Tami thinks you need to watch me work it.

When I posted my coupon clipping post a couple weeks ago, I felt like some of you were impressed, but skeptical.  Like maybe you still didn’t think it was worth your time?

So, can somebody hold my glass of wine while I show you this?

Ok, thanks.  Now.  Just sit back, relax, and watch me work it…







That stuff?  That’s all stuff I got for FREE, just this week.  Just to clarify, that’s 2 Olay Body Washes, 2 Gillette Body Washes, 1 Rimmel Mascara, and 1 Johnson’s Bath Buddies suddzing bar.

I also got a couple free things from blogs:


I got this Bible in the mail yesterday, and I was so excited!  I signed up for it because I actually don’t have a Bible, and hey, it was free!  When it came though, I couldn’t believe my eyes.  It’s exactly how it looks in that picture, the cover is leather like and it is two shades of pink!  The box says it retails for $24.99, and if I write a review of it I can be entered for a chance to win a personal assistant!

I also won this bracelet ($81 value) on Theta Mom's blog:

Alexandani2 Shut the front door!  I can’t wait until it comes!  Yesterday when Shawn saw the fabulous Bible and I told him about the bracelet, he accused me of farting feathers again.  All I can say is, I guess he’s still not praying hard enough for that flat screen.

Ok, just in case you’re still not impressed, here are a few more things.  I did have to pay for these, but not much!

04740031436_220x220_aAfter coupons and register rewards, I got this razor for 99 cents!  I gave it to my dad though because I have enough razors to last Shawn until the Armageddon.


After a manufacturer’s coupon and Walgreens store coupon, I got 3 cans of this tomato sauce for 17 cents!  That’s 17 cents for all 3 people!

What?  What’s that?  You’re not impressed with toiletries and tomato sauce?  You want clothes?  Fine.  I’ll give you clothes.


I was looking for some spring clothes for the girls for spring break or for their Easter basket.  I happened upon these graphic tees at Old Navy.  Alivia has been wanting a Girl Scout t-shirt, so the first one is obviously for her.  The second one is for Lainey.  I’m taking NO credit for the Celtics t-shirt, so if she doesn’t like it I hope Shawn can fit into a 5T.


on735980-01vliv01Oh yeah.  How much were they?  Are you ready?  The grand total with tax and shipping…

Wait for it…

Wait for it…


$1.06!  Booyah!  I told you I was going to work it.

I just emailed you that you need to share your couponing skills with me- your coupon powers are seriously amazing!

Teach me, teach me!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm now stalking you, hoping your saving skills will somehow rub off on me!

Hillary said...

1. I totally believed you!
2. I look through every flyer but can't find the same deals you do.
3. Think it's weird that you didn't own a bible, since you gave me mine!
4. Seriously, you stole those shirts, didn't you?

Seriously 1.06 on two shirts, how did you do that? I am in awe.
I completely believed you though in the first place. You seem like if you put your mind to it, you can do anything:)

Tracie said...

I'm impressed! And I'm also very lazy with the coupons.

Taylor-Made Wife said...

You're my hero.

Amy said...

Tami! Please sign me up for coupons and free shit! I want the free, whatever...but I just can't muster the energy to research, clip, store, and remember coupons!

I'm a lost cause.
