3 Trips to Walgreen's This Week!

Despite a busy week of doctor appointments and other commitments, I managed to make it over to Walgreen's three times because the deals were just that good! :) Granted, Walgreen's is less than half a mile away from where we live, but still, getting out with an infant is never the easiest.
So, on top of the back-to-school sales, there were some great Register Reward deals this week, which I was able to roll-over a couple times and take full advantage of. Here is what I got...
 2 tubes of Colgate toothpaste, a pack of G-2 red pens for my hubby (professors use red ink), 10 highlighters, a pack of 3 glue sticks, 3 wooden rulers, 2 Dr. Scholl's Hidden Arch Supports, 2 pencil/crayon boxes, a box of 100 paper clips, and a small notebook for a grand total of $2.21 after tax, with a total savings of $41.89! Plus, I have $3.50 in Register Rewards to use next week. I'm totally loving this "Drugstore Game!"

I saw a neat video blog the other day about a lady who was able to frugally shop and stretch her dollar enough to fill 45 Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes for $45! That inspired me to stock up on some of the above mentioned school supplies, since I basically got them for pennies, and we don't necessarily need 10 highlighters anyways.

Apart from Walgreen's, I also made an exciting stop at Walmart to take advantage of a free lunch box deal. After a mail-in rebate, I will actually make money on the transaction, as the lunch boxes were on sale for $3.00 and the rebate is for $4.96!

  1. Wow, good job Kelly! That is great! Maybe someday if I live by stores then I can do the Drugstore game, too. haha.
    And I am so glad that you swim in the ocean. :)
    And I am glad that Anna liked the swing ~ it is one of Shelby's favorite things to do!
