Look what $5.85 can buy at Rite Aid
This afternoon after dropping off some packages at the pack&ship place.. I headed over to CVS because I had read online that they had the Dove Revitalizer for only $4.00 and I have two $3.75 off 1 coupons.. of course they didn't have it and I got the story that they are a small/old store and that they probably just haven't gotten it yet.
I didn't have time to go to another CVS store, so I went across the street to Rite Aid to see if they had their Mento's gum on sale again ~ and it was for $1.00 ~ Yippee!! I still have lots of the $1.00 off coupons. I grabbed what they had and asked the lady if she had more in the back.. she was the lady who helped me out last time they were on sale. She was the only one there and couldn't go to the back right then. I told her I would head home, pick up my son when he got home from school and come back. I wandered to the rear of the store because last time I was in there they had Pringle's for $1.00 a can on clearance.. today they were down to .50 cents and I knew I had some $1.00/2 coupons.. free!
We left the store and came home.. Jackson got home and back to RiteAid we went.
This is what we got:
30 cans of Pringles (picture shows 28, I already gave away 2 cans)
63 Mento's Gum ~ assorted flavors
2 boxes of Goldfish crackers (these are reg nearly $4.00 on clearance for $1.64)
1 Charms blowpop ~ Jackson already ate it so it didn't make it into the picture.
I was upset with myself because I had left at home a $5.00 off $25 Rite Aid purchase.. I am going out tomorrow to go to the other stores and have printed a few extras.. I'll use them and see what goodies I can come home with for next to nothing.
My total today was $5.85 ~ $1.67 of that was tax.
We went to the commissary after this trip and saved $150.66 in coupons ~ I didn't take a picture of that.. in fact most is in the back of the Armada still.
At the commissary we got 43 Gillette Series Gel for .01 cents each ($1.01 less $1.00 coupon) 30 2 pack of Olay bar soap for .26 cents each ($2.26 less $2.00 coupon on each) Purex Laundry Detergent B1G1F ~ $2.50 each.. we paid $5.00 for $10 of detergent ~ steal of a deal on pancake syrup.. the kind in the bottle you microwave to heat up.. the Sugar Free was only $1.99 and we had $1.00 off coupons ~ .99 cents each, I got in the mail today a book with coupons in it and one was for a Free Cascade rinse agent so we got one of them, 2 Boxes of Claritin 10 pack Reditabs on clearance for $3.99 and we had $2.00 of coupons.. $1.99 each box, and some Frosted Mini Wheat cereals on sale for $2.00 a box and we had $1.00 off coupons.. $1.00 a box, we got Pop Tarts for .95 cents a box.. they were $1.50 and we had .55 coupons, we got 6 packs of Snicker's, 3 Musketeer's and Twix candy bars for only .75 cents each pack!!! Kashi Go Lean waffles were $2.18 and I had 2 $1.50 off each box.. .68 for a box of waffles. 23 things of Meto's Gum.. $1.05 each and we had $1.00 off each one.
We got some other stuff such as meats, shampoo.. but our total was only $63.27, $10.19 of that was surcharge and the coupon total was $150.66 which was a savings of 73% ~ not as high as the 92% I had last week.. but the amount I think was higher, or $4.00 less.. either way, that's a whole lot of stuff for FREE!!!
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
