Saturday 9: When We Was Fab
Haiti-Bound... or Not

Sunday Steals and Deals

I had to go to three different Walgreens yesterday to get my deals - but I got 'em! I'm going to break them up by transaction below, along with my CVS and Rite-Aid deals:


I had a $5 off $5 L'Oréal coupon, so these two nailpolishes were almost free! They're normally something like $7-8 each, but one was on clearance for $1.29 and the other was on clearance for $3.79. My OOP (out of pocket) was only 33¢ after tax! (Wags)


I got the TheraFlu and Lipton Green Tea for a total of $3.05 OOP. Not sure what the full value is of both is right now, but the tea was on sale for $2.99 and the TF was on sale for $3.99. I had $4 in coupons for the TF, making it free (one manufacturer's coupon and one Walgreen's coupon, which you can stack), and I also received a $4 RR (Register Rewards coupon) for later use, essentially making this deal a money-maker!  (Wags)

Rite Aid

Oops, I forgot to take a picture of this shopping trip. I don't normally shop the Rite Aid deals because you have to wait for a mail-in rebate on many of them, but I found a few really good deals that don't require the rebate. After coupons and sales, I got the following for just $5.75 OOP which was basically just the Tide and tax:

  • 32-load Tide Original 2X
  • Cherry-flavor Halls, 30-ct
  • Bayer "baby" aspirin, 36-count
  • (2) 3-pack rolls of Tums


I paid $6.15 OOP for 20 packs of Capri-Sun, which isn't a terribly great deal by itself, but I did receive $2 RR back for a future purchase. That makes it a better deal, and we can always use more juices for the kids' school lunches! (Wags)


Normally, these olives would be $4 + tax, but I got them for $1.03 OOP after coupons, making them pretty cheap. I used to LOVE olives when I was a kid; they'll make a great low-cal snack! (Wags)


CVS still has the six-packs of Soy Joy bars on special. Normally, these would be $22.50 + tax, but I got them ALL for 45¢ OOP after rolling my $6 ECBs (Extra Care Bucks) three times. If you have a CVS near you, definitely do this deal, because they're actually pretty good once you get used to the texture. Just stay away from the Mango-Coconut ones! ;) (CVS)


Normally, these M&Ms would be $7.98 + tax, but I got them for $4.12 OOP, plus I received $2 ECBs for my next transaction. My family LOVES peanut M&Ms, and they're all green, the best color! (CVS)

  Normally, these five bottles of Dawn would have been $9.95 + tax, but I got them ALL for just 79¢ OOP after sales, coupons and ECBs. Great deal!  (CVS)


For $5.09 OOP, after sales, coupons and RRs, I got these 2 15-oz boxes of Raisin Bran, bag of Rice Snacks, and FOUR 12-packs of CFD Coke! The Coke alone would normally cost more than $22 at full price! (Wags)


This may not seem like my best "steal," because I paid $52.31 OOP, but I saved more than $100 after sales, coupons and RRs, and all of this will be great added to my stockpile. For that amount (at Walgreens), I bought:

  • 9.5-oz Triscuits
  • 10-oz Wheat Thins
  • (2) 40-ct cans of Wet Ones (GREAT for road trips with the kids)
  • (2) bottles of Arm & Hammer Scrub-Free Cleanser
  • Lipton Green Tea, 40 bags
  • (2) 25.4-oz bottles of Scope mouthwash
  • 6-oz can of Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Almonds (Soooo good)
  • 6-oz can of Blue Diamond BOLD Lime & Chili Almonds (Blech, all Rob)
  • (4) Boxes of Kraft Mac & Cheese
  • (6) cans of Campbell's Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup
  • (2) 12-oz cans of Planter's Honey Roasted Peanuts (Yum, but makes me dump!)
  • (2) 5-oz bottles of Lindsay Green Olives
  • (2) 4.25-oz Hershey's with Almonds bars
  • Garnier Fructis Shampoo
  • Garnier Fructis Conditioner
  • (2) boxes of Revlon ColorSilk haircolor (only 99¢ each for these!)
  • TheraFlu Sugar-Free Severe Cough & Cold
  • (2) 16.25-oz bottles of Curel Anti-Itch Lotion
  • John Frieda Shampoo
  • John Frieda Conditioner
  • (2) Lady Mitchum deodorants (I've always been brand-loyal to Secret, but I'm going to be less brand-loyal now that I'm having to be more frugal and shop the best deals)
  • 32-oz  Welch's grape jelly (also for the kids' lunches, since they take PB&J every day)

Not a bad week for deals!
