It is hot and I am tired, but I had such a nice time coupon shopping today that I had to share. My first stop was SuperTarget and the results for $10.10 are shown below.
I had a buy one get one free (BOGO) from Bear Naked’s Facebook Page, so one of those cereals were free, though the coupon was causing trouble, so the cashier had to manually insert it as a miscellaneous coupon. I also had a 50 cent off Target coupon that I stacked with it, so I got the two cereals for 3.29. Both Raviolis were free after a $1 off Target Coupon. The FiberPlus bars were originally 2.69, but I had dollar off coupons for both plus a dollar off two Target coupon for a net cost of 1.19 for each box. Lastly, I needed Shower Cleaner and have been wanting to try the Extend-A-Clean. It was on sale for 6.99 and I had a $3 off coupon. Naturally, I brought my own bag for another nickel off:).
My next stop was Walgreens. Generally at Walgreens I try to do several small trips, allowing me to “roll” Register Rewards (use the RR from one item to pay for something different on another trip that then produces a different RR), but it’s hot out, and Walgreens is running a Friends and Family 15% discount with a coupon available through Facebook (“like” Walgreens and you can find it), so I decided to just do all the RR items at once and hope for alot of things to buy with them next week:). My out of pocket cost was $27.10 but I got back $19 in Register Rewards which I always spend and rarely waste them on something I wouldn’t buy anyway, so I consider them to be as good as cash back. My trip is shown below.
I had a raincheck for the 6 bags of Goldfish for 99 cents each (84 cents after F&F discount), plus 2 coupons for 50 cents off. The vitamins and contact solution produced Register Rewards for their full price, plus I had a dollar off coupon for the vitamins and lucked into a peel off coupon for the solution right on the box. Tea bags were on sale for 2.10 (after discount and a Wags coupon) plus I had 40 cent coupons off each one (one from my paper, one from a neighbor who kindly brought me his inserts yesterday). Visine was 1.69 after discount and in ad coupon, plus I had 1.00 off. The Tide was on sale and came to 5.09 after discount, plus I had 1.00 off and also got back RR on that one.
Those were my two big shopping coups today. I did also stop by the “bread store” (Aunt Millie Outlet store) in the hopes of scoring some cheap english muffins and bagels. Unfortunately, the place was almost cleaned out. All I could get was two packs of whole wheat bagels for 1.09 each. Cheaper than the grocery store, but alot more than they usually cost there.
Picked up two Sam’s Club roasted chickens for dinner (too hot to cook) for 4.99 each. We’ll eat a little more than half of the chicken today and I’ll use the rest for enchiladas later in the week.
My last stop was Meijers. They had Honey Nut Cherrios large boxes (25.25 oz) on sale for 2.99. These are about twice the size of the standard boxes. I had several 1.00 off 2 coupons that were about to expire, so I bought 9 boxes despite still having about 8 boxes in storage due to a rebate offer last month. Still, my son eats almost 2 boxes a week and they are good until Sept 2011, so it was worth stocking up.
Hope you are having as much fun and luck saving money. Let me know how it goes.
