Extreme Couponing?

Posted Apr 30 2011 4:25pm

I don't know if you guys have heard of, or have watched TLC's Extreme Couponing show.  I was immediately intrigued and amazed and scared by it.  But, I was also inspired.  If (at the very extreme side) these people can get such amazing deals, why am I not couponing?  WHY am I not COUPONING?!

... Well, I am now.  I am pretty proud and excited by my first ever coupon / double coupon trip.  I thought I'd share how I did with you guys.  Oh, and pictures, too!
Here's my binder:

Trip #1 - Walgreens

Total = $79.23With coupons, I paid $31.71Savings of $47.52 (60% savings)(I also got a $4 coupon good toward my next trip at Walgreens.)

Trip #2 - Pick N Save

(Pick N Save only doubles up to 5 coupons on their Double Daze (this week,) so I had to break it down into three transactions to get the most savings.)
Transaction #1Total = $54.81With coupons, I paid $19.60Savings of $35.21 (65% savings)

Transaction #1Total = $44.91 With coupons, I paid $18.05Savings of $26.86 (60% savings)

Transaction #1Total = $35.25 With coupons, I paid $15.18Savings of $20.10 (58% savings)

TOTAL shopping today = $214.23I paid $84.54($129.69 savings = 61% savings)

So, obviously I love couponing now.  I don't know if I can ever go back to NOT saving money.  I'll share my trips with you guys here.  :)

So, do any of you guys coupon?  What are your favorite tricks and tips?
