooke on July 28, 2011 in Shopping trips

Once again, I blew it by letting Jared come shopping with me. Not only did he complain, but he also felt the need to buy four cans of vegetables that we not only didn’t have a coupon for, but were not on sale. It totally screwed up my percentage. With $8 in Catalinas, plus a […]

Fred Meyer for $1.32

Posted by Brooke on July 26, 2011 in Shopping trips

Despite every “special diet” person I know (read: vegan) telling me how fruitless couponing is or would be for them, I have found no shortage of deals on things like veggie meat and soy milk. Today I stopped by Fred Meyer on my way home I pick up a couple cartons of rice milk for […]

Savings vs. Addiction

Posted by Brooke on July 25, 2011 in Lessons

Yesterday I realized I may have a problem. We were in Troutdale to go to the outlets (scored a pair of my favorite Levis corduroys for $15!) and Jared wanted to go to Harbor Freight. On the way, we passed an Albertsons and I literally slammed on the brakes and turned into the lot to […]

Stocked Up – Target and Safeway 7-23-11

Posted by Brooke on July 24, 2011 in Shopping trips

It took three trips to different Targets, but I finally found the kitty litter deal I was after this week. Of course, they were out of all the other freebees I had coupons for (Bic pens and Bengay) but whatever. My cats will now poop in pleasure as I picked up 80lbs of Arm and […]

Coupon Lessons for Ben

Posted by Brooke on July 23, 2011 in Lessons, Shopping trips

With no job or aspirations, Ben Graham took an extra interest in my new couponing hobby. Well, first he talked a bunch of shit, and then he asked me to take him with me. Since Ben is helpless like a small child, I agreed and asked him what he wanted to buy. “I don’t know, […]

Worst Shopping Trip Ever

Posted by Brooke on July 18, 2011 in Shopping trips

On an especially rainy Sunday, I couldn’t think of much better to do than hit a couple stores to go couponing, plus after my super successful Albertson’s trip, I was feeling confident. But I made a few fatal mistakes. First of all, Sunday afternoon is probably the worst time ever to go the store. Not […]

Albertsons for 88 Cents!

Posted by Brooke on July 17, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

Last night Timbro threw down the gauntlet and challenged me to do a totally free shopping trip. While I’ve gotten plenty of items for free so far, I’m yet to walk out without paying anything because I have this pesky habit of buying things I actually need when I go shopping. Today though, I came […]
