Saving $ is kind of fun

As most of you know I am an Accountant with a spending problem, but recently I have embraced Coupons, Loyalty clubs, and Sales!!!  I am the type of person that if there is a loyalty card sign me up, I am alright with letting their email clog up my inbox!!

So here are the saving that I got this week so far

Sports Authority

Join The League (it’s free)  and get a $5 welcome reward which they gave us right away for signing up in store.  Earn Points with addition purchases and get 5% back and money saving coupons in your inbox.

As always get the Target Debit Card, the $ comes directly out of your checking account and you get 5% back on every purchase, even at Starbucks in Target stores!!!

While shopping and picking up some baby stuff, I found Up & Up Diaper Genie Re-fills.  Individual Diaper Genie Refills were $10 each (which I’m pretty sure is high but I live in Illinois now), and the 3 pack of the Up & Up Brand were just $15.  So far they have been working great and will keep getting those.

Diaper Pail


This is becoming my favorite store, their sales are awesome and they have a bunch of perks with their savings card.  Of course because I have a CVS spitting distance from my apartment I had to sign up for the ExtraCare Card (yup this one is free too).  In my shopping trip today here is what I got and what I saved.

2 Pints on Ben & Jerry’s – Sale 2 for $7 saved $3.98

1 12 Pack of Scott Toilet Paper – On Sale for $7.77 saved $3.22

1 Gallon of Milk – On Sale for $2.69 saved $.30

1 Quart Lemon Lime Gatoraid – On Sale for $1 Saved $1.37

2 Bags of Lays Potato Ships – On Sale Buy 1 Get 1 Free  Saved $4.29

2 Girl Scout Candy Bars – On Sale 2 for $2 saved $.94

Total Savings$15.47

AND earned $1.50 in ExtraCare bucks to use on my next shopping trip.  Yup that’s FREE Money!!!

I will keep you updated on my summer saving and let you know if I find any other awesome deals along the way!!!

Happy Saving Everybody!!

    I love saving money too! Don’t forget that you can use manufacturer coupons and Target coupons together. And they have a new app for your smart phone called cartwheel that you can use in addition to both coupons, which usually gives you 5% off that item. I haven’t used Cartwheel yet, but I plan to try it out this week!
    Happy saving!
