Well, I was hoping to get to 3 stores today, but I ran into some difficulty. First, I am already off on my days after having a small stint in the ER Sunday morning, which threw off the rest of the plans for the weekend and made us a day late getting home. Then, I chose to go to CVS first, since I figured I would have cold items at Aldi's. Big mistake. Aldi's closes at 7 pm, so I was 1 minute late getting there. Then, I thought about getting a few free items from Walgreens, but they were out. So, looks like tomorrow I should be inundating you with updates about Walgreens, Aldi's and Krogers. As for now, I did pretty well at CVS. We got $47.74 worth of product for $6.83, before tax, an 85.7% savings. We also ended up with $6 in RR and 10% off our next beauty purchase, so it was more like $0.83 we paid. I used $5 RR from last week, a $3 off $10 beauty purchase (2/$5 Nivea lip gloss and then 2 more that were clearanced at $1.04 + Pantene Pro-V at $3.49), free Pantene Pro-V coupon, $3/2 Nivea lip products, $3/1 Bic Soleil Razor, $1.50/1 Colgate toothpaste, (2) $0.25/3 Puffs tissue, $2/1 CVS snack item (marked at $1.49). Now I need to finish tomorrow's shopping lists!
