Walgreens strikes again--in a GOOD way :)

I had another GREAT trip to Walgreens today!
I've been looking all month for the Sambucol that's been on sale, but the stores were inevitably out of stock by the time I was able to go shopping. That all changed today!!

Here's what I came home with after visiting three stores--

28 Sambucol (each earned $1=$28 profit)

5 Lansinoh Nursing pads, 36 ct.(After ESC this month was a GOOD deal!)

1 Red Zone Body Wash (Filler for my husband!)

Huggies Diapers(Filler and always a NEED)

7 Dove single bar soap

1 Dove 2-pk bar soap

Total before coupons-- $386.88

After coupons-- $14.63

Received $10 RR (Dove products)

Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails!!!!

It seem this will be my life for the foreseeable future!

The Lord has been pleased to give me another baby boy to carry and nurture!!!

According to my sonogram, little boy and I are both doing well. My placenta previa is completely gone! Thank the Lord! And the slight separation near the cervix that was also causing bleeding has healed in the last few weeks. Our little boy is weighing about 13 oz and is 10 inches long--very healthy for 5 months!

We are so thankful that I can go back to a "normal" pregnancy--whatever that is!-- and that our lives can be a little less stressful now. If things continue to go smoothly, we hope to welcome our new little boy sometime the week of July 20th.

We don't have any names picked out yet, which is pretty unusual for us! My husband has had a "feeling" with each of our other children, and we had settled on a name before the 20 week sonogram. I guess this little one will have to wait a bit longer before we start to call him by name!!!!

I will try to keep some kind of regular prego update on my blog, or you can find me of Facebook to follow things as well.

My Walgreens Steals!


I think I'm still floating on air about the great deals I was able to get this week!!

Thanks to the awesome $5 and $3 coupons from Huggies and Walgreen's RR sale, I was able to get about $480 worth of product for only about $60 out of pocket. My wonderful husband gave me an extra $100 to use on the diapers and I used $30 off my gift card.

Before sales and coupons- $480 approx.

Earned-- $73 RR, $28 ESR

After sales and coupon--$128 approx.

I still have $40 in RR to spend at Walgreens and I will be getting $28 back on my gift card at the end of this month.

Total out of pocket(cash and gift card)-$60

Here's the list of some of what I was able to score with this money!

18 packs of Huggies diapers, assorted sizes

4 Jumbo packs of Huggies wipes

6 bottles of Garnier hair care products(ALL of these were free!)

16(?) Glade Sense and Spray or Lasting Impressions(These were either free or earned me $4!)

7 Colgate Total 4.2 oz.(Earned about $0.50 on each one!)

Axe Shampoo(Mar ESR-FREE)

Memory Formula(Mar. ESR-FREE)

Walgreens brand headache relief(Mar ESR-FREE)

3-10 pck Emory boards(Free with sale and coupon-fillers)

RightGuard Deodorant

Edge Shaving cream

2-6 packs of 16.9 oz water

3 Royal Pudding mixes

2 Ajax scrubbing powder

Sambucol (Earned $2)


4 Hazelnut Coffee Mate

I hope I haven't forgotten anything!!! I'd love to post some pictures because seeing all this is so much better than reading about it, but since we moved, it's anyone's guess as to where my camera ended up!

I have not even tried to do the math on this to figure out what each pack of diapers or wipes cost me. I think my brain isn't up to that right now, but regardless of the numbers, my hubby and I think this has been a pretty awesome week for saving money!!!
