just call me a robber

Thursday night while Matt was watching the Rangers game, I was busy clipping coupons, printing coupons, checking websites and making my shopping list.  When I went to bed, I was SO excited about all the deals and legal steals I was going to get in the morning that I could hardly go to sleep!!

I got all of this stuff from CVS and Target for $15.25.  Plus I got 10 Extra Bucks to spend at CVS later!! I practicaly robbed CVS and Target!!
Pictured on the left is my trip to CVS: 
 4 Windex, 2 Dawn, 2 Coppertone Sunscreen, 2 Secret Deodorant, 3 packs of Stride Gum,  1Glade Plug-in, 2 Glade Plug-in refills, 1 Glad Scented Oil Candle Holder, 1 Scented Oil Candle Refil

Pictured on the right is my trip to Target: 
6 Healthy Choice Frozen Meals, 2 Eggo Waffles, 2 Band-Aids, 1 Neosporin, 1 First Aid Kit, 1 Travel Size Women's One A Day Vitamins, 1 Vaseline Aloe Lotion, 1 Travel Size Vaseline Aloe Lotion, 1 Scrubbing Bubbles Daily Power Sprayer, 1 Scrubbing Bubbles Refil, 1 Scrubbing Bubble Fresh Brush 2-in-1 Kit, 1 Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Gel

Earlier this year I had a little "coupon class" with some of the girls from my church.  I think the class was pretty successful because a few of the girls are really getting into couponing.  Just recently I have had a few more friends mention that they would like to learn how to coupon.  

So.....

If I had another coupon class, would you be interested in coming??  
(This invitation is only to friends I know or know of in the Dallas area!!)

Leave me a comment if you interested in coming and I'll try to find a date this summer to host a class if I have enough interest!!
