In order to prevent us from having to go to five stores today, we went to CVS last night after our walk in the park. We got our Halloween candy for $5 each - $1.50/3 cpn and earned 3 EB. We took advantage of the cpn for the free Dr. Pepper 10, along with $0.55 off Pepsi Max and $1/2 Sierra Mist Naturals. I used another $1/1 cpn for the Finish tabs and a $0.25 cpn (from the machine) off of a Snickers bar (they were buy 2 get 1 free, so of course I had to purchase 2 M&Ms). We got our milk pretty cheap (I forgot to use my $1/1 cpn, maybe next time) and they had the Lipton green teas for 5/$5 - $1/5 cpn, along with 1 EB earned. In total, we got $51.73 worth of product for $22.03, a 57.4% savings. We also have 4 EB to use next time.
Today we started out at Walgreens. We took advantage of the Cottonelle ultra deal. We bought 3 packages at $5 ea - $3 Walgreens cpn - $0.50 mfg cpn = $11.50, or $0.32 per roll and we earned 4 RR. We purchased 2 packages of Halls cough drops at $1 - $1/2 cpn and we earned another 1 RR. We then used a $3 cpn for the Bengay. In total, we got $32.77 worth of product for $15.48, a 52.8% savings and we have 5 RR for next time.
Next was a quick trip to Target. I mainly went for the sale on chicken, I just wish that Target had released one of their cpns for the chicken also. I did find some decent clearance deals. The chicken was $4.99 ea. I then found some Quaker granola bars marked down to $1.86 ea, and I just happened to have 2 $1/2 cpns with me. I also found Sobe water for $0.71 ea and I had a $1/5 cpn. The receipt doesn't show what the granola bars are normally priced at, but I think it is normally $2.50 a box. So, we got $29.08 worth of product for $17.92, a 38% savings. (The picture of my Target purchases is not showing up).
Our third stop was Cub Foods. It has been awhile since I had been there, but I had found a cpn for $5 off $25, along with some great deals that I could match up the store cpns with mfg cpns. There is too much to list, but some of the highlights: General Mills cereal 2/$5 and $5 off when you buy 10, I used 3 different $1 cpns; Cheetos and Fritos were $1.79 ea with store cpn - $1/2 cpn; Country Crock sides were 2/$6 plus BOGO store cpn and $1/1 mfg cpn; frozen chicken was $3.49 for 2.5lbs; apples were $1.88 for 3 lbs; salad mix was $0.88; Sargento cheese was $1.88 ea. We got $97.22 worth of product for $42.41, a 56% savings.
So, over a two day period, we got $302.64 worth of product for $163.96, a 46% savings. Not horrible, I just have to remind myself that I purchased enough to last us over a month (I like putting it in a better perspective).
Any deals you have found that you just couldn't pass up?
