Some drugstore shopping

Hi everyone

I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. Where has the time gone? I've been super busy. Did quite a bit of shopping last week, but I need to make time to take pics and write a post.

I had a $10 RR expiring tomorrow, so I decided to hit the drugstores today.

Trans 1

1 Gillette Razor $12.99
1 Gillette Razor 9.99
2 Crest t/p 7.98
1 Halloween candy 0.20
Less Gillette DQ (10.00)
Less 2 x $10 RR (20.00)
Tax 1.86
OOP $3.02

Earned $20 BR points ($10 Gillette, $5 WYS $25, the rest was 10x points this week & I also earn 10X everyday points for the entire month, cause it's my birthday) +  900 everyday points. Earned $5 RR Crest

I was wondering why my Crest DQ didn't deduct, then realised that the Q value ($3) is higher than the subtotal ($1.16). Had I known this, I would've added a bag of Dunkin Donuts coffee that I wanted. I especially added the candy as a filler so that all my qs would deduct. Oh well, I can just do another Crest deal (Buy 2, earn $5 RR)

Trans 2

1 x Robitussin $5.99
1 x Advil Sinus congestion $5.99
1 x Kit Kat Halloween clearance 1.49
2 x Colgate optic t/p 7.98
2 x Maybelline eyeshadow 7.98
Less Robitussin DQ (3.00)
Less Colgate DQ (1.00)
Less Maybelline q (1.00)
Less BR points (20.00)
Tax 1.68
OOP $6.11

Earned 900 BR points (almost $ $13 RR ($6 Maybelline, $4 Colgate, $3 Cold/flu)

Submitted the Advil to Savingstar for a $3 credit. The Robitussin Adult should have worked too, but Savingstar says it doesn't qualify (insert eyeroll)

I immediately knew that something was wrong when I saw the total, because I had a paper cold/flu q and a DQ. Only one deducted and I assumed it was the paper one. When I got home after running errands and studied my receipt, I saw that the cashier never scanned my $3 paper q. Grrrr I was not happy. I will definitely let her know about it next time I'm there.

I added the candy so I could redeem $20 in points. We don't eat much candy, but DS loves Kit Kat.

Total Spent (BR points, RRs, cash ) $49.13
Total earned (points, rebates, RRs) $42 (should've been $48, but that darn Robitussin totally messed up my earnings. That's a $6 difference). Also, you earn lots of every day points at WAGs, so I earned a total of $21.xx BR points

Total cost : $7.13

The razors and Crest has given me enough to submit for the $15 PG rebate (I got the rest of the items at Meijer last week).

I also received a $9 WYS $30 CAT, so I will roll the rest of my $10 Revlon RRs next week to earn bonus points.


3 x St Ives b/w $15.57
2 x Covergirl brow pencils 9.98
Less St Ives q (1.00)
Less Covergirl CRT (3.00)
Less EBs (15.00)
Tax 1.35
OOP $7.90

Earned $15 EBs ($10 St Ives, $5 Covergirl)

I didn't get any newspapers on Sunday. Dollar Tree was out and CVS papers didn't have any q inserts, so I didn't have much qs to use for this transaction. I really wanted the St Ives, because it's my favorite brand. I have sensitive skin and the Oatmeal b/w is perfect for me so I didn't mind paying a little extra for it. The entire purchase counts towards a Beauty reward

Then I stopped at Dollar Tree to pick up juice for DH and look for the snowman mugs that I saw posted on a blog. I didn't find any snowman mugs, but I spotted this beautiful one. My Corelle mugs have been chipping at the tops. I don't know why, but I currently have 2 chipped mugs. I think this is about 3 or 4 mugs (of the 12 I bought) that have chipped. So I decided that if I find anything good at the Dollar Store, I would buy those instead since they are usually a better quality. I fell in love with this mug, because it matches my Corelle dishes perfectly (the color is much better in person). I bought 6 mugs, but I think I'll get 6 more to save a spares, next time. Even DH likes the mugs. 

I also did some Kohls shopping on the 1st. Kohls now starts their BF deals on November 1st and I was prepared :)

3 Pairs athletic shoes
1 Pair slippers (I love slipper boots, cause it keeps my ankles warm too)
6 Bath towels
$5.40 OOP and the rest with earned gcs. 
Earned $3.30 through Ebates/Rakuten and $30 Kohls cash. So I'm one happy mama :)

That's my shopping for today. I have a $10/50 from Meijer in the neighboring town. I'm guessing it's because of all the new Kroger stores that are popping up. I will make a list and drive 3 miles to that location. There's a Kleenex deal at Meijer this week and also a Savingstar offer. 

I also received my $10 WAGS rebate earlier this week (PG deal). I have to see if there's still time to submit another rebate.

I hope everyone have scored good deals too.


  1. My oh my you were a busy getting all the good stuff. I had to run into Rite aid before I left to use up points and I stocked up on stocking stuffer candy.

    1. That's great Kim! Don't you just love stocking up on free or super cheap gifts.
      I could kick myself for just realising that I had another $23 BC rewards expire. I feel like crying.


Meal Plan Monday

I'm so not in the mood to figure out meals for the week, so I've made an easy menu. Besides, who feels like cooking during summer.  ...
