So, this is how I turned $20.72, into $91.88 worth of products for my family. That's $71.26 that we save with the store's R R's and coupons.
My husband and I are well over 50.
This week Walgreen's has a deal on Anti-Aging Total Body Defense, it is suppose to be good for the heart, memory, and vision.
What is it really?
Vitamin D , Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, and Vitamin B12, all things we both need.
The price of this item is $10.00
Now what is great about this, is you get a $10.00 RR. So of course you pay for that one and get back the $10.00 dollars, now I am on a roll! Next I purchase the Schick Hydro razor, priced at 8.99 I had a $2.00 off coupon and they gave me a $6.00 RR, I also purchased the $4.99 Aquaphor Lip Repair. I had a $1.00 coupon for that and they gave me a 4.99 RR . Is this fun?
Transaction 3 okay now I have 10.99 in R R's, ( Explaining this is taking forever)
What happened is, I went to 2 Walgreen' spent $20.72
This is what I gave home with.
2 Bottles of the Anti-Aging Vitamins
2 Schick Hydro Razor kits
1 Aquaphor Lip Repair
1 bottle of Baby Magic Body Wash
3 12 oz bag of Nestle Chocolate morsel
1 Reese's Peanut Butter cups
2 Colgate total advance 4 0z tubes of toothpaste
3 packs of 40 ct paper plates
1 18oz can of Sun Maid Raisins
I 500 count pk of Sweet & Low
2 boxes 8ct of sugar free Wyler's Light Singles to go Peach Tea Mix.
1 box of Q-Tip Swaps 375 count.
All this, I only spent $20.72, Yes I went to 2 stores, and it did take 7 transaction to make this happen.
I can hear some of you saying," That is a lot of work." I put about 2hours into checking the ads and matching my coupons and going to the stores. The things I purchased would have been
$71. 16 saved
Now if you divide that by 2 that is $35.58 an hour for my time.
I couldn't make that on a part time job. I do consider this to be my
part time job. To save that much money for the family, with 2 hours of my time.
It is worth it to me.
Now I have money left to visit Kroger, Publix, and Ingles and see what I can save there.
