The Power of Coupons to get Freebies

I Got All These Items for Free!!

I have recently become a member of several coupon blogs and have been learning a lot about using coupons to reduce your grocery bills. Check out these two blogs to learn more about couponing http://www.dealseekingmom.com/ and http://www.thefreebieblogger.com/. Regular updates on the blogs inform you of the latest and best deals. One of the best features of http://www.dealseekingmom.com/ is the "Deals of the Week" for WalMart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens. Each week, the author informs you of coupons you can use, with products at regular or sales price to get huge savings, in addition to many free items. I have been saving coupons for months now and decided to put my coupon use to the test. I got all the items in the picture above for FREE!!! Here is the breakdown:

(11) Johnson and Johnson Bath Bars - retail for $0.98 each (used 11 coupons I purchased for approx. $1.00 on Ebay)

(3) HEB Infant Pain Relief Drops - retail for approx. $5.50 each (used coupons I received at the HEB Baby & Child Expo)

(1) HEB Gas Relief Drops - retail for approx. $3.25 (used coupons I received at the HEB Baby & Child Expo) (I'll be giving this to Kristin)

(2) Huggies Pull Ups Flushable Wipes - retail approx. $1.64 each (Printable coupon - $2.00 off any Huggies Diaper Product http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=qinjblu9829492&bt=vi&o=57463&c=HG&p=7gaQhPFm )

(4) Kotex Pantiliners (small package) - retail $1.00 each (Used coupon for $1.00 off any Kotex product)
