Ok, I didn't want to keep writing if it wouldn't post.Embarrassed

So you didn't find a deal? You didn't find any good coups in your publications? Well, take your grocery list and look online for any coups that may help your shopping trip be cheaper. If you're buying Bigelow Tea, go on their website, google Bigelow coupons, etc. This seriously can't hurt at all.

Ok, you didn't find nothin??Angry Fine! Well at least rack up with rewards by shopping at places with rewards card or using Savings Star (it's like couponing, but backwards. You buy the items and the coupon amount goes into your SavingStar account and you can use that for Amazon GC and etc. Go to www.savingstar.com or DL their app. Smile

I loooove CVS because I am always racking up Extrabucks (which is free money) and I usually have coupons for their sales AND my CVS card is connected to my Savings Star. (and there is one walking distance from my job and house)

I'm sure there are more and plenty of apps like Retail Me Not for more retail type stores. www.retailmenot.com


What about the coupons to the side? Those are for if you see a really good deal for something that you usually don't buy, but something that you could use. Like if you never buy Bounty just because you have always bought Brawny. Yet you see that Bounty is on sale for 50cent a roll, plus you have a coupon for $1 off 2, while Brawny is it's usual price. It would be worth it to get the free 2 rolls of Bounty in this situation. But don't end up like this:


You really don't want to buy what you don't need. It is ok to have hauls (lots of items) for things that your family actually goes through quickly, like soap and toilet paper and certain food items. But once it gets where you are super stocked and you're still buying, I believe at that point you should share the wealth. Bless somebody else in you family with some necessities or donate to charity.

Last tip: If it's not on sale and you don't have a coup or some kind of savings, don't buy it. I understand that this is unavoidable, but if you keep this mindset, more often than not you will stick to it. If you keep telling yourself this, you will make exceptions when it's really important. I do this for dining out and shopping too. If I'm going to restaurant with friends, I'm off the computer to see what is the specials at that place and are there any coupons lying around. If they have a sign up email which earns points or gives coupons, I sign up. If i'm online shopping I try to use a cashback site that earns points or cash or something. SavingStar does this and so does my Southwest Airline (I'm trying to earn free tickets lol). Bank of America does Cash back deals on their DEBIT cards, go online and check it out or call your bank.

That's all the tips I can think of right now. I'm tied, chirren

Good luck and blessings to you in being a good steward of what you have been blessed withClap Can't wait to hear everyone else's tips! I'm definitely no expert!!

Yeah, she only used coupons during sales and getting money back since she saved so much. They didn't bar her from the store but she cant use a coupon and she's not eligible for deals...so basically she ain't going lol

Target shoppers should download the app "Cartwheel"

I use it all the time

For example, right now with this app Revlon Colorstay is 20% off

Find you a manufacturers coupon and you're good to go!

This is Targets own lil coupon book. It has coupons for everything in store. 

You can earn rewards. 

Just be sure the cashier scans the barcode on your app *after* your items are rung up. 
 
Not before, after your items are rung up and BEFORE you swipe your credit/ or debit card.

Basically, it's not unheard of cashiers not knowing how to complete transactions with the app. Although this isn't a third party app....this is Target's ishLOL

I go to the one by 161st, maybe it's just me but i feel like they don't have sh*t. Maybe it's cause is suck at shopping and i never have a coupon book.

I used to get them from the paper, now I just buy the coupons..saves me a lot of time and money

I have over a year supply of tampons, pantyliners, shaving cream, razors, shower gel, and lotion. It makes me happy

Oh also 8 deodorants

I also coupon at Bath and Body works for those who don't know lol.
