Walgreens0330

I made my way to Walgreens today because I had $5 Register Rewards that expires today. I saved 90% off the regular prices and left with $6 in RR. My OOP was $2.72. It should have been $2 less, but the cashier missed one of my $2/2 coupons and it was all a good deal anyway, so I’m not worried about it.

The breakdown of my purchase:

2 – Colgate Advance Toothpaste 2/$6
– (2) $1.50/1 Colgate Advance 3/27 SS
= 2/$3 plus $4 RR

2 – Gain Dish Soap $2.19 each
– Walgreens in Ad coupon for $0.89 Gain Dish Soap
– (2) $1/1 Gain Dish Soap (from P&G coupon booklet giveaway)
= $0.22 overage

2 – Edge Shaving Gel 2/$4
– (2) $0.55/1 Edge Shaving Gel 3/20 SS
= 2/$2.90 plus $2 RR

4 – M&M Filled Eggs $0.99 each
– $2/2 Mars Easter Candy IP (no longer available)
= 4/$1.98 (Cashier missed one of the coupons, so had to pay for 2)

7 – Snickers Cream Eggs $0.29 each
– (2) $1/2 Mars Easter Candy 3/20 RP
- $0.03 for all 7

I used $5 in previous RR
OOP – $2.72
RR received – $6
$3.28 Money Maker

My toddler is full of energy and runs around all over the place.  When he gets to the kitchen, he tends to slid around when he is wearing socks. So I decided it would help to have no-slip socks. It is super easy and can be fun to put designs that they like.

NEED:

  • Socks
  • Puffy Paints

Lay out a pair of socks so the toes are on top.  Then simply draw what you want on the bottoms.  Let dry as long as the puffy paint directs (4 hours normally).

 

NIFTY TIP:

If you need an outline to draw with, print a picture or outline of what you want (I.E. I did Blue’s Clues paw prints). Then with a pencil, trace the drawing pushing hard and going over it a bunch of times. Then put it face down on the sock. Use something hard and rub the back of the paper a few times pressing firmly. When you lift it up, some of the lead should transfer to the sock so you have an outline to trace with the puffy paint.
