I picked up a paper yesterday while doing my bi-monthly shopping trip and was astounded by how many 1) inserts there are this week and 2) how many great match-ups that Walgreens has. I sat down after the baby was in bed and planned my shopping trip for maximum savings.
And for those of you who aren’t familiar with “Register Rewards” from Walgreens, they are coupons that print out at the register for money off your next purchase.
Here is how I got 10 items for under $10:
4 pk. BIC Soleil Razors – $5.99 less $3 off coupon (this week’s paper) = $2.99
4 pk. Noxzema Razors – $3.99 less $2 off coupon (this week’s paper) = $1.99
Received $2 in Register Rewards for BIC Razors
Received $3 in Register Rewards for Noxzema Razors
Paid $5.36 out-of-pocket with tax
Right Guard Total Defense 5 Deodorant x 2 – $2.99 each less Buy 1, Get 1 Free coupon (this week’s paper) = $2.99
Colgate 360 Toothbrushes x 2 – $2.50 each less 2 $1 off coupons (All You April & May editions) = $3.00
3M Transparent Scotch Tape – $1.49 less in-ad $1.10 off coupon = $0.39
Received $2 in Register Rewards for Right Guard
Received $1 in Register Rewards for Colgate Toothbrushes
USED $5 in Register Rewards from Transaction 1
Paid $1.45 out-of-pocket with tax
3M Transparent Scotch Tape x 2 – $2.98 less in-ad $2.20 off coupon = $0.78
Walgreens Diapers Jumbo Pack – $5.99 less Walgreens Infant Care $2 off coupon = $3.99
USED $3 in Register Rewards from Transaction 2
Paid $1.90 out-of-pocket with tax
Total Paid Out of Pocket with tax: $8.71
According to my receipts, I saved a total of $35.27. That includes advertised sale prices, in-ad coupons, and manufacturers’ coupons.
I added to my stockpile of personal and baby goods and was even able to replace a few things I donated to the Girls Scouts April Showers drive a few weeks ago.
I’d love to hear how you saved money this week!
