My money saving adventure!!

Ok! So, Kyle and I are well into our new budget, which includes using coupons! I wanted to tell you all about the fantastic deals I was able to find yesterday!


Diapers: The add this week has Huggies Diapers/Pull-ups for $8.99 each. (Jumbo pack) Buy three, and you get $5 in Register Rewards. (Basically cash you can use on your next purchase.) I found three $2.00 off coupons from my favorite blog sites (will post at the end of this) making each package $6.99. This is an awesome deal - as huggies diapers at Walgreens are usually about 12 bucks! So - I was able to purchase each package for $6.99 - and received 5 bucks in Register Rewards.

Toothpaste: Colgate toothpaste is on sale at Walgreens for $2.99. I printed a $.75coupon - to get this for a little over 2 bucks. I received a $2 register reward at checkout for this one!

So - my total was under 25 dollars after tax. I received 7 bucks in Register Rewards and proceeded to buy 2 1/2 gallons of milk and two boxes of nabisco cookies! (I had a buy one get one free cookie coupon as well!) So after all was said and done I purchased:

2 jumbo pkgs of Huggies Diapers
1 pkg of Huggies Pull-ups
1 big pkg of toothpaste
2 1/2 gallons of milk
2 boxes of nabisco cookies (oreo's and chocolate chip soft chew)

All for under 30 dollars!!! One big box of diapers normally puts me back about 20 bucks - but I am stocked up for the entire month! A big THANKS to www.myfrugaladventures.com and www.gooddealsandmore.blogspot.com - for helping me! They have links on their site - that can help you too!

If you know of any great deals this week - let me know! I would love to share them with other Good Life viewers!
