Smart~N~Savvy Savings

Why pay full price when you can get it for free or nearly free?

Weekly Wrap-Up (yes, I know it’s only Monday!) 8/8/10 to 8/14/10 August 9, 2010

Filed under: CVS,Target,Wags,Weekly Wrap-up — Beth @ 11:16 pm

I’m headed off to my brother’s wedding in Oregon for the next week so that’s why I’m doing my weekly wrap up on Monday!  I haven’t seen my family in over a year so I’m VERY excited to go home!

CVS:

Spent: $6.15

($11.06 w/tax)

Saved: $61.55

90% Savings!

I ended up using my card and hubby’s card this week since the Dulcolax was such a huge money maker.  I had a $5 coupon from All You and a $4 coupon that I printed.  That’s actually were the majority ($6.00!!) of my before tax spending comes from.  I used the $9.99 EB from the second one to buy magazines for my trip and hubby’s FAVORITE pens which were on a killer sale (bogo @ $3.49 and I had 2 $1/1 coupons.  $1.49 for both packs!  Yay!)  I was going to buy the magazines for my trip anyways, probably at the airport for more money, so why not get some other things as well for the same price!  The razers were a killer find.  They are on sale Buy One Get One 50% Off and I used a BOGO coupon and a $3/1 coupon and got 2 packs of 4 razors for $0.38!!!  Heck yeah!!  I even found one bonus pack that had 6 in it.  So for $0.76 (which I used EB for) I got 18 of my favorite razors!  Yippee!!  I ❤ CVS to pieces!!!!

Walgreens:

Spent: $4.32

($5.96 w/tax)

Saved: $32.10

87% Savings

I didn’t have any RRs to start out with this week so my out of pocket was a little higher than normal, but I really wanted to take advantage of the free body wash and money making deodorant and contact solution (which I give to friends since I don’t use it…) Oh, and I REALLY wanted some new nail polish, and at 99 cents it was the perfect filler!   The Secret is $2.39 and producing a $3RR!!  You don’t even have to do anything and you’re making money!  🙂  If I wasn’t leaving for vacation tomorrow night, I’m sure I’d have several more trips to Walgreens this week.

Target:

Spent: ZERO

($0.63 w/taxes)

Saved: $7.86

100% Savings!

I try to stay away from Target because mine is kind of a pain in the rear when it comes to coupons, but I have a hard time passing up free laundry detergent so everytime there is a $1/1 Tide coupon (in the P&G normally) I end up over there.  This time, I had a couple Clean and Clear coupons so I picked some travel bottles of those up too.
