Shopping

It's funny because I used to hate shopping. But now that I am into the whole couponing thing, it is so exciting. I have restrained myself from putting all my shopping experiences on here, but I wanted to share this one.

The kids and I went to CVS yesterday. I picked up a toothbrush, toothpaste, and two boxes of cereal. My bill came to $18 since it was expensive toothbrush. After coupons I used 7 of my extra care bucks and didn't have to pay anything out of pocket. The cashier takes the receipt and looks at it weird and says, "huh, you just got back 7 extra care bucks." So basically I didn't pay a thing for my stuff. Yeah CVS!! I have had many shopping trips like this one, but it was just funny how the cashier reacted. You probably had to be there to appreciate it though.

Here are a few tips.
1. Roll your ECB's (only buy things that will generate more ECB's)
2. There are monthly and weekly deals. Most of the monthly items can be purchased up to 5 times. http://forums.slickdeals.net
3. You can check the deals and make your list at CVS.com
4. Helpful sites. http://www.moneysavingmom.com/
