Cindy’s Shopping Trip – Completely FREE

tripExtreme Couponing Shopping Trip

This week I really didn’t have anything to buy.  I was actually going to take the week off from shopping and just make a stop at Aldi.  But, I made a big donation from the stockpile at the last LRWC workshop that I thought I would just shop FREE this week and add things back to the donation section of my stockpile.  So, I headed to Shoprite, Walgreens, Dollar Tree and CVS to take advantage of some free offers.

We will be donating the following items:

  • Lucky Charms Cereal
  • Texas Toast Croutons
  • L’eggs
  • Kotex
  • CVS Flavor Chews

Here is what I did:

    great job! being able to donate is one of the awesome perks of couponing!

    • Yep I agree. Lately, we have really been eating very clean..just basic whole foods. So I have really been taking advantage of deals that I can donate plus HBA and Household products for us.

    What is a Catalina? Are they specific to a particular store?

    • Deena

      Catalina is a printed coupon that you get at some retailers after you buy specific products. They change monthly. Not every store does them. Search Catalina on LRWC and you can see the monthly list!
