Woodmans teaching trip!

Yes thats right. I was at Woodmans at 6 am with my friend Ryan to teach him how to coupon! 🙂 (us and about 3 other customers 🙂 ) I had not been in Woodmans for a while so I was happy to go and check things out . Here is what I found:

Final cost FREE

  • Cream of Tartar $0.89 (no coupon but i ran out making playdough this week for my daughters class)
  • 2 Pull Ups Wipes $1.79 each ($3.58 total)

Final cost$1.58 or $0.79 each

  • Hills Brothers Skinny Latte $2.99

Final cost $2.64

This post is a good example of everyday shopping. In the past several weeks ( with so many double and triple coupon deals) we have been very focused on how to score many FREE items or how to save 70% 80% or more! Yes saving 70% or more is awesome BUT  it isnt necessarily the norm every time you shop. If you always shop , say Woodmans, and you never had used coupons, saving 50% now by using coupons is a GREAT deal! thats 50% in your pocket! (and I did in fact get some free or almost free items!)

    It has been a while since I have been in Woodmans, but the last time I heard they were only allowing 1 printable coupon per order. Is that still the case?
