Hmmm...Do I Have a Coupon For That? Holiday Saving...

My Store Coupons

I wish I had all the money in the world to spend this Christmas, but with my apartment's mortgage, health insurance, & beginning to put money towards my 401K I've had to count my pennies a little more this year. I can't complain because it's helping me learn to how save money & prioritize my spending. You can never have too many clothes or body sprays but starting in 2013 I'm cutting back my frivolous spending and be more aware instead of just swiping my credit card. 

I'm not a crazy coupon lady by any means, but I will use coupons whenever I can. Craig won't go to the super market with me because I always use coupons and the weekly ads never show you ALL the items on sale, so it takes me a while to shop and use all my coupons. I don't have a stockpile, but a few items, if the price is good, I will buy a couple at a time in the grocery store. 

Christmas presents though are a whole different matter with savings.

Left to Right: 
Kohls - Extra 20% Off Everything,
  Bath & Body Works - $10 Off a $30 Purchase
 Victoria Secret - A 'Secret Reward' of at least $10 AND $10 Off any Purchase (Combinable), Burlington Coat Factory - $10 Off a $20 Purchase
 Yankee Candle - Buy 2 Any Size & Get 2 Free 

Well these store coupons will definitely help me out a little this Christmas season. The Yankee Candle coupon I got in my Sunday Paper and the others I got in the mail because I gave my email addresses when I've made previous purchases. The Victoria Secret reward card I got because I made a purchase last month. The cool part about it is the value is of it is either, $10, $50, $100, or $500. It would be awesome to have gotten a $500, I'd so be done with a lot of shopping. But who knows, I have to wait and see. The Kohl's coupon I'm going to stretch a little further by using my Kohl's cash from my Kitchen Aid purchase. Whew...

The Burlington Coat Factory coupon and the Yankee Candle coupon expires today so I gotta go use it. They are too good of a coupon not to use it and it will definitely knock off at least three gifts. 

How are You Saving this Holiday Season? 
I'd love to hear...


  1. I've been trying to use similar store coupons too - every little bit helps! If you shop online too, I always google to see if I can find any coupons before I make a purchase - doesn't hurt to look!

  6. Oh Chloe - I so need to do this! I have an issue with buying clothes and body spray, lol (seriously). I love the idea of making 2013 the year to manage money wisely, brilliant thinking! :)

    1. Even just checking websites for the stores in the mall is a great place to start! A lot of stores have print-out coupons even if there isn't an advertised sale in a newspaper flyer. =) Good luck!
