Wags & CVS & Milk & Bread

I think I should have stayed home, yep! I needed milk though and have a problem going to the store and ONLY getting one thing when there are sales and rebates and ECB's.. sigh. I also have decided not to use the $3/off any CVS coupon anymore since I have heard that CVS says it is not authorized, wasn't authorized to be on internet. I know there are many sides to this, and I have used the coupon, but I am just not going to any longer. Just my humble opinion. So.. Walgreens: $11.10 OOP! EEEK! However, I am mailing in for an orajel $8.49 and Windex $4.00 rebate = $ it will work out. I just hate that budget reducing! I also will get Walgreens Orajel rebate for $8.49 + 10% extra of $.84 so $9.24 on a Wags card. It was really a great deal for me, but that reduction in my budget just makes me "shudder ."So at Wags I got:
  • Milk $3.29
  • Sara Lee Bread (used $1/gallon milk w/Sara Lee purch coupon) $2 - $1 =$1
  • Dozen eggs $1.50
  • 4 oust B1G1F and used the 1/4 b1g1f coupons SS 1/4 = 4 for free
  • water bottle with 6 packets drink mix for .50 on clearance
  • mandarin oranges cans 2/$1 (school lunches here)
  • REAL SOFT wags brand? 4pk toilet paper was on sale for $.59!!! Normally $1 I think, it said until 1/17 if you think that is cheap tp..not sure if at all Wags though, so maybe call first.
  • 2 canisters of Windex wipes b1g1f $3.79 for 2 used .40/1 coupons for each and will mail in for $4 windex rebate in SS 1/11 (so was .40 coupon)
Not bad! I needed bread, milk and eggs and used my $10 catalina also. CVS ?? I was just hoping for the soyjoy and maybe the throat pops which I have NOT been able to get. Instead, I was sucked in by the chocolate reindeer pops and bought a big ol handful... for my daughters you understand! I got a 6 pack of the flavored Gold Emblem water that is $3.97 and generating $2 ecb, also 2 boxes of crackers cheese for $1.99 each, each generating a $1 ecb and I had a $1/2 coupon. I also had a $1/2 gold emblem candy. I HAD to use it! I didn't want it to go to waist.... errr, waste! Sheesh. I also bought a few more of the candy canes filled with m & m generics. Great for cookies and brownies and only 9c. Also 4 cans of cranberry sauce 90% off at .17. My total at CVS was $3.67 and I used a GC, no OOP. I used a $6 ecb to pay and I got back $4 in ecb and a $10/$50 purchase to use later!

Nighty Noodle!
