It's Mother's Day over here. I'll post a photo tomorrow of what me and dh got off the kids as it was a joint present.
Went to Shopper's Drug Mart and cashed in my points, as there were a few things I wanted. Here is what I got:
Another shot of the same things:
If I had paid regular price for everything without coupons and my points I would have paid $250.71. After using $31 in coupons, and cashing in $200 worth of points I paid $19.71 out of pocket. I will say that took a lot of planning on my part, looking at the flyer and checking what coupons I had etc. Then it took me another hour just to do the actual shop itself as they didn't have some of the items etc, so not a five minute job, but with those savings it was well worth while.
I shopped at No Frills also this week and used $50 worth of PC Points that I collect when I use my Mastercard, and along with coupon savings of $14.10, I spent $79.57. I then cashed in $5 worth of Sobeys points at Sobeys bringing my total there to $2.79. I am stocked up on a number of things, so although I am over budget on a week to week basis I hope to be under budget on a monthly basis. My month to date totals are $193.99 spent with savings of $326.38!!!!
Wish every month could be like this!!
