Another reason it takes us so long – we hit multiple stores. This might seem crazy for someone to spend a whole day hopping from Walgreens to Walgreens – but the different locations around on here have different stock days, and different areas don’t as many couponers.
I have a couple more quick trips tomorrow I think, especially since I have found a couple new locations for stores! I don’t think my shopping is ever done.
The cherry on top of the day was what I got when I found home, two coupon packets, a free sample and a couple bags of gluten free treats I won in a giveaway for National Celiac’s Month.
The Soft Soap is currently on sale for 2/$6 and then you get $4 RR.
And here is the deal on the Reach Toothbrushes, Walgreens is having a deal until next Saturday (May 28th) – here is the coupon deal if you have them:
Buy 2 Toothbrushes – Get $1 RR
Buy 3 Toothbrushes – Get $2 RR
Buy 4 Toothbrushes – Get $4 RR
Use 4 $1/1 Reach Toothbrushes (4/17 SS) -OR-
Use 2 $2/2 Reach Toothbrushes (5/8 SS)
So if you use your coupons, and buy 4 toothbrushes, you will walk out with a $4 overage.
This isn’t exactly what I did today- I did not have any coupons with me- I’m actually going to look to see if I have the 5/8 coups in a few when I hit the next Walgreens tomorrow.
Tonight’s trip broke down a little differently – I had two bottles of soft soap and 4 toothbrushes – total $10.56 starting out. I paid $6 with RR from Walgreen’s trips earlier today and paid $4.56 out of pocket. The cashier was a little snippy due to it getting towards the end of her shift. But her attitude changed when my first $4 RR from the Soft Soap printed out she said “Wow you just paid 56 cents for all this!” and she turned to hand me my receipt and RR, but she stopped when the machine started to spit out another $4 RR. “WAIT? You just got paid to take stuff?” This got the attention of the security guard who stopped me so I could explain to him how I did it.
Yes.. that’s right- I got stopped by Security to explain how to coupon. This was amazing to me!
You might be asking why I needed 4 more toothbrushes, didn’t I just get 6 last week? Yes I did, and I plan on going to get 4 more tomorrow at Walgreens if they actually have it. Why you might ask? To donate – just like the extra body washes I’ve been getting for pennies. No I’m not going to make boyfriend swim in mens body wash- there are a lot of people in the area who can use it, and if I can help out I would like to.
A funny side note on the toothbrushes (or ironic at least). A few weeks back we had a plumbing explosion. As I was trying to clean it up, I somehow knocked BOTH of our toothbrushes onto the dirty floor. In an older home without a dishwasher there was no way to save them. My funds were super low that day but I went out and used the rest of what I had for toothbrushes, I think they may have been on sale, but I may have spend $10 on them – my last $10 for the week or maybe two. The last couple weeks I have purchased 10 toothbrushes for under $4 TOTAL..
This is the difference between couponing and not couponing to me.. even if I donate half of the ones I buy, we wont run out or I wont have to spend my last dollars to make sure we can do basic day to day things.
Let me know what other deals you found out there! very day! Thank you for your support!
