Getting Back Into Savings! :-)

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I have posted. It seems like the last 2 weeks have been such a whirlwind of activity, mostly stuff you wish you didn't have to do! Unfortunately, while I enjoy my couponing, life goes on and we must deal with it!

So, I will post things a little backwards this week. I'll post Sunday's savings later. Today, I will post what I saved this morning. I went to Rite-Aid, Target and Food Lion for these savings. It just goes to show that you can save money without having double-coupons, for those who use that as an excuse! :-)

Here's a pic:

For those who might be doing a double take, yes those are pillows included in my picture! I even had a coupon for that! :-)

So, how much do you think I paid for all this? Here's a list of what all I have here:

2 Room Essentials Pillows
2 Up & Up Pantiliners (yep, I bought those also!)
2 10-Pack Papermate Pens
2 2-Pack Sharpie Markers

Food Lion:

6 Marcal Small Steps Paper Towels


1 Gallon of Milk
2 Airwick Odor Scent Starter Kits
1 Noxzema 6 ct. Razors

The total before coupons was $33.68. 

My total after coupons? That would be $4.18. That's a savings of 87.5%. Not bad for not having any double coupons! Just to give you an idea of how that happened here's a breakdown of it all.
