save-a-dime: What I saved with coupon since June 2011

I saved $1,999.51 from 6-11 until 12-11. And to me that is worth clipping, printing and sorting coupons.
 Since I have been under the weather, I didn't shop much in Dec. My hubby was kind enough to make a run to CVS this morning, so this is our first official coupon saving for Jan. 2012.

Transaction one:  Nivea a 'kiss of moisture' is 2/5.00 this week in the ad.  You can earn $5.00 in extra care bucks if you buy $10.00 of Nivea products, and in this Sundays paper there is a coupon for $3.00
off 2 . I always buy 4 papers. So I sent the hubby with the 2 coupons and his CVS card to pick these up. Here how you make money on a deal. $10.00 for the 4 lip moisture sticks they take off $6.00 for the coupons and hubby pays them $4.00. Now the good part is he gets back $5.00 in extra bucks.

Transaction 2:  CVS is running a promo on certain items in the ad, if you buy $30.00 you get a $10.00 CVS gift card. Okay, hubby has five dollars in extra bucks he can put on this transaction. He also scan his CVS card when he got to the store and out popped a $5.00 off $25.00 coupon. now he has $10.00 to use on the $30.00 order. Before he left, I checked out my coupons. I had 4 coupons for 25 cents off a pack of Charmin which is an item in the promo so he got 5 12 packs of Charmin. I had 4 coupons for 50 cents off the Dawn dish soap, on sale at .99 cents, he bought 4. He paid 18.41 and got back a $10.00 gift card.

RETAIL : 67.69   OUT OF POCKET  21.91  and he came home with a $10.00 gift card for me to use on next weeks ad.
And thank you Sweetie for making the trip for me today. YOU ROCK>>>>
