I decided to take advantage of the “Buy 10 items, save $5” this week and stock up on cheese.  This will last us a while and when we’re back home next month, I’ll buy a bunch of Tillamook Cheese and ship it back!  YUM YUM!

In my first transaction (left) the cashier forgot to scan the in ad coupon for the Daisy and Deans, so she did a return and some how I ended up making money at Walgreens this week.   Not exactly sure how the math played out on that one, but it’s not exactly typical!  lol  I had some RR that were expiring and we needed toilet paper so I used them up this week.  I’m back to $0 RR!  I haven’t quite decided if I’m going to try to build my stock up again or just wait until we get back from vacation and take a break from Walgreens for a couple weeks… I’ll let you know what I decide!



Spent: $1.35

($2.74 w/tax)

Saved: 25.45

95% Savings!

Learned a good CVS lesson this week!  When you buy something that is Buy One, Get One the price of the second comes off at the VERY end.  I bought 4 of the Arizona teas because I was just under $2 short of $20 ( I had a $4 off $20 coupon) which put my oop at $1.35.  If I had know that the 2nd tea counted towards my initial $20 and only bought 2 teas, I could have had an oop of $0.36!  Oh well, I love tea so it’s all good!
