My Neck O' The Woods - Couponing

It's Tuesday so I'm linkin up with those fab RHOK ladies for In Your Neck of the Woods.
Today is all about couponing.
Do you coupon? If not, you should.....unless you a bajillionaire and money is no object to you.
Still, why not save your money when you can?
Then you can buy more fun stuff that you WANT instead of what you NEED!!!!

This is my little haul from this morning.
I went to Walgreens and this is what I came out with.

I literally only spent $14.08 on this when I would have spent $27.26 plus tax!
(see below for proof)
I know it doesn't sound like a whole lot, but that's a 50% savings! If you could save half on every trip, think of all the money you'd save!

Example using today's trip:
Purex detergent: $5.99 and B0G0 (wish I had a coupon for that one)
Carefree pantyliners: on sale for $0.99 - Walgreens in ad coupon for $0.99 off = FREE!!!!
Huggies Little Swimmers: on sale for $6.99 - Walgreens coupon for $2.00 off + manufacture coupon for $1.00 off = $3.99!!!!!
Jello: Walgreens in ad coupon for up to 3 at $0.59 each!

See, I know it's only a couple of things, but it's stuff I needed and I essentially got it all for half off! I even made a trip to Homeland last weekend and saved almost 50%!

It's when you look at how much money you're saving that makes using coupons and watching the sale paper so worth it!

Great job! I do coupon -but, not to the extreme-it always feels nice to know that I saved some money even if a little bit. Once I even heard the actress Hilary Swank say she coupons -because it's literally like money just there for the taking :)

That is great! Way to go. I am a random couponer, or drive by couponer. I coupon faithfully for a month or two, then I get lazy or caught up doing something else. Then I let it slip, then I get shocked & outraged at the grocery store and pick back up again. ahh!

I do a lot of couponing but have had to slow down because I've run out of pantry room! blessings, marlene

I have always wanted to get started couponing, but I don't get the newspaper so I'm not really sure how to start.

Hi, my name is Milah and I use coupons. I'm so addicted, I'd rather take a bullet than pay full price.

50% savings is awesome! Congrats!

I have a stack of coupons that I forget to use. My new rule is to only collect coupons for something I know I'm going to buy in the next few days.
I love the places that have online coupons that I can print right before I go.

Woww, 50% off is a great saving. Sadly the only mags I buy are quilt ones and they don't have coupos for everyday grocery type things!

You know I LOVE the couponing! My husband has even gotten in to it. He's a huge help for my disorganized mind when we walk into Walgreen's. LOL!
