On Black Friday last year I bought three small kitchen appliances that came with a rebate for $10 each. I bought a deep fryer, griddle pan and waffle maker for $1.20 after rebate! Although rebate checks take time to come, they are so worth it and add up quickly. I’m going to try to do more rebates, just send it and forget it!
I am keeping a running total of all coupons I used on my right sidebar. I don’t have any strict guidelines for what I’m tracking, but there are some boundaries I’m trying to keep within!
All food, including eating out. If I used a coupon, it will be counted.
All toilteries. That includes diapers, lotions and potions!
All drugstore cash back and Catalina coupons.
I know some people don’t account for the cash back from drugstores like CVS extra care bucks or Rite Aid +UPs, but for this I am counting it. The way I look at it, if it’s not coming out of my pocket, it’s a coupon. Also, if I can’t use it ‘like cash’ everywhere but the store it came from, it’s a coupon.
