Using Coupons and Promotion Codes to get the best deals

Not long ago, I decided it was time to take charge of what I spent on everyday items. Our Government keeps telling us things are going to get better, the prices at the pump are going to come down, but are they really? In some places, gas is well over $4 a gallon. I personally don’t think we could handle gas to get much higher and survive.

Therefore, I have decided to get into couponing, and finding those crazy deals. A few months back, I was doing coupons; however, I was wasting more money than I was saving, because I didn’t know how to properly save, so I hit up Google. I started searching and I came upon a wealth of information. I found everything right in front of me, with the sales going on at my favorite stores, and which coupons I should pair up with the certain items, to get the best deals. I was in heaven! I know I can do this know, I also came across another site called!

How many of you love shopping online? How many of you often find yourself hitting up Google to find different promotional codes, or even free shipping? I know I do, one thing I dislike the most about shopping online is those jacked up shipping charges.

Recently, one of my favorite stores to shop at is Wal-Mart. I guess you can say it is my favorite, because we do not have much to choose from unless I was to head to Memphis. Let me tell you about the deal I got today at Wal-Mart!

I got 4 packs of Ivory Bath soap each pack has 3 bars. 2 packs of Expo Dry Erase markers the ones that come with 2 in the pack, 1 trial size degree deodorant for women, 4 packs of carefree party-liners, 2 trial size aqua fresh extreme whitening tooth paste, 1 big bottle of Dial lotion, and a small bottle of aspirin. Are you ready for the total? I paid… $3.98, can you say SCORE!

I know one thing; I will never shop online or offline without first checking out all the deals going on at all the different stores. One thing I love about is they find me all the great Wal-Mart coupon codes. If Wal-Mart is not a store you shop at often, not a problem all you have to do is a search for the store you want to find coupon codes for, it is that simple.

Have any of you thought about using coupons, and online coupon codes to cut down on some of your everyday items? What sort of deals have y’all got? I would love to hear about the great savings y’all are getting!
