PhotobucketWhy Be Frugal?

I consider frugality an art form and a religious conviction. I learned about paying cash for purchases, recycling and reusing just about everything and being generous to friends and those in need from my parents.

My faith instructs me all things are gifted by God and so I am compelled to be a good steward of my gifts. [The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man. Psalm 115:16]

Great CVS trip today!

I just had to share my great trip to CVS today!

First I scanned my CVS card and received a coupon for 25% of my entire purchase!

I bought 2 CVS brand Skin care/moisturizers and earned $10 Extrabucks
Bought 1 toothbrush & got 1 free
Bought 2 single size M&M's & got 1 free

I used:
$1.00 off coupon for Aleve
$1.00 off coupon for large bag Pretzel M&M's
$1.00 off coupon for Maybelline Mascara

I got a twin pack of Nice N Easy Hair color for $3.49!! (on closeout)

I'm going to use my $10 Extrabucks next week to apply toward "Spend $10 on Maybeline products, get 4EB) That will be like paying $1 for $15 worth of products!

Have you had a great shopping experience lately?

Total before discounts and coupons: $92.38. I paid: 54.92!!

I haven't been shopping for a while and had quite a list when i went to Walgreens. Got a lot of 2 for one sales. All in all, I saved $73 combing mfd coupons with Walgreen coupons. and I'm set now with housewares and cosmetics. And the best thing is I purchased a $20 phone card with a coupon and got one free. Lots of minutes here when i call my Mom or daughter out of state.
