Couponer Wannabe

*I am doing this post from my iPhone on the way down to Temple, Oklahoma to see family (no, I'm not driving!!  But I just wanted to warn you in case there are any typos :)

I like to think I have become a couponer.  Not an extreme one.  I still have some learning to do but I wanted to share my recent coupon adventure.  (Tomorrow I will be posting my coupon binder...yes, I have a coupon binder) 

I want to go ahead and put this out there though...I am not the couponer that has her binder at the register digging for coupons and making people wait in line.  My binder is strictly for organizing.  I get all my coupons ready when I make my list so there is no extra waiting and I don't even take my binder to the store.  I hate to be "that" person.

Palmolive Dish Soap – (2) 25 oz. Bottles  – on sale for 2/$5
43-Count Cascade Tabs – on sale for $10.99
105-Count of Downy Sheets - $4.89
120-Load Liquid Downy – on sale for $7.99
150 oz Tide with Downy (April Fresh)    - on sale for $17.99
*I’m going to empty the big bottles into the smaller ones that I already have*

Total Before Coupons: $46.86
$10 off Target Coupon in Their Weekly Ad
.50 off Coupon of 1 Downy Product
$3.00 off Coupon of 3 Tide/Downy Products

 (my prices reflect the sale prices I get with the free Walgreens Rewards Card…why not get one?!?!)
3 Pantene Products (2 Shampoos and 1 Conditioner) – on sale for 3/$10 – 1000 Reward Points (My friends Cristin and Laura are probably reading this cussing me because I bought Pantene.  I promise, time I buy hair products, I'll buy Purology!!)
40 Count Glad Forceflex Odor Shield Trash Bags – on sale for $6.99 (these were around 10 bucks before I used my Walgreens Reward Card - so really, I saved more than it shows below) – 750 Reward Points
2 Colgate Advanced Whitening Toothpaste - $3.99 – Buy 1 Get 1 Free

Total Before Coupons: $20.98
.50 off 1 Colgate Toothpast
$3.00 off 3 Pantene Products

While I'm not a pro or anything and I don't know all the couponing details, I like to think I did a pretty damn good job!!
