Supper tonight on Walgreens

We had a Red Baron Pepperoni Pizza on Walgreens tonight! These pizzas were on special Friday for $1.99 and I bought some with some MM RRs. I heart WAGS! By the way, dessert was leftover pumpkin pie I bought at Target with coupons-$1.00(Mrs. Smiths).

Black Friday was great!

I can't believe it's Sunday. This week has flown by. Amanda and I literally shopped til we dropped on Black Friday. I'm happy to report I'm just about done with my Christmas shopping. I heart Target, Kohl's, and Penneys.





FRIDAY


Amanda and I got started at 6 AM. Our first stop was Kohl's. We had to stand in a long line to check out, but I was able to use my $10 coupon from my newspaper and I got back $10 in Kohl's cash for next week. Our next stop was Super Target. I got $20 in GC back! We took a break to re-group and eat. Then we went to Penney's. I got to use a $15 coupon!










SATURDAY







Yesterday, I spent the afternoon at Walgreens. I was determined to use all of my Infusium and candy coupons. I also loaded up on the $ .99 Walitin 10 pack. We take these everyday for seasonal allergies. I had a shopping hangover from Friday and ended up spending around $8 OOP total. I'm still very happy with my bargains and free after RR deals.





SUNDAY








I can't believe I spent less than $3 on all this and gained an extra $14 in RRs! I'm back up to $86 in RRs. I bought some coke, Life cereal, oatmeal pancake mix, Walgreens brand frozen snacks, and tuna with my overage from the great deals this week. I did 3 transactions on this trip.
I plan another trip this afternoon to my 2nd favorite Wags close to home. I'm after the great Ecotrin MM deal! Tomorrow I will back to my old routine of stopping before and after work across town close to work.

Terrific Target!

I've been sitting on a coupon that Target sent me in the mail -get a $10 gift card when you spend $100. Last weekend, when I visited Target to do some deals, I asked the manager if the $100 total was before or after coupons. She said before coupons and before tax. Then I got another Target coupon book in the mail with a $5 off $50 grocery purchase coupon on it and lots of Target coupons that I could match with Man. coupons. I decided to try to get my $10 gift card and try to get my OOP as low as possible. My pretax total was $99.96 and I got my $10 GC. I also got a $5 GC for the glade deal. I did the Scrubbing Bubbles deal, but the coupon beeped and my cashier wasn't sure how to make it work, so he just gave me $5 off!! I ended up spending $23.60 OOP!! On the bottom of my receipt it said I saved $145. WOW! I used at least 1 coupon for each item I bought, except for the celery, onion, tomatoes, and eggs!

I am a Targeteer

I will admit it- I love Target-only the sale items with coupons of course! I was able to get everything on my list but the I can't believe it's not butter sticks ( that were practically free with Target Q and Man. Q). I bought 8 cans of Del Monte veggies, 8 cans of Campbell's cream soups, 10 lb bag of potatoes for $1.99, 2 packs of Chinet 72 count paper plates (get $5 GC), 1 ritz crackers, 1 trisket, 1 pepperidge farmsw crackers, and 1 ritz crackerfuls, 2 bags of Archer farms potato chips, 4 up and up baby wipes, a bottle of crisco veg. oil, crisco spray, 1 grands can biscuits, and 3 spam singles. Before Q's $45.62-after Qs and $5 GC $18.02. My receipt said I saved $51.79- I guess because just about everything I bought was on Sale! Thanks to Attention Target Shoppers! She posts all the BEST Target steals!

Gift of Turkey!

Isn't it great to get a turkey from your employer? My part time job is giving every employee a turkey for Thanksgiving. I'm very grateful-no turkey shopping for me!

My goodies

Here are some of my Sunday goodies-no food here-already put away in the cupboard!

Sunday Shopping

I was able to get to CVS and Walgreens today! I bought my newspapers and made breakfast and dinner. I feel like I accomplished something.

Another good week at Walgreens! I was able to make some moneymakers and free buys--Lubriderm mm and I found a Razor on clearance that still printed a $3 RR. The Ricola drops are a $ .50 mm w/q in healthy savings booklet. I'm grabbing an Aussie shampoo or conditioner with each transaction-free after RR. I finally found some of those Nexxus mousse's that are free after wags coupon! I'm stocking up on canned gravy, canned fried onions, small boxes of crackers, au gratin potatoes.

Making my chicken stretch the week

Sunday, I boiled 7 leg quarters and deboned them so I could use the chicken in casseroles. Monday I made chicken enchiladas, Tuesday my darlin Dan brought home dinner, Wednesday I made a yummy Mexican Corn soup, (thanks to 4 Hats), Thursday I made Country Casserole, (Thanks to Southern Plate), and Friday we had leftovers from the soup and the casserole.

Coupon Clippers

I wanted to comment on another speedy coupon service I used this week.
COUPON CLIPPERS got my coupons to me right away-even with a postal holiday. I ordered them Sunday night even though I knew they weren't getting mailed out until Tuesday. Well, I didn't remember that Wednesday was a holiday, so I figured I wouldn't be getting my fantastic $7 Osteo Bi-flex Qs before Sat. when the sale ended at Walgreen's. What a surprise, they were in the mailbox yesterday.........................off to get the rest of my cheap Osteo Bi-flex.

More Groceries at Walgreens & Almost free Kleenex


I've continued my frugal grocery shopping at Walgreen's with money maker RR's!
Just today I was able to lay my hands of one of the November Healthy savings booklets with the $1 Walgreens q inside. Pair this with the in-ad q and now we have almost free Kleenex- about $ .09 a box!!

Ordering inserts

I ordered inserts from Coupons & Things on Sunday and got them today! Wow, that was fast! I'm impressed and will recommend this service to my friends.

Monday, November 9, 2009

I got a check in the mail!

I received my 2nd $10 check from Kellogg's Fuel for school rebate. I was afraid I wasn't going to get this rebate. My 1st check came about a month ago and I sent these rebates at the same time. These came with a $70 coupon off a Dell computer. I won't be using these, we already have all the computers we can use.

Got me some cheap chicken leg quarters!

This week La Michoacana (a small Mexican Meat Market/grocery store here in San Antonio) is having a great sale on chicken leg quarters-$ .25 a lb-sold in 10 lb bags- with a $10 additional purchase. I bought 2 bags yesterday with $10 purchase of produce, tortillas, and pan dulce-my total with the chicken was $16. Last night I put 7 quarters in the crock pot with some water and spices for a couple of hours. I deboned and separated the meat into 3 bags for 3 different meals. I put the rest of my chicken in 3 big freezer bags for later. I'm thinking I should get about 12 meals out of this deal. Not bad!

What to do with my MoneyMaker Walgreens Register Rewards



Walgreens is having some good deals on food and a BOGO deal on Osteo Bi flex this week. I decided to burn some of my MM RR's from my make-up buying marathon. This week I can get a $5 RR everytime I buy a glucose monitor with my manu. coupons for free, so I know that I can replenish some of what I burn.

(The loaf of bread is MIA!)

I was able to "buy" all of this using RR's. The total was around $13! I purchased almost everything with manu. coupons and Walgreens in-ad q's. Total before q's-$22.49. I bought $22.49 worth of groceries with $13 in RR's after q's...................with RR's that were MMs!

Yea Walgreens. Here's my list of groceries: milk, bread, eggs, garlic powder, cake frosting, english muffins, cream cheese, breakfast sausage, 2 warm delights brownie mixes, margarine, coffee and cranberry juice.


My next mission was to grab some BOGO Osteo Bi Flex. This stuff is expensive! We played poker last night and we were talking about how good this is for us old folk with aches and pains. For some reason our inserts in San Antonio did not provide us with the great coupons that some people got. I was able to get $5 internet coupons and snatched up these prizes. At regular price these guys are $19.99 each. So we are looking at about $40 here. These are BOGO and I had 2 $5 internet coupons, so I got them for $9.99 or about $5 each!! Again I used a some MM RR's from last week. I feel this is another great way to use MM RR's and buying something you need on sale with coupons at the lowest possible price.
I'm not finished with Walgreens by any means. As usual, I will do a little every day and try to finish up on Saturday afternoon.
