Anyway, inspired by my Real Simple magazine, I decided to buy the Sunday paper and clip coupons. I clipped several coupons for items I use regularly, or items I'd be willing to substitute for the items I use regularly. This week's coupon books were a wealth of potential savings! Crest Pro Health toothpaste! Whitening rinse! Bounce dryer sheets, which I was almost out of anyway!
Armed with coupons, I headed to Wal-Mart on Sunday afternoon. For the first time ever, I was disappointed by Wal-Mart's low prices. Instead of using a coupon to buy Bounce dryer sheets, I bought Great Value dryer sheets at half the price. Bounce dryer sheets for $4.50 after the coupon, or Great Value dryer sheets for $2? Come on...that's a no-brainer. Wal-Mart's store brand rendered my coupons virtually useless. Sadness!
Note: I did have better luck at Walgreens, but who really shops for groceries there? The only person I know who shops there is my crazy grandmother. I really don't want to go down that road!
In other news, Ross and I had engagement pictures made this past weekend. We should have proofs in the next few weeks. If I'm allowed to share, I'll post a link!
