$20 a Week For Building My Stockpile!
I have been really struggling financially since my divorce. I always watch that Extreme Couponing show on TLC and wish I could do that! In reality it is just too hard for me right now. Being a single working mom of three leaves me with very little time. However, I decided to start on my stockpile slowly, by matching coupons with sales and money savings apps. My plan is to budget $20 a week to devote to my stockpile. Today I did my first trip to Walgreens and while it isn't a massive haul, I am proud! After sales, coupons, and using Checkout 51, I spent $18.83.
Here is the breakdown of what I bought and what coupons I used:
*Scott Select-a-Size Paper Towels 6 rolls - Regular Price: $6.29, Balance Rewards Savings: $1.80, In-Store Coupon - $1.00 off Final Price: $3.49
*Cottonelle Clean Care 12 pack: Regular Price: $6.29, Balance Rewards Savings: $1.80, In-Store Coupon - $1.00 off, $1,00 coupon from Coupons.com Final Price: $2.49
*2 Glade Candles 2/$6.00, Received a $2 Register Reward, which I used in the second transaction, I also used a $1/2 coupon from Coupons.com I also redeemed this for a Checkout 51 rebate and saved $0.75 Final Price: $2.25/2.
*6 Assorted Packages of Reclosable Bags (sandwich, quart and gallon) Regular Price: $13.50 I used the in-ad coupon and received all 6 for $5.94
*Purex Laundry Detergent 50 oz. Regular Price: $4.99, $1.99 sale price for Balance Rewards Members. (No coupons used)

Hopefully I can do even better next week!
