I had a pretty good trip to Walgreens this week. most figured out what my store wants in terms of coupons, ect... So even though they were out of Coffee Mate, Red Barron Pizza, and Glade Sense and Spray I did get some good deals.
Sammy The Hairspray 5.99 BOGO free - $2.25 coupon from Kroger mailer
Garnier Hairspray 2.99 sale price - $2 ES coupon and $1 mfg coupon
Irish Spring Body Wash 3.99 sale price - $1 from mailer
Sammy Hair Gel 5.99 BOGO free - $5.99 because BOGO free
Dry Idea Roll-on 2.19 sale price - $2.00 IP (I can not still find this one)
J&J Lotion .99 reg price - $.99 from weekly inserts
Used $3.50 RR from last week's toothpaste deal.
Total OOP $4.99 and I received $2 RR from the Dry Idea and $4.49 RR for the Irish Spring Bodywash.
Not to bad for a quick late night trip. Oh and to up date on my missing rebate, due to a technical error my card was not reloaded so they mailed me a new one with my rebates loaded on it. She said it was mailed 3-5. I hope it shows up soon.
I am excited to be on Rite Aides email list now. So click here for your coupon good 3/13 & 3/14.

I was asked the 2 (I think) most common questions. The first "Is it worth the effort?" and the second "Isn't generic cheaper?".
For me the answer to the first question is yes it is worth the effort. I love getting good deals. I love getting stuff for free. It makes me feel good and I am able to give more items to our local charity. Plus I don't spend as much on groceries. I am defiantly learning in this area.
The answer to the second question is no generic is not always cheaper. I do still buy some generic. It has a good price when items I need are not on sale. With Kroger and Walmart being my only real options in my small town I have found I can get the deals without buying generic.
As I mentioned in the meeting this morning I am going to do a better job at letting you know the deals as I get them and try to provide more links to coupons and sites I use for more information.
Sandy at Organizing with Sandy has some thoughts on this too. She is trying to work out the coupon thing.
I hope to be able to post pictures of my coupon binder soon.
