I am so excited. I went to Walgreens today and they had everything I went for. I am shocked and excited. My Walgreens is ok but they are always out of something I am looking for and then it throws off my whole plan. But not today.
Transaction 1: 2 Clorox Wipes & 1 Clorox Bleach Spray. I had a coupon to buy 2 Clorox cleaning products get 1 free and 2 $1 RR. OOP $4.87 got $2 RR from Clorox products.
Transaction 2: Excedrin, Peter Pan, and Paper Towels. I had $1 off Excedrin and $. 50 off Peter Pan (IP), and used the $2 RR from transaction 1. OOP $1.70 with $1 RR remaining.
Our Walgreens does not allow you to have more coupons and RR than you have items so I had to paper towels as a filler. The cashier told me they look at RR as a coupon.
Still I got a really great deal.
Thanks Common Sense with Money for the Peter Pan Coupon.
I had a pretty good quick CVS trip today. I realized I had a $5 off $15 coupon expiring today and $6 ECBs from last week so I knew what ever I picked up would be free or almost anyway. So this is how it went.
Cereal Bars 2/$5 - $1 coupon for each
Soup BOGO at $1.69 each plus $1 off 2 printable
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder $8.49 get $5 ECB I had no coupon :(.
Total before sales and coupons.......
$25.15 ( including tax) less sales, coupons, and ECBs = total OOP $2.58.
Really good deal I think for a last minute quick trip.
While I was there I discovered my CVS is being remodeled. The store was a mess. Of course the sweet ladies at my CVS help me when ever I need it. But they have to deal with the noise and mess for 3 weeks. I hope they are still sweet when it is all over.
Thanks to Money Saving Madness for the Campbell's coupon.
