  I realized today that the only circulars I look at in the Sunday paper are the drugstores!  The other stuff is nothing I need or can afford right now, but the drug stores have some amazing deals, and I thought we could share what we've gotten, or which stores have which sales.  I know that they can vary by state, but I love hearing how someone saved money no matter what ;)

 Today I hit Rite Aid.  They had a buy 4  12 pack Pepsi product for $12 and get the 5th one free. It came out to 2.40 for each 12 pack of soda. The same 12 pack at Walmart this weekend was 4.39 each!  My DH works midnights and drinks a lot of soda.  At $1 each, it really adds up. So I got 4 12 packs for him ( and one for me :) and they'll last the entire month, and I spent less than he does for a few nights of work!  They also had 24 pk of water for only 2.99 so now I can save almost $20 a week w/o him tossing money into the vending machine!

  Our CVS also has Dawn dishwashing liquid on sale for .99. There is a .25 coupon in today's paper, so you can get a good sized jug for only .72!

  Our Dollar General had Caress Body Wash on sale for 2.75 and I had coupons for 1.00 off. So I got two, with tax, for 3.87.   Just one at Walmart or CVS is over $4!

  Anyone else find any good deals this week?

Items that are full price are to high at CVS, cheaper at Walmart, but I watch http://iheartcvs.com/ & http://Iheartwags.com for cherry picking deals.  Like that they give you the coupon matchups. Got some great deals in the last few years.  Make about  $16 on extra bucks each quarter have lots of cripts.  

Last week I got several of the Christof trial shampoo and conditionars reg $2.99 on sell for $2.49 used the $2 coupons I had and can try several different formulas for $1 pair.  Also had some of the Volige & Fruitopils last week and got Full size bottles for B1G1F and used $1.50 coupons to make them $1 or $1.50  for a pair.

Not sure what I will get this week, think my coupons mostly expired on Monday for the razers.

K-mart is doing double coupons this week up to $2, so may be going there this week.


 PS I got e-mail 5 of 30 today (good till Sunday) and took reday fill quize for a 5 of 25  (good till 9/19/09) for CVS

I usually buy my make-up at Nordstrom, but I've taken a liking to wearing CoverGirl when I'm just going to class, and I've found that Drugstore.com has really fantastic deals on make-up sometimes if you know what you need and is cheaper than my local Walgreens or CVS. Right now, they're offering a BOGO at 50% off, so I can stock up on blush and Lash Blast. :)

Also, I use eBates ( shameless referral plug for me if you sign up: http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=JSF3nRyyIcXhku2i0BNUbA%3D%3D ), so they'll send me coupons and free shipping offers, along with my cash back. It might sound crazy, but if the shipping is free and I can make like $2 back from cash back, that's $2 that I eventually get back to send someone a book here on PBS. :P
