What Did You Buy This Week?

There were so many great deals this past week that I was so excited to get back in the “shopping grind.”  I had had to take a break for the past three weeks because we had family visiting and then I was traveling or sick, so I didn’t have a chance to take advantage of any deals.

I like to shop on the last day of the sale.  It is probably a bad idea as I am more than likely to find empty shelves, but sometimes it works well for me too as some stores may be restocking shelves for the following week.  Here is what I got at Walgreens for better than FREE:

In two Transactions I got: 4 bottles of Dove shampoo and four containers of dove treatment.  I was desperate (almost) for the shampoo.  I find that as my sons get older I am going through it faster.  I did this deal here and it worked even better for me because the lady at the beauty counter at my local Walgreens had coupons for $0.50/1 dove hair care.  So that knocked an additional $1 off my order.

Then I also bought the Infant Advil for my daughter but then I had a sad realization.  My daughter will only be considered an infant for five more weeks.  After she turns two, then she can start taking the children’s Advil.  How fast they grow!

Then I headed to Walmart to price match the Campbell’s soup because Walgreens was all out and I knew they would not have enough on shelf anyway.  So I got ten cans of the soup plus a “majillion”, in the words of my son, packets of Trident gum.  According to my son they should last us for about 1,000 years and I sure hope so, because I do not want to buy that for a long while.

And just so you don’t think we will be eating canned soup and gum for the rest of the week or whatever, I also dropped another $50 on organic milk, fruit, bread, orange juice.  No veggies because we are signed off with a CSA and that is turning out to be an interesting experiment this summer.

So, what deals did YOU get this week?

  • My favorite thing I got this week was a pair of maternity capri jeans for $1.98 at Target and 2″ binders for $2 when I thought I would have to pay $8 each for them.

    I also managed to save 89% at Giant Eagle and got bread, yogurt, pudding, popcorn & more

    My Walgreen wouldn’t take the two 4.49 off with my BOGO coupons. I did scan the treatment first, but they took the first 4.49 than took the last 1.53 … >”< …….. and some did two 3.75 for the treatment……. I don't know, even though, still pretty good deal, just kind of discouraged.

      Unfortunately, I didn’t check my Walgreens add and went in to do this deal today, only to find out that it was last week’s deal and so I didn’t get any RR! 🙁 Lesson learned, you can’t always use CCWM or other blogs to do your homework for you! I will be more responsible next time!

    Yes Mercedes, tell us the about the deal you got on the gum.
    Your old Plymouth friend wants to know!

    • Hi Lisa!!

      How are you doing? The Trident Gum was on sale for 79 cents each and there were $2/3 coupons available:

      trident Gum 3×0.79 = 2.37
      Used $2/3 coupon
      Paid $0.37 for three packs

      Which totally beats the $1.49 my husband paid for one because we were totally out! I know there will be another sale, so I will make sure to point it out before the coupon expires.


  • lisa

    just wondering about the trident coupon/deal?

  • Marianne

    I got some free Crest and Scope mouthwash at Walgreens, along with some free Pert shampoo/conditioner.

  • Pam

    Ok, I’m cheating–my deal came week before last–I got 2 graphic t-shirts at Target for $0.48 each. They will be great for my teenaged grandsons to wear to school.

  • I wish there was a Walgreens nearby!

    On the infant advil. Compare the drug concentration to the children’s version. I know for tylenol, they no longer make different concentrations for infants and children….it’s all the same thing now bc it kept getting confused and misused, so you will more than likely be in luck! Being married to a pharmacist gives you a wealth of information 🙂
