Today I took advantage of the double coupon day at our local Kmart. My bill prior to all my coupons was $74.00 and I paid out of my pocket after all my coupons, a mere $19.43, can’t beat that can ya! I have instructed everyone in my family that I was going to make them each up a basket of products that they use but hate buying. My family is not as ‘coupon savvy’ as myself, so I am going to put my coupon knowledge to good use. We have a cat, so obviously all the cat food will be for our furry friend. We have a dog too so all the doggie treats will satisfy him too. The Twix, well, that will satisfy me, and I am sure I will need some pantiliners at some point!! 🙂 Then we have razors, nail polish and shampoo that will go towards the family gift baskets of goodies, and Resolve that will be used to clean our dirty carpet after the holidays. So you see, it was all stuff that will get used by some member of my family and it cost less than $20.00. This is what it is like when you are shopping on a budget.
