11 dollars profit shopping

October 23rd, 2008 at 03:38 am

I went to the Drs this morning and blood pressure is still up 160/96 better than yesterday but not good. Will get checked again tomorrow.

We got our first snow storm yesterday - about 2 inches

Went to Walgreens where I purchased the following for $2.84

Loreal Revitalift Wrinkle cream 16.49 - $1.00 coupon. If you ask at the beauty counter there is a full rebate on this item this month. So I will get $16.49 back in rebates. Plus when you buy this product you get a free Loreal eye cream product worth $16.49. They didn't have this in stock so I got a rain check for that

4 full size bottles of Pert Shampoo. On sale for $3.49. Used one Walgreens coupon which deducted $2.50 each and used 4 $2.00 manufactur's coupons which made them free and gave me $1.01 overage for each bottle.

Bought one bottle of St Ives Elements on sale for $4.99. Used a $2.00 coupon and got a $5.00 RR on the purchase to use next time I go in.

2 4 oz can's mushrooms. Used WAGS coupon making them .50 cents each.

I recieved a $5.00 RR and will get $16.49 back in rebates. I used $15 in RRs from purchases made last week and $11.00 in manufacturer coupons.

Next stop was King Soopers where I spent $7.11 for the following

7 bananas
6 apples
2 potatoes
1 bunch of garlic
3 carrots
1 bunch celery
1 bunch green onions
2 Glade scented oil - I had a BOGO coupon and these produce $4.00 catalina coupons. Price was $4.99 each so made $3+
1 bottle Lawry's marinade - FAR plus I had a $1.00 coupon so made money here too.

I used $12 in catalina coupons from last week for the Glade products
I had $5.99 in manufacturer's coupons

I got $8 back in catalina coupons to use on my next order and I will get #3.29 back from the Lawry's rebate.

Last stop was Walmart where I spent $13.73

I got a book for $6
4 boxes Uncle Ben's long grain rice - $2 off in coupons plus a BOGO coupon.
3 packages Grean Giant Steamers. $1.27 each - 3 $1.00 coupons making them .27 each.
1 bottle Lawry's Garlic pepper - 1.98 this will be FAR
1 package Star Kist Tuna Lemon Pepper. $1.74 - $1 coupon = .74

I used 7.92 in coupons and will get $1.98 back in rebates

Total spent was $23.68
I got $5 RR back from Walgreens
I got $8 Catalina's back from King Soopers
I will get $16.49 back from Walgreens rebates
I will get $5.27 back from Lawry's rebates

Total back = $34.76 or a profit of $11.08 plus all the stuff.

I also got a $10 rebate check in the mail today and a free sample of Tide Total Care and Always Affinity.

I found a new blog I like about someone uses coupons very well - Super Coupon Girl

Text is and Link is

I finished reading my book Remember When by Judith McNaught. Romance. Very good.

    Sorry to hear about your high BP. You might have to take meds to get it under control. (I do and now mine is in the normal range.)

    I am so in awe of how you use coupons. You not only get items free, you also make money. Do you get the Walmart coupons from the paper or from a website?

    I do take medicine. That's what's scary. You can get the Walgreens coupons from the Walgreens sales ad or in their Easy Saver catalog. Both are in the front of the store when you enter.

    We are finally getting a Walgreen's here -- it seems to be taking forever to build it! Hope I can find the deals like you can.
