Thrifty Thursday

Okay, I’ve been totally slacking this week and didn’t really get that great of deals at Walgreens. I do plan on going back later today and making up for my WG neglect. So far, all I’ve done is:

Burt’s Bees Lip Balm – FREE (Coupon from the website)
Propel Flavored Water – .64 (used .75 off coupon) – not something I would normally buy…I was thirsty.
Coloring Books 2/$5 – Cheap entertainment for 2 y/o while at coffee w/ my friends.
Planter’s Trail Mix 2/$3 – Snack to distract kids for above mentioned coffee date. ($1 RR)
I also used (2) $3 RR from a previous transaction making my OOP $3.50. (I tried to use another $3 RR but they don’t cover tax and the tax was more than .50.)
I plan on hitting the Aquafresh Toothpaste this afternoon, Pull-ups, and Organix Shampoo/Conditioner if they have the hangtags. I’ve noticed our Walgreens is kinda bad about not having the hangtags when there’s a special…not sure if they’re doing it on purpose. Actually, I’ve never seen hangtags at our Walgreens now that I think about it. Well, I guess I’ll find out later. I hope to update this with some pictures, so check back! =)
Okay, I’m back from 2 trips to WG today. Separate trips because I had time to kill in the morning, but wouldn’t be coming home until this afternoon so I couldn’t get milk. Anyways, here is what I got in both trips combined:
(2) Oreo Cakesters – 2/$5 (had $1 coupon)
(3) Mars Candy FREE – (had 3 FREE coupons from mail)
(6) Kotex Pantyliner – 2.99/ea (used 4 coupons for a total of 4.50 off and $6 in RR)
(2) Aquafresh Toothpaste – $3/ea (used 2 coupons for a total of $1.75 off and $6 in RR)
Accu-Chek Glucose meter – 14.99 (rebate in box & $5 in RR)
(2) Schick Quatro Titanium 4 cartridge pk – 10.99/ea (used rain check for B1G1 & 2 coupons for a total of $8 off)
Not pictured:
Starbucks Frappucino – 2.39 (had $1 coupon and NEEDED caffeine)
(2) 2% milk – on sale for 2.59/ea
Needless to say, I don’t think I’ll be buying anymore pantiliners for quite awhile. LOL Plus, I’ve been feeling a bit funky lately, and think it might be my blood sugar, so I’ve been wanting one of those checkers anyway.
Original Total Before Tax & Coupons: 75.49
After coupons & tax: 33.67 (Plus I will be getting the 14.99 back in the mail & I have RR to use next week…I’d have to say that was pretty decent.)

  1. I love the library! We're participating in the summer program this year too. We did it last year, and had so much fun. Oh, and I also LOVE Diane Mott Davidson! Her books are the BEST. Could we have anymore in common?

  2. you would think the librarians would make sure that "quiet" toys were given out, since they always stress the importance of quietness.

  3. This sounds like a very cool summer program at the library. I haven't been to our local library to sign my 5 year old up yet. I better get on it. Thanks for sharing.
