I got all of this for free, but I actually made $0.28...so Rite Aid paid me to take all this product. There are 3 boxes of laundry detergent in that picture by the way. Later that day I went to Walgreens and got 21 packs of gum for free...and can go back on Friday to get 15 more packs.
I am just shocked at the value of a dollar. I used to think you couldn't buy anything for a dollar...I was so wrong. I am so happy to learn how to be so frugal. I have a hard time spending money now. It is hard for me to go pay for anything now....I just think about everything I could be getting for that money. I am just grateful for everything I have learned.
I am grateful for the opportunities that couponing has given me. I now feel like I have done my part as a mother and wife to provide for my family. My husband brings home the money, and I do everything I can to prepare our family for the tough times we may have ahead of us. I have been so overstocked on so much, I have felt a little overwhelmed. I decided to call my Relief Society president and ask her if she knew of some people in our ward that was struggling and could use a gift basket of goodies to help them out a little bit. She said there were 2 families in our ward who were really having a hard time right now. So I have put together 2 baskets full of everything from all beauty supplies, to dish soap, cleaning supplies, medicine, air fresheners, etc. I am just so happy that not only have I been able to help out my family, but help out others as well.
I am so grateful! So grateful for everyone who has helped me and supported me through my crazy shopping trips. I just love how something as little as couponing has taught me so much.
I just love it.
