I love feeling like I scored a great deal or as the Rev would say "sticking it to the man." And in these trying economic times, it excites me even more. I'll clip coupons, wait for a sale, and stalk an item until it goes on clearance in my quest for a bargain.
So when I saw this recent issue of All You magazine (have I mentioned my magazine addiction?--don't forget that WalMart discounts magazines 10% every day) boasting on the cover that it contained over $51 worth of coupons, I was in! Combine these coupons with the expanded Cosmetics department at the new WalMart and I was stoked! Here is the breakdown of what I got and what I saved:
Sea Breeze Astringent
N.Y.C. Lip Slider
Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara
2 Sally Hansen Color Quick Nail Pens
Total Retail Price: $28.37 + $2.24 (magazine) = $30.61
Cost after Coupons: $14.14 Total Savings: $16.47
And did I mention, this great score? I had been stalking these great Better Homes & Gardens hurricane vases for a while, just waiting for them to go on sale. When they closed the old WalMart, they started putting a lot of stuff on clearance. I patiently waited and was rewarded big time. I got not 1, but 2 of these huge vases for only $3.50 each! And it got even better--I scored this pair (yes 2 of them in one box!) of buffet lamps with red shades for only $4!
Oh, I do great big super puffy heart bargains!
