My deals of the week.

I have gotten so many great deals this week at CVS and Walgreens that I thought I would share them with you.  Its so nice to stock up on often used items at a very low cost or even free.  Its also a blessing to be able to share them with family members.

Walgreens:

Bought 1 Purex and got 2 free deal.  Used 3 $1.00 off coupons.  Final cost $2.29 for all three.

Bought 2 packages of Butterball Turkey Bacon for $1.29 each.  Used 2 $1.00 off coupons.  Final Cost 58 cents for both.  These are smaller size packages than you would get at the grocery store, but still a great deal!  We love BLTs made using turkey bacon.  Fresh tomatoes this time of year will make this a wonderful meal.


CVS:

2  Revlon Nail Polish
1 Almay Eye Shadow
3 Purex Laundry Detergent (buy 1, get 2 free)
3 Colgate Total Toothpastes
1 (4) pk travel size Total Toothpaste.

Coupons used:

$5.00 off $30.00 order (cvs email)
$2.00 off 2 Colgate
.75 off 1 Colgate
$3.00 off Revlon product (cvs Beauty Club email)
3 $1.00 off Purex
Used $19.00 Extra Bucks from last week.

Final Cost $2.59  for everything and got $15.00 Extra Bucks for next week.

Next week is looking like a spectacular week for lots of free stuff.  I have $15.00 extra bucks and some great high dollar coupons for things that are on sale and that generate Extra Bucks.  I'll be buying diapers for the grand babies, more toothpaste, mouth rinse, razors, shampoo and more.  I hope to share these deals with you.

Just remember to scan your card at the CVS kiosk machine.   I scan mine at least twice each visit.  Some of them don't seem that great at the time, but the following week or the next there will often be a sale that you can use them toward.

I am being careful in my use of the Extra Bucks I have on hand so that they generate more each week.  I AM NOT buying something just because its a great deal.  Only buy it if you would actually use it or a family member would.

I recently read about a girl who asked her elderly grandparents for a list of items they would use from a drugstore.  Then when she can get these items free or at a good deal, she gets them and then gives them to her grandparents. Think "Polident, Fiber One, etc."  I love that idea!  We do this with the diaper deals, since we have one 5 month old grandson and a new grandson coming in the next few weeks.  The moms love it when we hand them a package of diapers.  Bought at regular price this saves them about $10.00 a package on their grocery bill.  Its like money in the bank for them and we get to experience the joy of doing something nice for our grandchildren and their parents.  I plan to put my stash of grocery store items in a box and when the children visit, they can go "shopping" in the box if they wish.

At the rate we are spending money at the doctor, dentist and eye doctor, we need to save everywhere we can!

good job! I need to get back into the coupon game; esp. CVS, as I have one in my town and ride by it several times a week.
