Here's The Deal
(Here's how I did it!)
Lesson learned: NEVER leave home without your coupons; even if you keep them in your car!
On our way to the checkout, we passed by a rack of health and beauty markdowns. Included in the items were Maalox and Benefiber. I knew I had coupons for these items because I just clipped them yesterday!
My husband and I paid for the milk, we got into the car and came home. I ran inside, grabbed my coupon tote and ran back to the store. Luckily, we only live 2 minutes driving time from the store.
Here's how my transaction breaks down:
- (2) 26 ounce bottles Maalox for $4.08 each (originally $11.99 each for a total savings of $15.82)
- (4)72 caplet bottles of Benefiber for $4.31 each (originally $12.69 each for a total savings of 33.52)
Total before discount: $74.74
Total coupons applied: $24.00
Total after all applied savings and coupons: $1.40
With tax: $1.67
And the best part? I don't have to grocery shop this week, for anything other than milk, because I planned each meal around things we already have in our pantry, our stockpile, fridge or chest freezer. So, the $50.00 I had allotted for this week for groceries can be used towards stockpile items like this, if I happen to come across a deal worth a dollar or two!
