Good Shopping Trip to Walgreens

April 12, 2010

I went into Walgreens yesterday to get 2 items but ended up with 9.  It is always a good idea to walk down the clearance aisle in Walgreens – they sometimes have some really good deals there.  I ended up with 2 packages of Zantac, 2 packages of Pepcid Complete, 3 packs of Easter Peeps, 1 Schick Shave Gel, and 1 set  of Schick Quattro 4 pack Razors.  Total out of pocket with tax was $4.93 and I got back $4 in Register Rewards to use when I go again.   Not bad for a quick trip!  The peeps are not all in the photo (the kids love these things). 

Shopping Trip to CVS Yesterday

April 9, 2010

I went to CVS yesterday to get some more free items.  I had to get a few rainchecks on items that were already sold out, but still did good.  My total came to $11.95, but I had $4.25 in coupons, and $7.00 in Extra Care Bucks.  I ended up paying .71 plus .87 in tax for a grand total of $1.58 out of pocket.  I also got $6.00 in additional Extra Care Bucks to use on my next shopping trip.   I purchased 1 Bag of M&Ms Easter Candy, 1 Tube of Colgate Total, 1 Pantene Conditioner, 1 Pantene Shampoo, and 1 Pack of Stride Gum.   Not bad for less than $2.00!

Free shopping at Menards yesterday

April 7, 2010

Went to Menards yesterday to get my weekly free stuff. The free items I ended up with were 1 Roofing Square, 1 Oil Pan, 5 tubes of Seam Sealer, 1 Gutter Scoop, 2 jugs of House Wash, 2 Tape Measures, and 4 Packs of Ray-O-Vac Batteries. I also bought a Swivel Sweeper, a large Entry Mat, and a bottle of Vegetation Killer. My total with tax was $75.72 but I had 3 rebates from previous weeks which I used to pay. Total out of pocket spent $0. I still have $14.78 left over on one of the rebates, and I will be getting back $44.00 in additional rebates in approximately three weeks. I am waiting on a few more rebates that should be arriving any day now. Hopefully they will be here in time for next weeks shopping trip.
