In my last post Couponing for the Small Family, I wrote about how couponing works for our family of two. In this post, I’ll share what my couponing actually looked like this week.
I typically do my couponing on either Monday or Tuesday, since that makes it more likely that stores will still have the items I need in stock. This week my energy was a bit better than usual, so I went to multiple stores. There are some weeks when I only make it to Target, and I have come to accept that.
Glade Plugins Scented Oil Warmer, Original Price: $1.49
Final Price: FREE
How I did it: I used a $0.50 off printable coupon. In the store, I paid $0.99. When I got home, I uploaded my receipt to the Ibotta app, which gave me a $1.00 rebate. In the end, that made this product completely free.
Hefty Slider Bags, Original Price: $1.99 each
Final Price: $0.99 each
How I did it: I used a 25% off promotion from the Cartwheel app. This saved $0.50 off of each box of slider bags. I then used a printable coupon for $1.00 off when you bought two boxes of slider bags. The final price was 99 cents for each box.
Campbell’s Chunky Soup, Sale Price: $1.66 each
Prego Pasta Sauce, Original Price: $1.97 each
How I did it: This deal was a bit more complicated. When you bought 10 Campbell’s Chunky Soups or Prego Pasta Sauces, you received a $5.00 Target gift card. You could use any combination of these products to reach the total of 10.
I chose to get 6 of the Campbell’s Chunky Soups. I used two printable coupons. Each of these were for $1 off of 3 cans of soup. To round out my 10 items, I selected 4 Prego Pasta Sauces. I had a newspaper coupon for 40 cents off of 2 Prego Pasta Sauces. I found this deal on The Krazy Coupon Lady. They suggested using 2 of the newspaper coupons, but I only get one newspaper. My final price reflects that difference.
Final Price: $1.04 per item (this factors in the value of the $5.00 gift card)
Charmin Double Plus or Mega Plus Toilet Paper (Okay, officially the manufacturers call it “Bath Tissue.” But who says bath tissue in real life? Toilet paper is toilet paper, my friends.), Sale Price: $13.99 for a 12 pack, $41.97 for 3 packs
Target was running a promotion this week where you could get a free $10.00 Target gift card when you buy any 3 Charmin products. I also used 3 printable coupons for $1.00 off, one for each of the packs.
Ibotta had a rebate for $2.00 off a Charmin Ultra Soft 12 pack, as well as for $2.00 off a Charmin Ultra Strong 12 pack. One of the downsides of Ibotta is that you can usually only use a rebate on one item. That’s why I only had Ibotta rebates for 2 of my 3 packs of toilet paper. The rebates will reset, but that takes 3 to 4 days and by then the good deal is usually gone.
SavingStar is a new coupon app I just learned about this week. It had a deal for a $5.00 rebate when you spend $30.00 on Charmin Ultra Strong or Ultra Soft Mega Roll toilet paper.
Final Price: $6.66 per 12 pack
As a final note, these rolls are massive. If they were any bigger, they wouldn’t fit in a standard toilet paper holder. I haven’t found a good way to compare prices on toilet paper that takes into account these differences between various roll sizes.
That was it for Target this week. As you can tell, I’m focusing on stocking up on household goods and easy to prepare foods for after the baby comes.
I’ll be honest: Walgreens is my least favorite place to coupon. The first 30 seconds of this video basically sum up my feelings on the matter:
Actually…the whole thing sums up my frustration with Walgreens. If I try to do too much bargain hunting there, I tend to want to give up on the whole business and buy everything at Aldi. However, this week they sucked me in with a good deal on pads.
Poise Thin Shape Pads, Original Price: $6.29
Final Price: $2.29
How I did it: Walgreens puts out monthly coupon booklets in their stores. These are considered store coupons, not manufacturer coupons. At most other stores, you can stack a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon without any difficulty. At Walgreens, you can still use both…BUT they have a nifty little policy where you cannot have more coupons than items in your transaction. That’s why I also purchased a bag of M&Ms. They were on sale for $0.59, so they were my “filler item.”
As you can tell from my last post, I don’t like buying things that I don’t need. I’ll be saving the M&Ms for my husband’s Valentine’s Day chocolate. That keeps it from being a complete waste, right?
The Walmart in my area tends to scare me, but this week I decided to be brave. As I stopped to peruse the varieties of Pillsbury biscuits, I moved my cart as close to the side of the aisle as possible. This was in an effort to be out of the way. However, I soon discovered that my best efforts were not good enough, as my cart was suddenly hit and began rolling away from me. I had been leaning on the cart (bad idea) and stumbled when my support was removed. My can of biscuits began to fly from my hands as I fell. Fortunately, I was able to regain control of both my biscuits and my body without falling completely to the ground.
A bit bewildered, I looked around to see what caused this incident. A rather aggressive woman with a British accent muttered “Sorry!” and continued to push her cart towards the potato chips at a breakneck speed.
And this is why I don’t like to go to Walmart without my husband. Moving on to my coupons…
Pillsbury Grands, Original Price: $1.47 each
Final Price: $0.97 each
How I did it: While I’m in the process of getting on the Trim Healthy Mama bandwagon, my husband loves his carbs. He especially loves these fluffy biscuits, so I try to coupon them when I can. I used a printable coupon for $1.00 off any 2 Pillsbury refrigerated baked goods.
Bananas, Original Price: $0.49 per pound, the bunch I selected was actually $0.20
Final Price: FREE!
How I did it: MobiSave is another great coupon app. It’s more straightforward to use than Ibotta, which can be overwhelming. This week, they had a rebate for $0.30 when you bought any bunch of bananas. Since mine cost $0.20, the extra $0.10 is just bonus money. MobiSave also sends your rebate directly to your PayPal account: no need to wait until you’ve met a minimum balance in your account.
Dawn Simply Clean Dishwashing Liquid, Original Price: $0.97
Final Price: $0.67
How I did it: This one was pretty straightforward. I used a printable coupon for $0.30 off.
Truvia Natural Sweetener, 40 ct. packets, Original Price: $3.46
Final Price: $0.96
How I did it: Again, pretty simple. All I used was a printable coupon for $1.50 off a Truvia product. Truvia actually does work with the Trim Healthy Mama plan, which is an added bonus. I also uploaded my receipt to the Checkout 51 app and received a $1.00 rebate.
Yardley Bar Soap, Original Price: $0.97 each
Final Price: $0.72 each
How I did it: For some reason, there are always an abundance of coupons available for body wash, but barely any for bar soap. I am a bar soap girl, so I decided to snatch up some while I had a newspaper coupon.
Clean and Clear Face Wash, Original Price: $3.97
Final Price: $2.97
How I did it: Nothing too impressive here, just a newspaper coupon for $1.00 off.
Oikos 000 Yogurt, Original Price: $1.00 each
Final Price: $0.67 each
How I did it: Oikos 000 yogurt is Trim Healthy Mama approved, so finding a coupon for it was exciting. This was a printable coupon for $1.00 off of 3 of the individual size yogurt cups.
