Thrifty Thursday

This is my first time posting a ‘Thrifty Thursday’, but not my first time being thrifty at Walgreens! =) I have finally started stockpiling coupons (when I remember to buy a newspaper on Sunday), so I was able to use those rather than scouring the internet for printables. I got some really good deals on some of the stuff I bought…other things we just needed.
Here was my Monday trip to Walgreens:
WG green bags reg .99/each were 3/.99 using the WG ad coupon.
Mac & Cheese reg 1.59 were .69/each using the WG ad coupon.
Cottonelle Fresh Wipes reg 3.79 were 1.99 using the WG ad coupon, plus I had a coupon for .50 off.
Nicotine Lozenges (Greg is quitting in 2 weeks!) reg 24.99 was on sale for 19.99, and had a $5 RR.
M&M’s were on sale 2/$5, had a $1 RR, and I had a coupon for $1 off. (Couldn’t pass up a deal on chocolate…)
Visine Eye Wipes (can also be used to remove eye make-up) were on sale for 4.99, and I had a coupon for $3 off. (This was a need since I ran out of my eye make-up remover.)
Schick Quattro Titanium Razor reg 9.49 was B1G1, and I was able to use a $4 off coupon for each. (Making the total for both razors 1.49…WOOHOO!)
Gilette Fusion Razor reg 9.49, I used a $4 off coupon, plus it had a $2.50 RR.
St. Ives Body Wash reg 3.49 on sale for 2.99, plus it had a $3 RR.
L’Oreal HiP Eyeshadow reg 7.99 was B1G1, plus I used a $2 off coupon for each. (This was also a need since someone broke my eyeshadow the other day.)
L’Oreal Mascara reg 6.99, I had a coupon for $1 off (Also a need…been putting off buying this for a long time.)
My original total came to 95.67 before tax. After all my coupons + $2 RR from a previous trip my pre-tax total was 48.49, and I received 11.50 in RR. Considering I bought stuff I normally wouldn’t like the lozenges and the make-up, I thought I did pretty good.
(I ended up sending Greg to WG on Tuesday to grab some milk, and had him pick up another St. Ives Body Wash, so another FREE after RR item.)
On Wednesday I made one more trip to Walgreens, since I was in town for coffee w/ my friends, I figured I might as well. (I left my receipt in the truck, which Greg has today, so this is all from memory…) I wanted to get the Schick Razor refills for B1G1, but they only had 1, so the cashier gave it to me for 1/2 price, plus I had a coupon for $4 off. I also grabbed more WG green bags, Mac & Cheese, and another St. Ives Body Wash…how could I pass up FREE? As a surprise, I got Greg some Axe Shampoo that was B1G1 50% off, and I used 2 $2/1 coupons making the total $5 for the shampoo. I love Walgreens!
