She sent me a lovely blue apron for my blue apron collection as well as a pack of vintage rick rack for my stash. Thank you Jennifer! See how it its perfectly into my blue collection? Yes, I know, I have let some red and pink sneak into my all blue collection. But, the main colors are still blue. Any excuse for keeping something......
Now it's time for another round of "You Paid What?". I've been on quite a shopping spree at Walgreen's for the past three weeks. It all started when they had Cover Girl Make-Up Buy One Get One 50% Off. I had coupons for $1.00 of each one, which lowered the price even more. And, if you bought nine items, you got a Register Reward for $20.00 off your next purchase.
Swiffer products were also included in the $20.00 Register Reward, so I bought a Swiffer Wet Jet for the bathroom floors (badly needed) and a Refill Bottle. On that initial trip, I bought The Swiffer Wet Jet, Swiffer refill, 2 CG Eyeshadows, 2 CG Blush, 2 CG Nail Polish and CG Make-Up Sponge. After my coupons, I spent $35.00, and I received the $20.00 RR, which was actually two $10.00 RR, which make it easier to spread out into more deals.
Trip #2 netted a Venus Razor for $9.99 and a set of ice cream bowls for $4.00, after coupons the total was $10.99 - I used the $10.00 RR for a total of 99¢ and then I received a $6.00 RR for buying the Venus Razor!
Trip #3 I used the $6.00 RR to buy Coty Pressed Powder for an Out Of Pocket cost of 9¢. No RR or coupon, but I needed the Coty Powder!
Trip #4 I bought the following:
I had coupons for everything pictured except the Coke which was on sale for $1.00 a bottle. The Gummies are normally $2.49 each at Walgreen's (ridiculous!), but were on sale for 99¢ and I had three coupons for $1.00 off two bags. So, I paid $3.00 for what they thought were $14.94 worth of Gummies. I tried to get my total close to the $10.00 RR for a free spree, but when I checked out some things rang up less than priced (which I normally love), but it brought my final total to negative $1.23. So, I was forced to throw four bags of M&M's in to make my total 86¢. (One bag mysteriously disappeared before the photo shoot...). And, I got a $3.00 RR for buying the Razor. So, I am still "Rolling" my Rewards for more and more loot.
Razors are never in short supply at my house. I can always find them on sale with coupons and maybe Register rewards to boot. We never buy refills, just crack open a new razor. They make their money on the refill blades. So, you can usually find a good deal on the Razor themselves. The Gummies will be hidden in pockets and purses for upcoming Movie Days. Yes, we sneak candy in the movies. Don't you?
