Just to encourage those of you who are new around here that HUGE savings can be had when you really watch it, I thought I’d run a few successful shopping trips from some readers who scored big last week!
This is courtesy of Nikki. Nikki’s goal each week is to creatively coupon enough so that she can get diapers for cheap or free! How? By using a coupon on a free item she gets overage which goes towards her diaper purchase. She had a hue haul this week at CVS and here are the details in case you want to duplicate it.
