This week was RIDICULOUSLY awesome for me in the thrifty department. I made 2 trips to Walgreen’s (one using hubby for another transaction), and a trip to Old Navy.
On my first trip to Walgreen’s, I was accompanied by Greg. Because of this, we could double up on stuff & do separate transactions. (It actually ended up being 3 transactions because the RR weren’t printing for anything but the chapstick when we went in the first time, so all we got was 1 chapstick each & the toothbrushes…LAME.) We went back after church and got all that we needed since they fixed the problem with the RR. So, I’m combining those 3 transactions into one blob…here’s the rundown.
Walgreen’s Drain Opener – 3.49 (needed it, and it didn’t work…total waste of $)
Oral-B Toothbrush – $3 x 2 = $6 ($3 RR each) = FREE (we’ll receive these in the mail after we send in the form w/ receipt)
Blue Diamond Almonds – 3.49 x 4 = 13.96 – 6.98 (B1G1 Free) = 4/6.98 (Greg wanted these…I figured he deserved it for accompanying me to WG.)
Chapstick – 2.99 x 3 = 8.97 ($3 RR each) = FREE
Herbal Essences Hair Gel – 2.99 – $1 coupon = 1.99 ($2 RR) = FREE
Newspaper – .75 (for coupon inserts)
Emergen-C Shots – 3.49 x 2 = 6.98 ($3.50 RR each) = FREE
Robitussin To-Go 2pk. – 2.49 x 2 = 4.98 ($2.50 RR each) = FREE
Vaseline Sheer Infusion Lotion – 6.99 x 2 = 13.98 – (2) 1.50 coupon = 10.98 ($7 RR each) = $3 Moneymaker
Tennis Balls – 3.99 (For Greg to play tennis with the guys.)
Trip 1 total = 54.01 (after coupons & RR from previous week) + it printed $37 in RR + I’ll get $6 in the mail. So everything above ended up costing us $11.01 after taxes.
For trip #2 my friend Sarah & I hit the Walgreen’s in Jonesboro. We went to Jonesboro to shop at Old Navy…for a bit of a change of pace from the one in Branson, since we have depleted it of everything we like. We used the plan from STLMommy’s site
as a general guideline.
The Office Trivia game – 3.74 (totally couldn’t pass that one up…LOVE The Office!)
Gillette Embrace Razor – 7.99 – $2 coupon = 5.99 ($4 RR) = 1.99
Gillette Fusion Razor – 8.99 – $4 coupon = 4.99 ($6 RR) = $1 Moneymaker
Starbucks Chocolate Truffles – 1.59 (these were on clearance & I have a weakness for chocolate and/or coffee)
Halls Refresh – $1 – .75 coupon = .25 ($1 RR) = .75 Moneymaker
Robitussin To-Go 2pk – 2.49 (2.50 RR) = FREE
Vaseline Sheer Infusion Lotion – 6.99 – 1.50 coupon = 5.49 ($7 RR) = 1.50 Moneymaker
Chapstick 2.99 ($3 RR) = FREE
Sally Hansen Fingernail Polish – 2.79 x 2 = 5.58 – $3 coupon = 2.58
Emergen-C Shots – 3.49 (3.50 RR) = FREE
I also used a $5/$25 Walgreen’s coupon.
Trip 2 total = 31.22 after all coupons (there was a .50 coupon on my receipt and I have no idea what it was for) + it printed $27 in RR. So…everything from trip 2 cost me 4.22 after taxes.
Next up is one of my FAVORITE stores ever…Old Navy. I had a $50/$100 coupon from Oldnavyweekly.com
last week, and since spending $50 at Old Navy is not in my budget, I grabbed a friend (Sarah) to split it with. Here’s the rundown of my half…
Space Monkey & Robot Pajamas for Grayson – Reg. 14.50/ea, on sale for 2/$20, after coupon 5.06/each
Cinch Waist Jacket for me – Reg. 39.50, on sale for 22.49, special extra 50% off = 11.24, after coupon 5.68
Belted Cargo Pants for Greg – Reg. 34.50, on sale for 17.99, after coupon 8.89
Travel Lotion – Reg. 3.50/ea, on sale for 2.49/ea, after coupon 1.26/ea
My total before tax = 28.47
And now…Alice.com. I periodically check the deals at Alice.com since there is free shipping, and whaddya know, I had a gift certificate…again.
I got Downy Wrinkle Releaser, 2 Hills Bros. Cappucino, & 3 boxes of AZO Tabs…for FREE!
Last, but not least…Schwan’s. I received my FREE gallon of Butter Pecan Ice Cream last Thursday. I keep forgetting it is in there since we rarely have ice cream in the house, which is probably a good thing! The first 500,000 new customers get to order a free food item from a list…I picked ice cream. =) Go HERE
