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!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
