frugal friday.

so, you know i love to coupon.
i get a thrill out of watching my total go down, down, down...
and spending pennies on the dollar of the retail price.
love it!

here's a recent shopping trip.

*4 bottles of nivea body wash for woman, $3 each, FREE after $3 coupon.
*2 bottles of nivea body wash for men, $3 each, FREE after $3 coupon.

*thomas english muffins, $2.28, $2.72 MONEY MAKER after $5 coupon.
*thomas bagel thins, $2.59, $2.41 MONEY MAKER after $5 coupon.
*the other stuff I didn't have coupons for.

my total was.......
are you ready for this???

my total was $0.47!!!!
no joke!
walmart actually owed me money until I added the two mountain dews!!
{i felt a little strange getting money i opted to get more free stuff!!!}

the aquafresh kids toothpaste was from walgreens.
it ended up being about $0.75 each after tax.

total spent on all of those goodies?



cause i know you're gonna ask.
most all of my coupons are either clipped from the sunday paper or are printed off of the internet.
the thomas coupons, however, were sent to us from thomas.
we had a quality issue and contacted the company to bring it to their attention.
a few days later we had coupon goodness in our mailbox!

Yes! I'd love to know how to do this.

The Nivea Happiness (orange) body wash is one of my current favorites.
