My $0.54 Diaper Run and My Rookie Mistake

rookieIf you read this blog often you are probably saying to yourself  “All this girl ever buys is diapers and soy milk.” There are days (like today) that is true.

Yesterday afternoon I realized we were dangerously low on diapers, not a  risk I was willing to take.  So I made a couple quick lists, grabbed some coupons and ran to the store.

Walgreens:
Transaction #1
Reach floss or Toothbrush or Listerine (500 ml)-3/$9, Buy 3 Get $6 RR
-$5/3 coupon 8/2 SS
-$3.50 RR from last week
Total out of pocket=$1.33
Got Back=$6

Transaction #2
Bic Round Grip Pens–2/$1
– $1/2 printable coupon
Huggies Pull-Ups-$8.99
-$1/1 from Childrens Activity Book
-$2/1 printable
Stickers-$0.50 (filler item to even out my item to coupon ratio)
-$6 RR from Transaction #1
Total out of pocket=$0.54

When I have more time I will  come up with a better scenario to roll the RR deals going on right now. Plus, the Walgreens I was at had the Back To School coupon books! They are in the front with the weekly ads. So stayed tuned for more great Walgreens deals.
Then it was on to CVS where I made my mistake.
I was checking out, had all my coupons ready when the nice cashier told me she was sorry but my $5 off $25 coupon was not good until 8-10. Argh, I did not check the date on my coupon, it ruined my whole money saving plan. I asked her to take several items off and this is what I got (we HAD to have diapers)

2 Huggies-$18, get $ ECB
-2 $1.50/1 printable
CVS Chapblock
-Free coupon from last CVS trip
Total out of pocket=$15.11
Got back=$4
Net=$11.11
Not too bad I know but much more than I had planned.

  1. I don't know if you were able to get the ready-refill coupon booklet, but there are $x/$xx coupons in there…
