Walgreens Deals, Etc.

Today I went ahead and did my weekly Walgreens shopping. I went over "the list" from The Grocery Game and cut all my coupons out last night. I think it was a rather successful mission, though I am convinced I do my best work at CVS still. I know some of the items are a bit odd - for instance, I was told it was nice to have those Cottonelle wipes and the Thermacare heat wraps when I am in the hospital having this baby, so I decided it was best to purchase them on sale and with coupons! All of the baby swings take batteries, so I needed to stock up on those too. I ended up getting the toothbrush and toothpaste for free. The Tide detergent is "Tide Free" so it is safe to use with the baby items. We also needed the cream of chicken soup for some cooking we are planning on doing. I have those Febreeze Noticeables and needed a refill, so I ended up getting that one for $2.99 when they typically cost upwards of $5 or more each. Somehow, I had not bought any lotion for me in all these deals, so I decided it was time to get some (and of course it was on sale and I had a coupon!).

Total Spent: $39.79
Total Saved: $33.35
*I have $6.50 in Register Rewards for next time I shop there!!

I did do Publix this week as well and spent something like $17 and saved roughly $14 - not too bad!

I was looking at what is on sale at Kroger this week, and I don't believe I will be going there this week. The only thing that really jumped out at me was Toaster Strudels, and I am not sure it is worth it to go just for a box of those (even though I think I could get the box for something like $0.28). Hopefully the deals will be better there next week!!
