About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Costco, Ingles, CVS, Staples, and Old Tyme Country Store Sales Week of April 13-19

This trip to Costco was primarily to pick up supper items for Growth Group.  We had a cookout on Sunday evening and I grilled hot dogs while everyone else brought sides.  I'm pretty sure everyone in our GG can cook!  We always have the best food.  :) 
My total was $39.61.

My total at Ingles was $41.75 and I saved $30.73.  Most of the snack items I'm putting back for our vacation in May.  It will be here before I know it!

I needed more milk and cheese but I didn't feel like going to Earth Fare (it's only a 20 minute drive) or Happy Cow Creamery (that's more like 45 minutes) so I stopped at The Old Tyme Country Store that is right up the road.  They carry the Happy Cow Products. I know to some of you 20 or 45 minutes would be nice.  But I'm extremely spoiled with a huge variety of stores within one mile from me.   My total was $40.48.  All their items are anywhere from $1-3 higher than going to the Farm but once you take in consideration gas mileage to the Farm, it ended up being about the same price if not saving a little bit. 

This was a fun trip to CVS.  I spent a whopping 12 cents and I saved $37.44 and I received $3.49 back in ECB's.  I used $12 in ECB's on this transaction and $5/$15 CVS coupon along with $8 in manufacturer's coupons.

Staples had these markers Free after Rebate and the Go Fish cards were on clearance.  These will be great items in Bradley's Easter basket.  My total was only $2.64 because I used a $4 Staples ink recycling rebate.  And I'll get $4 back from this purchase once the markers rebate comes in the mail.

One quick stop into Ingles last night to pick up potatoes.  I got off easy this year by just having to bring mashed potatoes to Easter lunch.  The organic potatoes were on clearance for $2.99.  I used a Free coupon for the Purex No Sort and 50 cent coupon on the creamer.  My total was $5.21 and I saved $4.98.
 
I made one quick stop to the Costco in Spartanburg for sour cream.  A group of ladies from church will be feeding tacos to the homeless on Saturday and my item to bring was sour cream.  I spent $8.98.  I chose the Spartanburg store because I did a quick mystery shop while I was there.  It didn't take me more than 30 minutes and I earned $15 for doing it!
 
My total grocery bill was $138.79  I'm so happy that I stayed under my $150 weekly budget!
