Near “free” Rite Aid trip!

Near “free” Rite Aid trip!

I am so excited! I just got back from Rite Aid, and I’m so excited by how much I got for how little I paid! Last year my sister taught me awesome things about saving money and super-couponing. Then I shared the knowledge with my friend, Johanna, who now does better couponing deals than me! I am highly impressed with her and you can reap the same benefits as I did by following her great blog, Glorious Living 4 Moms! She got all the above stuff for just 13 cents!!!! Yes, really! See here! And here’s how my sister coupons amazingly on her blog here and here. I would have spent over $40. retail cost on the above items, but instead, with coupons and Rite Aid video value coupons, and Johanna’s blog, I only spent $7.84 out of pocket, and got 7 UP rewards back (thats actually 7 rite-aid dollars back to spend next trip)! So that’s technically 84 cents for it all, right?!!! I love it!!! So thank you, Amy and Johanna for making this possible for me!! And did I mention I did this shopping trip today with my 2 month old strapped to me who was fighting sleep and crying? So, you can do it too!

I went to Meijers, Walgreens, and CVS today… This is what I got. Guess how much?

I got it all for $32.54 (including taxes). Cool, huh? This was my 2nd time out to save like this, and I am just loving it! Thanks to my sis, Amy, for showing me the way, I am a saving shoponista already! So exciting! Oh, and the total I saved on all this was: $64.02 (if I would’ve paid full retail amounts).

So, guess how much I got all this stuff for yesterday? I went to Meijers and CVS…..
Would you believe $10.39 for it all? Well, it’s true. My sister, the master at couponing, taught me all her wonderful secrets of saving. Thank you sister! This was my first time clipping coupons and using them in the right way to get the deals… And here is how it turned out…

  • Oscar Meijer lunchables ….got 6 for FREE (reg 2/$3.00)
  • 2 boxes new chocolate Cheerios….both for 3.85 (reg 3.20/box)
  • 2 boxes Barilla whole grain pasta…for .39each (on sale for .89/each)
  • 2 Pantene products (shampoo/hair gel- CVS) for 1.99 each (reg 3.50 each)

Not bad for my first try. I can’t wait till next week to do it again, and see how many free things I can get! See, couponing does pay off! Curious to see how it’s done? Check it out here, and here, and here!
