So I've been couponing again or at least searching for the bargains. I really had no intentions on heading to Walgreen's this week since there were really no amazing coupon deals that struck me. However, as luck would have it, I am sick AGAIN. For like the 1,000th time this year. I am on my 3rd bout of strep throat of 2011, everyone say "AWWW. Poor baby!" So I had to head to Walgreen's to pick up an antibiotic and some other drugs. I still had my $4.00 Register Rewards from my trip last week. I had peeked at my "go-to" websites and had my eye on some deodorant. My trip was very simple and I earned another $4.00 Register Rewards for next week. Although the crayons are not from Walgreen's I had Scott step out of his comfort zone and ask for a price match at Wal Mart while he was there picking up oil stuff for his motorcycle.
1 3 ring binder
6 2 pocket folder (I still need to get 4 more for Camden's list)
2 Crayola crayons
1 male Mitchum deodorant
1 female Mitchum deodorant
All for a total of...$2.42 (not including my drugs...prescription drugs...not backstreet drugs). Plus I have $4.00 Register Rewards for next week at Walgreen's. I am really loving that I have been chipping away at Camden's school supply list slowly. I only have a few more things to pick and I am waiting for a really good sale on Crayola Washable Markers...come on big money, come to mamma. My toiletry and grocery budget for the remainder of the month is pretty slim, I think I got a little too excited on last Friday with couponing and spent more than intended. With what I already have stocked in my pantry and freezer, I am not feeling strained. I'm going to double check tonight to see if there are any must haves at Copp's, I think the Cascade Rinse Aid is free with the right coupons, so I might check that out. Happy Shopping. Anybody have any great savings tips or shopping trips you want to share?
