Saving Money Tips!!...How to Save $73 in one shopping trip!!


Even with my new job and new higher salary, I still need to save some money. Having a mortgage payment will do that to someone. Well first thing you got to do is invest some time into it. That was my coffee table on Saturday morning. I searched and clipped a whole mess of coupons and looked at the Shop Rite ad and wound up saving $73 in one trip. Yes I had the coupons but there is an EXTRA TIP on saving. Use the coupons on items that are already on sale so you save more. Don't believe me? Well here's the receipt proof!


 
That was the result of my coupon binge. Some of the items because they were on sale came out Free. Where are these coupons you might ask? Usually I get them in the Sat/Sun paper and the extra express paper I sometimes get.  But this is just one store. There are many other ways you can save.


Subway, Victoria Secret, Bath & Body Works, Vitamin World, and Crate & Barrel all have coupons as well as many other stores. If you GIVE THEM AN EMAIL ADDRESS you will be on the list for coupons or GIVE THEM YOUR PHONE #. Trust me, in that picture is the proof. Up there is $10 off a VS bra, 20% off a Bath & Body Works purhase, Buy 1 sanwhich get one free, Free VS hiphugger panty, %10 off a Crate & Barrel purchase etc...

Another way to save on your drug store and make-up items is CVS Extra Bucks! You can use them like cash. Up there is $12 I can use at any time before 4/09. In their weekly filer they advertise which products you can get Extra Bucks on, new ones each week, AND you use coupons on the items and STILL get the Extra bucks. I do this all the time.There are so many other ways to save too!

Good job. Well the only way I am saving now is changing lifestyles. I don't buy new clothes that much. I spend more money on travel and photography and food rather than clothes and shoes. :) I guess I am way past beyond the excitement of shopping :) I am shopping for experiences... :)

Money saving tips are the best! Lately, I have been selling items that are Brand New (read, bought by me and never worn) on eBay to do a little Spring Cleaning, and earn some extra spending money. Every little bit helps, right? :)
