One of our readers, Anna Markle, wrote this awesome post on her facebook page. I don't know Anna personally, only from her posts on facebook and that she attended one of my classes back in January and March. Anna just started to coupon in 2011 and look how far she has come!

Thanks Anna for letting us share!

Today I just a wonderful experience couponing at Wegman's. Here's how the transaction went and what I purchased.

50 dbl packs of Reach toothbrushes
31 Degree deodorants
17 Carefree liners
3 bottles of Diet Coke
Gallon of milk (in fridge :)
3 bakery cookies

First I got to the register and the cashier was cashing all my stuff out. I should have calculated how much overage there was going to be from the coupons. I would have gone back and gotten some meat or other necessities, but alas I got milk (not shown) and cookies for part of the overage. Well we got halfway through cashing out the coupons and the total started going into a negative number. Stores do not give cash back for overage. So the cashier called over her manager. The Reach toothbrushes (each coupon said Buy 2, save 2.50). I had 25 coupons for the 50 toothbrushes. Each pack of toothbrushes rang up 99 cents. When you buy 2 the price is $1.98. The manager wouldn't let me have the overage for the coupon. He lowered the coupons to $1.98/2 instead of $2.50/2. That's not bad. I wish I had the overage, but I'm not complaining. They were all free anyways.

So what happened was with the first cashier everything halted in the middle of cashing out my coupons. The manager decided to have me ring out at a separate register with another cashier and void the first transaction. Plus there were people behind me. The lady got a little irritated that I couldn't get overage back from the coupons, but I said I didn't realize there would be so much and I should have gotten other things to cover it.

But anyways, got to the 2nd cashier and everything went fine and smooth. Everyone was smiling. I love Dewitt Wegman's. Granted you need a pair of walking to shoes to treck around the huge mall of a store, but they have so much stock. I didn't even put a dent in the amount of stuff they have there. I certainly did not clear shelves by any means.

My total, before shopper's card and coupons was $173.89. My shopper's card savings were $71.00, I had 3 Wegman's in-store coupons for Health and Beauty and In-store Bakery that was $3. Mfr Coupon savings was $90.70 and double coupon savings was $9.19 (for the liners - I had 50 cent coupons that doubled to $1. Each package was $1.09). I also had 3 $1 off coupons for the Diet Coke, making them free. The Degree deodorants were free because each one was 99 cents and there were $1 off coupons in the 5/22 SS. So by the time all was cashed out and all, my grand total was $7.61 (I think price for milk, cookies, and some money for the liners). But then I used my EBT card because I had a food purchase. Somehow I ended up with them giving me $1.16 back in change. So in all, I only paid $6.45. Total savings of $167.44.

I also have another picture of other things I am donating that I got at Wal-mart and Target. There were free Band-aids and razors. The clothes are mine (lol) that I got for like $1. I had Target web coupons for $3 off Mossimo clothing. They were already on clearance so it brought it down to nothing. I figure I need these clothes for after I have the weight loss surgery. Might as well get them for nearly nothing if I can.

Ok now you've read this and you're thinking "What do you need all those for?" The thing is I don't need any of all that. I only kept the soda, milk and cookies. The rest are being donated to my church. They have teams of people that have been sent down to Joplin, MO and the devastation is horrific. I know I can't go there to build homes or give cash out of pocket that I don't have. But what I can do is Coupon For A Community. They are sending another team down pretty shortly and I want to make sure they have alot of supplies. I can only purchase what I have coupons for. I wish I had 1000s of coupons because the need is so great. My church is helping another church there that survived, expand their food pantry. The people coming in for supplies is never ending. It will take years for them to get on their feet, just like it did when Hurricane Katrina hit. But if my few coupons can bless some people in the community then I feel blessed too.

Anna will be at the Fayetteville Class on June 27th and hopefully at other classes in July if you would like to hear her speak and ask her questions!

Save on Fresh Express Bagged Salad = $1.00 at TOPS?

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

I am a bagged salad lover. I KNOW it is less to buy lettuce and cut it up.. but my time is worth more to me sometimes! So, I LOVE it when this kind of coupon comes along! 


Use ZipCode 77401 if you can't find the coupon in your zip code. Some Tops stores have this on sale this week for 2/$4 so if your store doubles than this is a $1.00 Coupon - woohoo! You wont be able to use this on regular classic iceberg salads... but if you have never tried the other kinds - this is your chance! I am a lover of all kinds of lettuce now!

For the CNY area - TOPS is the only store that I have seen to carry this in the past - you may want to check with your local store before you print it - but I am sure this one won't last long!

Thanks, Iamthatlady!
