What a great trip! I can’t believe I saved all that money! But really, to be fair, after taxes I was out of pocket a little under $20. This is still a $84.66 savings with only $20 Out Of Pocket which is over a 76% savings!

These savings are based on regular store prices versus sales because that is how I shopped today. I didn’t use coupons just because I had them, I’ve been saving a few for certain sales which is why I hope to go back later this week to take advantage of another razor deal and scotch tape but you can check out  Wild For Wags for this weeks best deals so you can take advantage with coupons and for things you want.

That box in the front has my mailbox freebies (Degree sample and coupon & Wear Red pin) I love the mailbox when there are only freebies and no bills.


About CharityAnn

I'm a small town, stay at home mom living on a shoestring budget. I spend my time working as a ChaCha guide from home, searching out internet coupons and deals, and entering sweepstakes for fun prizes we couldn't normally afford. Through ChaCha, coupons, deals, and sweepstakes I have found a way to continue staying home with my kids while still affording the things we want. I'm still learning what works and what doesn't, but I hope to share my finds with local readers so that we may all enjoy what our small town has to offer without paying big city prices.
