Paperless Coupons: My New Obsession

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

Let’s talk about coupons. Personally, I hate to clip coupons. I know I should, I could save a LOT of money, but it takes TIME. I basically can’t commit to clipping coupons. In the past when I have clipped coupons, I forgot them at home. it just hasn’t even been worth it for me.

Until now, thanks to #WalgreensPaperless coupons!

Here’s how it works: Walgreens Paperless coupons are eCoupons that can be “clipped” to your Balance Rewards card. If you don’t already have one, what are you waiting for? I love how convenient the Walgreens Mobile app is! My card is always handy, and I can easily clip coupons to my card before I go in to the store. I always have my phone handy so leaving my coupons at home is no longer an issue!

With Brayden about to go back to school, his school supply list is still sitting on the counter and we hadn’t made it to the store yet. It really is a daunting task! In addition to the school supplies, he needs jeans, winter shirts, and tennis shoes. Back to school shopping REALLY adds up, so I headed to Walgreens to see what I could save on!

I decided to check the available coupons to see if I could save some money on Brayden’s school supplies. It’s not a very long list for preschool, but still! Luckily, certain Crayola items were buy one, get one 50% off! I also found a coupon for Kleenex’s, gallon sized ziploc bags, cereal, and Pop-Tarts. ALL thing we will need for back to school AND breakfasts!

To redeem the coupons, simply “clip” them to your Balance Rewards card and when you scan your card at the checkout register, the savings are automatically applied! You can only use each coupon once, so once it is used, it is deleted from the app. I LOVE this feature, because then I am not getting duplicates of items. It couldn’t be any easier, and I like that I don’t have to put a LOT of time into saving money.

This was my haul from this particular shopping trip, and I made a pretty good dent in Brayden’s school supplies! Pretty soon, most of this will be packed up in his book bag, ready for his first day of school. I feel good about getting part of his list done while saving money for things we will need later in the year– like after school snacks, longer jeans, and bigger tennis shoes.

Do you use coupons? Anything in particular you are saving up for?

Dirty Kids are Happy Kids

There were two things that the kids could not WAIT to get at our new house– their swing set and their sand box. There was one of those that I dreaded. I will let you figure that one out. *cough* SANDBOX *cough* Truth be told, the sandbox is not my favorite thing. I just hate…
