Shopping the Deals

I am really starting to love CVS. Today I hit three different CVS stores and picked up most of the items in this picture. Three of the items were picked up at Walmart yesterday. I purchased everything in this picture for a grand total of $2.64.

I am having so much fun with putting together deals. I love to take at least one night a week and put together my shopping list and pull my coupons for shopping. I think it's just so worth it when you take the time to plan out your shopping. You do have to be flexible though because you never know when they're going to be out of something that is on your list or you'll see something that is also a good deal.

I had been debating using the Walgreens $5 off of $20 coupon that's good tomorrow (Friday, June 13th). So I decided to sit down and write up my shopping list to see if it would be worth making a stop. My gift card from the May rebate came in today so I have some free money begging to be spent. I finally came up with two alternative lists to maximize my savings with the coupon. Now I just have to hope that they have everything that I want when I get there tomorrow. At least I have two scenarios to choose from.

Do you take the time to plan out your shopping trips and pull your coupons? If you do, do you find that this works well for you?
