**Next Weeks CVS , Walgreens , and Rite Aid deals and scenarios are up**

I made it to one real brick and motar store this week.  I can’t count how many online stores I visited, but I am now done with most of our Christmas shopping without leaving the house!  I would list out our online savings but then everyone in my family would know what they are getting…

Our one trip out:
Total before coupons and sales: $126.64
Total Spent: $43.98
Total Saved: $82.66 or 65.3%

On another a side note, I did make it to Office depot this week and found my dream coupon binder.  I have been using a normal 3 ring binder and kept having issues with the coupons falling out.  This is a zippered binder but the best part:

  • Has a handle and Carry Strap (the strap is removable)
  • It is not only a binder but also has a 4 pocket accordion file section

I was about to give up on my binder because I will get a chance to cut coupons but not get them into the binder.  Now I can live the life of both types of coupon organization all in one. I think I could be a sales person for whoever makes this thing!  It also came with a pencil bag and other little pockets all over the place but the 2 things above are what makes the most excited.
**Update:  I was asked to link to the binder, Office Depot doesn’t have it on their site but this Case-it Large Capacity Zipper Binder is very similar (and cheaper… guess I should know better).**
