I went pretty original with the title on this one. TCW. Stands for Target, CVS, and Walgreens.
This will be a quick post. First, Target:
I didn't take a picture of everything. Partly because I have already dispersed it to it's rightful places, and partly b/c I didn't feel like trying to fit it all in one picture. So I just took a picture of the biggest deal from the loot. This is eight, 10 lb bags of kitty litter. I also bought 2 jars of Classico red sauce, 2 jars of Classico white sauce, 2 boxes of 9ct Bagel Bites, 4 bottles of Nesquik strawberry milk, and 6 bags of kitty treats. Total before coupons: $42.80 (the litter was on sale for $1.77! nuts.) Total actually paid: $13.82 before tax.
CVS ~ 1 box of 82ct Pampers diapers, 2 tubes of Colgate toothpaste, 1 pack 24ct bottled water (we have good water so I don't normally buy bottled water, but this was completely FREE so...who am I to be picky?), 2 64oz bottles of Welch's grape juice, 3 bottles of baby powder, 1 bottle of baby lotion, and 1 bottle of baby bubble wash, 2 cans of Campbell's chicken noodle soup, 2 cans of Campbell's tomato soup, and 1 bottle of Dawn dish detergent. Total before coupons: $55.86. Total actually paid: $21.47 before tax. (That's less than the regular price of those Pampers!!!
Walgreens ~ 2 bottles of Softsoap body wash, 2 packs of 12ct Cottenelle toilet paper, 4 boxes of Royal pudding, and 1 bottle of Dawn dish detergent. Total before coupons: $21.29 Total actually spent: $6.70 before tax.
I am loving this coupon thing. Yes, it is very frustrating, and a lot of hard work, but it is so worth it! Trying to make things work with debt and being a stay at home mom has been trying, to say the least, but my couponing efforts have enabled us to "survive". =) I really feel like I am doing my part, so to speak, in helping us to live better and manage our money more wisely.
