It’s OK Not Saving 90%

Saving 90%

I’ve certainly done better, but I’m still pretty happy with today’s trip. Saving a good amount of money on several high dollar items in the same trip can be a challenge. Some of these were either on sale or I had store coupons getting ready to expire in the next couple of days and I wanted to be sure I used them being that they are products I use regularly. It’s OK not to save 90% every time you go shopping, in fact it’s unrealistic.

Wags:      3 12 packs of coke – Total  $10.70 on sale … Paid  $1.70 oop.

I used (3) $3.00 RR’s I received from the Cottonelle deal.

Publix:    Everything else – Total  $187.92 … Paid  $63.39 oop … Saved  $124.53

The Whiska’s cat food was the last rain check I had from a previous sale
That not only allowed me to get more food for the shelter but it also gave
me a nice overage.

Later I will be making a post on what happens when you don’t pay attention to what you’re doing. Instead of saving, that trip cost me money!

New to the Coupon-Wizards?

Are you new to The Coupon Wizards? I’m a one woman blog, but I work tirelessly, day in and day out, to find you the best deals. Both couponing deals and online bargains! This isn’t Extreme Couponing, it’s Effective Couponing! There is a method to my madness as well. Not only do I find sales & deals for you, but in doing so, I find sales & deals for me too. It’s a win win 😉 Plus I’m able to teach others to do this at the same time, which I love!

I started following The Coupon Wizards after doing some research on the subject, with a little prodding from a friend, and coming across them on Facebook. I was hooked immediately & started to learn quickly. Mostly out of necessity, but also because I loved everything about it. The organization, the researching, the putting together of deals, but most of all, the savings! I was saving my family money to pay those bills & be able to eat all at the same time. This blog was a life saver; literally! In no time at all, I was a blogger myself on the site. My husband has since found a job, but this is now mine and I love, love, love it and hope you will to. Let me know what you think in the comments.


  1. Fantastic job, Valerie!!! I’d be thrilled with that!!!
