Friday Savings

Last night at Walgreens, I spent $1.77 and saved $14.86. Campbells chicken noodle and tomato soup were on sale for $.50 + $.40 coupon(us & charity), Tuf paper towel roll $.49(charity), Reach toothbrush $2.99 + $2 register rewards + $1 coupon(charity), Walgreens soap $.33, and a rain check for Aquafresh toothpaste $.99. I also had $8 in register rewards to use from last week. This shopping trip was as interesting as last week. The cashier didn't know how to use a rain check so he had to ask someone else. The other guy showed him how to do it twice, but when he tried it on his own, it didn't work. By the time, he was done figuring it out, I knew how to put a rain check in the cash register! The coupon for the Walgreens soap was 3 for $1 and he couldn't figure out how to calculate it, so I had to tell him to ring 2 at $.33 and one at $.34. Also, only 2 of my register rewards went through, so I had to tell him to put in the third one again, because I told him I calculate everything ahead of time so I know how much the total should be. When I told my dad about my shopping trip, he said he would like to go with me sometime because it sounds like a lot of fun to shop with me!

At CVS, I spent $6.70 and saved $17.79. Colgate Sensitive toothpaste was on sale for $3.79 + $3.79 extra bucks + 2 - $1.00 coupons(charity), and Speed Stick deodorant $2.99 + $2 extra bucks + $.50 coupon. I also bought some Valentine's candy for 1/2 off. I had $3.99 in extra bucks to use from last week and $3 off $15 coupon from CVS' email.

Today at Walmart, I spent $64.25 and had $2.05 in coupons. I bought a $25 gift card for my Uncle's birthday, so my actual grocery shopping cost was only $39.25. Not bad considering my parents are coming over Sat. night for dinner. I also had a coupon from the internet for a free cleaning cloth and cleaner from the eye care center. They were out of the cleaner, so they just gave us 2 cloths.

At Vons, I spent $18.64 and saved $17.79, which is 49%. Gala apples were on sale for $.88/pound, round steak $2.49/pound, chicken of the sea tuna $.50(us & charity), and yellow onions $.99/pound. I also had to buy cheddar fried onions because they didn't have them at Walmart. There's a 10% back to schools on escrip located on the bottom of my receipt. I just entered it online and my son's high school band will receive $1.14!

At Ralphs, I spent $9.19 and saved $17.10. Gatorade was on sale for $.69 + $1 coupon, and Kraft bbq sauce $.89. You receive these prices if you buy a total of 10 items, and also you get $3 to use on your next purchase. Not a bad deal!
