This week I feel like I was the Thrifty Queen. I made another
trip to Old Navy
(I have a feeling hubby is going to cut me off soon) using the $50/100 coupon I found at oldnavyweekly.com
, grabbed a decent amount of school supplies at Staples
, and I scored big at Walgreens
with a combination of coupons, Register Rewards
, and a rebate.
From Old Navy I got the girls each a shirt for school, Greg 2 polo shirts, Grayson a Spider-Man T-shirt, and for myself…2 shirts, 1 shorts, 1 capris, and 1 pants. They were offering an additional 50% off clearance items, so 4/5 of my items were from there. The polo’s were 2/$24.99 (originally 19.50 each), and the girls shirts were on sale, but I can’t remember what it was exactly. I do know, after adding all the original amounts on the tags, this would have cost me $202.50 + tax…I paid $55.84 after taxes.
At Staples, (I don’t have a picture for my Staples trip…everything got divided up between the kids before I had a chance to get out the camera.) I got 5 pkg. wide ruled filler paper .01/ea, 2 reams of printer paper $5.99/ea (3.99/ea Easy Saver rebate so really $2/each after rebate), 3 1-subject spiral notebooks .75/ea, Watercolors .90 (accidentally bought these instead of markers…oops!), 8.5×11 Dry Erase board 5.00 (Greg’s been wanting one of these…figured he deserved a surprise!), 3 24-ct. Crayola crayons .59/ea, 3 pkg. 4-glue sticks .99/ea, 2 3-hole zipper pouches 2.00/ea. Total of $31.24 after tax plus I’ll get a check for 7.98 (Easy Saver Rebate).
I did 4 transactions at Walgreens…

Transaction #2 – Dove Shampoo & Conditioner, Dawn Dish Soap, 2 Skippy Peanut Butter, 4 Ragu Spaghetti Sauce, 2 pkg. pencils, 2 scissors, 2 pencil sharpeners, 1 pkg. highlighters: 2/6.00 + .99 + 2/4.00 + 4/8.00 + 2/.38 + 2/1.98 + 2/1.18 + .29 – 4.80C – 7.50 RR = 10.52+tax (10.00 RR)

Transaction #4 – 2 Special K Cereal, Gum Toothbrushes: 2/5.00 + 3.49 – 1.00C = 7.49+tax (2.00RR + 3.50RR)
Grand Total: 32.59+tax (plus I have 12.50RR + $10 rebate check + $70 Dell coupon code)
Whew! I am worn out from all that saving! Think I’ll take a few days off of shopping… Wait…nope, I can’t. Gotta go grocery shopping on Friday…well, I guess 1 day off will have to do. Prepare yourself, Walmart…I’m coming w/ coupons in hand!
