Frugal Shopping Trip and Updates!

I headed out yesterday to do some shopping and all and all was a good trip.  I would have really liked to have split up my Walgreen's transactions a little better to prevent the fact that I now have $22 in RR!  However, my husband was waiting on me to eat a little Mexican for lunch and I SURE couldn't pass that up, so I did my shopping as quickly as I could and hurried over to have a taco :)

Here's a look at Rite Aid....

Retail cost of these items is $25.30, I paid $4.57 and got back $11 in +up rewards making the final cost FREE + $6.43!!  Don't forget the awesome money making deal on Revlon Beauty Tools that I posted about here!

Next up, Walgreen's.....

Retail cost of this trip is $56.51, I paid $32.51 and I got back $22 in RR making the final cost $10.51.  Again, I would have liked to have used some of the RR to pay for other items in different transactions, BUT Lunch with my husband (and Mexican at that) was much more important!

Don't forget about the Walgreen's Deals I posted about here and how to get the money maker on the Noxzema Razors.  Also, to add to the deals, the Cottonelle Toilet paper is on sale for $5 for a 12 pack.  There is an unadvertised RR deal going on when you buy 2 packs of Cottonelle you will get $3 RR or buy 3 packs and get $4 RR. Here's how to work a great deal for that:

Purchase 3 packs of Cottonelle Toilet Paper = $15.00
Use:  (3) .50/1 coupons from here or here
Plus use the $1/1 from the May Walgreen's Coupon Book (will deduct $3)
Pay:  $10.50
Get Back:  $4 RR
Final Cost:  $6.50 for all 3 or $2.17 each!!
Thanks Hip2Save  and Wild for Wags for the coupon links and deal idea!

Also, be on the look for the $2/1 coupons inside the Noxzema Razors.  After you purchase these, you can use the coupon inside to score another pack for FREE + $1.00

Noxzema Razors - $3.99 get a $3 RR
Use:  $2/1 from 5/1 or inside package (after you purchase)
Pay:  $1.99
Get Back:  $3
Final Cost:  FREE + $1!

So, Final Costs for the day...
Retail Cost:  $81.81
I paid: $37.08
I got back in rewards: $33.00
FINAL COST:  $4.08

Not too shabby!  How did you do this week?  Leave a comment, I'd love to hear about your money saving shopping trips!

  2. In doing shopping we should consider not just the price but also the quality of the product.
