I love finding awesome deals and saving lots of money. I am a coupon clipper, store flyer comparer, and plain old cheap skate!!!! I pinch every penny that I can. That way I can give my kids as much as possible (without spoiling them too much!!!)

Today I did my weekly "Free" shopping. This is where I go to certain stores that I have coupons for to get free stuff.

On my list was Walgreen's and CVS.

I started by going to CVS for just soup!!!! It wasn't quite free but pretty close to it. .29 cents a can.

I bought 20 cans.

Now I try to avoid aisle shopping, because that is when I get into trouble. Today though, I am glad I did.

To my shock, my CVS still had Valentines day candy. It was all 90% off!!! I couldn't believe my eyes!!! The best part was that there was ALOT left!!!

Now, all though Valentines Day is long over, I haven't seen my 3 Nieces, 1 Nephew, and 5 Cousins that I buy for every year. I also have a 4 yr old, so for holidays, he doesn't care what type of candy it is, as long as it's for him!!!!

So I figured I would stock up, and boy did I!!!!

After I hit CVS and cleaned them out!!!! I went to Walgreen's and got some more stuff. They didn't have anymore Valentines Day stuff, but I figured that was for the best.

I went shopping with my Sister and her eyes were bugging out watching the amount of stuff I bought.

My Husband was the same way when I got home!!!

Here is the list of stuff I bought, and the pictures of everything. Once I list it all, then I will tell you the price!!!!

Some of the items are missing from the pictures because I had to share with my Sister and Mother!!!

2 Hubba Bubba V-Day Cards with candy (18 per box)
3 Dum Dum V-day Cards with candy (28 per box)
5 Sponge Bob V-Day Cards with candy (30 per box)

8 V-day Cards with Lolly pops (30 per bag)

10 Bags of Cherry Pops (15 per bag)

3 Valentines Strip Pops (14 per strip)

1 Package Heart Slinky's ( 8 per bag)

11 Snoopy Whitman Samplers

1 Pair of Love Handcuffs

30 Sweat heart boxes

2 Mad-libs Valentines (24 per box)

20 Cans of Chicken Noodle Soup

8 Right Guard Deodorant

2 Reach Toothbrushes

2 Starbucks Frappuccinos

2 Olay Quench Body Washes

4 Dentyne Gum 12 piece packs

Now before using coupons, getting discounts and rebates my total would have been-


My actual total was



Now wait till tomorrow when I hit Big Y's Buy 1 Get 2 free sale with my large coupon supply!!! That should be real fun!!!!

Wow! Pretty impressive, but what did you say you were going to do with all that candy?? I'd be in big trouble with all of it in my house (pretty soon I'd look like...well, you know.) Thanks for following, and I'm following back.
