It’s funny – when I get my stuff out to take pictures of it, it never seems like that much stuff. But I guess that’s the point, isn’t it? We don’t need to have 87 shopping carts full of stuff to be smart shoppers and big savers. A little bit at a time is all that it takes.
This week, once again, I got paid to take stuff out of Walgreens. This week’s trip:
This week, it's shave-tastic!
I took advantage of quite a few freebies with Register Rewards this week:
- Blistex RPM lip balm for MEN! Let’s all grab the remote and scratch ourselves! It’s on sale this week for $2, with $2 in RR back. Free! (PS – I tried this when I got home. It’s basically non-flavored lip balm. I like it.)
- Wal-Fex allergy 24-hour. On sale for $3.99 with $3.99 in RR back. Free!
- Gillette Pro Fusion Razor. On sale for $9.89 with $5.00 in RR back, and there’s a $4 off coupon in last week’s P&G brandSAVER insert. It’s like getting it for $0.89! (Plus this is the razor I got all excited about last week that I got for free with the CVS promo. I should have just waited.)
- Bayer Advanced Aspirin. On sale for $3, with $1 in RR back. There’s a coupon in this week’s paper for $2 – Free!
- Schick Hydro 5 razor system. On sale for $8.99 with $4 in RR back, and there was a $4 coupon in this week’s paper. It’s like getting it for $0.99!
- Vitamin Water 3/$3. This isn’t that great a deal. I was just thirsty (see, one is missing because I drank it). Plus I needed some filler items.
- Schick Hydro Shave Gel. On sale for $1.99 with in-ad coupon, and there’s a $0.75 coupon in this week’s paper. Got it for $1.25.
- Mitchum Deodorant. In-ad coupon for $1.99 each, and I had a $0.75 coupon from this week’s paper.
The popcorn was just another filler item. (At Walgreen’s you can’t use more than 1 coupon per item, and I was using some of my RR from last week. So I throw in some cheap items so I can use my high-value RR at the checkout.)
Total value of items: $53.30
Less coupons and in-store discounts: -$43.72
RR back: -$16.00
I basically made $6 to go shop today. Taaa-daaa!
