Crazy Coupon Capers

Sorry I didn't get to take any pictures this week. We were having company the same day that I did my grocery shopping, so I had to hurry and put everything away and get dinner made.

Here's how I did:

CVS: I picked up a couple of the monthly deals along with some clearance Propel. I ended up spending $1 ECB and $.04 cash for 3 ProMax bars and 7 bottles of Propel.

Walgreens: Almost everything was out of stock, but I found 2 of the Reach toothbrushes. I paid $3 (on a giftcard), and got back $6 in Register Rewards. I then used the Register Rewards to purchase some Vicks for my sick little boy.

Rite Aid: By utilizing the Gift of Savings promotion, and by scoring some great clearance finds, I was able to purchase 4 Christmas gifts and 2 birthday gifts for free!

Harris Teeter: I was disappointed when I got to the register only to find out that my store will no longer accept $/$$ before the other coupons. They also will now only allow 1 coupon on B1G1 items. I ended up spending $10 more than I expected to. I still was able to get $105 worth of groceries for $35.03.

So how did you do? I'd love to see some pictures since I didn't get to take any this week. Leave a comment or link and and share the deals you got with your coupons!


  1. I just started doing my blog...but I love reading yours! Thanks for all the helpful posts!! I guess I am going to have to start posting pictures:)

  2. Great deals! I'd love to hear more details on how you got the free Christmas gifts. I'll have to get my thinking cap on and see if I can come up with any Gift Of Savings scenarios of my own. :)

  3. Looks like you got some great deals! Congrats on scoring the free gifts. :-)
