TOTAL before coupons $45.76 + $1.65 tax = $47.41
Total mfg coupons used $13.50
Total ECB from prior transactions used $22.00
TOTAL $11.91 and I received $8.00 in ECB to use on future transactions.
Now I could have separated this into smaller transactions and paid less out of pocket and used some of the $8 in ECB that I received but the line was long and I didn't want to make people wait. And I know that I can easily use the ECB on future purchases. All in all I was happy with the shopping trip!!
I started using coupons in December 2009 and can't believe the amount of free and cheap stuff available. I am still learning and hoping to share my finding with anyone who is interested. I have enlisted my two sisters to help me out with the blog. They will eventually be posting along with me. Stay tuned for some smoking hot deals!! (Christee talk!)
