Couponing in July

My first stop was Target.  I had just a few items to look for with my coupons.  So here is my savings:  Total was $10.90 and my savings with coupons was $4.  The pens were free.  The clippers cost me 59 cents.  The Glade candles were on clearnace for $2.54 each.  I had two coupons for a $1 each.    Whoop Whoop!!!

 My next stop was Wal-Mart.  I would have had much more but my cashier seemed to think that half of my coupons would not scan.  So after a long process I walked out with a savings of 26.85!  Sweet!  My total bought before coupons was $114.93  after the coupons total due was $88.09.

 The next day we decided to try another WalMart.  I wanted to see if my printed coupons would really work at a WalMart.  So I only shopped for coupon items including diapers for our little one here at the house.  My total that I bought was $84.98.  My coupon savings was $28.50.  The "neat" items that I bought for just a few cents were the:  five pills of Zoloft ---27 cents, finger nail clippers---42 cents, band-aids---46 cents and dental floss was FREE!!!  That my friends was a awesome time to shop with coupons.  I did go and buy  the book:  Pick Another Checkout Lance, honey by the The krazy coupon ladies Joanie Demer and Heather Wheeler,    I hope to have more info the next time I go couponing!!  Goodness ...I had a fantastic savings of $59.35 for the weekend!

Don't Mess with My Rick Rack!

While on vacation this week we ventured over to Fancy Gap, VA.  I had time to see only one of the buildings housing Fancy Gap Pottery and Fabric.  The building I was able to see had all kinds of cotton fabric for only $3.99 a yard.  The two huge bins of buttons were only 2 cents a piece.  They had hoops, which I am still trying to figure out what I can do with them if I buy them, were a bag full for $1.  I found a couple of cool things but the coolest was what is above in the picture.    Rick Rack of all sorts of colors...I fell in love with all the colors. I can't wait til I get home to make something with my rick rack.  If your ever up that way check it out.  More details later on the rest of the buildings!
