It is only Tuesday and I feel like I have already racked up on the deals this week. I must admit, I am becoming a little addicted and obsessed with deals, coupons and freebies. It is just so satisfying to get a deal!!!
This morning I met a friend for breakfast and had to run few errands. I ran over to Carter's b/c my best friend gave Tegan a Carter's gift card for his bday. He also got several pairs of the exact same Carter's jeans. So I decided to take one back and get him some dress pants. I had put in my mind that the gift card (which was for $25) would buy him two sets of winter time pajamas which he really really needed. Well when I went in to the Carter's outlet they were having a sale. The p.j.'s were all 50% & 60% off. So I picked him up 3 sets of p.j.'s for $8.20 each. Then they had some jogging pants and tops for 60% off so I got him one of those sets for $13.40. Well the lady at the register offered me a 20% off my entire purchase coupon if I spent $40. Since I was exchanging the pants somehow the amount of the new pants which were the exact same as the jeans still counted toward the $40 I had to spend. So once I used my gift card and the 20% off coupon I ended up walking out of there with a pair of dress pants, hooded sweat shirt, sweat pants, and three sets of pajamas for $3 out of pocket!!! I was super excited!!! Between Tegan's birthday clothes he got and this, he is pretty much taken care of in the clothes department for right now.
Then I had to run to Walmart to get Tegan's allergy medicine. Which I have to say that if your kid needs allergy medicine like claritin every day, the walmart brand is half the price and works WONDERFUL!!! But the point is that I made a quick trip down the clearance aisle and found two throw pillows that perfectly match my couch that were marked down from $10 to $2 EACH!!! I couldn't pass that up. I can't even make them for that cheap. So I am super excited about those too!!!
Yesterday I made an Ingles run with just a few coupons and advantage card deals in mind. Had I not had to get milk, bread and orange juice, I would have gotten out of there super cheap. Just an idea of a few things I got:
Special K cereal (me and Rylee love this stuff) is usually $4 or more a box. They were 2 for $5 this week at Ingles (but BOGO at publix...wish I lived closer to one) and I had a coupon for $1 off two boxes. So I got two boxes of Cereal for the price of one.
Their Cheetos are on sale for $1.88 a bag. There was a coupon hanging above them at the grocery store for $0.40 off. Since they doubled that coupon, I got the Cheetos for $0.88!!! The good kind...not the cheapy kind!!!
The best purchase of the day was some country crock butter. It is BOGO this week at Ingles which makes it two for $1.66 or $0.83 each. So I only got one and had a $0.40 off coupon which they then doubled and I got it for $0.03!!!!! Awesome!
I will now be going to a therapist for this new obsession! Thanks for humoring me:) Tell me if you are bored with this????
