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".

PERFECT DEAL AT WAGS!!!


Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner......
Softsoap Body Wash coupon for a free bottle just keeps spitting out!!

Today I ended up buying 25 softsoap body washes, 14 chapsticks ,13 skintimates and various fillers(clorox, easter candy,sunday papers, tea,baking soda)-I went to 5 different Wags- all close to my house-
Transaction 1-
1. soft soap body wash 3.99
2. 1 chapstick true shimmer 1.99
3. 1 skintimate shaving gel 2.29
4. Dawn soap REG price 1.99
on sale w/wags Q .99
5. reynold's foil REG price 1.59
on sale w/wags q .89
= 11.85
use $1 soft soap body wash coupon from today's inserts
$1 foil Q
.50 Dawn Q
WAGS Q (1.00 off Dawn and .70 off foil)
7.27 + tax- I used a $6 RR about to expire
OOP1.78
RECEIVED:
$3.99 Q for free softsoap
$2.00 RR for chapstick
$3.00 RR for skintimate
After this I started to roll my RR's
I would buy a Bodywash and skintimate-pay with free bodywash Q and $2RR from the chapstick deal pay very little oop...around 50 cents and get back another Q for a free bodywash and $3 RR...THIS IS THE TRANSACTION THAT MADE THAT LIGHT BULB GO BRIGHT OVER MY HEAD!
Then I would buy another bodywash and a chapstick and a filler over $1.01....after I got all my candy and clorox and tea, I started buying the rest of my Sunday papers for 1/2 price! I would pay for this transaction with the free bodywash Q and the $3 RR for the skintimate- OOP under a buck!
RINSE AND REPEAT as many times as your back and feet allow!!
I bought $199.42 worth of merchandise for $19.61 OOP for an overall cost of $12.61...that super duper spreadsheet figures this all out. My
OOP would've been $4 less, but the no sugar added Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream was calling out my name.
I decided to call it a day around 7:00pm-I will see if it still works manana! I can't believe that WAGS is doing this on purpose.
My picture has all my deals for today minus my 6-12 packs of diet pepsi I scored today at Target! I had a great frugal day!
