I used to be a huge, huge coupon”er”. I spent half a day each Sunday going through the paper cutting out coupons, organizing them, matching them with sales flyers and making my list. Honestly, it probably took me more than half a day. It took so much of my time that I found myself doing it less and less until I finally quit altogether. I was glad to have my time back but whenever I was shopping I couldn’t help but be nagged by the thought that there was probably a coupon available to clip for a purchase I was about to make. That bugged me. After all, it’s saving money that makes doing extra things possible…like the things my daughter and I did last week. Check out the photo below!
My daughter was helping out at a college orientation in Mobile, Alabama and when she was off for a day we swung over to New Orleans for a visit. I hadn’t been in a long time and she had never been. We had the best time! We took a tour, ate…everything and even swung by a casino in Biloxi on our way back to Mobile. I couldn’t have done it without having saved some money because I didn’t use a credit card for anything. YAY! (We went to the beach too! See top photo.)
To help me save money, I’ve been clipping coupons the EASY WAY…paperless coupons! For example, I use the Walgreens Mobile App to add manufacturer eCoupons directly to my Balance Rewards account. You can scan your Balance Rewards Card (via the App on your phone, the actual card or by punching in your phone number) at checkout and the coupons you chose are automatically applied. Simply sync your Balance Rewards membership to the Mobile App to get started. I have Walgreens scan my synced Balance Rewards card from my phone and all my coupons come off the total. I LOVE THAT!!! I save money AND it only takes a few seconds of my time.
Here are some things I saved on last week at Walgreens. I’m restocking my car with Wet Ones. They are part of my “must haves” for traveling. Thankfully, my car door perfectly holds them. Awesome! I finally bought a pair of tweezers for my center console. That’s just to keep any stray hairs at bay. Um…just sayin’. I tried the Walgreens brand lip balm in that green round container. It’s watermelon. I LOVE it! There was a coupon on that too.
My husband is a great cook, so we also save money by eating at home a lot. It brought him this cookbook back from New Orleans. I know he can whip us up an awesome meal from one of the first chefs he ever watched on TV, Justin Wilson. BTW, I got that salt for .59 by using a Walgreens paperless coupon. Woo hoo! (I like saving money but I only buy Morton’s salt. I love the little girl and the umbrella. What can I say?)
I also caught a great deal on that foaming soap. It was $2 each and there was a $1 coupon off of 2. YAY! We really go through that soap at our house. It was sad that I needed to buy Bactine but at least I saved $1 using the paperless coupons. On the last day of our trip, I took a spectacular fall over an uneven sidewalk that was uprooted by these gorgeous trees and cut up my knee. I also tore the knee out of my favorite denim capris. So sad. The happy part is that even though my fall would have made Jim Carrey think he could improve his physical comedy, I didn’t break anything, just cuts and bruises. Whew.
Well, I’m all stocked up for my next trip (LOL…knee humor) and I’m planning to use some of the money I’ve been saving to head to another of my favorite places…Savannah! Do you use paperless coupons? Are you saving for anything specific? (One of my mid-long term savings is for a new fridge.)
