Great Sales

brooke Thursday, January 29th, 2009

I sometimes just get in the mood to shop around online to see what I can find.  I decided to start at CouponBuzz.com and saw that The Gap was having a 50% off sale, so I followed the link.  I ended up buying a bunch of clothes for my kids and was excited about how little it cost me.  If I find something I like I’ll often get bigger sizes for the next year, since the clothes on sale are usually those from the season that’s ending.  That’s also a good idea if you find something you want and they don’t have the right size, but do have the next size up.  When I’ve found a basic, like a turtleneck or onesie I like, I’ll buy a couple…the correct size and a bigger size.

Every once in a while I’ll go through my coupon envelopes and I found some that were about to expire.  They were for items I was ready to run out of.  I used them when I went to the store and saved $16, in addition to the $15 I saved from store ads. I was pretty proud of myself.

Saving with coupons and grocery ads

brooke Saturday, December 13th, 2008

I printed up the list of ads combined with coupons for the store I was going to from the Grocery Game site my friend told me about and figured out which coupons I had that would help me get the best deals when combined with the ads. I couldn’t wait to go save some money. I took my shopping list clipped to my coupons and dove in.  Between sales and coupons, I saved a whopping $45.00.  It took a little longer than it usually does at the store, but that might have something to do with taking a toddler with me.  It may end up being worth the bit of time it takes to coordinate my coupons and list.
