Gotta Love Savings and Free

About 6 weeks ago I really started trying to match up coupons to save money and get free samples. Wow it is amazing what kinds of sales, samples and free items you can get!

Yesterday I went to the store to get some items we use on a regular basis while they were going off sale this week. With MVP and coupons I spent $32.23 after saving $32.96! I have been getting the Sunday paper and putting them into "sections" on items we use then matching them to where/when they are on sale. It really makes a huge difference with B no longer going out of town our grocery bill had gone WAY up. Cat food, dog food, treats (for said cat and dog), cleaning supplies the list goes on and on and you can save on just about everything! Last week I got 2 bags of cat treats I had a B1G1 and $1 plus they were already on sale so I got both for $.40 seriously?? 20 CENTS per bag!

Below are the FREE items I got in the mail during April... and I have a ton more on the way so I will probably do this at the beginning of each month.

Here goes!

2 samples of Breathe Right Strips
Measuring Tape
Sample of  Garnier moisturising serum and a $2.00 off coupon

3 Atkins bars (they were so yummy!) and 2 coupons for $1.00 off each

Free bar of Shea Butter Soap and a $5.00 off coupon
Closys mouthwash and a $2.00 off coupon

GEVALIA coffee and a $1.00 coupon

Bayer Aspirin (20ct) Bottle and a $2.00 off coupon
Invisible Glass (4) with several coupons & Mail In rebates

(picture above would not rotate for whatever reason)
A Jiffy Recipe book ... SERIOUSLY some amazing recipes in there!
Excellent Tea Company (3) Tea Bags

Other awesome Freebies for April...

Domino’s Artisan Pizza - FREE- Yes that is correct a FREE pizza :)

Several different companies did cards this past month so I got 4 cards for FREE and you know as well as I do running up town to pick up a birthday/ anniversary/ mothers day/ Wedding or Shower card can easily cost close to 5 bucks each.

$2 Amazon MP3 Code so I got ...
Luke Bryan - Do I for my phone
Keith Urban - For you (also for my phone)

Where do you find the best deals at?


  1. I make alot of Jiffy muffins. They are cheap and taste great. I see your sister is rubbing off on you! I always use coupons.

  2. Wow! You did good, girl! I've tried couponing a little bit but haven't really devoted enough time to make it effective. I want to do better though!

  3. How awesome, I love free & using coupons. How doy ou get all the free samples in the mail? Websites?

  4. You rock! I need tips from you! Or maybe just motivation ;)

  5. How do you get free samples in the mail?
