Another successful Walgreens trip!

So yesterday I took another trip to Walgreens. Although I could have made out a little better (there were 2 coupons I didn’t have), I think I did pretty good!

Here was the breakdown:

Transaction 1:

1 Stayfree pads – $2.99 (Receive $3RR)

1 Plackers dental picks – $2.00 (Receive $2RR)

1 Skintimate shave cream – $2.99 (Receive $3RR)

Total = $7.98 – $1/1 Stayfree coupon – $5RR from Pampers = OOP = $1.98 (plus tax) – Receive $3RR, $2RR, and $3RR

Transaction 2:

1 Stayfree pads – $2.99 (Receive $3RR)

1 Plackers dental picks – $2.00 (Receive $2RR)

Total = $4.99 – $1/1 Stayfree coupon – $3RR from Skintimate = OOP = $ .99 (plus tax) Receive $3RR and $2RR

Transaction 3:

1 Skintimate shave cream – $2.99 (Receive $3RR)

1 Nestle Crunch bar – $ .39

Total = $3.38 – $3RR from Stayfree = OOP = $ .38 (plus tax) Receive $3RR

Grand Total OOP = $3.36 (plus tax) and I received $10RR!!

My Walgreens trip

So the other day I went to Walgreens because they had a great deal on John Freida products…which my curly hair just loves! Here was the breakdown…

3/$5…spend $15 get $5 Register Rewards

So here is how it went:

1st transaction:

1 shampoo, 1 conditioner, 1 mousse

= $15 – (3) $2.50/1 coupons = $7.50 (received $5 RR)

2nd transaction:

1 mousse, 2 leave-in conditioners 

=$15 – (3) $2.50/1 coupons and $5 RR = $2.50 (received $5 RR)

Total OOP = $10.00 with $5 RR…equals about  $ .83 per item!!

coupons, coupons, coupons.

Okay, so I am back into my saving money kick.  I have been thoroughly inspired by reading many, many different blogs about how mom’s around the country are using coupons to actually make money with shopping! (who would have thought?!)  Let me tell you, this is not an easy thing to do! I have been reading a lot about CVS…and the different strategies you must use to spend pennies for bags of stuff!! I made my first CVS shopping trip yesterday. Mind you, I’m no where near being an expert in this field yet, but I am pretty proud of what I did! :) 

Okay, so this is what I bought!

Pantene Pro-V Natural Fusion Shampoo and Conditioner 

Cascade Dishwasher Detergent

Dawn Dish Soap

Dawn Hand Renewal Dish Soap

3 boxes of Puff tissues

16pk of Duracell AA batteries

16 big rolls of Charmin toilet paper

6 big rolls of Bounty paper towels

Scope Oulast mouthwash

2 – 12 packs of coke 

Vaseline Sheer Infusion body lotion

Total = $83.40

+ coupons and deals = $60.28

My extra care bucks (free money for next trip) = $20.50!!!

I basically paid $40 for all that stuff!  

I am super excited to really get into this and learn how to get the best deals possible! I love shopping, so what is more fun than shopping and basically making money! There is a lot to learn! I am going to become  a coupon queen and make Stephen’s hard earned money go as far as possible!! :) 

If you have any advice/tips, please let me know! :)
