Hello! Its been a hectic month.
As always, if you want the best Rite Aid deals, check out Erin’s blog (her button is on the side!)
I had about 7 different Rite Aid transactions this week. Most of the time I went into tax money and I always make it a priority to full foot the tax bill. So chocolate helped me there. 😀
Rite Aid Total OOP spent- 11.25 including tax (which was approx $2 a transaction. Rounded to the nearest dollar)
Will recieve $28 in rebates for a +$16.25! Just for this week.
At Walgreens I went all out to stockpile my RR. We are VERY limited on the items we have. Each week I go in for the neutrogena deal but as soon as they come in someone goes down and gets them all. So this is kind of a reminder to please make sure you save enough for someone else to get the deal. The poor cashier had people wanting the deal but she couldnt do anything about it.
I went in on Saturday to stock up on the Renu RR deal. They had just gotten a batch and had a LOT in. Woot. So I didnt feel to bad about buying 3 more. (I had already gotten one on Monday)
Walgreens OOP – $8.00 (rounded included tax) Oh and I sent my MIL home with some of the Herbal Essence shampoo I bought.
I have $19.00 in RR for next week. Tax averaged $1-$1.50 a transaction. I had about 4 transactions. The little art items were my filler (and the eggs) they were on sale for about .30 each. 😀
Our local Stater Bros has a clearance cart and they had Gillette Fusion razors on sale for $3.50 I had ONE more $4/1 coupon left. The Nut-ri-tion nuts were on sale for $1.50 used $1/2 coupon. I am not kidding. They had a cart FULL of this stuff. I went in, realized I didnt bring my coupon binder. Went home and came back maybe in 20minutes and barely found the two and the razor. Spent $2.35. No overage allowed on the razor. And she didnt want me to use a coupon on it because it was discounted. Sigh. I really dislike using coupons at Staters.
This was a fun trip. I saw that a lot of my FREE coupons were expiring on 6/30 so I just decided to use all the ones I have been saving.
Before coupons at Albertsons this came too $41.13 (GASP! Can you believe that?)
After all my free coupons (sometimes the “exceed” amount was lower than the actual price and I had to make up the difference) my total OOP was- $1.89
3 items we wont be able to eat. The Pizza, The Mac and Cheese and teh Koolaid (personal preference, I dont need to add dental bills to my budget) I have kept the crackers for my own personal use for a snack for teh car trips when I do shopping. I am actually going to save the Mac and Cheese for a mother that just had a baby. I think it’ll be a nice lunch that she can just reheat and that her children will actually like. LOL. Pizza I think I will give to my hardworking sister for a quick lunch for work. But seriously, look at all that yummy free food. I wish I could do this weekly! LOL.
So there you have it.
I’ll be starting up my $100 monthly challenge again. I bought papers today and some salad. Total for 4 papers and 2 bags of salad came too $9.48
Rebates earned- $0
RR left- $19
