My First Extreme Couponing Experience - Bath & Beauty

I've been posting a lot on how and where I've been saving money at the grocery store. In my last post, I shared where to save money on organic/natural products. I also shared our grocery budget for our family of 4 and my desire to shop below that.

This past week I challenged myself to extreme coupon. I've been hesitant to go this route because I know there are a lot of things I don't need, but I think my clipping efforts were well worth it this week as I scored some great deals!

Here's a peak at my findings and savings:

2 packages of Seventh Generation diapers $9.99 each...$19.98 @ Hannaford
2 coupons for FREE Seventh Generation diapers, wipes or training pants (up to $13 value each)
TOTAL: $0.00

1 bottle of LA Looks Beachy Mega Waves Spray Gel...$1.94 @ Walmart
1 coupon $1.00 off any LA Looks product
