You may have noticed, but I’m a bit passionate about saving money.  I hear all the excuses as to why people don’t coupon or even shop sales, but honestly there is no good reason.  I’m probably preaching to the choir…

This week I made three stops for deals, one of which was a rare trip to Walmart just to coupon.  I can’t tell you the last time I couponed there, we mostly stick to grocery stores for our big trips (nothing is really on sale at Walmart so deal wise you’ll save more in a grocery store).  I’m going to leave you in suspense on Walmart until tomorrow.  I will tell you that I challenged myself to see how much I could get for $15.  Tune in tomorrow to see everything we got.

My other two trips were to CVS and Bi-Lo.  CVS was super fast:

(2) L’Oreal Advanced Hair Care, $4 ea.
(2) $2 off L’Oreal Hair Care printable
-$4 ECB
Total Due: nothing
Got Back: $4 ECB

It took 2 minutes to run in and walking out paying nothing makes it 2 well spent minutes.  Next week there is even more free L’Oreal Hair Care, so I’ll use this ECB from today to pay for that!

My big trip was to Bi-Lo.  I crammed the buggy full and had a coupon for everything except the milk.  Trips like this take about 45 minutes to plan and cut coupons for.  In the end saving $140 made it worth every minute!

Bi-Lo Totals:

Purchase Value: $207.19
Total Spent: $65.47
Total Saved: $141.72 or 68%

I also earned 80¢ in Fuelperks which is equal to $16 off my next gas fill up.  There are some crazy good deals this week at Bi-Lo, if you are near one it’s completely worth heading in!  My favorites:

Gain Detergent for $1
Charmin Toilet Paper, 12 rolls, $3
Free Hamburger Helper
Free Suddenly Salad
Free Rice
Free Zatarains Rice Mix
Clorox for 40¢ a bottle
