Sunday, I pulled a Sluggy yesterday!

     I am so proud of me.  I just never really understood Sluggy and her obsession ( yes obsession) with Rite -aid.  We have one here but the prices for things I would buy are 1-2 dollars higher than Wal-mart.  (beauty supplies, meds, paper products)  But all of my makeup and face cream was running out as I left Florida and I needed to do a major fix up which would be a little spendy. I knew the prices at Wal- Mart so I decided to go into the Rite aid.  I needed two Olay items that totaled over $35.00.  They had buy one get one 1/2 off so that alone saved over Wal-mart.  Okay  Also buy one makeup get one 1/2 off and I needed 4 items. So the same thing.  Then I really started to look at what I was doing when the clerk asked me if I had any coupons.  I can get coupons?  Yes off the internet.  So I told her to hold my things as Rite aid is only 3 minutes from my house.  I went home and sure enough there was a $2.00 and a $3.00 off coupon on the Olay products.  So I printed the candy, the hair color, the fem hygiene and went back.  Well all told I was able to get my hair touch up for about $1.50.  $7.99-2.99coupon in sale flier-$1.50 coupon off internet- $1.00 coupon in store then I also receive up dollars.

     When I was done I was able to accrue 14.00 in up rewards so take what I would have spent at Wal mart, for my 11 items  approx. $106.00, what I spent at Rite aid $74.00 and then subtract $14.00 I saved $46.00.  Hey this is the way to go.  If I had known the program better I am sure I could have saved even more.  I am sold.

     This week I plan to do the cereal deal they have.  3 for 9, but I have $2.25 in coupon also $1.00 if you buy 3  so less $3.25 makes three boxes of cereal $5.75, then you get a free gallon of milk.  Now those boxes of cereal cost $2.75.

It is the little things that count you know!

Thanks Sluggy you are the best!

    1. No, you converted me long ago. I just cannot stand long enough to even gather the items. Standing on concrete hurts worse than standing on grass.
