I needed to go more couponing last night so I went with my kids. They are quickly learning that mommy almost always only puts things in the cart that she has coupons for. Every now and then of course I have to buy something I wasn't thinking in advance about. That's when I'll pull out my smartphone and see if I can find coupons through an app that can be loaded onto my store card. Then when they scan my store card, it automatically comes off.
I bought 5 Snuggles fabric softeners, 1 relish, 19 Palmolive dish soaps, 1 Pampers wipes, 5 Kool-Aid mixes, and a tupperware set I desperately needed. Should have cost $100 but only cost me $19! That's an 80% savings so I'm happy with it. I think I should have done better but I needed this stuff and didn't want to wait longer.
