Sticky Quick Reference for a beginner

With all of the different coupon policies, and combining different coupon type questions, I found I needed a quick reference to answer most of my usual questions. I am still a newbie, and as organized as I wanna be, I still rife through a pile of coupons in the middle of the store with a baby and a 3 year old....enough said. Any little time saver is helpful! Print these out, put them in the front of the binder :)

Walgreens Wrap-Up

Here's the low down from Walgreens this week, from a girl with a sad sad binder! Week #1 couponing, bought 2 newspapers, had doubles of all coupons. Week #2 couponing, NO INSERTS! Ordered 100 food and grocery coupons form ebay for $1.49 shipped. (Sidebar ;-) 

So I do have to say that my low variety and stock of coupons limited what I was able to do, but for the beginners out there, I got all you see here for $16. Pretty sweet to me :) I hate it when we run out of lotion and I have to go spend $5.49 or something.

All in all a good trip for me, and the best part is that I can see the time when I will have so many more match-ups available to me that it does become a little addicting!
