WAGs World! Party Time! Excellent!

I started my Thanksgiving shopping on Wednesday!  Have you started?  This consisted of spending about 30 minutes on Tuesday night searching the ads to see who had the best deals on things I needed.  And I also spent time clipping and organizing coupons.

I have a stack of coupons for the grocery store, which I plan to hit tomorrow because my local Shop N Save is having $10 Thursday (Spend $50 and get $10 off).  I usually go in and buy only items I have coupons for and which will total up to $50, and then I get out of there!  I’m hoping to save at at least an extra $10 in coupons alone tomorrow.

I also have a stack of coupons for Target this year.  Believe it or not, now that they are carrying groceries they do have a few items with better prices than the other places.  But I’m not going to tell you what they are!

Today I grabbed the stack for Walgreens and made a special trip in before heading to work. Here’s what I bought:

1 4.5 oz. box of Cheezits at .79 cents on sale

1 10 oz. box of Wheat Thins $2.99 on sale

1 9.5 oz. box of Tricuits $2.01 on sale

2 Boxes of Keebler Club Crackers $2.50 each on sale

2 Cans of Emerald Almonds $5.99 on sale/and buy one get one free

2 Boxes of Ziploc Bags $2.00 each on sale

2 French’s Onions $1.99 each on sale

I had coupons for all of these products, including a WAGs coupon for the onions and 2 coupons from the Sunday paper for the onions as well.  Since I had to buy 2 of some items to satisfy my coupon, that helped equal out the number of coupons I had so I could save more on the onions. At Walgreens, you can’t have more coupons than the number of items you have.

Here’s what I saved:
.98 cent WAGS coupon
$15.73 from sales
$4.75 in regular coupons
$21.46 total saved

I spent just $20.08! So, I actually saved more than I spent! I love it when that happens.

What specials are you taking advantage of for Thanksgiving? In 2008, this was the time of year I started couponing and it’s what convinced me to keep doing it!
