Couponing at Rite Aid and Walgreens...

Quote for the Day:
"A penny saved is a penny earned."   --  Benjamin Franklin

No quilts to share today, but did want to share with you my couponing shopping trips to Walgreens and Rite Aid today.  They were good, but not phenomenal.  

I planned on getting more at Rite Aid then I did, but unfortunately they were out of stock of the item and wouldn't issue a rain check since it isn't a "normal stock item" for them.  The manager also told me that they never even received any of that item in for the sale.  At the end of my receipt was another offer for $3 off a $15 purchase for answering a survey, so you had better believe that Rite Aid will be getting an earful from me on this upcoming survey!  :(((

So this is what I did pick up at Rite Aid...

After coupons and Up Rewards, I paid 96 cents out of pocket and got $2.76 back in Up Rewards and the $3 offer for taking the survey...which I always's the easiest $3 you can make!  LOL

So basically, I got free items at Rite Aid...AND they paid me $4.80 to remove them from their store!  :)

My shopping at Walgreens netted me this...

My out-of-pocket was $18.03 after coupons and Register Rewards.  However, I received $3 back in Register Rewards AND will submit to Nexcare for $8.97 in rebate on the bandages....causing my actual cost to go down to $6.06.  :)  

I save us so much money on toiletries and household items by shopping this way, it has really helped our budget!  

Even though we are frugal grocery shoppers, I'm still working on figuring out how best to carry my coupons to the grocery store so that I can save more money on food than we do now.  That is my next goal!  :)

I have finished the book Shattered Silence: The Untold Story of a Serial Killer's Daughter, by Melissa G. Moore, that I had posted about before.  I have to say that the subject matter is very interesting, but I didn't like the way it was written at all.  Even though she was helped by a professional writer, it seemed like it was written by a complete amateur.  That's just my 2 cents worth...I won't even charge you for that review!  ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Have a great day!
