Double Dip Days at Walgreens

Wow, Im starting to feel like a Wags girl... I used to be CVS all the way. I feel like I am cheating. LOL

What is double dipping? For two days each month Walgreen's Easy Saver books overlap. You can use a coupon from one book with a rebate from the other, or try to use two coupons on the same item from each book... this is a little tricky and sometimes they won't let you.

Anyway, got some great deals today and last night when Amanda and I went out cruising the stores. Some is from lastnight (me rolling $5 Reach RR's for for $10 Robitussin ones) and then the rest is from today.

Back Home

Well we finally have power! That is fantastic news. We did, however, loose all of the food in our refrigerator despite our desperate attempts to keep them cool :( What a waste of money!! I had several pounds of ground beef, chicken, steaks, a huge thing of beef brisket not to mention frozen veggies, condiments, lunch meat, fresh fruit and veggies etc. Very sad day here!

I did do some shopping now that we are home. I had two trips that look like this.

Because of the storm, I was also able to do two more sets of Robitussin even though the deal is over.

Total oop 5.94 got $20 in RR

My second trip was to Walmart. Also pictured is part of a trade I did.

Life after Ike

Hurricane Ike has left me and my family without power. We are closing on day 3. It makes things very difficult with a new baby and a 3 year old. We are staying with family now so can post, but that is where we have been!

However, I did get to do some shopping today and I was very excited as stores near us are still closed!

No pictures, I don't have any way to take them. But here is a run down.

Deals and Steals


I am still learning how to shop at Walgreens, I don't do it as often as CVS but the deals are making me learn fast!!

Today I purchased 12 bottles of Robitussin and 2 bottles of visine. I would have bought more visine since it was a .50 money maker, but I only had 2 coupons. They also gave me a free pack of cards! :)


4 Transactions

3 bottles Robitussin @ 3.99 ea
- 3 $3 off qs
Total $2.97
Recieve: $10 in RR (register rewards....money off of your next purchase)

Total OOP: 10.86
RRs to use on next purchases $40
29.14 profit :)

I will count my RRs when I use them. Walgreens has a rebate program where certain items qualify for a mail in rebate. Now I can use this money to pay upfront, and make more money in the long run. They have items with a full rebate that you can use coupons on to make money. Also, if you chose to have your rebate on a gift card other than a check, you recieve a 10% bonus!


I went to walmart to look for more of the All You magazine from August that had such great qs in it, but they were gone :( But I still did a few great deals!!


8 Clean and Clear Trail Face Wash @.97 use $1q, make .03

First Things First

I wanted to start a blog to start tracking my savings. I want to know about what budget I can realistically set for myself, both for food/hba products and for clothing ect. While I am going to list some deals that I got before this month, my tracking is going to start as of September 1st, 2008.

So far this month, I have made 3 shopping trips. One each at CVS, Kroger, and Target.

Last week, Target had a special, purchase 4 Kellogs products, receive a $5 gift card. My transaction was as follows.

12 boxes of Poptarts
-6 $1/2 coupons (q)
-12 .50 off target qs
Total $15 receive $15 gift card.

I did this transaction twice totaling 24 boxes, the second time using the $15 in gift cards. I could have done less out of pocket to start, but I want to use a $10 mail in rebate. Therefore, in the end, I spent $5 out of pocket and received $15 in gift cards, making this a $10 profit.


Why so many poptarts? First of all, if you are being paid to take stuff out of the store, why wouldn’t you take it? Secondly, my husband and daughter love poptarts J There is no way we will eat all of these before they expire, so we have shared some with neighbors and plan to use some as trades for other products and coupons.

CVS this week was very eventful! CVS has an extra care bucks program (ECB). Certain items every week and month have ECBs offered on them. I have two cards, one each for Dave and I. Here was my transaction this week.
