Publix and Walgreens

Tonight I headed to Publix so that I could pick up the penny item for this week. It was Greenwise toilet paper, which I was super excited about. I also had some coupons that expired today so I wanted to use them. I did okay, but not great. Here are my totals:

Total before sales and coupons: $40.32
Total spent: $26.89
Total saved: $13.43 or 33%

My super saving happened at Walgreens tonight. I bought carefree pantiliners, 2 toothbrushes, dental floss, and Rembrandt toothpaste. According to my calculations (which I think are right, but I'm having a little trouble figuring percentages tonight), here are my totals.

Total before sales and coupons: $22.16
Total spent: $7.47
Total saved: $14.69 or 66%
Register Rewards (RR) left for next time: $7

I split this up into two transactions so that I'd have less out of pocket costs. You could even do 3 transactions to split it up even more. If I had done this all in one transaction, I would have $12 in RR leftover, but I would have spent $12.47 out of pocket. SO, head over to Walgreens this week and pick up free toothpaste, a free toothbrush or two, and some free pantiliners (among other things). Need help matching the coupons, head over to Southern Savers weekly Walgreens add. Enjoy!

If you or Cady need clothes or shoes, head over to Kohl's!!! I bought well over two hundred dollars worth of merchandise tonight for $55.00!!!

Oh my word! That's amazing! I just bought a few things at JC Penneys today and I got some good deals there (shirts for me for $5-$6!). Our parents keep Cady pretty well clothed, but I may have to see if there's anything Chad needs.
