Money Saving Inspiration


This gal, Crystal, is an inspiration. Check out one of her latest shopping trips:

“It’s been awhile since I’ve had a really spectacular coupon-shopping trip. So I was pretty excited about tonight’s trip! Here’s what I bought:

2 boxes of Triscuits — $2.29 each, used $2/1 printable coupons =  $0.29 each

2 Yoplait yogurts — $0.70 each, used $0.30/1 printable coupons (doubled) = $0.10 each

2 Schick Quattro razor packages — $3.50 each, used 2 $5/1 Ladies’ Quattro printable coupon = free plus overage

1 Schick Hydro Men’s razor — $6.29, used $5/1 Hydro printable coupon = $1.29 after coupon

2 Schick Quattro & Men’s Schick Xtreme razor — $3.16 & $3.50 each, used $6/2 printable coupon = $0.66 total for both

1 package Skittles — used free coupon

3 DOLE products — used 3 free coupons that Coupon Pro generously mailed me a few weeks ago

2 Clif LUNA bars — $1 each, used 2 $0.50/1 coupons (doubled) = free after coupons

1 Excedrin — $3.13, used $2/1 coupon (this printed at checkout the last time my husband went shopping) = $1.13 after coupon

Beech-Nut product — used free coupon

Before coupons and sales, my total was $58.18. After coupons and sales + a $5 catalina, the store owed me $0.73. I could have added on a small filler item, but I just decided to let the store have the small overage since I’d gotten overage myself already.”

So, how’d she do it?

The store she went to, Dillons, doubles small coupons
and allows any overage from coupons to apply to the rest of your total.

She had multiple free item coupons direct from companies.
She used mostly online printable coupons from sites like and

And I’m sure planned ahead and was organized. If you want to see where she got her coupons, check out the actual blog post here.

Have you had any great successes whilst shopping lately? I’d love to hear!
