Hi Busy-at-Home Friends!
I have two small tidbits to share in one post this evening. I am anticipating some changes to the blog site, over the next weeks and months, that will continue to add services and features for you. For the time being, I do not have a specific release date, but if you see strange pages floating around in the menus that have the word test in them or pages that momentarily change before your eyes and then go back again, don’t think I have lost my “coding” mind. (Actually, tonight I feel like I have a little bit. – lol ) I am testing code and doing some dry runs on those upcoming features.
Walgreen’s didn’t have much to fit our needs last week and so I didn’t run into Lincoln to shop there until today. I had two RR coupons, a $10 and a $6 that would expire on Wednesday. While my list was not long, my savings were outstanding!
So, this is the scenario from my latest, albeit brief, Walgreen’s shopping trip. I left the house with $16 in Register Rewards (RR) from my last trip. There were 3 things on my list: Excedrin Menstrual Complete, Hershey’s bagged chocolate and Johnson and Johnson hair detangler. ( I know, I know, don’t even say it. – lol ) I went to one store and rang up my items as two different transactions. These are the cost breakdowns.
|(1) Excedrin Menstrual Complete (reg. price $6.29. On Sale for $2.50)||….||……….||-$ 2.50|
|(1) 19.75 oz bag Reese’s Miniatures (reg price $5.99. On Sale 2/$10)||….||……….||-$ 5.00|
|(1) 19.75 oz bag Hershey’s Kisses (reg price $5.99. On Sale 2/$10||….||……….||-$ 5.00|
|(1) coupon for FREE Excedrin (up to $5.99)||….||……….||+$ 2.50|
|(1) $10 RR from previous shopping trip||….||……….||+$10.00|
|Sales Tax||….||……….||-$ .18|
|Out of Pocket||….||……….||-$ .18|
|Register Rewards Received for Transaction||….||……….||+$7.00|
So as you can see at this point, I am up $6.91, so far, plus in my hand, I have the $6 RR from the trip I made two weeks ago and the $2 and $5 RR’s I just received on the first transaction. Now, for the second one.
|(1) J & J Hair Detangler Spray (reg. $3.99. Sale: Buy one, get one 50% off)||….||……….||-$ 3.99|
|(1) J & J Hair Detangler Spray (reg. $3.99. Sale: Buy one, get one 50% off)||….||……….||-$ 1.99|
|(1) Milky Way (Using $6 RR and total before tax must be at least $6.)||….||……….||-$ .69|
|(1) $6 RR coupon from trip two weeks ago||….||……….||+$ 6.00|
|Sales Tax||….||……….||+$ .42|
|Out of Pocket||….||……….||$ 1.09|
So, totaling the Out-of-Pocket for both transactions, it looks like I didn’t do too badly. $1.27 for Excedrin Menstrual Complete, 2 large bags of Hershey’s chocolate and 2 Johnson and Johnson hair detanglers is an exceptional success. But wait…! (I love this part of the story.) I have the $5 RR and $2 RR in my purse from the first transaction. That’s right! I’m up $5.73! It made David laugh when I told him that Walgreen’s had paid me $5.73 to bring all this stuff home. – lol
It’s about time someone was willing to pay me to eat chocolate and feel no pain while I’m doing it! I hope your Monday was a great start for what will be an awesomely blessed week at your house. Go shop. Eat chocolate. Save money!
