Thrifty Thursday

This week was a good one for me at Walgreens. I didn’t get a paper this weekend, so since I didn’t have the coupons from it I had to dive into my stash. I researched and prepared before leaving by checking the Walgreen’s site (and printing the $5 off $25 coupon), Madame Deals Walgreens Rock Bottom Deals page, and STL Mommy’s Walgreens Weekly page. Okay…on to the thrifty-ness.
First of all, I took advantage of the Walgreen’s FUNDAY photo code and picked up an 8×10 photo collage yesterday for FREE. (Not sure why I was able to do this on Tuesday since it was supposedly a code for Wednesday, but I’m not gonna complain!)
Today, my friend Sarah and I (and Grayson, of course) went to Walgreen’s. I got the following items for $51.04 after tax and using $12 in RR from last week’s trip.

I’m going to go in order on my receipt so I don’t get confused…it doesn’t take much. ;)
Eggs – on sale for .99
Milk – 2.59 x 2 = 5.18 – .75 coupon (w/ purchase of Welch’s grape jelly) = 4.43
Lysol Fresh Matic – 6.49 (on sale 50% off) – 4.00 coupon = 2.49
30oz. Germ-X – on sale for 1.99
Housetop Erasers – .50 x 2 = 1.00 (on sale)
Kellogg’s Cereal – 2.50 x 2 = 5.00 – 1.00 coupon = 4.00 (+ $2 RR)
Smooth Away Hair Remover – 9.99 – 1.00 coupon = 8.99 (didn’t really need this, but I’ve been wanting to try it and review it…so we’ll say it’s ‘work related’ hehe)
ThermaCare – on sale for 5.99 – 3.00 coupon (w/ purchase of Advil) = 2.99
Advil PM – on sale for 4.49 – 2. 00 coupon = 2.49 ( + $4 RR when you buy ThermaCare + Advil)
Goody Hair Elastics – 2.99 (+ $2 RR – with 3 girls we can always use ponytail holders)
Welch’s Grape Jelly – 2.79 – .75 coupon = 2.04 (needed this & wanted to use the milk coupon)
Pamper’s Easy-Ups – on sale for 8.99 x 2 = 17.98 – 1.50 coupon x2 = 14.98 (+ $1 RR)
Child’s Benedryl liquid – on sale for 4.99 – 1.00 WG coupon – 1.00 coupon = 2.99
Child’s Benedryl fast melts – on sale for 4.99 – 1.00 WG coupon – 1.00 coupon = 2.99 (+ $5 RR when you buy 2 Benedryl)
Geisha Tuna – on sale for .59 x 3 = 1.77 (using WG in ad coupon)
Rimmel Lip Liner (not pictured) – 2.09 (on sale 40% off) – 1.00 coupon = 1.09
Listerine Smart Rinse – on sale 4.00 – 1.00 WG coupon – 1.00 coupon = 2.00
Listerine Agent Cool Blue – on sale 4.00 – 4.00 (B1G1 FREE coupon) – 1.00 WG coupon = + 1.00 (+ $3 RR)
Sun Laundry Detergent – on sale 2.99 (needed this & thought we’d try this brand since it was so cheap)
Total = 62.21 (before tax) – $5 coupon ($5 off $25 purchase) – $12 RR (from WG trip last week) = 45.21 + 5.83 tax = 51.04 total
I also received $17 in RR to use next week, and got a rain check on 50% off Airwick Motion Detector Spray thing…I can’t remember exactly what it’s called. I have a $6.00 coupon so it should only cost me a little over $1…we’ll see. =) According to my receipt, my total savings was $69.77. Woot!
Oh, before I forget. Somehow I remembered awhile ago I had won a $10 Gift Certificate to Alice.com. Shipping is always free on Alice.com, so I figured I’d grab a few things we needed w/ my GC.
I ordered:
Aim Anticavity Fluoride Gel Toothpaste, Cascade Dishwasher Detergent Concentrated Pacs, Suave Shampoo, Suave Conditioner, 2 Lady Speed Stick Antiperspirant Deodorants, 2 Cottonelle Toilet Paper 4-roll packs
My order is already on the way and was totally FREE. Plus I had a problem with my GC, and required assistance with my order. ‘Tara’ helped me through the online chat, and was friendly and helpful. (I will attach a pic of my order when I receive it.)
So there ya go…my ‘Thrifty Thursday’. I must say that even though I planned on taking it easy this week at Walgreen’s, I’m glad I didn’t…I’m pretty proud of my savings. Link up using the MckLinky below and share your savings!
