Introduction from Iva Jean (Part 1)

February 5, 2010


Welcome to my blog! I've always tried to save a few cents here and there. But, I do not have a garage full of 1000 boxes of cereal or 100 jars of peanut butter! To assist my friends and others by sharing tricks on how to save on daily purchases and other items, I've created this blog. I hope that you enjoy reading this.

I've always saved money on internet store purchases, as well as purchases from the brick and mortar stores, but have learned to save a little more through research.

Since my retirement from teaching last year, I've taken advantage of my free time by couponing more. I've always used various coupons throughout the years, but not on a regular basis. Since I have more free time now, I REALLY try to research other savings blogs and form a plan for my purchases. I have really had a lot of fun with this. You have to have a plan to really SAVE big. Through blog posts to follow, I will be sharing some of the strategies that I have used.

To start with I will share some savings that I obtained today from a local store.

* Tide Stain Release Spray, Reg. price: $4.99, Sale price: $3.99, Coupon $3.00, Final price: .99
*Tide Stain Release Liquid, Reg. price: $ 4.99, Sale price: $3.99, Coupon $3.00, Final price: .99
*Hershey Candy Chocolate Reg. price: $1.69, Sale price: .99 , Coupon BOGO, Final price .50ea. for two candies.
*Excedrin , Regular price $4.99, Sale price: $1.99, Coupon for free Excedrin (up to $4.99 value),
Final price: FREE

Total price of these items before discounts: $18.35
Total price of these items after discounts: $$2.97

These are just a few of the deals that I made today.

Thanks for reading my first post! I will be back with more details on more of my savings, as well as tricks to getting a good deal.

Talk to you later!

  1. My questions are: where did you get those coupons and which store had the sale? Congrats on saving BIG!

  2. Dean, I just sent you an email to your FB acct. It was CVS, some coupons were fromt the Sunday paper and others were printable.
