A Trip To Both Walgreens And CVS

My daughter started a summer camp at the dance studio today, so I ran some errands while she was in class. I had forgotten how easy errands are with only one kiddo in tow. Somehow, when you are talking about kids, 1 + 1 = 3. Or, so it seems when you're in a drug store trying to score some deals with a pile of coupons. :)

First stop, CVS:

2 Raisin Brans $3.76
2 Planter's Peanuts (B1G1 FREE) $3.99
Johnson's Lotion $3
Crest Pro-Health $2.99


(2) Raisin Bran newspaper coupons
$1.00 Planters printable coupon (from my coupon bar last month, wish I had more!!)
$1.00 Johnson's newspaper coupon
$6.00 in ECB

Total OOP $3.74 and I got back $2.00 in Extra Care Bucks for the Crest. I saved $21.40. No luck on the razor deal, but I'll check again later in the week.

Next stop, Walgreens:

Sun Dish Detergent $1.99
2 Right Guard Deodorants $5.98
St. Ives Body Wash $2.99


(2) $1.00 off Right Guard newspaper coupons
$.99 Wags/Right Guard coupon (saved $4.00)
$1.00 off St. Ives newspaper coupon

I spent the last $2.73 of my Walgreens gift card (sniff, sniff) and paid $.85 cash OOP. I got back $3.00 in Register Rewards for the St. Ives, so I made a "profit" of $2.15, and saved $8.91. Yippee!!
