    Went to CVS yesterday. Coupon center printed me a 5.00 off an order of 25.00 or more. I was able to use that BUT, the register printed me another one on my receipt! Score! I have found that while my local HT will not take the ones I get in my email anymore, they WILL take these if they are printed out in the store. Yeah!

    tldaids - I'm sorry you had one of "those" trips. You definately saved ALOT however and I'm impressed whenever anyone can save nearly $100 at WM!! I hate when I have trips where I miss something! Sometimes I try to plan so well and then wonder what in the world happened?!?! We are learning, though, just like you said and each time will get better! It does help me to know I'm not the only one who has these experiences and I hope you feel some consolation knowing you're not alone! Someday we'll grow up to be just like Faye or Nancy or the other pros!! :))

    just got back from walmart and found a peelie for a $1 off 12pk & 24pk of pepsi products. a save now type coupon. Sweet! Was not on my game tonight though and my M&Ms rung up at $3.97 instead of $2.50 and I didn't catch that so I paid double what I should have even after the coupon X 5 = $15 instead of $7.50. Arrghh! Then 3 curad coupons and 3 ivory soap coupons wouldn't scan for some reason. cashier said it was because I had too many 'like' coupons but the ivory coupon had no limitation on it and the curad did say limit of 4 like items but I only got 4 of them so why did it fail? I did buy some other brand of bandages, is that why it failed to scan them? So confused today. Anyhow, subttl was $206 and after coupons and with no sales it came down to $134 before taxes and I still have two $2 rebates to send off for so that's another $4 in savings. Can't help but wish I hadn't screwed up on the others though. *still learning*

    At the Kangaroo gas station on Business 70 between Clayton and Garner, an employee was handing out reusable coffee cups containing a coupon for free coffee. After that I think the coffee in 99 cents when you use the cup. I love "free" and love coupons but my favorite part of this was how sweet the attendant was. she was so happy to give me the cup and told me how much she loves working there! And this was in the 100 degree heat!

    iwannasave - you know, every time I see a Great Clips coupon I'll think of you two :) Just like every time I see certain coupons I think of certain swap members.

    Now, if only I had such good recall on where I put this or that around the house I'd be golden LOL

    @eje1015-No problem. I don't have kids yet, so glad to keep an eye out for our fellow couponers.

  • iwannasave0703 Jul 20, 2011

    @Nancy-I have taught him well...And you should have seen him after the hair cut. Next time, I will totally be prepared with a coupon. We should be on the look out for those now. :)

    You got it nhouseecu - a coupon every step of the day LOL Really keeps with the theme of saving money, even while you enjoy a treat :)

    Unfortunately, last night, dear iwannasave's hubby asked us for a Great Clips coupon and we didn't have any :( Major fail!

  • nhouseecu09 Jul 20, 2011

    LOL Nancy! That could work! Me and a friend used ours after a couponing trip to HT! Nothing like finishing off a couponing trip with a frape ! LOL
