Sunday Shopping

The beasts just love looking out the window!  Its such a beautiful day today.  The breeze is blowing and its starting to get that fall crispness in the air that I just love.
Just a little bit of shopping this morning -


  • Gillette Venus Razor $7.49, used $3 coupon (8/26 P&G) and got back $5 EB (Limit at least 2) = $0.51 profit
  • Alteril Sleep Aid Shot (2 pk) $5.79, get back $5.79 EB (Limit 1) = FREE 
  • Paper $2 - there's only one SS insert this week so I bought the rest of my inserts from ebay
  • Used $1 EB and $10 EB, total was $0.56
The Alteril rang up as $3.79 instead of $5.79 and no EB's printed.  Anyone else had this issue?  It did beep like crazy when she scanned it, so I don't know if it was something specific to this store.  When she manually printed the EB's, she printed one for $5.79 and since they round up, got one for $6 - making this deal a $2.21 profit for me.  I showed her that the Alteril rang up as $3.79, so I wasn't trying to pull a fast one.

Rite Aid

  • 2 eclose Face Masks $12.99 reg price, $10.39 with 20% sale price this week, used two $5 coupons (9/9 SS) and got back $10 UP (WYB $20, Limit 2) = $0.78 or $0.39 each
  • Total with tax was $12.47, paid using $10 in UP's

  • 4 Yo Crunch Yogurts $0.49 each, used four $0.25 coupons = FREE
  • 6 Stouffers Mac & Cheese $1.88 each, used three $1.50 off 2 coupons (9/9 RP) = $6.78 or $1.13 each
  • 4 Crystal Lites $1.99 each, used four $0.50 tearpad coupons (found at Walgreens) and got back $3 catalina (WYB 4) = $0.96 or $0.24 each
  • Total was $10.74
We are swimming in Crystal Lite right now, but for $0.24 a canister, I have no problem getting some more.  They're usually good for a couple years and we go through them pretty quickly.

The Ateril beeps because it ask for the birthday to be entered. Crazy but I was like whatever. Mine scanned @ the right price.

Oh ok, that makes sense. Still have no idea why it rang up $2 less than it should have.
