But I'm a very schedule-oriented (aka obsessive) person and I didn't want to start off my week feeling "behind." So I dutifully took out my lists and started gathering my coupons. It's not a particularly "good" week at either CVS or Walgreens, so both lists were pretty small to begin with, and then, frustratingly, several of the coupons I was looking for were not included in my region's inserts. Sigh. But those are the breaks and not every deal is meant to be. In the grand scheme of couponing, I have nothing to complain about.
And as luck would have it, I ended up walking in to my favorite CVS just minutes after they had marked down a whole cart full of Kraft and Pillsbury brand groceries to 90% off. I couldn't resist taking a quick peek, and then figured I should check my handy Couponizer book to see if I had any matching coupons. Lo and behold, can you believe I had matching coupons for almost everything! It was as though the coupon gods were smiling down upon me.
Here is what I got:
At CVS I spent $13.20 for $140.59 worth of groceries & drugstore merchandise, a savings of 91%.
(2) $1 off Colgate Total (Smart Source insert 10/10)
