My Shopping Week Jan 18th – Jan 24th

I had quite a week this week! I did spend a decent OOP at CVS. I was getting tired of being unable to do the deals because I didn’t have ECB’s. I could have done much better, but I had my son and husband with me so I needed to be fast! It will give me the start of my ECB stash for the year though (my OOP should be under $1 each week from here on out).

Click the store name if you want to see the coupon matchups for the week!

I bought $197.81 in food and $40.99 in household items for $81.32 for a 66% savings!

I have $37.38 left in my January budget

This may be a stupid question, but I didn’t see it in your all about walgreens section – how do you find out about RR? When I was at Walgreens, I couldn’t find any informaiton about it and feared of buying 8 skippy pbs with no rewards…

TIA

That’s a good question 🙂 I find that my walgreens doesn’t post the deals on the shelves at least one out of every five times…

I check the ad before I go so I know what I am going for, then if it isn’t marked on the shelf then I just grab an ad and turn it to the page the sale is on. My reason for doing that is just so if it does ring up wrong or if the rewards don’t print then I have the ad to show them what it should be right there.

Honestly, I’ve never needed it 🙂 Even though they don’t mark it, it has always rang up right. I still do it as a precaution though.
