Coupon Shopping

Mr. Scrappymo! went off to have a leisurely lunch with his buddies. One friend recently had a heart attack and DH has been anxious to see him and hear how his recovery is going.

I got dropped off a Guildford Shopping Mall as I wanted to do a bit of a coupon shop. I had my price matching all circled on the competitors flyers and my trusty coupon binder in tow and I was off to conquer the bargains!

Here is a picture of my haul...The best part is DH walked into the store just as I was finishing up with the cashier and he manhandled the bags down into the car...teehee
Pricematched the U pads to RCSS...,,,the Walmart price is handwritten in red to the right (an additional savings of .50 cents).
Pricematched the Dawn from  Save-on Foods...an additional savings of .01 cent each... I smiled a bit at this one as my Gran always said "a penny saved is a penny earned"
Pricematched the soup to Shoppers Drug Mart...an additional savings of $1.40 per can.

Coupons:
Soup $1.00 off every 4 cans..saved $3.00
Always pads..........................saved $1.00
Purex soap............................saved $2.50
Royale toilet paper.................saved $2.00
Royale paper towels...............saved $2.25  (DH used these for the BBQ...I boycott them myself. Think what we could save if I got him to boycott as well!

To calculate my total savings, I added my subtotal of $50.30 plus the $24.38 savings by pricematching (see my red ink prices).  If I did not price match and had just paid the Walmart price today, my subtotal would have been $74.68

As you can see, after my coupons were deducted, I paid $37.06. Pretty darn close to half off...YAY!!!
This jumped to $41.68 after the tax was added on....Ouch!

All in all...not a bad haul!.

  4. There is no such danger with electric engines like those found in an electric compressor.
    In line oiler Lubrication is critical to extending the
    life of your valuable air impact wrench and increase productivity.
    It sounds just like a funny problem, ridiculous issue or else.
