So I haven't posted a shopping trip in quite a while because there really wasn't anything to speak of, but I was pretty happy with my trip last night. I wasn't motivated to go at all this week to tell the truth (I usually go on Sundays). But I've got to keep up with my register rewards or they'll expire on me! I did this in two transactions.
$2.99 - Colgate Total Toothpaste
- $1/1 from 9/12 SS (I NEVER get the $1/1, always $0.75/1 so I was stoked)
= $1.99, received a $2 RR, so FREE
(2) $2.09 - Lever 2000 2 bar packs
- (2) $1/1 printables
= $2.18, received a $2 RR, so $0.09 each!! (donation)
(2) $6.49 - Nyquil Vanilla Cherry Swirl
- (2) $1.50/1 from 8/29 PG
- (2) $2/1 Nyquil "Swirl" from September coupon booklet
= $5.98, received a $5 RR, so only $0.49 each! (these have over a year before they expire so I will keep them)
(4) $3.99 - Playtex Gentle Glide 18 ct
- (2) $2/1 printables
- (2) $3.99 - FREE catalina coupon from buying Kotex tampons a few weeks back
- (4) $1/1 from September coupon booklet

(3) $0.65 - Flipz Pretzels (clearance - used as item fillers)
Total before tax and coupons: $38.06
Used a $2 RR, a $4 RR and a $5 RR.
Total after coupons and RR's: $1.08
(4) $9.99 - Schick Intuition Razors
- (2) $9.99 from in store B1G1 sale
- (4) $4/1 facebook coupon
= $3.98, or about $1 a piece
(2) $0.65 - Flipz Pretzels (item fillers)
Total before tax and coupons: $41.26
Used a $4 RR.
Total after coupons and RR's: $1.39
Total retail value: $79.32
Spent $15 in RR's and $2.47 cash = $17.47.
Received $9 in RR's. So it's like spending $8.47 (17.47 - 9) for all that stuff. That's a savings of 89%!! Pretty great, especially with the low cash out of pocket.
I received some pretty great coupons too! What's the secret? Check out in cosmetics and use a card, don't pay cash!
(2) $1.50/1 on any Nature's Bounty Vitamin or Supplement (no idea why 2 but this will be good for a B1G1 sale) exp 12/9/10
$2/1 any size of Cottonelle SoothingClean flushable moist wipes (I bet this will make some close to free) exp 12/9/10
