The coupons I used on my “shopping spree” today

I actually went shopping for something other than groceries today. This is notable because it only happens a few times each year! I’m such a wierdo, I know. 😉

I had accumulated some coupons for free stuff so I asked my husband if he would take care of our little one while I ran a bunch of errands. I visited Target, Staples and Bath & Body Works. I used my three coupons to get all of this stuff for free:


I did have to spend some to get this stuff for free, but it amounted to less than $10 total and was on stuff I would have bought anyway. Do you like how I got into the bag of Snapea Crisps on the way home, forgetting I wanted to take a picture for the blog? I never buy nice smelly lotion for myself so I was most excited about the Bath & Body Works purchase. 🙂


And it gets even better… yesterday I had an email from Zappos offering me a $20 Rewards Code if I joined their free reward program. I promptly did (of course) and received an email with my reward code in a matter of minutes.


I spent it on a pair of on-sale Crocs for my little one, since she has almost outgrown her current pair. Zappos isn’t my favorite site, but I’ll definitely take a free $20 to spend there.

So in all I scored $48 worth of free stuff today and had a bunch of fun in the process. Do you have any recent frugal wins you are proud of? Please share in a comment below!
