Every time I think about couponing I feel, that it takes so much time! So this week I decided to check how much time exactly I will spend to find the deals, cut/print coupons, and put it all together. 1 hour 15 minutes! Honestly, I was surprised. I thought it takes much more time. Off course I don’t count the time spent in stores, because if I will go to buy something without coupons I will spend the same amount of time, or maybe even more if I won’t have a list.
What did I get this week?
– Irish Spring Body Wash 3 in 1 (15 fl.oz/443 ml) $4.99

BUILDING STOCKPILE FOR FREE. CHALLENGE. WEEK 7.
How did I do it?
Colgate Toothpaste was on sale in CVS for $3.39. I used two coupons $1.00 off from coupon.com and got 2.50 in ECB back for each.
Crest Toothpaste was $3.00 in CVS. $1.00 off coupons from coupon.com and 2.00 ECB back for each.
Irish Spring Body Wash 3 in 1 was $3.99 also in CVS. I used $1.50 off any soup/body wash CVS coupon. $1.00 off coupon from coupon.com and got 2.00 in ECB back.
Glade Wax Melt Warmer was on sale for $9.00. I used $3.00 off coupon from Smart Source (2/7/16), got $3.00 back in ECB, and $3.00 back from Ibotta. I’m so happy to try one more item of this kind for free!
For Gold Emblem Abound Popcorn I got coupon for $1.00 off any Gold Emblem Abound food or snack item from coupon.com. Last time I got this popcorn children really liked it.
Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Single was 40% off in Rite Aid. And I used coupon 0.75 off Wet n Wild Eye Product from Smart Source (3/13/16). By the way if you don’t know in Rite Aid they can’t apply coupon for more then the cost of the item. But they can adjust the value of coupon so it will cover the price exactly.
Piece of Chocolate from See’s Candies I got just for being in a See’s Candies store. Did you know, that they always give free samples to try? And I just was going to ask if they have some vegan chocolate.
And Victoria’s Secret Panties I also got for free with coupon. I don’t advocate using credit cards, but I love my Victoria’s Secret credit card! Once in a while they send great coupons to their credit card holders. Usually it’s one coupon for free panties, one coupon for $10 off any bra, and one coupon for some item (like umbrella or beach towel for example) if you spend $75 or more. They also send $10 off any item Birthday coupon. Plus you get points for every purchase and when you have enough you get coupon for $10 off. Don’t take it wrong I don’t suggest you to get extra credit cards. Especially if you know, that you won’t pay them on time. I just like mine.
