I did spend more than usual at both CVS and Walgreens. It was only because I need to start my ECB and RR stash! Here on out my goal is less than $1 each week per store. Since I am updating and adding advanced sections to my CVS and Walgreens tutorial I want to be able to show you how you can fully take advantage of the program. I had actually taken some time off from fully utilizing the program simply because I had enough stock to last at least a year. It’s time to start it up again!
I haven’t been real good about taking pictures of my grocery store buys. I will start that again in Feb. Hubby has been doing the shopping this month (he does use the list and coupons, but I forget to get the picture and receipt afterwords)
KMart – $1.59
4 Glade Soy Candles -$0.25 each
2 Kellogg’s Cereals – $0.05 each
Milky Way – $0.01
Candy Canes – $0.01
Tax was $0.47. I saved $7.83 using store sales, $12 using coupons/Catalinas, and $5 using a rebate. I bought the candles first (in groups of 2) and I then used the two $3 Catalina’s to purchase the cereal, candy canes, and milky way. When I got home I sent for the $5 Glade rebate!
Walgreens – $19.04
Tostitos Dip = $1.65
Doritos = $2.50
Tostitos = $1.65
Lays = $2.50
3 Kraft Mac & Cheese = $0.59 each
4 Sierra Mist (12) Packs = $1.97 each
Tax was $1.09. I saved $6 using store sales, $2.70 using Wags coupons, and $5.82 using a rebate (I had to split the rebate between this order and my CVS order since I didn’t quite have $20 in Tostitos and soft drinks on this receipt. I did get a $10 RR, which I will start rolling to get cheap deals!
Sobe Lifewater = $0.54 each
4 Sierra Mist 2 Liters = $0.23 each
3 Stacy’s Pita Chips = $0.57 each
2 Oust Air Sanitizers = $1.00 each
Lay’s BBQ Chips = $0.40
Tax was $0.49. I saved $5 in store sales, $8.99 in manufacturer coupons, $11 in CVS coupons/ECBs, and $1.88 with a rebate (split with Walgreens). I have a $10 ECB to roll this week.
