Shopping Sprees

April 30th, 2010 at 06:19 pm

Yesterday I went to Walgreens. It was $47 before coupons and store coupons. It was $22 after. I stocked up on toothpaste (like 12 tubes worth), lunch meat (good deal-2 packs on sale for $5 but I had coupons to get them down to 50 cents a package), deodorant, shampoo, razors, drink mix, and some other items. And, I have reward coupons for $8 off my next trip.

Today, I stopped by CVS. My coupons and store bonus bucks totalled $73.41. Yep, my bill started off close to $100 and then with the coupons and CVS bucks it came down to $27.10 with tax. Also, I earned more bonus bucks for my next trip. I got several items for free today, including cereal (8 boxes), 3 boxes of granola bars, and free irish spring bath wash. They were free because they were on sale, and I had coupons for the sale amount.

For 50 cents I got more cereal, crest pro health 1 liter bottle, stayfree and 2 tubs of huggies babywipes. Then I had several items that after the sale price and coupon I only had to pay a dollar or less for, including deodorant, dish soap, pop tarts and paper towels (which I rarely buy as rags are reusable).

I have also noticed that the CVS store (which isn't in our town, but in the next town over where we go several times a week) the milk is about 75 cents a gallon cheaper for the same brand we normally buy. So, I have started buying some of my milk at CVS. On todays receipt I noticed if I buy 1 more gallon I will earn another $3 of bonus bucks, and if I use my green bag tag 1 more time I get another $1.

They guy in line behind me was impressed. He wanted to either marry me, to which I told him no, so then he wanted me to come home with him and teach his wife how to shop. I gave him my blog address and thriftyfun.com as well as savingadvice.com. Wonder if they will use it??
