Having an Extreme Couponing moment...

Hey dolls! Sorry I been gone for so long.. I know I am seriously behind on blogging/Youtubing. Been so busy this past two months with traveling and family in town. Haven't had a minute to really just sit and catch up. >.< exhaustion!

So just wanted to share some of my couponing moments I've done this past few weeks. I won't call myself an EXTREME COUPONER just yet because I am no where close to these ladies on (TLC Extreme Couponers) but I am definitely a Coupon Diva! Having 3 little ones and being a family of 5, it only makes sense to SAVE. Why not? Especially with the amount of freebies I have earned, it makes it easier in my bank account. ^__^

Some of these items were pretty much close to FREE (example below). Usually in my trip to Target, I try my best to double if not triple my coupons and get the best deal possible. You can use (1) manufacturer + (1) store coupon (example: target printables on their website) per item.

So below I have posted some photos of the trips I have made to Target and CVS. I also show a receipt to one of my target trips to PROVE that this is FOR-RRREAL!!! :)

(P.S. John Frieda hair color and shampoo/conditioner is Fantastic! I am hooked!!!)
