Here I am!

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is having fun getting ready for Christmas!

We went on vacation, had a fabulous time, got moved, got totally sick and am now ready to get shopping again! Did I mention that I am now within a 4 mile radius of 2 CVS', 2 Walgreens, 2 Fry's and a Walmart? Ohh yah, shopping is going to be wicked awesome! Stay tuned!

So did you take advantage of the Arm & Hammer laundry detergent deal at Walgreens? (12/10 - 12/13)


Walgreens also had a fab deal going on when you spent $25.00 (subtotal, meaning before all coupons), you got a $5.00 Register Reward (RR) back to use on your next purchase!

The deal went like this . . .

Arm & Hammer Liquid Detergent - 26 or 32 load
$1.99 after in ad-coupon (Reg. Price $6.99-$7.49)
(this specific in-ad Q came in the Wednesday (12/10) newspaper, so if you don't get the Wed. paper, you might not have known about this unless you keep up with other $$ saving blogs. Most Walgreens also had this Q at the front of their stores with their regular weekly fliers).

Buy 4 Arm & Hammer Liquid Detergent = $27.96 ($6.99 x 4)
Use 4 printable $1/1 coupons
Then give in-ad coupon (took off $5 for each, $20 for 4)
Spend $3.96 plus tax out of pocket,
Get $5 in Register Rewards back!

Since I didn't have the printable Q's (cuz my internet wasn't up yet), I spent $7.96 + tax for my first transaction, got my $5 RR, and then on subsequent transactions, I gave them the $5.00 RR that I earned previously, so I only paid $3.21 for 4 bottles, and got another $5.00 RR back each time because my subtotal went over $25.00!

That's only $0.80 cents per bottle and 2 1/2 cents per load. WOOT WOOT! Costco can't even come close to that kind of savings . . . I've tried.

We had a bunch of errands to run all over town, so needless to say, we hit up quite a few Walgreens and now have an abundance of laundry detergent. My hubby even got into it and had a great time. Great for our year supply! Thank you Walgreens for being so good to me!

Girl, you are SOOO Lucky to have a CVS and a walgreen's near you. The nearest Walgreen's from me is almost in Baltimore (about 20 miles). Good thing I have my CVS (I've become quite good at CVSing!)

Glad you are over your sickness! :) Merry Christmas!

Awesome deal, girl! I did catch the deal but I only got two because time was NOT on my side that week :( I still have a thing or two to learn about getting deals - so keep posting. I love hearing about all the deals you get :)

If you are borderline diabetic, you had better NOT eat the chocolate mint turds. They'll kill you for sure.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
