coupons, coupons....

Though I'm sure most of you are not interested, I just want to share that today at Target I got free hot cocoa, pens, and lotions (about $20 in total savings), along with some other greatly discounted items, using coupons. I think that qualifies as making money while shopping, Jared. My new job title since retiring from the business world is "shopper" and I'm damn good at it. I don't need any pens and I'm not sure what I'll do with them, but they were free so I couldn't not get them. I made up for the savings by spending the money on other full priced items in the store, so all in all we are still negative for the whole trip....;)

It's not how much you spend, it's how much you save!

Being the official shopper is probably the best job EVER! LOL! I have taken it on with a vengance and always tell Joe how much I save (not spend). What he doesn't know won't hurt him ;)

LOL - I just went in picked up a Kodak disposable camera marked $3.84 and had a $5.00 off Kodak coupon. I guess since I had other items, they used the whole coupon instead of adjusting it to the value of the camera! Have fun!

Yes, I did get the olay lotions there - and the pens were a mfr coupon from a magazine....
