March WAGS Savings
Again, there are two pictures because I went twice. The first pic is from last week's deals and the second from this week's deals. There are some great deals going on this week and this month for you to get! My WAGS totals for March so far: Items : 31 Regular Price: 99.49 OOP: 22.29 Savings: 78% RR Left: 4.00
Great Weekly Deals: Garnier Fructis Hair Care 2.99 (use 2.00 ESQ and 1.00 Q from 2/8 or 3/8) = FREE Smart Balance Tubs BOGO @ 2.99 (use 1.00/2 from 2/1) = 1.00 each Coffeemate BOGO @ 2.49 (use 2 1.00 from here) = 2 for .49 Glade Sense and Spray or Lasting Impressions 7.99 (use 4.00 ESQ -this will take off 8.00- and the BOGO Q here or here and the 3.00 or 4.00 Q from 2/8) = 4.00 profit!

MAJOR HUGGIES DEAL!! Buy three packs of Huggies at 10.00 each, use 3 5.00 Q from here. Pay 15.00 OOP, and get back 10.00 RR For more info on this deal, check out Coupon Geek's post here. As I don't buy diapers, I tend to over look the great deals, but this one seems to be a really amazing deal. I thought it would be better explained by someone who does buy diapers.
These are not all of the deals, just the ones I think are great. You can find more listed here.
General: MAN. Q = manufactuer's coupon OOP = out of pocket BOGO = Buy one get one free MIR = Mail In Rebate WYB = when you buy OYNO = On your next order
Walgreens: WAGS = Walgreens WAGS Q = Walgreens store coupon RR = Register Rewards these print off after your reciept and can be used at Walgreens next time. ESC = easy saver catalog ESQ = easy saver coupon ESR = easy saver rebate
CVS: ECB = Extra Care Bucks (just like RR except these are for CVS and you need to use your CVS card in order to get them)
I am a college student here in Chicago, living with my fiancee and trying to survive on a very tight budget. As I attempt to finish school, I've had a hard time finding a part time job, so we are managing on only one income. With our expenses, we try to cut corners as much as possible. Neither of us have a car, we rely on public transportation and good old fashioned walking. We survive without cable (yes, it is possible) and we watch movies at home and find free or discounted entertainment events. I am just learning the fine art of couponing and I hope that many of these tricks will help others.
