I have used coupons for 34 years now. Sometimes I have been more diligent than others. I am now on a fixed income, so sales and coupons have become more important to me. I like the challenge of sitting at the table on Sundays, going through the sale papers and clipping coupons to go with them. I also have member cards to all the local stores. I like to keep track of how much I save.
I was curious as to how well I have done in June so far. The stores in the area have been having a prescription war lately and have been offering $25 in free merchandise for transferring a prescription. By transferring prescriptions, this month I have saved $200.00. Using my coupons, I added another $236.91. That's a total of $436.91! That's not taking into consideration how much I have saved by getting things on sale. I don't think I've ever had such a good month.
I have bought cleaning and beauty supplies, linens, comforters, towels and pet supplies. I have bought a lot of items that I will give as presents to my daughters. This a great because I don't have to do a mad rush during the holidays buying or wrapping gifts. I can sit back and enjoy the holidays more.
I probably won't have another month quite as good as this one. But I know I had fun shopping this month.
