My "Happy" Purchase June 9th

Yesterday, I got a great deal on Niveas Happy Sensation Lotion at Smiths.

A few weeks ago, they had a sale on it for $3.99, but when I went to get one, they were all out. So, I asked for a rain check and used mine yesterday. Plus, I had a $3 off coupon making it only $1. It is normally around $6. I love the smell of the lotion and look forward to using it! It's a good size bottle, too, should last a long time.

.13 cent toothpaste at Smiths!

I was so excited to get Colgate toothpaste last week for only .13 cents. They had them on sale for .88 cents and then I had a .75 cent off coupon making it only like .13.

Best deal I have grabbed in a long time.

I also got a rain check for Nivea Happy Sensation Lotion for $3.99. I have a $3.00 off coupon so it will only cost $1 when I buy them! I am excited, as I really like that lotion!

Winco Deals...

I don't how many others have a Winco store near them, but they send out the best coupons ever-completely free items! This week I will get free Hamburger Helper, Pork and Beans, Ketchup, 1 lb. ground beef, and Shasta soda. I just think that's completely crazy! They usually have some pretty great deals anyways, but when they send out free coupons I just love it.

Target Coupons...

One more entry for the day! I love Target! They are very coupon-friendly, I guess you could say in that you can use their store coupons with a manufacturer all for sale items, as well! They are one place you can really see the savings quickly! Plus, they have really cute items!

Here's their coupon section to see what coupons they have currently; I noticed they have a $2 off women's sunglasses and $3 off their Merona sandals (priced at $15 and up) right now, grab those for a great deal!

Favorite Coupon/Deal Websites...

First, I want to share with you my favorite websites I follow regularly for daily deals and savings. My all-time favorite is She is so great about listing weekly grocery store deals, on-line deals, coupon tips and more! Check it out, I know you'll love the site!

My second favorite is She, too, has an amazing site with deals, freebies, events, tips and more!

These are the main ones I follow, but please feel free to add your favorites, as well!

Persistence will pay off...

I am starting this blog with the intent of logging all my successes and tips I learn along the way of my couponing journey. I feel that couponing will benefit me and family in so many ways. These are the main reasons I want to become coupon savvy.

  • Cut my grocery bill in half at least (my favorite coupon site said we should be saving up to 70% on our grocery bill each week while couponing)
  • Getting my stockpile (6 mos. food storage) in order and ready
  • With the savings hopefully afford yearly family vacations
  • To just become a more budget-savings kind of mama
If you stumble upon my blog, welcome and I hope you join the coupon journey with me! Yes, it takes time and planning, but the savings will be all worth it! I would also like to do a coupon exchange, so as I get coupons I don't need I will list them and anyone who would like them are welcome to them. Please just email me at Feel free to join this blog and my others!
