Walgreens and Big Lots deals

I know I've been posting a lot of shopping deals lately, but please bear with me for yet another post! Thursday was my day for running errands and picking up weekly deals. Here's what I got at Walgreens with last week's Register Rewards:

Transaction #1
  • Right Guard Xtreme deodorant ($2.99)
  • Bayer quick release crystals ($2.49)
  • rubber ducks ($2.99) - I need a filler, and I needed these for Cousin Camp.

Total before coupons: $8.47
Coupons I used: $1 on Right Guard, $6 Register Reward (from last week)
TOTAL: $1.47, but I used my gift card for all but $0.15, so my out-of-pocket (oop) was $0.15!
I got $5.50 back in Register Rewards.

Transaction #2
  • Listerine Total Care ($4.50)
  • Listerine Smart Rinse ($4.50)
  • Colgate Sensitive Whitening toothpaste ($4.49)
  • 2 Walgreens breath freshening drops as fillers ($0.15 each)

Total before coupons: $14.08 (includes tax)
Coupons I used: $2 on Listerine Total Care, $1 on Colgate Sensitive toothpaste, $3 Register Reward (from last week), $5 Register Reward (from last week) and $2.50 Register Reward (from this week).
TOTAL: $0.58!
I got $9 back in Register Rewards.

So that means I spent a total of $0.73 oop and I have $12 in Register Rewards for next week. I think I'm liking the Register Rewards in place of EasySaver rebates. :)

My other great find of the day happened to be at Big Lots. They restocked some Hampton Arts rubber stamps that my friend got a few weeks ago and I was unable to get. Not only that, but it looks like they added some new ones! Check them out:

The retail value of these stamps is over $50. Big Lots had them marked at $1 each, so I only paid $6.36, which includes tax. I was pleased! :)

cute stamps! thanks for the tip, our town has a nice Big Lots and I think I will be going there this evening when hubby gets home. He is a great sport about taking me on errands.

That makes is seem like I don't drive, I do but I usually take care of our 3 month old grandson during the day and I don't feel safe going out alone with just me and a tiny baby.

anyway, thanks for the tip on the stamps!
