We got the following message from one of our readers this week:
I have been following your blog for several months now and have been amazed by the amount of money you save and even make. I told myself I wanted to try it and see how it worked for me. It took me a few months to read your “couponing 101” and understand how it should be done. I finally made my first effort earlier this week when my son needed diapers and I saw on your blog that Walgreens had them on sale. I didn’t take a picture that trip but using coupons and store sales I got 2 pkgs of diapers, 2 pkgs of wipes, 2 pkgs (4 ct.) disposable razors, and 2 Sunday papers (I don’t get the paper yet 🙁 ) for $31.02 and I got $6 in RR. I didn’t quite understand how the RR’s worked at the time so it was a little more than expected. After that trip, saving over $12, I got really excited. I made another trip today and although it didn’t work out exactly as I planned it out, I think it still went pretty well for my second trip. This visit (picture attached) would have cost me $63.73. I paid $18.76 oop and still have $4 in RR to use later. I’m pretty satisfied with my first experience and think that I am now addicted!! Thanks for your great blog to help others save money also!!
We love to see that our ways our working for our readers. Hopefully Brittany’s experience can help show you other newbies that sometimes it takes a little time and patience, but it is WELL WORTH IT!
Thanks for sharing with us Brittany!
