Walgreens Trip, September 22-23, 2010

Here's what I got at Walgreens. (NOT PICTURED: One snack size package of chocolate chip cookies that Olivia "discovered")  I ended  up having to go over to the one on 4th Street because the Hwy. 80 one is almost always out of everything.  Don't forget that we have 3 Walgreens in town.  You can always drive to another one.  Yay!!

It was a great week for those who love air fresheners.  We cannot use them in our house, but I know several people who really enjoy them (my sister being one of them) and I can gift them to those people.  Also, with Christmas sneaking up on us, I can use these for all of those "Bring a gift that is under $5" parties. ;-)

  • 8 packages of Bic Highlighters (I had a rain check from a long time ago that made them .49 each! I did not clear the shelf either!  There were several left.)

  1. new follower from southern savers. I'm not big on walgreens yet (slowly working up to it as it seems the most confusing) but I love reading about anyone who can save this much!!

    please come check out my blog and my savings @

  2. How do you get several coupons for the same item? Are these always from the newspapers and you just buy several papers every Sunday?

  3. I get most of my coupons from the Sunday paper. I purchase the Dallas Morning News double edition. Sometimes, if it is an exceptional week for coupons, I may purchase two, but this is rare because it would cost me $10!

    I also get a few coupons from the older ladies at my church. Once they found out I did couponing, a few ladies started to sporadically bring coupon inserts to me. It is very kind and generous of them.

    Lastly, I print the very good coupons as soon as they come out. I do NOT print every coupon that is out there. For me, that is too much ink to use. However, I know that .50-$1 Reach toothbrush coupons means free toothbrushes. I know that .30/1 Yoplait Greek yogurt means .19 yogurt. Then I save them until the sale comes around.

    I had so many Airwick because there was two weeks that had those coupons. I also got one from one of the inserts from my church friends.

    Did that help?

    Have a great day!!
