Wal 2 Wal Savings.

Went to both Walgreens and Walmart today with list in hand from browsing through the other blogs. Thanks to the “Cent”sible Sawyer and MoneySavingMom for the Walmart ideas and to the HotCouponWorld forum for the Walgreens tips.

Walgreens was a money MAKER for me today. (Items in picture above are on the left side)

Chex Mix 8.7oz .99 SALE

(4)Hunts SnackPak 1.00 SALE

(3) Robitussin 3.99 SALE (got 3 diff. kinds, stocking up for winter cold season now!) EARN’s $10RR

Visine 3.99

Reeses Pumpkin .39 SALE with ad q- at register FILLER ITEM! (Walgreens policy says if you have x# items you can only use the same # coupons.. so, since I had 10 coupons, I had to add one item to my bill in order to use my last q.)

Subtotal: 21.34

Coupons Used:

.30/2 Hunts (used 2) recent insert

2.00 Visine Walgreens q- found in the Easy Save Catalog

3.00 Visine recent insert (you can stack both a manufactorer coupon with a Walgreens coupon!)

.99 Chex found here (my cashier, price adjusted this q to make it work.. it was originally a $1 q, but the Walgreens machine won’t allow overage on a single q.)

3.00 Robitussion q (used 3) found here

1.00 RR from last week

Total=16.59 in q’s

Grand Total: $4.75 OOP PLUS EARN $10 RR!!!

At Walmart… which is not my favorite store anymore just because the cashiers at my location are always really slow and suspicios about coupons… I still managed to spend $16.47ย  for $46 worth of stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

I got: 4 Capri Sun boxes (need item) 2 Nabisco Cracker/Cookie Boxes, Pasta Sauce, 3 Sunkist Tuna Packets, 3 Glade Scented Oil Warmers, 2 Clean and Clear Blackhead eraser refills, 60 count Bandaids,ย  & 2 Johnson’s Buddies Bath soap. That’s 18 items total… for only $14.13 before tax. ๐Ÿ™‚

The items in red were free, nearly free, or had an overage after q’s.( I consider nearly free as less than a quarter)

Here’s some links to where the printable q’s were:

Bertolli Pasta Sauce $1 off

Johnson & Johnson Buddies $1 off NEW LINKS WORKS NOW!

Clean & Clear Blackhead Erasor $5 offย  (the refills at Walmart are only 5.44 and you can use this q on it! We don’t even have the actual “machine” that these go on… but they still work with manual hand power! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

All my other q’s were from recent inserts. I didn’t purchase anything without a q today!

How did you do? Please leave a comment!

    I just love and appreciate your blog…it’s very helpful. Question: Can I use more than 1 RR from a previous transaction to help lower my OOP?

    Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Yes, from what I understand you can use more than one, however like I stated in my post, the policy is that you must have the same number of items as you have coupons, and the RR counts as a coupon.
    Also… there is a stipulation that you cannot use a RR on another purchase of the same item you earned that RR for.

    For instance.. I cannot use this particular $10RR to buy more Robitussin.
    But I could use it on a different deal that will give me RR’s.
    As a matter of fact, I used it today to purchase 7 Scrubbing Bubbles items … and earned another $10RR… which I could turn around and use on the Robitussin deal if I wanted to.
    Does that make sense?
