Weak week for triple coupon shopping

April 29, 2009

One of my grocery stores is doing another triple coupon promotion starting today and ending in a week. They’ll triple any coupon up to $.99. Rumor has it that they’ll be doing it monthly as opposed to every 2nd-3rd month or so.
This was one of the more really, super not exciting rounds of tripling. I’m starting to think that they plan what items they put on sale during triples around what coupons/coupon amounts are out there, and not to the couponer’s benefit. Which is fine, it’s just getting boring.

This cost $7.

Obliged only to Rite Aid this week

April 20, 2009

I’ll most likely ignore Walgreen’s and CVS this week because Rite Aid has a lot to offer. Ah… Capitalism.
I’ve already made 1 trip and I have 1 more planned. I’ll most likely have at least 3 trips in the bag at week’s end.
Two majors things I will have accomplished here: Lots of toilet paper in the house along with some Dove shampoo and conditioner that I really like (but only ever experienced through tiny free samples). So here’s the low-down:

Trip 1:
4 – Cottonelle 4-pk
1 – Bengay Ultra
1 – RA brand Ceterizine (like Zyrtec)
1 – Sunday paper
=$26.44
-$3 in Sunday paper coupons
-$10 in Rite Aid-specific coupons
-$6 SCR for Bengay (rebate)
=$7.44 out of pocket

Trip 2
1 – Compound W Freeze Off Kit
1 – Wartner Wart Removal Kit
1 – Dove Shampoo
1 – Dove Conditioner
=$25.98
– $2.50 in Sunday paper coupons
– $21.98 in SCRs
-$5 in Rite Aid-specific coupons
= -$3.5 moneymaker

So, those 2 trips will only cost me $3.94 +tax altogether.

The wart remover is going to in-laws with kiddies and I just remembered Listerine is a great price this week. It’ll be worked into a run and I’ll hopefully get it free.

Recent Grocery Trip

April 6, 2009

So one of my grocery stores had a triple coupon promotion last week. I didn’t go all out for it but I was happy with what I got out of it for just a few coins.

This all cost $.36, including tax. There are 3 coupons there for a free gallon of milk too (3 gals total).
