On the Coupon High :-) Saved 75%!!!

If your feeling down and low about your frugal finds then I hope this brightens your day! I have not posted about my finds and deals in awhile becuase well, I just wasn't finding THAT many! Enough to ge us by on those things we NEEDED but not much. When your husband says, "Um, Hon wheres the tp? or soap?" You know you've gotten off the band wagon! The days when I had a few months supply stored up and could sell and give away some and STILL have enough for us! Yah....

Well today I did pretty good so I will tell you a bit about it! :-) And hopfully you will be encouraged again!


To start off, I had been hearing that CVS had Huggies diapers on clearanced for 75% off! So my darling husband said he would stop by on his way home from work the other night to see if one of the stores had any. Sure enough 4 packs!

Heres what he did:
CVS:
4 Huggies pks $17.99 - 75%off = $4.49 ea
=$17.96
-4x $3.00
=$6.44
Saved $65.40

Pretty awesome!

And heres what I did today!
CVS: (I also got a 20% off coupon that printed out of the machine!)
8 Aveneno Baby washes $5.69 -75% off = $1.42 ea
1 Off Clip = $4.19 -$1.00 instant off - $3.00 cvs coupon = .19
