As the name of my blog suggests, couponing is something I do every time I shop anywhere. And if you've ever tried to learn how to use coupons yourself,  you know that one of the most time consuming parts of couponing is clipping coupons. It can often get frustrating to have to run home to get my coupons before stopping by a store or needed to spend 15 minutes looking for and clipping paper coupons. I have taken to keeping my couponing bag in the car with me in case I need to run in and grab a few things when I am around town.

Nothing makes me crazier than having to pay full price for something when I know I have a coupon for it at home. It was like Walgreens read my mind when they added their new paperless coupon feature to their mobile app. I can now simply "clip" my coupons digitally and they are automatically tied to my Balance Rewards card as well as available with one easy scannable barcode on my phone.

When I first downloaded the app, I went through the available paperless coupons and clipped the ones I thought I might use. I love that I didn't have to waste ink or paper and I could clip as many as I wanted without lots of clutter or paper to carry around. Once in the store, I could also search through the coupons right in the aisle to see if what I was buying had one available. That came in very handy when I ended up with an impulse buy of lip balm : )

We are getting ready to leave on a family road trip in to North Carolina in a few weeks and I needed to stop by Walgreens to refill a prescription. While I waited I decided to supplement the first aid travel kit I had already put together at Walgreens over Spring Break with a few extra things we might need while in the mountains. I gabbed Purel, Bactine Spray, an OFF Family Care Pen, lip balm, and some road trip snacks. I was able to save over $5 with my paperless coupons and that paid for my prescription co-pay which was a nice way to use my savings. I also had $5 in Balance Rewards too so I saved over $10 total in one trip!

As someone who has a busy summer and school year ahead of them, I love that I can browse new Walgreens coupons on my phone and since I am often running in there to grab a prescription it's nice to know that I can save on the go with paperless coupons even if I made an unplanned trip.
