On Deals & Couponing & Swagbucks
Look what arrived on my doorstep yesterday. I paid $8.32 for this box of diapers. For reals. That's 6 cents per diaper!
Did you know that I'm a deal diva? I looooove getting a good deal. It makes me feel super, super awesome. Saving money, paying way less than I should have, keeping more money in my bank account....I love it!
Anyway, let me fill you in a bit on how I got this big box of teeny tiny diapers for so cheap. I follow a few couponing/money saving blogs. One being my mom's blog, The Centsible Couponer. Perhaps this is where I get it from. Maybe I got the deal diva gene from her. :) Another one of these blogs that I follow is My Frugal Adventures & when I saw this post about diaper deals on Amazon, I thought the Pampers deal was too good to pass up. I followed her directions & registered for Amazon Mom & Subscribe and Save. Shipping was free, so with the promotion + a $1.50 Amazon coupon, this box of diapers would have been $16.34. But I had a gift certificate balance of $8.02 that I had earned through Swagbucks that I was able to apply. Making my total just $8.32!
Now, let me just tell you how much I love Swagbucks. You just register & search through the swagbucks search engine & you earn bucks that you can cash in for rewards. I always cash mine in for $5 Amazon gift cards. Then I let them accrue in my account until I'm ready to spend them. Currently I'm earning about $10 per month in Amazon gift certificates through Swagbucks. My plan is to continue to apply these towards diaper purchases.
Cool, right? I just love a good deal & I'm thankful for all the bloggers out there that find the deals for me!
Please excuse my unmoisturized hand, but look at this adorable, tiny diaper! It's crazy just how excited I'm getting for this baby to come & I still have 4 more months to wait. It'll go by fast, right? That's why I'm already stockpiling diapers when they go on sale. :)
