I really haven’t had much time or luck the past couple of weeks when it comes to deals, but this week looked promising and man, did I come home with a stash. I hit Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS, and Kroger all in the same afternoon. I haven’t taken a picture in awhile, so here are my goodies (expect for the things I got a Rite Aid since I completely forgot to include them) along with my goofy cat, Basil, who just had to check out what was going on:

Total with tax= $4.28
I will be getting $5.98 back in Single Check rebates

Walgreens:

I got back a $2 Register Reward from Listerine and will be getting $16.98 back in EasySaver rebates.

CVS:

2 bags of Lifesavers BOGO minus BOGO coupon = BOTH FREE

Minus $9 in ECBs
Total with tax= $.24
I got back $14.99 in ECBs.

And last, but not least: Kroger. I’ll just point out the great deals and spare you all the mundane details (after all, who really cares about how much I paid for my bananas?). I bought the following 10 participating items to get an extra $5 off my transaction (prices listed on these are after the $5 was taken off):
4 boxes of Kroger oatmeal (got to stock up for the winter months) $4

I think you can call that a mighty productive day!



CVS and a bit of Kroger

Yesterday, I realized an ECB was expiring that day, so I ran into CVS after hitting the post office. I grabbed:

2 Sure deodorants $5.38 minus 2 $1 coupons= $3.38
Bic Soleil razor $6.99 minus $4 coupon= $2.99
4 pk Soleil cartridges $6.99 minus $4 coupon= $2.99
Minus $10 ECB that was adjusted down to $9.36
Total out of pocket (tax) $.50
Got back $8 in ECBs and $1 ECB for my spring spending
I will also be sending in the Sure Buy One Get One Free rebate to get $2.69 back

The only coupon queen moment I had at Kroger this week was getting an 8 pack of DanActive for $1. It was clearanced down to $1.99 and I had a $1 coupon. Maybe next week will prove to be better for couponing.

Jake and I are going to walk to 7-11 after dinner to get our free slurpees. What a nice treat for a hot day!
