Target, Kroger, and Walmart

This and the last post were not right after another, this trip was last week :)

Kroger had a great Catalina going on and a good deal. Target had some free stuff (with using coupons) that I wanted to pick up!

Here is what I bought

It looks like I paid a ton. However I was given a late Christmas gift ($20!)

Target Trip

- 2 Johnson &Johnson First Aid Kits
- 2 Axe Body Washes w/ manly puffs attached
- 1 pack of lightbulbs
-1 spiral
-1 pack dishwasher tabs
- 1 basket
- 1 colander

What I used:
- 2 $1 off J&J product - made them FREE! (normally .97)
- Axe Body Washes were buy 2 ($5.00 each) and get $5.00 gift card
        (I had 2 $1 off coupons, but only one went through, making the total paid for both $9 or just $4 if you     count the gift card)
- $1 off coupon of lightbulbs + what I thought was a $1 off Target coupon for the lightbulbs, but now I think I accidentally used 2 Manufactors coupons (which they normally will not let you use. The cashier didn't look, and I didn't do that on purpose)- made them FREE!
-  $2.50 off Finish dishwasher tabs- made them .68!
- The colander was on clearance for $3.17
- The basket was on clearance for $3.38

1st Transation:
- Dishwasher Tabs
- Lightbulbs

Normal Total: $23.87
Paid: $9.47
Saved: $14.40
Recieved a $5 gift card

2nd Transation:
- Basket
- 2 First Aid Kits
- Notebook

Normal Total: $12.34
Used $5 gift card
Paid: $3.29
Saved: $ 4.05

This whole trip I used my Christmas money. And I still had $7.21 left! :D

Kroger Trip

- 2 Pantene Shampoo- $2.88 each
- 3 Ragus - $1.99 each
- 2 Special K water mix in 2 for $5

What I did was I bought the 3 Ragus to stock up on them since there was a buy 3 and get a $2 catalina ( $2 to use on your next purcase). Which the new Kroger in Rosenberg/Richmond did not automatically print the catalinas, my cashier didn't even know what that was! The lady had to call over her manager and I had to explain the catalina deal to the manager. The manager sent the bag boy to go and check to see on the shelf if it said what I told her. It was a long ordeal. But totally worth it!

1st Transaction:
- 3 Ragus $1.99 each
      used .75 off coupon
- 2 Pantene 2.88 each
      used 3.00 off 2 coupon
Got $2 catalina
Paid: $7.98

2nd Transaction:
- 2 Protein mixes
     used $1 off of 2
     were on sale for 2 for $5
     used $2 catalina
 Paid: $2 for both!! $1 each!

Total for Kroger: $9.98
Total Saved: $12.55

Walmart Trip

-Fusion razor blades

I used the rest of the Christmas money I had and I only paid $8.46

Total for all these trips: $18.44 that I paid (not counting the $20 gift)
Total saved: $31 plus the $20 I had so like I saved $51!!

I was so happy to find such a great deal on Axe and the Pantene. Joey now has stuff in the stockpile :)

Other than these deals, I found some great Christmas stuff deals at Target, which were on sale for 75% off. I got some Christmas time Kleenax and York Peppermint Patties for .74 each. I got the Peanuts Christmas special CD for $2.49!! I used some other Christmas money for deals too. Lol I couldn't resist the cheap Christmas stuff!

Just yesterday I went to Walgreens. Here is a great deal, if you have the B1G1 free coupon for Oust. I went Sunday. Right now Walgreens has a sale for Oust B1G1 free. I wasn't sure if this would work, but it did!! I combined the Walgreens sale with the 2 B1G1 Free coupons I had. I got 4 FREE!!! No our house is not that stinky...it will go into the stockpile! I couldn't believe it! Usually I can never find deals at Walgreens! Our's is usually out of the product or the deal doesn't work.

So if you have that coupon and need some Oust or are even driving by, stop in to Walgreens and try to get your free 2 Ousts. I heard though that they might actually want you to buy one, so grab 4. You will get 3 free and will have to pay $4.29.
