WFMW - Shopping Online

My advice for shopping online is shop sites like www. and SAHM shoppes before going to the mass department stores. Many times you can get one-of-a-kind items for less then you can even find in the stores. The small county I live in has a new slogan I just LOVE - "Think Monroe County First" - or Shop locally. In this case, support someone directly not a giant corporation. (I must advertise my own shoppe as I'm a SAHM too - - you know you need hair bows to match those back-to-school clothes!)

CVS 7/14

CVS had a bunch of items 90% off! Wish I would have grabbed a few more things while I was there, but having a 3 year old makes shopping a little more difficult when you are wanting to brows. Also - I used up all my ECB's my last trip 2 weeks ago on necessities since they were about the expire so I didn't have any to roll this go around.

Lipsmackers: $.49

"Grandma" gift set: $.69

CVS Electrolyte strips: $.49

Chocolate Bunny: $.49

Mints: $.19

Gillette Razor: $7.99
-$4.00 coupon

CUTE - freebie!

So I didn't get to do my couponing like I hoped for yesterday, because of a huge storm that hit the STL area hard while we were out and about. We did make it over to World Market for the FREE reusable shopping bags they were giving away (first come first serve kind of deal). I just LOVE these bags! They are very stylish! At checkout we also got a flyer explaining that you can enter your own design for their next free reusable tote bag giveaway (which the flyer said would be in February!). If your design is chosen you win $1,000 and 25 free bags with your design! So if you are creatively inclined, enter your design! Who couldn't use $1,000? Visit this site for all the details:

CVS - July 1st

Today's trip to CVS was the first in a month again. My Bucks were going to expire AGAIN and I have been so busy, couponing today just didn't happen. So I did the next best thing, buy the staples: toilet paper and 2 gallons of milk. Total OOP: $1.01 No more bucks to roll, but I can build them back up again.
