For Real- My Saving Adventure

I was able to get 2 Colgate toothpastes for only 85 cents. Can you believe that? I have been reading the couponmom.com and have been studying the system for a couple of weeks now. I tell you, it's for real. I tried it last Friday when I shopped at CVS and Walgreens. I checked their circulars or ads for their weekly deals, and also checked the SMARTSOURCE, REDPLUM, and P&G for coupons. At CVS, they had a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE for COLGATE TOOTHPASTE. I also happened to have a coupon for Colgate for $1.50 off. I got to know about the coupon when I logged on to couponmom.com and joined the forum. There is a topic there mainly for grocery coupons. I printed the coupon out of the Colgate website. Another way to know if there is a coupon for an item you want is to check the Grocery Coupon Database of the site. Items with coupons will be enumerated for you. Very convenient! Anyway, here's how the transaction went.

1 COLGATE Total Whitening - $2.19
1 COLGATE Total Whitening - FREE

1 COUPON $1.50 -

KS 7.525%TAX .16

TOTAL $0 .85

At Walgreens, there was a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE promo for Nestle Coffeemate Creamer, Glade Spray and Carnation Milk were on sale for 99 cents. I got 2 of each. Total purchase for the 6 items without the coupons amounted to $12.05. I had Walgreens coupons worth $5.11, and manufacturer coupons for $2.00. All in all, I only paid $4.94, tax included. I saved $7.11 from the coupons I had. Gee! Wish I had known this system before. The couponmom system is so interesting. I am still learning though. For sure, I will keep you updated about my saving adventure. Just keep on visiting friends. Yohooo!

If one month you can save $7, then you save $7X12=$84, this is just few items. you buy more, you save even more.
This is good tips from you, thanks.
Have a nice weekend.
