Could This be Getting … Extreme?!

Today is day 2 of keeping a tally of the number of coupons I use in a month and I’ve already hit the half-way mark of my monthly savings prediction.  Whoops!  I think I had “groceries” on my mind, and hadn’t considered the high value coupons that I often redeem for household items and personal care.  And today’s Customer Appreciation event at Shoppers Drug Mart resulted in a whole lotta savings:  savings that are all part of our strategy to permit me to stay home with the kids as a Save-at-Home-Mom!  You can read all about my trip to Shoppers Drug Mart in my post on Canadian Coupons.

Day 1 – 12 coupons used for $13.96 in savings

Day 2 – 13 coupons used for $62.85 in savings

Month to date:  $76.81 saved by using coupons

Click on my Coupon Tally UPDATE October 2 .pdf file for full product and coupon details (plus a few ramblings of an Extremely-in-denial -that-she’s-Extreme Couponer).  And please do drop a line if you’d like help finding some of these coupons to add to your monthly savings – I’d be more than happy to help.

Happy Couponing!
