Walgreens 12/16

This trip to Walgreens was to pickup a few things just to use up my SJC before they expired. I am teaching some coupon workshops in January so I am stockpiling my giveaways. I also wanted to try some of the Zarbee Cough syrup so I picked some up. I was in and out of the store in 15 minutes, none of my coupons beeped and the associate was very polite. All of these things are rare occurences at Walgreens. So what did I get: 2 Bags of Butterfinger Jingles- stocking stuffers, 2 Olay Body Wash, 1 pack of Goody Hair Ties, 1 Zarbee Cough syrup. My total was $26.45 before coupons, after coupons it was $18.00 I used my $10 SJC from last week leaving me to pay $8.03 OOP. I got back $6.00 in JC so $2.03 for over $26.00 worth of goodies.

Rite Aid 12/9

So this week I did not really need much but I had some Up rewards that were about to expire so I headed out to the store. I picked up 2 boxes of glad trash bags, 1 pack of 12 roll toilet paper, and 1 pack of 8 roll paper towels, and a bottle of water. Before coupons my total was $26.00. I used a combination of coupons, ad perk videos and UP rewards and paid only $1.99. I got back $3.00 in UP rewards which I will be using this week.

Threw away money

I am so frustrated today. I cleaned out my coupon binder and purse on Friday. Today I was reading info on different sites and learned that Rite Aid has changed their Gift of Savings promotion. I threw away my receipts on Friday so I missed out my opportunity to get my $20.00 gift certificate. I am thinking I might still have time to get it in before the end of the month but I am going to have to do some serious shopping and planning. I am very limited on fun money now that I am going to be starting the new year without a job. Oh well.

Success at Home Depot

Joshua decided that today was going to be the day to get all the little projects done on his "to do" list. So he made a list of things he needed at Home Depot and set out on his way. On his list was light bulbs. He purchased 16 light bulbs for $2.79. I think every light in our house was replaced today. Yeah. I am so excited to have a light in my closet again . Thanks Honey!
