Thanksgiving day shopping

November 25th, 2011 at 01:35 pm

ytd = April 1 2011 - March 31, 2012
Coupon total ytd = 1,355.85
RX total = 375.50
Discounted Gift Cards = 207.19
Total = 1,938.54

I went shopping at both the Walgreens near me on Thanksgiving morning. I ended up doing 8 transactions, though I had only planned on 4, but a couple transactions got messed up and I had returns and redo's. Because I did 8 transactions I have 8 free Redbox codes to use between now and xmas. I'll probably give a couple of them to my niece.

I ended up using $73.25 in coupons. I spent $33.82 out of pocket and got enough RRs (register rewards) to have one $4 one left for next week and $45 on a Walgreens gift card. So I made $15.18 for all my shopping + add $1.20 per Redbox rental and I 'made' $27.18.

I got the following items. FP = food pantry donation

4 tubes Crest 3D toothpaste - FP
4 tubes Colgate toothpaste - FP
4 packages DenTek floss pics - FP
4 packages Preperation H wipes - FP
4 boxes Culturelle probiotics
4 tubes Cortaid anti-itch cream
2 3 ct packages Bic razors - nieces
9 Scotch mailers
9 Speed Wheels - FP toys
5 cans Libby pumpkin - donated 2 cans

On one of my transactions I got an MP4 player for $19.99, which mom paid me for and will give me for xmas.

I had lunch at my parents with my sister and her new boyfriend. After they left my parents and I played cards for several hours. I actually won a few games for a change. Smile

I was very tempted by the Walmart ads for a new HP computer for $289 or the laptop for $248. I decided I would drive by Walmart on my way home at 10:30 and see how busy they were and then decide if I would go back at 12. They were swamped. I've never seen so many cars in their parking lot. I just turned around and went back home. I've been watching computer prices in the sales ads for a month or so now waiting for a deal. But I can wait a little longer, that was nuts.

I finished reading my book Navarro's Promise by Lora Leigh. Paranormal - very good.

    I hate going to wal Mart on a normal day - always so crowded. I can't even imagine how it must have been with black friday and everything!

    I too hate going to Wal*Mart on a normal day. The BF and I went last night, not to buy anything but to be busy bodies. People were fighting over towels and laptops, it was complete chaos.

    I never know what the hoopla is all about on Black Fridays, maybe because I'm usually broke then. Smile

    My best deal was on Thanksgiving day as well. I got 8 boxes of cereal (4 Honey Nut Cheerios, 4 Lucky Charms) for a total cost of $ 2.44 Not too shabby.
