Walgreens trip 1/17/11

Well I will admit that I am still learning the ropes of shopping for awesome deals at Walgreens.

I did three transactions today which was a first for me.  The workers are always so nice to me and the lady who checked me out knows me well now!!  I did mix up my order on them so that kinda stunk but I feel it was still a good day.

I also purchased a few things I normally would not since they did not come with register rewards but oh well I splurged a little.

My first transaction:
4- Nyquil/dayquil products
         (on sale for $5 each and get $10 RR when you spend 20)  I had 1-$4 off coupon, 1-$3.00 off coupon, and 1-$1.50 off coupon)
BBQ Sauce
Italian Dressing
(dressing and sauce were on sale and I had a $1.00 off coupon)  (this is one purchase that is not normal for me but I did need both of those items)
I also had $5 RR from last week that I used on this transaction.

So total I spent: $11.88
Total saved:  $21.96
And got $10 RR back

Nyquil/dayquil does not expire till 2013 so I know it will get used!  Plus when my hubby was ill in Oct/Nov I think he went through a half dozen bottles of it!

Transaction #2
2 packs Pampers swaddlers
(on sale for 2/18 with $3 RR, I had 2 $2 off coupons)
Vive pro shampoo
(i would normally not buy the shampoo but I wanted to splurge on a nice shampoo to pack in my hospital bag and they did have it on sale with a $2 coupon.  :)

I also used my $10 RR from first purchase.

Total I spent: $6.99
Total Saved: $19.98

3rd Transaction:
5 Gatorade's on sale for a $1 each plus I had $1 off coupon
Fusion Razor on sale for 9.99 had a $4 off coupon and got $5 RR (Decided that they have lots of coupons for this razor but none for the cartridges... so when you can use the sale, coupon, and RR it is better to buy a whole new razor for my hubby then the expensive cartridges.)
Vive Conditioner $2 off coupon
2packs extra gum on sale for 2 for $1
Also used my RR rewards from last purchase.

Total spent: 12.13
Total saved: 16.34

Total from all 3:
Spent: $31
Saved: $58.28
RR left for next week $5

So all in all I think it was an ok trip.  Like I said I did make a few extra purchases that I normally would not make.

Hoping to get a good shopping trip at Pick N Save this week too.  Very excited they extended there double coupon days!  :)  I was also bummed that the Therma Care was sold out which would have given me more RR but ohwell!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
