Printable Coupon List

I know we don't post a ton of printable coupons on here but I thought I'd take a minute and give you some links to the main sites we use.

Go here to visit (the main website people know about).

Then there is Red Plum printables here.

Smart Source also has printables available here.

A master list of printable coupons is available here.

A new website I just learned about (thanks Bucktown Bargains) is called Coupons, Inc and is just a huge list of printable bricks coupons (coupons from the site). I have only spent a few minutes on it and am in love so far. It is a lot of coupons that are not on the website, but once you fill out a form or hit print, are linked back to that website. Go here to visit and print today!

If you average all of them together since I didn't have all of the same coupon, I paid $1.67 per two pack, or $0.84 per deodorant.

To the Target shopper behind me today.....

The poor lady behind me at Target today was NOT happy with me. I just had to snap a quick pic when she laid her head down for about 5 full minutes before finally taking her cart to the front of the cash register and sitting down while I finished. I didn't know what to say to her :(

Just a heads up, you do not need to buy a paper this Sunday!

The aftermath of preparing coupons on Sunday evening. I must admit that I tidied up a bit before taking the picture.

Elizabeth Walgreen's 5/23

(2) $1.99 - Cheerio's 14 oz
- $1/2 from 5/2 SS insert (made them $1.49 each)

$3.49 - Blue Diamond Almonds 6 oz
$0.00 - Blue Diamond Almonds 6 oz (they were B1G1 free)

(2) $2.99 - Renuzit Odor Neutralizer
(2) $0.00 - Renuzit Odor Neutralizer (they were B1G1 free)

$4.99 - Noxzema Razors
$0.00 - Noxzema Razors (B1G1 free)
- (4) $2/1 printable or 5/23 RP insert for some (made them $0.07 each)

$0.33 - Caramel (filler - this was actually quite delicious - devoured seconds after picture was taken)

Total (before coupons): $23.88
Used $4.50 in RR's from last week

Total after coupons and RR's: $3.56

I did not receive any RR's for this trip. I know it goes against the rule of "rolling" RR's, but I just used one here to get my cost down (I had 5 of the $4.50 RR's). I should also note that I could have gotten 4 of the Noxzema bikini shavers and had overage (a money maker) instead of also buying the more expensive razors, but I didn't feel like worrying about beepage. Below are the deals I did not get to do because of product availability. I can't find any of the colgate coupons so I'm not sure if I will do it or not, but most importantly my Walgreen's was already out of the contact solution last night. I will go on a hunt for this - it is something I use so it is an amazing deal.

  • $2.99 RR wyb Goody Ouchless Barrette or Flex Tip Headband at $2.99 free
  • $2 RR wyb Colgate Total Advanced or Enamel Strength, 4 oz., at $2.99 ea
    -.75/1 Colgate Total Toothpaste SS 5/02 (coupon is in Spanish) or
    -$1 off Colgate Total Toothpaste 4 oz or larger April All You
    (makes it FREE)
    -.50/1 Colgate Toothpaste, 6 oz +, SS 5/23
  • $7.99 RR wyb Complete Multi-Purpose Solution, 12 oz., at $7.99 ea
    -$2 off Complete Multi-Purpose Solution 12 oz RP 5/16
    (FREE plus $2 overage!)

Elizabeth CVS 5/23

Ok, so my CVS trip yesterday was a littly wonky - but it's my fault. I'm first going to show the transaction I originally did, and then explain what changed.

(3) $1.66 - Kellogg's Rice Krispies 9 oz
$4.49 - Kellogg's Rice Krispies 9 oz
- (2) $1/2 printable (made them $1.87 each if you average out the price with the expensive one)

(2) $4.00 - Old Spice Odor Blocker Body Wash
- B1G1 free coupon from 5/2 P&G insert (after this coupon and ECB's, was a $4 money maker)

$0.48 - M&M's pretzel (filler)

Total without coupons: $19.43

Used $6 in ECB's from last week

Total after coupons and ECB's: $6.16
Received $8 in ECB's from Old Spice body wash

So notice that I lost money on this transaction (sounds funny to say that because I used to call that "spending" money). I spent $6.16 oop plus $6 in ECB's but only got $8 in ECB's back. I knew something was wrong since I had only planned on spending $4 in ECB's, but I waited until I got to my car to figure out what happened. It was the cereal! I did not realize it was a limit of 3 at that price. I had enough coupons to get up to somewhere around 30 boxes and was pretty excited about it, but only got 4 this trip because I couldn't find everything I wanted ECB-wise and wanted to wait. Well I was conflicted when I figured out it was the cereal. I decided to take the plunge and try to return it since it is a HUGE price difference. Luckily the cashier I took it to understood my dilemma and did not make a big deal out of it. I gave him the receipt and the cereal and had no idea what kind of refund I'd be getting since I used coupons. Luckily, he was able to select which cereal to return and gave me back the full $4.49 back on my debit card. I feel like I cheated CVS because of the coupon, but it was only $0.50 off a box so I'm probably making a big deal out of nothing. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

So after my return I spent $1.67 oop plus $6 in ECB's (you can't get those back), which is $7.67, and then I got back $8 in ECB's. So I feel MUCH better about my transaction now.

I should note that I had completely planned on doing the Neutrogena cosmetics ECB deal using the information below from Southern Savers. Unfortunately I could not find ANY cosmetics below $7.99 at my CVS. I might try again later in the week.

  • $2 ECB wyb $10 any Neutrogena Cosmetics, starting at $3.49 Limit 1
    -$3 off Neutrogena Cosmetics June All You Magazine
  • **Deal Idea**
    Buy: (3) Neutrogena Cosmetics $3.49 ea
    Use: (3) -$3 off Neutrogena Cosmetics
    Total Due: $1.47
    Get Back: $2 ECB, makes it
    FREE plus profit!
