What can you buy for $20.00 or less?

Today I took advantage of the double coupon day at our local Kmart.  My bill prior to all my coupons was $74.00 and I paid out of my pocket after all my coupons, a mere $19.43, can’t beat that can ya!  I have instructed everyone in my family that I was going to make them each up a basket of products that they use but hate buying.  My family is not as ‘coupon savvy’ as myself, so I am going to put my coupon knowledge to good use.  We have a cat, so obviously all the cat food will be for our furry friend.  We have a dog too so all the doggie treats will satisfy him too.  The Twix, well, that will satisfy me, and I am sure I will need some pantiliners at some point!! 🙂  Then we have razors, nail polish and shampoo that will go towards the family gift baskets of goodies, and Resolve that will be used to clean our dirty carpet after the holidays.  So you see, it was all stuff that will get used by some member of my family and it cost less than $20.00.  This is what it is like when you are shopping on a budget.



What can you buy for less than $20.00 - this is what I got.

Excellent deals! I could have done better, but I was still very pleased with my transactions!

Oh what a deal

That was sung in my best “Oh what a night” voice. Yeah, so I went shopping this weekend! I had so much fun too doing it. I got a lot of deals and I wanted to share them with someone, so lets make that someone you!

First I went to Jewel to get The Dark Knight movie tickets. See, when you purchase 10 General Mills products you get a coupon code that allows you to get two free movie tickets. Well due to cashier error, I ended up with more codes than I was supposed to get. Faulty cash register I am assuming. In any event, I was supposed to get 6 free tickets and I ended up with 10. I gave one pair to my brother, so I had 4 codes good for 8 tickets. Still a good deal for me. With all my coupons and such I ended up spending about $10.00 for 32 products and 10 movie tickets. (10 bags of chex mix, 10 bags of cheerio mix, 10 boxes of yoplait yogurt-gogurt and 2 loaves of bread.)

Then on to CVS. I ended up getting 10 bottles of Sally Hansen nail polish for free. Ended up spending more there than I wanted to, but that is ok, it doesn’t happen that often. I thought I was going to get overage but that didn’t happen. I could return the b1g1 free lipsticks! LOL

Walgreens, buy one Loreal Vive get one free, used the coupon in today’s paper for B1G1 Loreal Vive for free shampoo! 🙂 YAY!!!

Better yet, I get home to enter in all my movie codes expecting to get 8 tickets to print out and instead I find out that there are no participating theaters in my area so I was given the option to search for another zip code or get a prepaid visa/debit card valued at $25.50…well, heck yeah, don’t have to ask me twice, I am snatching up that visa/debit card! I will have mailed to me $102.00 worth of Visa/Debit cards (in 7-10 days)! Not sure what they can and cannot be used for, but what ever it is, I’ll take it! 🙂

It was all in all a great shopping day for me.
