As my son’s parent it’s my job to see that he gets the best start in life. And! Since I made such a mess of my life by making poor decisions when I was young and netted nothing financially to aid my children when it came to helping them enter into the world as successful adults, then my son’s student loan repayments became mines because his entry into adulthood debt free is my job as his parent.
Well! I went couponing again! Yesterday I purchased $637 worth of product for $307. Not bad! Especially since this is my second month couponing. However, I’m doing excellent at catching the deals and getting a few freebies in the process.
Colgate Toothpaste: sale price .89 + coupon value .50 + coupon bonus .39 = free
This is the first time I’ve ever seen these Nabisco cookies this cheap. They are usually on sale for a $1 but his mega sale Kings has them on sale for .88 cents. These make great snacks for the summer.
Savings per item: $2.11
OMG! I went crazy when I saw I could get this product for .99 cents! Yes! You read correctly! I got Cape Cod potato chips for under a dollar!
Cape Cod: sale price 1.99 + coupon value 1.00 = .99 cents
Savings per item: $2.80
It has been a decade since I’ve brought and used Hamburger Helper but the price I could not beat!
Hamburger Helper: sale price 1.49 + coupon value buy 3 for a 1.00 off = $1.16 per box
Savings per item: $2.13
Well these are just a few items I got but I also got some healthier foods too!
Please remember: Each Kroger/King Soopers manager has the right to decided how their store will take part in the use of coupons. I usually do my shopping, not just couponing, at stores that will allow me to use 5 coupons per like items.
Silly people don’t like free money!
Recently, I’ve been using coupons to buy items. And since my money-saving announcement, I’ve gotten all kinds of flack from folks. I’ve heard such things as “why would you do that” or “you’re wasting your time” and “I can’t stand people who use coupons.”
At first the unsupportive statements made me feel shameful and gave me a spirit to quit. Then one day I went shopping in an all white community. And as I was looking at a product trying to figure out if it would be worth purchasing then a man stopped in front of me. He said, “Wow! Look at your book! I bet you are going to save a ton of money! You are so organized! I’m not even that organized!” [I wasn’t sure what to think about his last comment. lol.] But it was clear to see the white man approved of my strategy to save money by using the money hundreds of companies give to couponers. Honestly, it was his comments and a few more comments from white people who made me realize coupons are FREE money.
Anywhohow, because I was willing to give L’Oreal products a try I got their shampoo and conditioner for free! And it normally sells for 5 dollars and some change.
Now mind you some black people might think only black hair care products are good for their hair; thus, making them loyal to products that state it’s for black hair only. But it was a good friend that enlighten me to try hair-care products for non-black folks. Her hair is her testimony! It’s long! It’s healthy! And it looks really good! And with the exception of hair relaxers for black folks she doesn’t use just black hair care products to keep her hair healthy. And with her in mind I carefully selected products she states black hair need for continual growth.
So the shampoos and conditioners I selected are in the first photo of my post. As you can see L’Oreal claims their product reinforces hair strands and nourishes the hair.
I’m excited to see how my new shampoos and conditioners work on my hair and look forwards to sharing the results with you.
Ooh! And the money I saved can go towards paying an overdue bill.
