Friday Savings

A new Walgreens opened close to my daughter's dance studio, so yesterday after I dropped her off, I walked over there to buy items from their sales flier. The walk wasn't bad, only 10 minutes each way, so I will definitely walk there every week. I spent $13.86 and saved $12.90. Walgreens liquid soap was on sale for $.79(charity), Lays Stax $.99. Mentos $.39, and Blink Tears(charity) $7.99 + $7.99 in register rewards to use next time + $1 coupon. You don't use a store rewards card to shop here, the register rewards just automatically prints out. I think I drove the poor cashier crazy with all my questions about how their system works! :)

Yesterday at CVS, I spent $6 and saved $10.75. Valentine's M&Ms were on sale for 2 for $5 + $1 extra bucks + $1 coupon, Cheezits 2 for $6 + $2 extra bucks, and Sweethearts $.88. I also had $4.88 in extra bucks to use from last time to help pay for my purchases.

Today at Walmart, I spent $64.66 and had $10.53 in coupons. I liked using all those coupons! I had a few expensive extras to buy this week, but luckily I had coupons for them. I had a coupon for $2 off Kotex pads, bogo free for Stayfree overnight pads - which was $5.28, $1 off Covergirl eyeshadow, and $1 off my son's one-a-day teen vitamins. The other couple of coupons were off small items.

At Vons, I spent $24.47 and saved $30.43. Keebler Fudge Shoppe cookies were on sale for $1.67, Dole juice $1.88, Lucerne ice cream $1.99, Nabisco crackers $.99 + $1 coupon, Trix/Gogurt $1.77 + $.75 coupon, and Barilla pasta $.88.

At Ralphs, I spent $10.64 and saved $25.45. Avocados were on sale for $.47 each, Del Monte can vegetables $.49(us & charity), Kelloggs cereal $1.99 + $.70 coupon + $.50 coupon, Dinty Moore $.79, Quaker rice cakes $1.29, and Colgate toothpaste $.98 + $.75 coupon(charity).
