My Walgreens & CVS & Vons & Ralphs Shopping Trip


Yesterday at Walgreens, I spent $6.95 and saved $10.45, which is 61%. I would have saved more, but the register wouldn't let me use one of my $4 register rewards. The fine print says the # of coupons/rewards can't outnumber the # of items. Well, I bought 6 items and had 6 coupons/rewards, but it would only take 5. I asked for the manager, but he said he couldn't override the system. I told him I didn't want to lose my $4 when the rewards expire next week, so he gave me $4 on a Walgreens gift card instead. So, here's what I bought:
1 Ajax $.59
4 bags M & Ms $10.00 - 2 $1.00 coupons = $8.00 + $5.00 in register rewards to use next week
1 Carmex lip balm $1.50 - $.30 coupon = $1.20 + $1.50 in register rewards to use next week

I also had $3.00 in register rewards to help pay for this trip.


Today at CVS, I spent $7.13 and saved $21.68, which is 76%. Here's what I bought:
2 Dawn $.99 each - $.75 coupon - $.50 coupon = $.73
3 Pop Tarts $5.00 - $1.00 coupon = $4.00
3 Puffs $2.97 - $.25 coupon = $2.72
2 Gold Emblem pasta $.88 each = $1.76
2 Oral B floss for braces $1.99 each - $.75 coupon = $3.23 + $2.00 extra bucks

I also had $6.00 in extra bucks to use from last week to help pay for this trip. I also earned $5.00 in extra bucks for accumulating $50.00 in beauty care purchases.


At Vons, I spent $13.34 and saved $13.94, which is 51%. I would have saved more, but I had to buy whipping cream for 2 recipes and it wasn't on sale. Here's what I bought:
2 Dryers $2.79 each = $5.58
3 Danon/Danino $1.49 each = $4.47
1 Fresh Express Salad $2.50 - $2.50 coupon from Vocalpoint = Free
1 Lucerne whipping cream $3.29


At Ralphs, I spent $10.00 and saved $5.96, which is 38%. Here's what I bought:
4 Deluxe ice cream $2.50 each = $10.00
