I spent $8.74 for the items pictured above at Rite Aid, but I will be getting back $4.69 in Single Check Rebates. The colorable flip flops were 75% off, so only $2.50, and I know they'll make a great gift! The TP was on sale for $5.99, I had (2) $1 manf. coupons and I paired that with a $5/2 coupon from Rite Aid Video Values. The toothpaste was free after SCR, plus I used a $.75 manf. coupon, so a $.75 moneymaker. The lightbulbs were $1 each after SCR, but I had (2) $1 coupons, making them free also. I also used a $4/$20 Rite Aid coupon.
On Monday night, I made the great Giant Eagle run. I spent a total of $42.79, but I saved $144.18, for a total savings of 77%!!! I posted my receipt from that trip here. Wish you coulda been there, because it was so much fun. I got 61 items free. They are pictured below. I got 20 cans of College Inn broth, 13 Zone Perfect bars, 8 Purina dog treat packages, and 20 Birdseye Steamfresh veggies FREE!
The items below cost me $.50 or less...
The following items were $.51 to $1 each...
These were the expensive items in my shopping cart. The most money I spent on one single purchase was the Crisco oil, which was $2 a piece.
I made one last stop this week. Ben let me stop in at CVS today, because my diaper stash is running dangerously low, and I had a couple of coupons that expired today at CVS for diapers. I paid $3.78 for all of the items below. I also used $5 in Extra Care Bucks. The really cool thing about this transaction was that, apparently CVS had already added their next week's sales into their scanner because the diapers rang up for $9.50, while they were supposed to be $11.99. I only paid $4.50 for those diapers, and I am $9.50 on my way to a $5 ECB for a $20 Huggies Diapers purchase!
I scanned my CVS card at a entrance scanner at another CVS (mine doesn't have one), and I got a $2 CVS coupon on Huggies diapers, and another $2 CVS coupon on Huggies wipes! I stacked those store coupons with a $3 Huggies Diaper manf. coupon and a $.50 Huggies Wipes Manf. coupon. I also used (2) $1.25/3 Ragu sauce, which were on sale 3/$5 to score the pasta for $1.25 each, but I also got a $3 ECB. I used a $5 off $20 CVS purchase coupon, and $5 in ECBs.
My grand total spending this week was $51.72!!! Woo-hoo, only $1.72 over my budget this week!
