My visit to Walgreen's this morning was quite a success! I got all you see in the picture for $68.36. I did two separate purchases. Walgreen's has the Huggies on sale for $9.99 and then you get a $1 register reward back. Unfortunately the nighttime Pull-ups that I bought were not included in the sale, but I didn't know until I got to the register. The manager price adjusted it for me, so I could get them for the $8.99 price (reg. $12.50)! All 3 packages! Then I found out that you only get one register reward back per transaction. So I lost out on 1 register reward. But since she price adjusted the pull-ups I didn't ask her to give me the extra $1 from the register reward. On top of the sale and rewards, I had coupons for $2 off each of the pull-ups and $1.50 off each of the diapers. (I bought 3 packages of each) Oh and the wipes were on sale for $5.99 (reg $7.99) and I had a $1 coupon off.
The formula was on sale for $12.99 (reg $14.99/2) and I generally pay $12 for that at Target and it saved me a drive. The dish detergent was on sale for 99 cents each. I had a $1 off the Dawn (so earned a penny) and $1 off 3 of the Joy. So they were 3 for $1.98. The laundry detergent was on sale for $4.99 and I had a coupon for $1 off of 2.
Plus there is a $3 coupon out (ends today) on any purchase over $10. I guess I could have broken this down into multiple purchases to keep using the $3 coupon but I didn't think of it until later. Plus I feel kind of bad - like I'm ripping them off! Anyways, I was pleased with my purchases.
I'm so glad to be doing this - I feel like I am really helping my family out. And last night, I was able to bag up some things - soap, toothpaste, lotion, shampoo, and conditioner - and give to a family in our church that could use it. It's nice to do this and be able to share the excess with others.
