So today was double coupon day at Bloom, up to $1.99. I'm not sure if you clip the coupons or not, but that's pretty good. Usually stores will only double coupons up $.99 so I made sure that I took advantage of the situation! The catch was you could only have twenty coupons per transaction and per person. So what did I do? Got my lovely parents to meet me at the store so they could "buy" one of my transactions.
I'm sure you all have seen the TLC show "Extreme Couponing." I am definitely not a contender for the show. That show actually made me feel bad about the savings I didn't get. I should have walked away with free stuff or things that they paid me to have!
So what do you think.....
Would you pay $155 for this? Allegedly, my savings was $125.35. I spent my lunch break checking out the sale ad for Bloom and comparing it to the coupons that I had. I made an extreme rookie mistake. Bloom had Herbal Essence on sale and I had Garnier Fructis coupons; so based on the picture on the coupon, I thought they were the same :( Oh well, I have no shame....the cashier let me run and get the right one haha.
Another rookie mistake:
It was like playing Tetris in my freezer trying to get everything to fit! Alex is pretty stoked for the things that I bought....it's not too often that you see coupons for chia seeds or spinach...
Has a TV show made your accomplishments look like chump change?
