About Me

My photo
I'm so addicted to couponing and chasing a good deal. Thank goodness I have a wonderful husband We've been married 12 years. (He must love me very much because he puts up with my couponing and low carb cooking)!!! We live in San Antonio, home of the NBA champions, San Antonio Spurs!! I am a big Dallas Cowboys fan and have always admired my favorite player, Roger Staubach. We belong to a Texas Hold 'em Poker League and have made some really good friends while playing poker. I am a proud Grandmother and love spending time with my "munchkins".

2 Things I've learned about WAGS --that will help you make a more perfect deal

2 things I've learned this week at WAGS:

1. have the same number of items as coupons-I started being much more diligent with this and it has worked!
2. If you want more than one item that gives RR's-try to split the transactions--the RR deal - Buy $10 in selected Kraft products, get $3 RR (9/26 to 10/25) would only work if it was the only RR deal in the transaction (learned the hard way-but took my items back and did it separately-and it worked like a charm)

Wow! $7 coupon off in the Trial Crest Whitestrips box

Thanks to this blog...http://savvysavingmomma.blogspot.com/ I discovered that I have another coupon for $7 off Crest Whitestrips!!! It was in the box of Trial Whitestrips I just snatched at CVS.

Close to Perfect Deal at CVS

I finally found one of these trial size Crest Whitestrips! I had 1 $7.00 off coupon for any Crest Whitestrips and was able to use it on this trial size, price $5.99. I got this FREE-OOP $0...................the reason why this wasn't perfect-on some of the blogs people were able to actually able to get the entire $7 off if they bought another Proctor and Gamble product. That didn't work for me.

Anyway, FREE is a good thing!
