I Went Coupon Crazy...

Two blogs in one day!  But I couldn't resist!  I had way too much fun couponing today.  Here's how I did:

- I had another $10 off of a $10 purchase coupon for Aeropostale in my email yesterday!  Those crazy people just keep sending them!  As long as they are sending them, I'll take them ;)  SO, this time at Aeropostale I spent exactly $2.25.  I bought a shirt for an undisclosed individual (I'm buying Christmas early), and I bought myself a pair of underwear that was on clearance 70% off to put the total over $10.  (I saved $34.40 off of original prices!)

So, so far my total is $2.25 for the day.

- I had a couple dollars leftover on a JC Penny gift card so I went in there to see what I could find.  B almost got a plain sweatshirt but I didn't see the point much of a plain sweatshirt so I found yet another pair of underwear for myself, and a JCPenny reusable shopping bag.  (I'm collecting them to start 'going green.'  So far I haven't spent any money buying them.  I've got them all free.  My total at JCPenny was $1.10.  

That makes my total $3.35 at this point.

- Next I hit up Bath and Body Works.  This one was the most expensive transaction.  I had a coupon for a travel size signature item with any purchase.  I purchased a hand soap for our house (in the scent island nectar or something like that, it's wonderful and they only have it in soaps and antibacterial sanitizers... booo) and I bought a travel size shower gel that will go in a mother's day basket to a particular grandmother.  Total = $5.34. 

My spending has now reached $8.69.

-Now, this one is the most fun, and, believe it or not, it's Walgreens.  (It could have been better, too, had I printed one extra coupon... bleh.)  Anyway, here's what I got:

Transaction 1:
1 Kotex U product on sale for $3.49. 
I had a $1 manufacturers coupon and I received $2.50 in register rewards.  I paid $2.76 out of pocket. 

Transaction 2:
3 Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotions on sale for $2.24 each
With the purchase of any three Aveeno products you got an Aveeno travel kit for free (9.99 value)
I bought a bag of gummy worms for .39 because I needed a 'filler' item.
I used 3 $1.00 off Aveeno coupons and the $2.50 register rewards from transaction 1 and got all of this for just $2.16!  Woo Hoo!  (I saved $18.84 on this transaction alone!)

Transaction 3:
I actually just bought another Kotex U product exactly like Transaction 1.  I earned the $2.50 in register rewards and have a good idea at what I'm going to spend them on.  So I spent $2.76 again at Walgreens.
My total at Walgreens all together today was $7.68.  BUT, I still have $2.50 in register rewards so I'm going to substract that... which makes it $5.18.  That makes my daily total:

$13.87!!  And that covered one shirt, two pairs of underwear, a reusable bag, one hand soap, one body wash, three aveeno daily moisturizers, one aveeno travel kit, two kotex u products and a bag of gummy worms!  Woo hoo!  Stay tuned for more! 


  1. Alicia that is VERY IMPRESSIVE!! Way to go girl! I thought i'd tell you that you can print the $10 coupon off of Aeropostale's site as many times as you want up through the 25th of April :)

  2. Yep, she told me I could print the one in my email over and over again too ;) We'll see if I'm back that way ;)
