Itsy-Bitsy Panties

A&P - wanted to take advantage of the great Pepsi deal
  • 4 Pepsi 12 packs $5 for all of them!
  • 2 Tostitos $2.50 each *both these prices are only when you spend $15 on other stuff
  • Milk $2.04
  • 2 English muffins $1.99 each
  • 8 Friskies cat treats four for $5, used four BOGO coupons (1/24 SS, cashier took off max price of $1.71 each) = $3.16 or $0.39 each
  • Total was $20.03

Walmart - picked up four packages of the cat litter stuff we use for $4.73 each

Walgreens - bought three of these. The multipacks work too, but the sale ends today (2/5)


  • Bayer Contour Blood Glucose Meter $14.99, used freebie coupon (10/25 RP) and got back $10 RR = $10 profit

At another store, I got:

  • Scalpicin Medicated Wipes (12 pk) $5.99, got back $6 RR = FREE
  • Hanes undies $6.99
  • $10 Walgreens gift card - tried to just put $8 on it, but apparently the minimum is $10
  • Used two $10 RR's, total was $3.40

This transaction was a bit of a mess

  • Vitamin Water Lip Care $1.99 (Acai 0.14 0z., Dragon Fruit 0.14 oz., Fruit Punch 0.14 oz., Lemonade 0.14 oz or Strawberry Kiwi 0.14 oz.), got back $2 RR = FREE/$0.01 profit
  • $10 Walgreens gift card
  • 3 Scotch bubble mailers $0.39 each with in-circular coupon
  • 2 Jiffy muffin mixes $0.50 each with in-circular coupon
  • Dulcolax $13.49, used $3 coupon on package and could send away for $5 rebate (form on package) but I think I may just return this. Wasn't expecting it to be so much
  • Used two $10 RR's, total was $4.01

When I opened up the Hanes, I was very surprised to see how itty-bitty these things are! My boyfriend was convinced I'd bought kids underwear by accident. These are streeeetttttccccchhhhhyyyyyy! Not very comfortable though. I don't think I'll be buying any more any time soon.

I love your post but I wish you would quit bragging about buying gift cards with your register rewards because a few of us are enjoying doing that and we are afraid the word will get around to wallgreens and they will fix their cash registers where they will not let you do it

Martha,
Wow, if you feel that way, feel free to not read my blog.

Suz, to be fair, I don't think of your gift card posts as anything more than "listing," like you do your other items. I would not call it bragging! I see lots of bloggers post about buying gift cards with the RR anyway, so it is not a big secret squirrel event. Anyhow, always love your blog..your photos are always fun and your quirky and fun titles/posts are always good for a smile! Thanks!
Warmth,

Tracey,
Thank you for the support! The word "bragging" just rubbed me the wrong way. :)
