Free Candy Bars at Walmart

Walmart has Twix, Snickers, 3 Musketeers, and MilkyWay candy bars on sale for $.50. Use the $1 off 2 coupon from 7/26 Red Plum and they will be FREE!

Walgreen's this week

I made 2 trips to Walgreen's this week. Here is what I got.

4- 12 packs Sierra Mist $10.92 (buy 3 get one Free)
4- Scotch bubble mailers $.39 each less 4- $.50 coupon
4- 3 packs of gum 2$2.69 less 4-$1.00 coupons
Gummy Worms $.99
Less 2- $1.00 register rewards
Total after tax $11.51

Gallon of Milk $2.59
6- 3 packs of gum 2/$2.69 less 6-$1 coupons
2- Rimmel Foundations B1G1 Free $6.99 less $3.00 coupon
m&m $.49
Total after tax $10.15

This is how I chose what to buy:

I should now have enough foundation and powder for my 16 year old step-daughter to make it the full school year. I will be on the look out for eye shadow and eye liner to complete to box I have stashed. The gum was a good price since I think we supply the whole school bus with gum. The bubble mailers I will stash back as I usually need these around Christmas. I forgot to buy Milk yesterday so it was a must and we do not have any can pop left. I was so glad they didn't make me get a free Mountain Dew (what the coupon said) since we try not to drink much caffeine.

Are you wondering why no posts

It has been quite busy since we got back from Vacation. I haven't done much shopping except for some school supplies at Walgreen's. I actually have a week to myself . I can't believe a whole week to myself. The kids are at their mom's and my husband is out of town. Tomorrow I will look at the ads and see if there if anything I can't live without for the upcoming week. We have plenty of stuff for me to eat from our stock pile this week. I ordered a book to read and relax this week but it hasn't made it here yet. Hope everyone is having a good week and summer.

Back from Vacation

We made it back from Vacation on Saturday and have been adjusting back to work schedules and everything. We had a great vacation even though it was hot. While in AZ, I shopped at a Fry's for the first time. I couldn't believe the great prices especially on alcohol and soda. I got a bottle of Crown Royal for $26.XX and the second bottle for $.01. We don't usually buy this as it cost over $30 a bottle here. We took some can soda with us not knowing how much it would be and couldn't believe the price there at $2.00 a twelve pack. So of course I bought more and brought it home with us. I think my father-in-laws VIP card saved us about $60.00. I wish we had a Fry's here. Since we have been back I had to hurry and gather up my A-1 coupons to use with my rain check (making them free) before the coupons expired and paired them with a $2.00 off meat coupon when you buy 2 A-1. I have never had so much steak in my freezer before. We should have enough for the summer. I am disappointed that there is not any good sales on produce this week as I need to restock my fridge from being gone.

I know I said no more grocery shopping until I came back from vacation but I found one deal that I couldn't pass up. There were many other good deals but I resisted. I got all the things pictured for only $2.01 at Country Mart. I got 4 bottles of A1 on sale for $1.99 less (4) $2 coupon. 2 packages Italian Sausage on sale $3.29 less (2)$2 coupon on meat for buying 2 A1 sauces. I needed best choice sausage for my other coupon work but since they didn't get any in the gave me their other brand and allowed my $3 off best choice items for buying 2 best choice brats or sausage. This coupon came in their ad this week so I'm sure they will have lots of questions about it. I also got 2 boxes of best choice crackers for $.89. Sorry about the poor photo - i used my phone everything else is packed. I will be back to blogging after the 10th. Hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th.
