A friend of mine recently turned me onto Money Saving Mom.. an incredible website for us frugal types! My mom taught me way back when to save money when I can. I always go straight for the sale and clearance racks, wait for items to go on sale, always use coupons and thrift shop. The one thing I never really got into (because it seemed so danged confusing) was using coupons in correlation with other coupons and sales... Until now!
My very first experience with this trick was today. Did you know that if you have a CVS card, you can scan it at the price check thing and coupons print out!?!?! I know! I didn't know that either! But I tried it and it worked.
When I scanned my card I got like 6 coupons, but the one I was most interested was the coupon for $2 off Xtra Laundry Detergent. Because, Xtra Laundry Detergent was on sale with your CVS card for... you guessed it: $2!!!
So I paid 17cents (tax) for a bottle of laundry detergent that will do up to 28 loads. Can you say, what a deal (or steal)!?
Needless to say, I'm totally hooked. I will be searching out coupons and sales from now on. And there are several websites to help with this. Here are a few:
