Aaaah the week got away from me and I never got around to showing these deals in hopes that y'all could go do the same. Sorry.
But I made my first ever purchase from Dollar General last week. I went in the store one other time but never found what I was looking for and left. I read on another blog that these smaller bottles of the Nivea body wash were unmarked but on sale for just $2. I had six $2/1 coupons left and figured it was worth a shot as I was near there anyway.
The were not marked on sale at my store- regular price was $2.50 so they would be cheap even without the sale. But I did a trusty price check and it turns out, they were ringing up at just $2. Yay! I'd read a few blogs over the year saying that DG gives you issues if your total is $0. Not wanting to deal with that possibility, I picked up the snack pack of peanut butter, something I will always eat, for just $1. Not too shabby! And again, even at full price, these bottles would only run you $0.50 after the coupon. My store had a bunch but only in this one scent (which I really like so it all worked out peachy for me).
Next I ran across the street to Rite Aid. Cold and Flu season is around the corner. I used $2 +up RR in addition to coupons, paid about $2 out of pocket and earned another $2 in +up RR. I actually consider them to be $1 each as I don't factor in Reward bucks until I use them. But that's still an awesome price. The Triaminic went into my donation box. I don't often pay for what goes in there but figured it was a great price and something that is rarely afforded by mommas shopping at a food pantry.
And finally, I popped into Price Chopper for a few things. I only took this one photo though because I am never in that mindset when putting food away. The peanut butter was totally FREE though! And tastes delish with my inexpensive (thanks to a PC store coupon) bag of apples. Don't you agree that things taste better when you pick them up for FREE? Mmmm!
I will try to do a much better job of sharing deals and shopping trips this week. It's my first week in forever without a zillion evening meetings so it might actually happen!
