Weekly Couponing Wrapup

I have been getting SO many great deals lately. Soon, I will be doing a series here on the blog on how to save money with different tips about all the couponing apps I use, as well as how to save on specific items and at specific stores. However, for now I will just share some deals that I have done in the past week.

On Tuesday I went to both Walmart and Staples. I didn't take any "haul" pictures, however here is what I picked up:

10 Rolls of double sided tape for 97 cents each (AMAZING deal!)
Baby shampoo to clean my makeup brushes @ $1.50 each
Burts Bees 4 pack @ $9.97
Loofa @ $2
Mouthwash @$3.97
Wrapping paper @ $3.97 each
Step Stool @ $16.94
Bra Washing Bag @ $1.17
Packing Tape @ $1.88
Burnable DVDs @ $15.97
DVD cases @ $6.97
Cotton rounds @ $2.04

I didn't use any coupons on this trip, however I was excited by the low prices, gotta love Walmart!

At Staples:

5 Scotch washi tapes @ $2 each
2 Martha Stewart bookplate labels @ $4.99 each
Sustainable Earth hanging files @$11.79

Not cheap, but all things I needed!

On Wednesday I stopped by Bath and Body Works to pick up a few items. 

I bought the three new lotions from the brand new Hawaii collection. They were on sale 3 for $12. I also picked up an antibacterial hand sanitizer for $1.75. My total was $13.75 plus tax.

Lucky for me, I had a couple coupons!

I used a 20% off coupon and a coupon for a free hand sanitizer! My total was $10.27 which I think was a great deal!

Later on Wednesday night I did a little couponing at Walgreens and CVS.

At Walgreens:

I picked up…
9 Sinful Nail colors at 99 cents a piece (on sale from $1.99!!!)
2 packages of Lysol wipes on sale 2/$4
and 2 Suave conditioners on sale 2/$2.99.

I used two manufacture coupons for $1.50 off each Suave conditioner, meaning that I picked up those Suave conditioners for free!

My total was $17.21, and I earned 2700 reward points! I probably could have gotten the total down lower with other coupons, but considering I will use all these items, it is a pretty good deal!

(Oh, and those nail polishes aren't for me…you'll see what they're for later in the year!)


I bought…
1 M&Ms Birthday Cake at 75 cents (earning 75 cents back in ECB…FREEBIE)
3 M&Ms Pretzels at Buy 2 get 1 free. (Making all 3 $2 total!)
7 Hallmark Cards @ $1.99 each, which totaled $13.93.

I used two CVS coupons…
The first was Buy 3 Hallmark cards, get one free. The limit on this coupon was $2.50. Despite the fact that I didn't spend $2.50 on any of the cards individually my cashier still took $2.50 off- SCORE!
The second coupon was for $1.50 off three cards.

My total for the 7 Hallmark cards ended up being $9.93, or $1.41 each. Not bad for a bunch of blank cards that I will definitely use in the future.

My total for my CVS purchase was $13.46, which wasn't bad at all!

Also this past week I placed several orders online.

I purchased 151 prints for free on Shutterfly. I used points on to get 50 prints free, and then on top of that they had a deal for 101 free prints. I placed two orders and just paid shipping on each of them.
Printing pictures is really important to me, however I don't like to shell out a ton of money which is why I always wait for one of these deals to pop up OR I use my points to buy myself free prints.

I also purchased some things on during their sale. (Including a not on sale bathing suit top….whoops). I always wait until the underwear is on sale 7 for $26.50.

On top of all those purchases, I used my points on Birchbox in order to get a free item! There was free shipping on this item as well, which I was so excited about. I'm sure you will be hearing more about this soon- I plan on doing a few product reviews soon!

Overall, I ended up saving….
$6.01 at CVS
$16.98 at Walgreens
$3.48 at Bath and Body Works
$22.65 at Shutterfly
$15 plus shipping at Birchbox
$26 at Aerie

For a grand total of: $90.12 saved!

How much did you save this week? Did you complete any coupon deals?
