Walgreen's Scenario for upcoming sale 1/18

I keep going back and forth about this deal so I am still up in the air about doing it.

6 Ragu Pasta Sauces $11.94

2 Skippy Peanut Butter $3.98

Total $15.92


2 $1 off 3 Ragu (I think there may be better coupons coming out in Sunday's paper)

I am looking for my skippy coupons but I probably threw them out because my kids don't care for peanut butter too much. We surely don't need anymore pasta sauce but when the store is practically paying you to take it, it is hard to pass up.

$3 off a $10 purchase (grand opening coupon)

Roughly $11 out of pocket and get back $10 Register Rewards

Walgreens Trip 1/14

Sorry no picture!

I did one transactions and got
2 4pk Cottonnelle $5 with in ad coupon
2 Bounty Basic $1.78 with in ad coupon
2 Lysol Wipes $3.79 BOGO
2 Halls Cough drops $1.98 with in ad coupon
2 Celestial Tea $3.49 BOGO
1 pack of skittles $.99
1 LowRider Magazine (Chris insisted) $4.99

My goal was to stay above $10 so I can get $3 off(my store is having Grand Opening) but she scanned it first. I had $6.55 in coupons, my total out of pocket was $13.29. I had anticipated only spending $8 but oh well Chris deserves a treat. I saved $22.35!!

Organizing my children's room's

Every day I antagonize over there rooms because I don't know where to start. As I type this they are in total chaos, toys and books every where! Today I came across a great article by I'm an Organizing Junkie, she did a guest post called Organizing your child's room for Tip Junkie while she is recovering from back surgery. Thanks to this post I have gathered my thought process and will begin cleaning the slate.

Trying to make the most of the $3 off CVS Brand Purchase, can't you tell!
Revlon is BOGO, so I used 1 $2 off and 1 $1 off coupon as well as a $2 CRT I got last week. So I paid $1.49 for 2 eye shadows!
CVS wipes are 2/$4 and the CVS diapers and training pants are 2/$12.99. I of course didn't buy 2 in one transactions because it is a better deal to buy one at a time and use the $3 off a CVS Brand purchase making them $3.50 each.
I will be back later once the house is clean to review my transactions.


Again I haven't looked at my receipts but I think I paid $25.xx. I got the Pepsi deal 5/$15 with a $5 Register Reward but it didn't print so I am thinking of taking it back to another Walgreen's. Seems ridiculous to have to wait 6-8 weeks to get it back by mail. I planned on using the $5 RR to use towards the above pictured.
The Oust is BOGO this week and was unsure about the BOGO Manufacturer coupon so I asked and she said she would accept it. Revlon products are also BOGO so I used 6 $1 off Manufacturer coupons and the YES products I had a BOGO coupon that is expiring and I love these products!

Kmart Doubles!!

A couple of months ago I tried the Kmart Doubles shopping without success and noticed much was overpriced. So I did my research before hand on and pulled out my coupons that would make the items free. Of course I was disappointed with about 8 of my coupons, they didn't even have the product but I faired pretty well. I haven't pulled out my receipts yet but I know I paid $2.xx. The Dove I know paid $.99 out of pocket and the rest was tax.
