Following the Example of Other Savers

May 13th, 2008 at 03:46 pm

Sometimes I feel like that V8 commercial when they knock their heads and say "I could have had a V8". I was reading moneysavingmom.com and she talked about her CVS spending and others she knows working the extracare bucks program.

I've frequently thought why bother to work the program for a few drugstore items? She had an answer to my question. She mentioned things like groceries, getting just about everything including gifts for a daughter's birthday party and seasonal items. Usually, I would think the prices to high, but using extra care bucks combined with sales and coupons makes the prices comparable or even better than the grocery store and even Walmart. I'm finally getting good enough that things are starting to rollover and my out of pocket is around a $1 or less. I can put the extrabucks into buying cereal, salmon, and tuna on sale and milk, eggs, ect not on sale.

Using slickdeals.net (a site I found out about on savingadvice), the drugstore forum, I found a computer coupon for $3/2 boxes of Kellogs cereal and with a price of 2/$5 my final cost is $1 a box and then rolling over my extracare bucks makes it free and leaves me with lots more bucks left for staples like the milk, eggs, tuna and salmon. If I can save $40-50 a month on groceries it would help my spending plan alot. If others can successfully do it so can I.

I'm still learning. Watching others as they share their saving adventures opens new doors of thought for me. Thanks to you all!

PS I found a $5 bill on the ground as I was buying my $1 ticket for the Megamillions. What does this mean for my luck? Update tomorrow. LOL

    It does help to get ideas from others. You just find what you like and tweak it to fit your lifestyle.
