Here’s a recap of my savings this weekend.
Friday night S and I went to the mall to check out the deals at The Children’s Place. I had a $10 perks points to use up before Sunday and I wanted to check out the winter clearance. I also used a 15% off coupon along with my perks points and I got all these items (minus the cute toddler) for $4.44.
Then we headed to Bath&Body Works so I could get my free antibacterial soap (had coupon). I picked up a bottle of Midnight Pomegranate lotion(to spend the required $10…oh, and I can’t believe a bottle of lotion is now $10.50!!), but I used a gift card to pay for it, so I really don’t feel like I spent anything! I chose the Kitchen Lemon for my soap ($5.00 value).
On Saturday, I got some time to shop by myself while J watched S, so I headed to Walgreens. I saved a lot of money (about $30) on things that we actually needed, so I was pretty happy about that. Then I went grocery shopping (stopped at Starbucks for my FREE coffee first…had an empty Starbucks coffee bag w/ coupon on the side…saved $2.00) and saved almost $20 by using paper coupons. Whoo hoo!
Saturday night J and I rented a movie from our local video store…except we had a credit, so we didn’t have to pay for it! (saved $4.00)
On Sunday, we all packed in the car and headed to Einstein Bagels for our free bagels w/ schmear (coupon). J and I also ordered coffees and got free bagel poppers (coupon). Saved $8. Yeah for free stuff.
Then we went to Target so I could pick up some of the Sobe water (I had a B1G1 coupon and it’s on sale this week), but I FORGOT my coupons. Darn! I still picked up the free Special K granola cereal (coupon) and a few other things we needed. (saved $4.50 in coupons)
One other cool money-saving thing I did this weekend is I signed up for a Sunday paper subscription…I went through discountednewspapers.com and am saving 55%! Besides saving a ton of money, I won’t have to leave my house on Sunday mornings in search of a paper…it will be delivered right to my door! Sweet!
Approximate total weekend savings: $73.50
