My Walgreens Shopping Trip Today! (92% Savings)

This morning on our way to church the girls and I stopped off for our Walgreens trip!  Unfortunately, it ended up being a confusing trip as the salad dressing didn't ring up correctly.  I went ahead and purchased it because there was someone in line behind me, then I went ahead and returned it....

However, once I got home from church, I realized that it actually was on sale and it's in the online ad in their bonus buys.  Once I figured that out, I headed back out for a second trip to get my FREE dressing after all!  So, my trips are split up into two different pictures.  But here they are:

This morning before church we purchased: 




(4) Kraft Mayo or Miracle Whip, 2/$6--used $1/1 HERE and $1/2 from September Coupon Booklet = $1.50 each

(1) Renew Life Heartburn Out, $10--Receive $10 RR = FREE

(4) Lay's Chips, $4.29 BOGO--used $3/1 and $1/1 previously available = $.14 each

(6) Velveeta Shells & Cheese, 2/$4--used $1/1 HERE and $1/2 from September Coupon Booklet = $.50 each

(2) Newspapers, $1.25 each

*Note I did the above in three transactions.  As mentioned above I had trouble with the first transaction and the salad dressing not ringing up correctly.  I ended up returning it and getting my money back.

Total amount BEFORE coupons and RR :: $85.94

Total amount AFTER coupons and RR ::  I paid $12.27 out of pocket today, but received $15 in RR to use next time....it's like I made $2.73 on the deal!


Then, once I realized that the dressing really is on sale I headed back in for more:


(1) Package Walgreens Diapers, $5.99

(2) Kraft Mayo, 2/$6--used $1/1 HERE and $1/2 from September Coupon Booklet = $1.50 each

(8) Kraft Salad Dressing, 2/$4--used $1/2 HERE and $1/2 from September Coupon Booklet = $1.00 each--(By the way, I cook the Wednesday night meals at our church and we really will use all of this dressing and mayo, it's not just for my family)!

I used my $15 RR from this morning to pay:

Total amount BEFORE coupons and RR :: $39.14

Total amount AFTER coupons and RR :: $4.56



So, since I'm a math nerd, I just had to compile all the numbers together to see the results.  Here they are:

Totals on all transactions together BEFORE coupons and RR :: $125.08

Total on all transactions together AFTER coupons and RR :: $10.99 (plus $5.84 tax) which came to a total of $16.83!  Plus, I still have $10 RR for next week! 

That's a savings of 92%!!

So, basically (after taking the future $10 RR savings into account) it's like spending $6.83 for EVERYTHING in BOTH pictures above!  Woohoo!
