Coupon Success!!

I am on a high!

I've had some great shopping trips with my coupons lately but nothing this wonderful.

I went to Target this morning to get a few things that I had coupons for, along with some diapers and wipes (that I also had coupons for). I knew I had some great deals on my hands, but I was not prepared for the total at the register.
Long story short,I was able to get away with $50.13 worth of Nivea Lotions (including a $10 bottle of Goodbye Cellulite), Suave body washes, wipes, and diapers all for $16.88 (before tax, $20.39 after tax)!!! I did a little adding as I went and expected to get away around $30, but I couldn't believe the total when I checked out! I was so excited! I have checked and rechecked my receipt to make sure they did it right, and it seems to be correct. That means that I basically got everything but the diapers (which were $19.79 themselves) for free with a few dollars off of those as well.
Avery was a cranky mess so I had to leave after just getting those few items, but that just means that I get to have another fun couponing excursion tomorrow to finish my pack of coupons I have sorted out :). Hopefully it will be just as rewarding!
This all goes to show you that if you are willing to clip and take the time to match the manufacturers coupons to the store coupons and sales, you can find some great stuff for free!

This extreme couponing is so addicting!

P.S. Did you know that Dollar Stores take manufacturer coupons?! This sounds bad, but I have never really shopped at a dollar store before (with the exception of a random item here and there that I may run in and get if I was in a hurry). I had no idea that they carried name-brand stuff! Anyways, I went there the other day to check it out since I got a pack of coupons to Family Dollar. I was able to stack my Family Dollar coupons with some manufacturer coupons and left with over $100 worth of cleaning supplies and toiletries and food for about $70.

It really is a great feeling to save so much money!

Also, if you are reading this and want to give me your coupons, I would love to have them! :)
