cOuPoN CrAzY

I just got back from Walgreens. A mighty fine day of cuponing if I do say so myself. I am pleased as punch!

Here's what I got:
1 @ Lysol Disinfecting Wipes & Lysol Disinfecting Spray 2/$5
2 x Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner 2/$3
2 x Airwick Ultra Freshmatic Kit $5.99 (reg. $11.99)
3 x General Mills Cereal (Honey Nut Cheerios is what I got) 3/$7
2 x Bertolli Chicken Dinner $5.99
3 x Skippy Peanut Butter 3/$5

Cupons used:
$1 man q Lysol Disinfecting Wipes
$1 man q Lysol Disinfecting Spray
.75 man q Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner
.50 ip q Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner
$4 ip q Airwick Kit
$4 ip q Airwick Kit
$1 ip q Honey Nut Cheerios
$1 man q Honey Nut Cheerios
.50 man q Honey Nut Cheerios
$1.50 man q Bertolli Dinner
$1.50 man q Bertolli Dinner
$2 rr
$8.25 gc
$5 sc

Results After Coupons:
*Lysol Wipes and Spray: $3 PLUS there is a MIR (mail in rebate) for $1 making them $2 or $1 each.
*Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner: $1.75 or .87 each
*Airwick Freshmatic Kits: $1.99 PLUS there is a MIR for $3 on each one. They pay me $1 for each kit I buy. I made $2 because I bought 2!!!
*General Mills Cereal: 3/$4.50 PLUS I got $2 in RR (Register Rewards) making them 3 for $2.50 or .83 each.
*Bertolli Dinners: $4.50 each. PLUS I got $5 in RR for buying $15 worth of specified product: 2 Bertolli Dinners and 3 Skippy Peanut Butter. That's $14 in product (after coupons) minus the $5 rr=$9. I basically got the Peanut Butter Free and the Bertolli at a sale price. Not too shabby.

Walgreen's advertised savings: $29.86. Manufactured coupon Savings: $18.75. Total Savings: $48.61.

Out of Pocket Pay:
On top of all my coupons, I had a coupon for $5 off a $20 purchase, PLUS I had $2 in RR from a previous purchase, PLUS I had $8.25 in a gift card from previous rebates that I used for today's purchases.
My total out of pocket paid was $14.77 and I walked away with $7 RR to use on my next purchases and I will be getting $7 from MIR back onto my GC (gift card). So if you want to subtract all RR's and MIR, I paid .77 after it is all said and done!!!

man q=manufactured coupon (like from the sunday paper inserts)
ip=internet printed coupon
rr=register rewards, this is exclusive to walgreens. They are good to use on your next purchase.
mir=mail in rebate
gc=gift card. I get my rebates back in the form of a gift card.

WOW!! My stepmom used to clip coupons and upc codes. She would go to the grocery store and the cashiers would be so confused b/c the register would say to pay her!! She would NOT have to pay but receive anywhere from $1.00 to $13.00! You can also call the 1-800 numbers on your foods to praise/complain and you can get really great coupons this way. I remember in STL Barnes called Doritoes company b/c he didn't like the new taste and they gave him FREE bags of chips for another purchase. I love bargains too!!

Sarah: Check your email. Wink, wink.

Rochelle: did you think we were in dire straits? Well, I guess we are, but anytime I can save some money or get something for practically free, I just can't pass it up.
