When you start couponing, there are lots of important coupon tips to learn - how to find coupons, how to keep them organized, how to combine store and manufacturer's coupons to save more, how to use coupons to get overages which can be used to purchase items without coupons. But here is the most important coupon tip you'll ever learn:
Bring your coupons to the store!
I didn't follow this tip for my Walgreens trip. Oops!
But I remembered that eggs and cream cheese were on sale for 99¢ each - cheaper than at ALDI, where eggs are $1.29 a dozen and cream cheese is $1.19 per 8-ounce brick. So I bought some of each. I'll make another trip to Walgreens later this week to buy my coupon items as well as more eggs and cream cheese.
Here's what I got:
2 dozen eggs @ 99¢ = $1.98
4 8-oz cream cheese @ 99¢ = $3.96
Total product: $5.94
Pay with $1 Register Rewards from last week
Total out of pocket: $4.94
Total saved compared to Walgreens full prices: $3.64
