Cut your grocery bill in half - book review

January 3rd, 2011 at 08:45 pm

I got this book from the library. It's written by Steve and Annette Economides - the so called America's Cheapest Family. I thought it was pretty good. Especially for people who haven't already tried a lot of different ways to cut their grocery spending. But there are even ideas for people who have been frugal for a long time. Worth reading at least and if you are new to frugal living very worth while.

I went to Walgreens again today and got 2 more flu and dishwashing detergent deals. I also got the following deal on Boost.

24.00 - 4 6-packs of Boost @ 2/12
-12.00 - 4 $3 coupon
------
12.00 - got back a $5 RR, wyb $20 in certain products get $5 back. So I ended up paying $7 for the 4 6-packs, which is the normal price for 1.

I'm starting to get my birthday freebies in my email. My birthday is next week and I sign up for a lot of freebies. Today I got email for a free gourmet burger at Red Robin, a free bowl of noodles at Noodles and Company and $5 off at Jason's Deli.

    Do you need to have a Walgreens store card to get RR or do they print on everyone's receipts? I'm new at all this!

    No card for Walgreens!

    Walgreens rules are different from other stores. They are a little harder to master. You don't need a card, but unlike other stores where you can use a $$ on your next order register reward/catalina with other coupons, with Walgreens they consider those a manufacture coupon and you can only use 1 manufacture coupon per item. Go here for a primer on using coupons at Walgreens
