These are my extreme couponing deals for the last couple weeks.
This first picture is my deals from price matching at Walmart. I didn't have any coupons.

The Tabasco I actually bought at Walmart for $1 and I had a $1 off coupon. So it was Free. WooHoo my first freebie ;-D
This one is another trip to CVS. I received a CVS coupon for $3 off the purchase of three boxes of kleenex.
3 boxes of Kleenex $4.47 minus $3 coupon and stacking a $1 manufacture coupon on top, this trip cost me 47 cents plus 4 cents tax .51
Now some may think I'm using that much in gas to get these deals. But actually I hardly ever make a special trip. I pass most of these stores on a daily basis, or when I go to my mothers.
So I start doing my homework as soon as I receive my sales papers, and have everything ready for when I will be going by one of the stores.
Now sometimes I do miss out on a great deal because I don't hit the stores as soon as I receive the sales papers.
This sale had already been going on for 5 days so it was pretty picked over on some of the things I wanted, but I did great.
Albertsons was having a sale where you spend $15.00 on participating products and save $5.00 instantly.

Which now brings it down to $14.00
I had $9.00 in coupons
Brings it down to $5.00 + .41 cents in tax

Pretty cool Huh?
When extreme couponing, you have to change the way you buy groceries. You want to buy when the item is at it's lowest price, and use your coupon then. Before I was buying when it first went on sale. Then I noticed that most things go on sale again before the coupon expires, and it's usually at a lower price.
You also want to buy in bulk and stock up on items you use regularly like, tooth paste, shampoo, detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, kleenex. And for me can tomatoes, and certain types of soup. Cereal is another good one, but we don't eat much cereal. But I have seen it as low as $1.18 a box when adding a coupon, and cereal is not cheap.
If you have any questions please let me know, I'm still learning but I will be more then happy to help in any way.
