Walgreens Deals 2/11

There are some great ladies on a board I frequent that have been bragging about the great deals they get at Walgreens and other drug stores. I've been wanting to give it a try myself for some time and decided to jump in. This is my 3rd week to shop the deals and I think I'm getting the hang of it. Everything I buy isn't necessarily items I would normally buy but I get some of them free or more than free and I can use the overage to buy things I do want {plus we get some "treats"}.

First Transaction:

I have Madisyn with me so sometimes I have her check out separately so I can get more of the things I really want. The above was what I bought. 2 Colgate toothpastes, 2 tubes of Ritz Crackers, Cranberry juice, Lysol automatic soap dispenser, Gummy bears {shopping with the 3 middle boys leads to impulse buys ;-)}, 2 Halls cough drops {all they had}, Hand sanitizer, and 2 Hershey's drops {which are really good LOL} .

Total out of pocket ~ $3.98 . Total saved ~ $45.36!

Second Transaction

This was Madisyn's. I try to make her transaction simpler with less coupons. She purchased 2 Hershey's drops, 2 bags Planter's trail mix, Hand Sanitizer, Cranberry Juice, and 3 Halls Cough Drops.

Total out of pocket ~ $4.12. Total saved ~ $28.95.

It takes quite a bit of planning to figure out what to buy as there are several "rules". They were out of a few of the things I wanted so I had to recalculate in the store and that is getting easier. Between the two transactions I earned $23 in Register rewards which are like additional coupons that come off my total after store and manufacturer coupons.

In past weeks I have purchased shampoo, razors, Arnica, Nyquil, Kleenex, etc. Once I build my coupon stash up a little more, I should be able to get even better deals.
