Reader Posts and promos to help you save

Reader Ashlee emailed me about a recent shopping trip that she went on and used her coupons to receive awesome savings!  Here’s part of what Ashlee had to say:

 

I’ve always heard couponing will save you money but I always threw
the coupons in the trash. I purchased a binder and some baseball card holders and went
that next Sunday to get all the local papers and began clipping! To make it
easier i organized my coupons by category and type.ie: frozen: ice cream, pizza etc. I waited about two weeks so I had an assortment of coupons. I checked all the local advertisements in the paper. Since all the stores are so close I knew even if i had to go to the store across the street if the deal was worth it I was going to do it. I came up with my lists and placed all the coupons in an envelope with a list and the cost of the items from the sales paper. My first trip was for groceries and HBA items (make up, deodorant, shampoo etc.) I purchased a total of 289 items totaling $446.63. I used 128 coupons and saved $156.82. My final balance was $289.81! That was a huge savings for my first time couponing and I’ve been couponing since! 
Also since then I did my “extreme couponing” 2 other times. I saved 51% on one ticket and 84% on the other! I lOVE COUPONS!

 

That’s amazing Ashlee!  I bet your NEVER going to throw a coupon in the trash again!!!  Thanks so much for sharing your savings with us!  Look for an email coming soon from me with your $10.00 Amazon E-Card for sharing your story with Hersavings!
