I love watching all the totals and savings, what about you? Many people think the show extreme couponing is unrealistic. Here’s my two cents:
The average couponer can expect to save 50%: Some items, such as drugstore items and hygiene items, couponers get for free at CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreen’s. Other items, such as fresh fruit and produce, have much less coupons and unless you can roll catalinas to pay for these items, you’re not going to get huge discounts on them. Your best bet is to watch weekly ads for the best sales on produce. So an average couponer will average out at about 50% savings.
This also largely depends on your area; some areas of the country have a plethora of great stores to shop at, while others have slim pickings.
I was just at Kmart for a reason you won’t believe. My daughter got invited to a boys birthday party. I always stock up on “girls” toys for my kids and parties they are invited to, but never thought to buy “boy” presents for my stockpile! Well, I was lucky to find they had some toys on clearance and I ended up getting a good deal.
But onto the most important part of this post… when the cashier stuck the toy I bought in a bag, she also stuck in a single sheet of paper with 5 $20 coupons when you transfer your prescription to Kmart! So, if you have a prescription that needs filled, go in to Kmart and ask for the sheet of paper they are stuffing in people’s bags at checkout! Also, this coupon is for a specific amount, $20, so it is possible Walmart will take it as per Walmart’s new coupon policy. If anyone tries it at Walmart, let us know if it works!
Read my post on and how it works if you don’t know how exciting prescription transfer coupons are!
CVS prescription transfer coupon: Some CVS Pharmacies WILL accept this Kmart coupon as a competitor’s coupon! Call yours and see if they will take it!
UPDATE: Out of stock!

I had a phenomenal trip this morning to the Kmart Double Coupon Event and am getting ready to go again today with my mom and use the $1/1 Tide and $1/1 Charmin and $/1 Bounty coupons I got inside my Pampers I bought! Let me explain in further detail:
Not all boxes have the $30 in P&G coupons inside – look for the specially marked packages, then do this deal:
Buy 2 packages
Use the $2/1 Pampers Diapers or Pants, exp. 3-31-11 (P&G 02/27/11)
Pay $29.98 OOP
Recieve a $10 catalina
Final Price=$9.99 each for the biggest size packages!
Now I was worried, because after I scanned my Kmart rewards card, these are the only 2 catalinas that printed:
Then I paid for my transaction, and my receipt printed: (note I used $1.75/1 coupons because I didn’t have the $2/1 pampers coupons)
THEN finally the $10/$10 coupon printed!!!!
THEN a coupon printed for a FREE pretzels! I won a KaChing reward!
Hurray! Well things just kept getting better, checkout the coupons that were in the Pampers boxes I bought: (I put my favs in pink!):
$2/1 Any Size Pampers Swaddlers or Cruisers
$1/1 Similac Brand Infant Formula
$1/1 Dreft Baby Laundry Detergent 32 loads or larger

So when I was at the store, I saw this deal:
I saw that Bounty paper towels are $12.99 (reg. $17.99) for 12 big rolls, that equal 16 rolls!
Well, now I have $1/1 Bounty coupons from my Pampers box I purchase, PLUS these are P&G so if you spend over $35 you’d get yet another $10 /$10 coupon!
I also saw Charmin 24 big rolls (equals 48 regular rolls) on sale for $15.99, and there’s $1/1 Charmin’s in the coupon booklet as well!
So JUST using the coupon booklet out of the Pampers boxes you can get this deal:
Buy 1 Bottle of Tide 75oz or 55 Load $8.99
Buy 1 Bounty paper towels $12.99
Buy 1 Charmin 24 double rolls TP – $15.99
Total before coupons= $37.97 (so you’ll get the $10 catalina)
Use the $1/1 Tide coupon
Use the $1/1 Bounty Coupon
Use the $1/1 Charmin coupon
Pay: $31.97 OOP
Recieve a $10 catalina Final Price= $21.97 for all three!
OR you can get another item for free from this list, and use the $4 off any $40 coupon purchase that printed from earlier, and get another $4 off + free item!
