WALGREENS: Bought $64.66 – Paid $18.69 – 71% Savings


I wasn’t planning a Walgreens shop, but the sign outside lured me in “$2 for 2 Dozen Eggs”.  Everything I bought was either on sale or clearance.  I try to keep my handy-dandy coupon bag in the car for moments such as this.  It usually has coupons for current sales that I am aware of at various stores, plus coupons for items that I keep an eye out for and grab when there is a good deal (such as the Blue Diamond Almonds BOGO)

Bought $64.66 Worth of Products

  • 4 Dozen Eggs, Sale $1 each
  • 6 Cans Blue Diamond Natural Almonds, Sale $3.79 for 2 (BOGO)
  • 8 Carefree Liners, Sale $0.99 each

  • 1 Kangaroo Keeper, Sale $4.99 (on clearance – two organizer inserts for handbag, carry-on, etc.)
  • 2 Mars Brand Candy Bars, regular size, Sale $0.59 each

  • 8 Mfr Carefree Liners $1 off 1
  • 2 Walgreens April Booklet – $1 off Skinny Cow Ice Cream

Happy Shopping.

$1 – New Tampax Radiant 16 ct. at Walgreen’s – Low Low Cost

This new product in it’s shiny hot pink-purple box is on shelves in Walgreen’s now.  However, I found them with the wrong price on an end cap at the back of the store at $5.49 each.

The are advertised in the weekly flyer for $3.99 and will print out a $1 Register Reward from the Catalina machine at check-out.  A friend told me that there is a $2 off 1 Tampax Radiant package inside the box (look for note about coupons inside on the front of the box).  So when I got to the register, I asked the cashier if it would be okay if I opened the box now and took out the coupon, since I was buying th package either way.  She said sure.


Pay $3.99
Minus $1 Register Reward
Minus $2 manuf. coupon from inside box*
Net Cost = $0.99

*Just in case there was a problem opening it prior to paying, I brought along the coupon for $1 off 1 Tampax Radiant from the 3/4/12 P&G insert.  $1.99 would still be a good price for this item.

Coupons – The Next Generation

Seems like it was a little bit of a boring day as far as deals go.  So I ‘ll tell you a cute Walgreen’s story.

Unplanned visit to Walgreens.  At cashier, checking out, young man (about 19/20 years old) in line behind me.  


1 Biggest Size Hershey Bar
1 Biggest Size Hershey Bar
1 Dozen Eggs
1 Dozen Eggs 
1 Chocolate Cov. Raisins, 14 oz
1 Box Raisins, Nice brand, 7 oz
1 Box Raisins, Walgreen’s brand, 7 oz
1 Box Raisins, Nice brand , 7 oz

Cashier said:  $1.38
(More than I expected.  Ha!  Had bunch of Register Rewards to use before they exp.)

Well the young man said ‘Wow. Did you really get all of that for just $1.38’.   I turned around to answer and saw his were open wide like two big gold coins.  I replied “You could too.  Just pay attention to the sales, Register Rewards deals and be willing to print or clip coupons.”  He said “Wow.  That would be great.”


It’s great to see a young person that sees it, gets it and wants it too.  They are the next generation of couponers in the making.  Then they can start innovating and coming up with new and ‘futuristic’ ways to use coupons, sales, etc.  I know that college-age young adults know how to squeeze the most out of a buck. Just imagine how they could innovate and find new ways to use coupons, technology and deals – all together.
