I’ll admit it. I’ve been reading several couponers’ (Is that a word? Is now!) blogs. I was skeptical, at best, about the deals they were allegedly getting.

After reading for months, I finally convinced my hubby to buy me a couple of newspapers this past Sunday (08/01). Hubby got excited the minute we found a $2.00 off coupon for Joint Juice in each paper. That’s something he actually uses and the $2.00 coupon is equivalent to the price of the Sunday Paper at the newsstand. Newspaper paid for!

After checking a few blogs for their scenarios, I created one of my own. I need to wait for confirmation on a couple of the Rebates, but for the sake of telling my story, I’ll be the devil’s advocate and assume that the rebates are all going to work.

Here’s a photo of what I got:
