Ok well since this forum is not so busy, I thought I would start a brag thread.
Canadian stores do not allow stacking (unless you are lucky enough to live near a LD which I do LOL)
I have been joining coupon trains, and trades, ordering online and using Tearpads. At LD (drugstore chain) we can buy cleaning and personal hygiene supplies SUPER cheap with the right combination of coupons.
My total OOP for all this stuff is at the bottom
1 x 12pk Royale TP ($4.99 - $1MC = 3.99 OOP)
1x Scrubbing bubbles sprayer & refill ($9.99 - 5.00SS - 5.00SS - B sprayer get refill free = O OOP)
1 x SB foam (3.99 - B gel G foam free = 0 OOP)
1 x SB toilet gel (2.99 - 1.00ss - 1.00SS = .99 OOP)
3x Tide Laundry (32 uses) (7.99ea - 3x3.00MC - 3x3.00MC - 5WUB2 = .99 OOP)
2 x Sunlight laundry (32 uses i think) (3.99ea - 2x2.00 MC- 2WUB2 - 2x1.00Tearpad = 1.98OOP0
6 x Gillette shaving foam (1.97EA - 3x5WUB2 = 0 OOP)
4 x Old Spice Body Wash (2.99 ea - 4x 1.00SS - 4x 1.00TP -4x1.00TP = 0 OOP)
2 x Old Spice Deodorant (1.99ea - 2x1.00TP - 2x1.00TP= 0 OOP)
5 x Gillette Deodorant (1.99ea - 5WUB3 - 5x 1.00TP = 0 OOP)
4 x Secret Deodorant (2.99 ea - 4x1.00 PG = 1.99 ea (combine with other PG coupons to make free)
5 x Satin Care Shave Gel (1.97ea - 7WUB3 - 3x1.00 = 0 oop)
3 x Gillette Razors (3 pk disposable) (cant remember exact coupon use...OOP was $6)
3x Gillette Venus Embrace (9.99 -3x 2WUBsecret - 3x7WUB3 (combined with secret and satin care) - 3x2.00 PG= 0 OOP)
3x Venus Razors (3pk disposable) (6.99ea - 7WUB3 - 3x 2.00PG - 2.00 TP = 5.97OOP)
2x Always ininity pads (3.99ea - 2x.75PG - 1.50WUB2 - 2.00WUB2 = 2.98 OOP)

Total OOP = 32.02 +taxes
Before coupons total = 201.28
I was so amazed by these savings. All the items on here are going to my local youth emergency shelter
Great couponing! i've found that with enough efford i can save quite a bit, but the effort it takes to put into it is pretty daunting. its much easier for me to just shop sales for my family! We live in a rural area where we don't get the sunday papers with good coupons in them (ive tried, unless i want to buy every week for $3.75, which if one kid gets sick would be a waste because i wouldnt be able to get to the right stores for the right sales) and add gas money...... its nearly pointless.
I have watched it and am sort of envious. Although here in Western Canada, the HBA coupies are easier to find than decent food coupies. And also we can not stack food coups, nor do we have many if any double coupon days...
Safeway will allow us to use their club savings plus ONE coupon per item (unless said coupon says one per transaction)
Sobeys will only allow one coupons
WalMart....their policy is changing....might be getting excited over this one... will keep you posted
I have been using coupons alot lately but never do that well! None of the stores here allow coupon doubling or stacking.
