    Went on my first "adventure" today! Got super cheep floss, tide, dawn, a battery toothbrush (I think, I have to figure out Rite-Aid's rebate, I saw somewhere you should only do it once a month?), so for a few min after work and my first time I was pretty excited! I was a little surprised at the fine-tooth comb that the cashier at target used with each and every coupon, I had to be ready to refute and explain the validity of each and every one! And then they wouldn't accept the cascade one I had :( the manager wasn't any help either, even though it didn't have a size restriction, nor did it say anything about excluding trial size, they wouldn't take it. Oh well, I was still proud of my shop! And hopefully someone else will let me get my .09 cascade!

    ncsualum - you're going to love it, that's a promise :)

    I'm just excited for you - the thrill of that first big savings is going to have your feet doing the happy dance LOL It's such a rush!

    4trailhorses - WalMart is NOT very coupon friendly and quite honestly they don't train staff at all - seems even management in the stores makes it up as they go along.

    Here is where you can print out and take THEIR policy into the store when you shop in case they decide to 'revise' it on the fly :(


    With Wally World, it's always best to be well prepared, carry the policy with you and let them learn from you ;)

    "I really is wonderful. She was so excited today, her first stop was riteaid and she had to tell me about all the deals she got. She is on a roll now! I am so proud of her! I think I have made her a Riteaid fan too!" - watchhillgirl

    It is exciting, especially when you're paying the bills :) A perfect time to teach is when they have to budget LOL

    pss3, nope, my coupons didn't have the Skinny Cow ones either, but the free inserts on Wed that my daughter got did - isn't that strange?

    Thanks again all for the b'day wishes :)

    I thought I had found a great deal. Shick razors, 12 plus 3 extra. 15 razors. Had $3 off 2pack cost of a pack $4.97 Walmart. Had BOGO on them. Got to register and the clerk went got Assit Manager and CSN who said no.. they didnt do this. Was double couponing. This is all coming about due to people taking the stuff they are getting to the local free market and selling it.I ask to see Walmarts coupon policy and got told they didnt give it out.

    Awesome coupons today! Unfortunately, the skinny cow and small steps coupons were not in my paper today. Anyone in Clayton get them? I did get the correct inserts but those two coupons were missing.

    Nancy-Happy Birthday and I hate when cops "hide" to catch people speeding. I just feel like there is something better they can do for the community but I don't know the area so I can't say if there is a real safety issue or a money making issue:) Glad you didn't get your ticket!

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome Nancy and Faye! I think you are right Nancy, I think I'll take it one store at a time for now, trying to find the absolute best deal with each coupon is a lot all at once :)

    Small Step's single roll papertowel is on sale 5 for $5 at FoodLion, we had $1 off coupons earlier in July that exp today & new ones included in today's insert. I picked up 12 for .81 cents. WOOO HOOO.
