Walgreens for Week of 8/7/11

Hola, readers! I did make that plural because I think I have more than one reader now. Can I just start by saying that I will never complain of cold weather or rain again. I would run errands for months in the rain and cold with my three kids!!! This weather is making me CRAZY!!! Can I just say I tell my husband thank you every single day for working outside a lot for our family. I really mean that. I need to dedicate a post to that sweetie heart! He would die if he knew I just referred to him as that....

Any's what I got yesterday & today at Walgreen's. I found a really good Walgreen's yesterday near our church that hadn't sold out of everything in 32 minutes. Plus, Justin was with me to help with two thirds of the children so that was AWESOME!!! He took Chase and baby girl in a cart and baby boy and I chilled. I think he thought he was an only child for 7 minutes. I'm sure it was the highlight of his week.

The dry erase markers were on sale for $.99 this week. I used two $2.00 off 2 coupon from . Wow, that's a lot of 2's. I threw in two fillers of the $.19 pencils so the register wouldn't beep at me. That total was $.36 OOP.

Everything above sums up my Sunday trip.

I ran into another Walgreens today for Huggies wipes. These are my favorite brand and we use them a lot. They were on sale this week for $5.99 and there was also an in ad coupon (aug coupon book) for $2.00 off. I also snagged a Walgreen's Infant Care Coupon Book that had another $2.00 off coupon. Finally, I used two $.50 off Huggies wipe coupon from 7/17/11 SS insert. My total for 4 packages of 216 ct wipes was 7.12. I used my $5.00 in RR from Sunday to bring it down to $2.12.

When I was walking out today I realized that I had a coupon for a free Herbal Essence product and a free Aussie product in my car. I ran out and got those and bought a bottle of each for free. They were on sale for $3.00 this week and you earned $1.00 in RR from each. Ergo, I made $2.00 in RR. HOLLA!!! p.s. i got the free product coupons from their respective FB pages and they are no longer available. Sorry.

My total savings for the two days was $79.33. I spent $7.38 OOP and I have two dollars in RR left. Had I been thinking, I would have done the herbal essence and aussie deal before the wipes and applied it to that. Let's just blame it on the heat.


  1. I am glad you are back to the blogging world! I will be a reader!!

  2. Wow - I'm seriously impressed! And yes, the heat is driving me up the wall too. Can't WAIT until fall!
