Coach Online Outlet sale!!

Just a heads up to you designer fans who aren’t fans of the original designer price: Coach is having their online outlet sale, and man, are there some awesome deals!  This COATED CANVAS BABY BAG MESSENGER is the same bag I bought in the Houston Coach Outlet store the other week for $132.XX, and is on sale for $125.00!! This was originally $358.00!!!  I love this bag, especially the fact that the outer shell is a PVC-like material, similar to that of Louis Vuitton, so it will last for much longer than their typical cloth counterparts.  I currently use mine as a laptop bag/backpack for school and plan to be able to use it when I am a teacher for the same purpose.

 

Let me know if you cannot log into the sale & I will e-mail you my account and password if you are serious about buying something 🙂

Shop With Paige! 7/31-8/6 Results

Here’s a goal/challenge that I am setting for myself:  List all of my purchases and how much I saved once a week, and tally it up at the end of the year.  I also want to start listing out the deals that I plan on buying at the beginning of the sale week (Sunday for most retail stores, Wednesday for grocery stores) so you can be sure to snag the same deal if you need it!

This is going to be “week 1” but I will start over in January.  My goal is to save at least 2 times what I spend overall.  To get the ball rolling, here’s what I scored this week:

Office Max:

It was Teacher Appreciation Day this past Sunday & Monday at Office Max.  Even though I’m a preschool teacher right now, I still qualify for the MaxPerks Teacher card.  They handed out reusable bags with awesome goodies inside when I walked in, and they even gave me a planner with extra coupons to use throughout the year.  Inside the goody bag was a pack of red Sharpies, labels, post-its, paper clips, Expo cleansing wipes, and a coupon for Payless Shoe Source for $5 anything!  I then picked up 2 rolls of Scotch Magic Tape, 1 reusable tote from Scotch/Post-it, 2 boxes of Schoolio crayons, 2 wooden rules, and 1 composition book.  I had a store coupon to make the reusable tote free, the crayons and rulers were a penny a piece, the composition book was fifty cents, and the tape was $1.99 each.  I spent a little less than $4, as teachers got 20% off what fit inside the reusable bag (that didn’t already have a coupon attached to it).  I went back the next day to pick up some BiC pens (my favorite!) for their B2G2 sale.  I picked up 4 boxes of 12 Ultra Round Stic grip pens for $3.98 after the 20% store coupon, but had 2 $1 off any Bic Easy Glide manufacturer’s printable coupon, so it made it $1.98 for the 4 boxes of pens.  I also picked up 10 packs (teachers are allowed to purchase double the limit listed) of notebook paper at $.20 per packet and 3 hand sanitizers for $.30 a bottle after the store’s weekly coupons.  After all coupons, I paid a little over $5 for everything.

Total spent: ~$10  Total saved: About $25, but will calculate once I have all my receipts in front of me. 😛

Kroger:

Before the previous week’s sale had ended for the “buy any 4 select General Mills products, get 2 gallons of milk free” deal, I decided it was time to try the Nature Valley Granola Thins that I have been eyeing for quite some time now.  I found a printable coupon for $.50 off 1 box, but my Kroger still doubles and triples (thank goodness), so that equals $1 off 1 box.  I printed off 4 coupons from both of my computers and headed to the store.  I also brought along a $1 off 1 Nabisco cookie with the purchase of milk coupon to pick up some Chips Ahoy! which I am currently munching on…yum!  I also had 8 coupons for $.50 off any Crest toothpaste from the 7/31 P&G insert that would double to make the Crest I posted about last week FREE!  So I bought 4x Nature Valley Granola Thins at $2.79 each, less 4x $.50 doubled coupon ($1 off), 4 tubes of toothpaste less $.50 doubled coupon ($1).

Total spent: $8.71  Total Saved: $13.94, Kroger Plus savings may be a little more

Target:

So I had a GREAT time at Target this week!!  I’ve been in the market for a 32″ TV for my living room so Cassidy and I won’t have to stand up just two feet from the screen of my 19″ Toshiba to see the tiny details of my Wii games.  DeeDee, another local couponer here in Bryan, asked if I would mind helping her pick up some items that she has oodles of coupons for at Target this week.  Well, being the Target deal experts that we are, we know to search the endcaps of the aisles for clearance and sale items.  We picked up her items and kept walking around the store to see if there were any great deals lying around.  In one of the aisles, we noticed some of the Target Team Members putting out new furnishings and decor, so we looked at the next aisle over, only to find it full of clearance!  I picked up 2 large lamp bases (originally $59.99 each) for $14.98 a piece and 2 lamp shades (originally $19.99 each) for $4.98 each!  Clearance items vary by store, but more often than not, they have a relatively close markdown schedule to where most stores will be clearancing it out.  After picking this up, we headed to the electronics department to see if there were any good deals on TVs this week.  DeeDee noticed that there were two “out of the box” 32″ flat panels sitting below the display.  The first was an Apex for I think $279.98 on clearance, and then a Samsung model just a little further down the aisle for $299.98 on clearance.  Now, DeeDee had bought a floor model TV previously, and was given an EXTRA 30% discount off of the listed price because it was the last one in stock.  We asked the guy in electronics if it would have this extra discount applied to it since we did not see anymore with that DPCI (DePartment Catergory Item; Target’s organization system code) out on the floor.  He went over to the TV, punched in some numbers on the PDA, and printed out a “Repackage” sticker for the new price which was…*drumroll*

 

$210.01!!  I was shocked that I was able to get an almost new TV (it was used as a display for only last week when it was on sale in the ad) for cheaper that some people were asking on Craigslist!

Total Spent: $0.00 because I used store gift cards I have accumulated from other deals;  Total Saved: between $250 and $300 before taxes (will edit once I have my receipts!)

 

I don’t have the final numbers in yet, only because I’ve been reorganizing my coupons and have all my receipts in one big bag at the moment.  A rough estimate would probably be:

Spent:  ~$20;  Saved: ~$275 to $325
