Highlights from shopping today

Oh man. I'm done. We're supposed to be leaving for Mammoth in the morning, but I had to do some shopping today. I hit up Rite Aid, Target, Vons and Albertsons. Here's a few of my favorite deals:

Rite Aid:

-5 Free Packs of Kotex Panty Liners on sale for .99¢, I had five $1.00/1 any Kotex product. Those will be donated to church for the Manna Ministry.

-BOGO 1/2 Almay Eye Make Up Remover:  $5.50 & $2.75, had 2 $2/1 any Almay product. I submitted for my Single Check Rebate of $5.00, so that's going to be a .75¢ money maker!

-BOGO FREE Skittles, I put them away for Easter Baskets. :)

Target

-Seventh Generation Anti-Bacterial Wipes: $2.99

Target coupon: $1.00/1, Manufacturer's coupon: $1.00/1= .99¢!!

-Reveal Light Bulbs: on sale $2.00 (down from $2.64)

Target Coupon: 2 $1.50/1, Manufacturer's Coupon $1.00/2= 2 packs for FREE!

-Excedrin: on Sale for $2.54, Coupon for $2.00/1= .54¢!!

-Starburst: BOGO FREE COUPON= .64 for 2 Starburst, these too have gone into the Easter basket stash.

I also got Free travel sized Johnson and Johnson Baby Shampoo & 2 Travel sized Right Guard Deodorant. These will also be donated to Manna Ministry.

I also scored an Easter goodie for Siah Man: a whole Clone Trooper costume for $4.98!

Albertsons:

I had the best cashier! He saw the transaction I was making for the Catalina coupon and asked if I wanted to do two transactions! Woohoo! He told me he liked to see people save money & if someone does all the work to clip coupons and save that the least he can do is help out at the check out stand. MY KIND OF CASHIER! Now if they were all like that!

I got 6 boxes of Fruit Snacks for $1.00 each used (3)  .50¢/2 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks = $4.50 + a $3.50 catalina coupon!! 6 boxes of Fruit Roll ups usually would go for about $14.50 at Albertsons...

I had some awesome savings on my second purchase:

-Kraft All natural cheese, on sale for $1.79 (down from $4.89- question: who would pay that much for a thing of shredded cheese???), they had blinkie coupons $1.50/2, so I got 4 packs and used 2 coupons= $4.16, less than the price of one package normally!

-Swiffer Sweepers were on sale for $10.99, I had a Buy one Sweeper, get one refill for free coupon from The Home Made Simple Coupon booklet. The refills themselves are usually $10.49 and I figured it couldn't hurt to have a back up Swiffer (or a house warming or wedding gift!) and got both for $10.99

-Purex 3-n-1 was on sale for $4.99, I used a BOGO FREE. So I got 2 for $4.99, you normally pay $7.49 for 1.

Vons

Vons has a frozen foods deal going on right now, buy $25.00 worth of participating products and get a $10.00 catalina coupon on your next purchase.

I did two purchases, and got $20.00 worth of catalinas. Nothing too spectacular here, but my freezer is so full that I couldn't put anything else in it!

I think that's about it, but I did want to go over what I got for free today:

-5 Kotex Liners: $5.00

-1 Pack of Skittles: .50¢

-1 Johnson's Baby shampoo: $1.00

-2 Right guard deodorants: $2.00

-2 4-packs of Reveal lightbulbs: $5.28

-1 Pack of Starburst: .64¢

-Purex 3-n-1: $7.49

-Swiffer Refills: $10.49

That's $29.18 that I didn't pay for!! :)

Well, now I'm off to finish packing and preparing for this fun weekend in Mammoth.
