Weekend of Shopping

Walgreens Haul Saturday 7/26

Total Walgreens Diaper packs: 17 (the ones I picked up in the evening not pictured)
Boxes of Maalox Tablets: 12
Bottles of Benefiber: 9
Bottles of Loreal Vive: 14
One pack of printer paper and one big pack of Pampers Cruisers.
Total Out of pocket: $18.97 and got back $15 back in Register Rewards

Can you believe that the big pack of Cruisers was 20 cents after the overage and one $2 manufacturer coupon? It was originally on clearance for $15.20.

Friday the day before I went to CVS and got this:

Not pictured: four 12 packs of Pepsi products and nineteen more packs of gum. Total out of pocket: $3.00. Used up 15 ECBs and got back 11.49. The packs of diapers were on clearance for $2.75. After coupon I paid 75 cents each! I used ECBs of course!

That same Friday evening I visited my local Walgreens for some double dipping deals and got:

Total out of pocket: $3.61 I used overage and $10 in register rewards to pay for all of it.

I was able to double dip on the diapers by using the ESR coupon in the July and August catalog but I decided that I was just going to do one transaction at each store. I decided to get as many packs of diapers as I could for the lowest out of pocket the overage from the other items provided. So at one store I bought five packs and at two other stores I bought six packs. One store didn’t have any diaper packs left, so I picked up the big pack of Pampers Cruisers.

Total out of pocket for the weekend: $25.58 and still have $15 in register rewards to use and will get back $6.60 on a gift card from Walgreens for the Pantene and markers. My net spending was $3.98. To be fair I will also add to this $3.89 for a gallon of gas to hit the four Walgreens I visited today. Just by using coupons (sale discounts and BOGO sales not included) I saved $295.13.

I will be taking to the Women’s shelter some of the shampoo, the Maalox, 6 packs of diapers and the feminine products.

    That’s incredible the way you can get so much for next-to-nothing!

    And it only takes a little bit of work. I also have fun doing it. I told my husband this is the best hobby I could have picked up!

    You are amazing! And so generous as well. Great job!

    Hi Elizabeth, you did pretty well too at HT. I wished my store tripled coupons.

    Great job, I only scored 6 packs in total from the Walgreens deal before an asst. manager swooped in and started freaking out throwing my paid for and bagged diapers behind the counter and telling me she’d be back in a minute. Apparently there is a company email put out telling them to watch out for this deal. I think people are scamming and getting the register rewards and then returning the diapers.
    Whatever, I told her I have 3 kids and that i need those diapers…It was a bit disheartening. But I still got 180 diapers for 10 bucks!

    I think it is fabulous that you donate extra items to the women’s shelter. Often on blogs I see huge stock piles of items and think “Are they ever going to use all of that?” It’s nice to see that you spread the wealth your great deals in such a positive way!
