Sunday Savings

Yesterday was a fabulous day.

After a tremendous morning church service preached by Bro. Kelly Howard, the girls and I headed to Target to return a few things. We then walked across the street to the Dollar Tree to buy our newspapers (we bought 5). Since my sister is getting married in November, we knew we'd need MANY Michael's ads/coupons. Then we walked back to Target and ate lunch there while I clipped coupons. There was a Target coupon for $3 off two Revlon beauty tools, along with a $1 manufacturer's coupon.

My purchase at Target included Clorox toilet bowl cleaner, some personal care items, emery boards and Revlon tweezers. The regular price of all items was $23.00. With the sales, clearance item, and Revlon coupons, I paid $11.96 = 48% overall savings!

Then we went to Michael's where each of the girls purchased an item for the cake baking session, using their own 50% off coupon.

My Michael's purchase was 5 "slice of cake" cake boxes, 10 spools of ribbon for hair bows; crocheted stickers for a friend's honeymoon album, and a set of clear stamps. The stampers were the only thing regular price, and they were $1. Original price of all items was $12.99, and I paid $6.50 = 50% overall savings. Yeah!!!

That was our Sunday afternoon. How about you? Are you having fun saving? Drop me a line and let me know. I love to receive comments.

Wow! That sounds like a great and fun shopping day.

Thanks for your comment at my blog. It's a tricky line - how many great deals to grab. I am so glad we can all learn from each other online though - I wouldn't have known where to start otherwise!

Have a great day. :)
