How Much Have I Saved This Year?

Are you wondering how much I have saved this year with using coupons? I know I was curious. So I added everything up and my year to date total spent is $616.37 and have SAVED $697.21!! That's 53% saved! This includes all groceries, birthday presents, diapers, and personal care items. (It sadly doesn't include bills.)

$15 Olay Rebate

If you purchased any 3 Olay products yesturday (2/12) or in the near future fill out this rebate form and get $15 back! I'm so excited about it that I was seriously dancing around the house because I'll be making money off of it.
Here's the scenario I used from Target:
Buy 2 Venus Embrace razors $6.99 (Sale ends today 2/13)
Buy 3 Olay body washes $5.49 (On sale) (Your Target maybe doing the $5 GC when you purchase 3 of the Olay Total Effects body washes, but mine wasn't. You will make more if they are!)
= $30.45
Use (2) $2.00 off Venus Embrace razors from 2/7 PG
Use (2) Buy one Venus Embrace razor get one FREE Olay body wash
Use $1/1 Olay body wash coupon from 1/17PG (For the one you're not getting free)
= $14.47 OOP
Then you'll receive a $5 GC for purchasing the 2 Venus Embrace razors
Then submit for the $15 Olay rebate
= $5.53 Money Maker for all 5 products!!
There are many more scenarios you could possibly do. Go here to see more.
Thanks, CouponingtoDisney for the heads up on the rebate!

Shopping Trips 2/12

So I went shopping again today to stock up on some items we needed along with a few groceries. I first went to Walgreens to take advantage of the Friends & Family Discount. I spent a total of $15.48 OOP and saved $78.80!! Here's what I bought at Walgreens: (I had 6 seperate transactions)
(4) Boogie Wipes 2/$6 Used $2 off coupon on each
(4) Kotex 18count Tampons $1.50/2 coupon
(3) Dove Men+Care Body Wash, received $6 RR for each
(2) Wet Ones 2/$4 Used $1.50 off one coupon (No longer available)
Fruity Pebbles Cereal $1.99
Life Cereal $1.99
(2) Pull Ups Used $2 off coupon
(3) 3 Musketeers, received $1 RR
(6) Valentine Pencils (These were my fillers)
(4) Bumble Bee Tuna .99 each with in add coupon and $1/2 manufacture coupon
(2) Water color paint sets
The next place I went to was Target. I ended up spending $14.52 OOP and saved $44.78. Here's what I bought:
(2) Venus Embrace razors $6.99 each, used $2 off coupons 2/7PG, received $5GC
(2) Gillette Fusion razors $6.99 each, used $4 off coupons 2/7PG, received $5GC
(2) Olay Total Effects Body Wash $5.49, used BO Embrace razor GO Olay Body Wash Free 2/7PG
(2) Hefty Storage bags 17ct $1, used $1/2 coupon from 1/31RP

And the last place I went to was Valli Produce. I spent $35.55 and only saved $0.79. I don't really think it's a best place to use coupons but you can't beat the selection of produce and the deli prices! I normally try to by produce that's the best price and stock up a bit and freeze it. Here's what was purchased:
5lbs Corned Beef
10lb bag of potatoes
2lbs Sliced Black Forest Ham from the deli
(4) Jars of Apple Sauce
(2) 32oz cans of Enchilada Sauce
(2) boxes of Ronzoni elbow noodles
3lbs yellow onions
2.6lbs Celery
2.76lbs Red Peppers
Hellmann's Mayo $3.49 used $0.75 off coupon
The total I spent OOP at all the stores comes to a total of $65.55 and saved $124.37! Plus I still have a $5 GC from Target to use next time we go. I hope this inspires some people to go out and use some coupons.

Target & Walgreens Shopping 2/9

Ok, I believe I got a good deal when I went to Target but not that much when I went to Walgreens. At Target I spent $15.24 +tax and saved $39.54 (72%). Walgreens came to a total of $15.74 and saved $16.71 (51%). The total I spent OOP was $30.98 +tax (64%savings) and have left $4 RR from Walgreens. So minus the $4 RR I really only spent $26.98 total. If you want to include tax it was a total of $37.04! Tax in Illinois is RIDICULOUS! I think that's why I didn't do such a good job. At least I got some diapers and pull ups for our son and hopefully next time I'll be able to get some things for FREE!!! If my math is off please let me know. Haha. I'm not a math whiz nor do I claim to be.
