My Shopping Week Feb 15th – Feb 21st

I shopped at Costco, Target, HyVee, Price Chopper, and CVS this week! I had to make up for not shopping at all last week. I didn’t spend much time though! I was gone for an hour and 15 minutes when I did my CVS/HyVee/Price Chopper run and the next night we spent an hour at Costco and Target.

It was a little frustrating since I was overcharged $1.34. It was still a great deal so I didn’t sweat it. I had DS and DH with me so I wasn’t paying attention when everything rang up.

What is a vocal point coupon?

Vocal point is a website that you can join (vocalpoint.com) that will send you coupons and samples in the mail.

I definitely recommend it! They send lots of freebie coupons along with some high value ones 🙂
