First of all, special shout out to my friends Indira and Siobhan!!! I know you guys are stalking my blog. :)
I don't know how many people watch the show Extreme Couponing on TLC, but that show drives me bonkers!! It's basically a show about how some people spend their lives collecting coupons and get $2000 worth of groceries for $2.
Yes, it's organized hoarding. Crazy lady, do you REALLY need 53 bottles of Maalox? Maybe, because you got 100 LBS OF CHEESE!!!!
I despise that show and everything it stands for. However, on a peaceful Sunday afternoon, I realized that, maybe sometimes, I could be an extreme couponer as well.
This is my loot from Rite Aid:
So I got over $40 worth of products for $1.8 after tax. Not too shabby. Oh, and because I got the 2 Revlon beauty tools, I got $4 Up Rewards back!! So in summary, the haul costed me -$2.
The Covergirl products were 40% off and I had $25 in Up Rewards (like you get money get when you buy certain things). The receipt said "hearing aid" because I had a $10 Up Rewards but the register couldn't read it (it was too wrinkled), so the very nice cashier found some random $2 off coupon in the book and scanned it 5 times.
I'm really satisfied with the haul because these are some products I've been eyeing for a while now. I REFUSE to pay full prize for drugstore products because I know sooner or later they'd go on sale.
Some classic goodies I got:
--Cover Girl e/s trio in Shimmering Sand
--Cover Girl e/s trio in Golden Sunset
--Cover Girl e/s quad in Coffee Shop
I hope this post has inspired some of you to start taking advantage of the sales your local drugstores have.
Just don't go crazy on me, ok? Don't come back and tell me that you got 8000 packs of yogurt just because they were on sale for $0.1 each, got that?
Have a great week guys!
