I Feel Giddy, Oh So Giddy...

Okay, this is my best coupon shopping trip yet and I got so giddy about it, my left arm started aching and I thought I was going to have a heart attack. (I'm totally not kidding. Apparently I need to get out more.) Anywho... I went to Smiths tonight and this is what I got:

    • 9 boxes of Kleenex
    • 13 bottles of Gatorade
    • 4 bags Halls cough drops
    • 5 bottles of Tylenol
    • 4 packages feminine pads (I have 3 daughters, got to start stocking up.)
    • 8 packs Orbit gum
    • 1 tube Colgate toothpaste
    • 6 cans veggies
    • 5 cans evaporated milk
    • 6 boxes granola bars
    • 3 bottles Snuggle softener
    • 2 boxes saltines
    • 5 boxes hot chocolate

    Total without savings card = $164

    Total w/savings card = $79

    Total w/ savings card + coupons = $55 !!!

    So giddy it demanded a blog post! Ummm...what is Smith's? Have I asked this before? Did we have a conversation about this and CVS? Or am I imaginging this? I get excited about the idea of saving money. Somehow it is not one of my gifts!

    Oh for heaven's SAKES!!! LOL! Look at you. I'm so jealous. Just yesterday Carolina and I were talking up a storm about your couponing. We stared at the ground afterwards kicking the dirt. We both agreed we need to do it! Gosh darn you!

    Funniest part: your pains.....in your arm....lol....(okay...not really) but really...

    Good for you! I know I need to be better about using them. It is amazing what I save when I do use them.
