First time with overage

Today was awesome. I got some great prices on things and met up with a fellow couponer that I found online. She was AMAZING. She gave me some coupons I had been looking for and many more that will get me some great free products with stacking.

I was in Walmart and they had the trial L’Oreal Man Expert shaving cream that I had been looking for! I also bought another pack of Scrubbing Bubbles to use my overage from the shaving cream. My first time with overage, so exciting! I also didn’t think I would get any more coupons – but I did. Too late now, will have to use them for more. ;)

The lady in Walmart really didn’t like the coupon but after talking with 6 people she took it. The manager said “It’s a coupon, take it and put it in your drawer.” Then she was all in a huff about it not fitting in her drawer. I don’t understand the deal with the cashiers being so bitter about coupons but she took it in the end so I was happy.

Coupons and Freebies

My first day with a blog and I already have some cool things to post. Well they are cool for me.

Today during our lunch break my friend/coworker and I walked down to the local Shoppers Drug Mart to browse. While down there we manged to find a couple decent deals to try out our newb couponing skills.

I have only tried my hand in couponing two or three other times – so this really is new to me. I am not really interested in building a stock pile and taking up half my house with stuff I will never use all of. If there is a good deal and it is something we use I might buy a few (guess it depends how long said item lasts) – but I don’t want to store and move this stuff around for the rest of my life. Stuff will always go on sale and there will always be coupons – I really don’t need to fill my house with enough supplies to open a store.

On to today’s find:

1 x U by Kotex Tampons (18’s) @ $2.99 – $1.50 coupon = $1.49
1 x U by Kotex Liners (18’s – trial size) @ 1.99 – $1.50 coupon = $0.49
1 x L’OrĂ©al Studio Hair Paste @ 2.99 – $2.00 coupon from tear pads = $0.99

Subtotal: $2.97
Tax: $0.61
Total: $3.57
Saved: $7.00

I never in all my life would of though I would one day upload a photo of feminine hygiene products on the internet. Kinda weird.

When I came home from work today I had TWO freebies waiting for me. Two incredibly AWESOME freebies might I add. This doesn’t happy often or ever, especially like this. Perfect timing for the new blog. Super excited to try these out.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra 40ml
Tassimo Gevalia Dark House Blend T DISCs (12)

Both of these products came from Facebook offers. The La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra came from their Facebook page – you had to tell them about your sensitive skin and they picked 1000 people to receive the product.

As for the Tassimo Gevalia Dark House Blend T DISCs – you simply had to be the first of so many people to like their Facebook page (and fill out the form) to receive the T DISCs. Pretty sweet – I was expecting one to try not a full package of 12! Super awesome and packaged so nicely.

Looking forward to trying both of these products out!
