Yeah, it’s been a while. Anyway…
I’ve recently gotten hit by the coupon bug, so I wanted to share today’s haul!
I hit up CVS and then K-Mart for a few specifics plus Double Coupons! There are no double coupons in Omaha normally, so when I found out, I had to get there ASAP. Unfortunately, you can only double 5 per day, so I had to make mine count– but I got lucky and all mine were $1.00 ones, aka an extra $5.00 off.

Ordinarily I would not have bought the vitamins, but I needed the B12 and C, and my local news station is running a collection for vitamins to send to Africa. I figured the savings on the vitamin D, plus the CVS Rewards savings were worth it to make the donation as well. I also wasn’t planning to buy the razors, but I am running low. I couldn’t resist the 1.37 per razor price since I usually pay about 7 bucks for a 5 pack.

All in all, I spent 60.75, and saved 87.88– just under 41% savings. Plus, I bought the Downy for my dad so I can take an extra 6 bucks off my total I was pretty happy with this since everything on here except the vitamins were either regular or restocking purchases. Luckily, lotion is one of the few things I’m not super brand loyal on so I just took the sale ones– it really makes this easier. The costs really add up for those granola bars, applesauce, and fruit snacks when you go through them as fast as I do– but I have to have them! I was also excited to get the Pop Chips free.
I’ll have to give you a look next time I do a big grocery trip– I’ve been at 50% or more on those.
Who knows if I’ll keep up the blogging, but I expect it will be a lot more random than just a cooking blog– especially since my awesome camera broke and my new one somehow doesn’t focus.
So see you soon, maybe?!
Tell me: Do you coupon at all?
