Good Deals

We went to the corn maze today... Beautiful weather, hay rides, pumpkin patches, corn as high as an elephant's eye. I may break into song!! But, that's not what I'm writing about. I will be speaking at our Siloam Bible Ladies' Retreat next month on the "Grocery Game". So, I thought I'd give a little tease of what's to come. This is a picture of one of my shopping trips to Walgreens last week. Here's a run down:
-----1 Clorox Shower Cleaning System--On sale for $19.95 (I had a coupon for $10 off. And, there is a WG rebate this month for $10 back.) = Free
-----2 Crest Toothpaste reg. 1.99 - On sale for .99 - I had 2 coupons for $1.00 off = Free
-----Bought 5 Windex/Fantastic on sale for 2.50 each (total of $12.50) - WG has a rebate of 1.00 back on each. I had coupons for 2.00 off each windex and 1.50 off each Fantastic. So, they paid me $1.50 to take it all home.
-----Reach Toothbrush reg 2.50 on sale for .99. I had a coupon for 1.00 = Free
-----Palmolive on sale for .99. I had a coupon for .75 off - Cost me .24.
-----4 bags of candy on sale for $10. WG is offering a rebate for $4. And, I had 2 coupons for $2 off 2 bags. So I ended up paying $2 for 4 bags of candy...the good kind!
-----Chemical Shampoo/Conditioner is 7.99 - WG is offering full rebate, so it's free.
-----Finally, Lyp-sol lip balm is 2.99. WG is offering a full rebate, so it's free.

Final totals.... About $71.50 worth of stuff....I will have paid .75 after all the rebates arrive! I'll take it! It's not always like this...but it's sure sweet when it is...

Have I mentioned that The Bozeman Chronicle has NO, that's right, NO coupons of Sundays! And we have no Walgreen's. I hate CVS, far too complicated to save money there. Grrrr!

Awesome! I love it! I don't know if Newton, KS has Walgreens, but they do have Dillons grocery stores and they sometimes do double/triple coupons. :) Also, we are looking forward to being back in the land of Aldi's! Yea! Good job, Trish!

I have heard rumors about these great Walgreen savings...wish I could come to the retreat and hear you tell more secrets! I like the way you shop!

I can't wait to hear your talk at the retreat! I missed the one you did at MUMS, so I'll be sure to bring my notebook to take notes at the retreat! Love you!
