Friday Savings

Yesterday at Walgreens, I spent $.95 and saved $13.50! Ocean Spray juice was on sale for $2.99 + $2 register rewards(charity), aluminum foil $.69(charity), Sweethearts $.79, Barbasol $.99(charity), and Right Guard Body Wash $4.99 + $1 instant coupon + $3 register rewards(charity). I also had $8 in register rewards to use from last week. There were several other items on sale, but since this is a brand new Walgreens, they don't have a lot of products in stock. So, I was only able to get a rain check for one of the items. By the way, since they're a new store, most of the employees are new too, and aren't always sure about what to do. The Right Guard that I bought had an instant coupon on it, and the cashier didn't remove it, which I didn't realize until I had walked out the door. I walked right back in and she didn't know what to do, so she asked a manager. He wasn't sure, so he asked another manager. It took him awhile to figure it out, but he refunded the product then rang it up again using the coupon. Well, since it had register rewards, it printed again. I told him I shouldn't receive it twice, but he said he would just throw it away and since I was so patient with them, I could just have it. So, I ended up with an extra $3 in register rewards!

At CVS, I spent $4.99 and saved $15.46. M & M's were on sale again 2 for $5 + $1 extra bucks + $1 coupon, Stride Spark gum $.99 + $.99 extra bucks, and Quaker Oatmeal 2 for $5 + $1 coupon + $1 coupon + $2 extra bucks. I also had $3 in extra bucks to use to pay for the purchase.

Today at Walmart, I spent $73.66 and had $3.87 in coupons. This trip was a little more than average because I needed to buy pork chops for $15.55 and my 4 year old's Valentine's present for $16.97.

At Vons, I spent $14.57 and saved $18.81, which is 56%. Pepperidge Farms cookies were on sale for $1.88, asparagus $.99/pound, and Lucerne ice cream $1.99. Last week at another store, asparagus was on sale for $1.99, which I thought was a good price, but $.99 is even better. So, we are going to eat asparagus this week too!

At Ralphs, I spent $3.89 and saved $3.73. Broccoli and cauliflower were on sale for $.88/pound, and Colgate toothbrush for $.98(charity).
