Deal Example

Walgreens Deals!
School Supplies - I am a sucker for school supplies. I like to buy them for myself and I'm not in school.....when I was in elementary though, I loved getting my own pencil box with everything to go inside on the first day of school. I organized and re-organized those items and loved the bright colors, may be because I love art, but I think I may have an unhealthy relationship with school supplies. They make me happy. Is that weird? But they Really make me happy; especially at these prices!

Bic 2 pack gel roller pens were on clearance for .89, I had $1/2 coupon so each package was .39. Or .19 per pen

Papermate 6 pack of mechanical pencil's .19 per package! .3 each

Paper clips .16

Packages of 10 Prism pens .19

3 Subject notebooks 120 tear away sheet books .99 down from 3.99

College ruled 325 sheets filler paper 1.50

Pack of 12 pencils .29

Bic 10 packs 1.33 per package

Eraser packs .19

Crayola 12 count colored pencils .99

Crayola 24 pack crayons .25 at Walmart (not shown)

Book covers .99 down from 4.99

100 pack Note cards .66

I also bought a Pilot G2 Gel Pen for $1
which has a $1 Register reward attached to it too.
So those were "free!"

All together it was $33.98
Regular price should have been $168.86
That's an 80% savings!!!
And we have enough school supplies to last
Cameron, through 5th grade: (He's 4)
Nathan through 9th grade which he starts in the fall :)
Nathan's great at losing stuff

Tylenol is on sale for 4.99, there is a Register Reward for $3 for each one you buy - Register rewards are good towards your next purchase at Walgreens, so $3 off my next transaction....

So with each consecutive transaction I had $4 in Register Rewards from the pens and the Tylenol; which made Tylenol 99 cents! I usually break my transactions up in a few days time so I don't look like a dork.


Trident on sale for $1.39 per package
-$1/1 coupon = .39 each
M&M's were on sale for $2 per package
I used register rewards and $1/2 coupons to bring these to - FREE!

Hefty Zip Bags any size were all B1G1, so $3.29 each or $1.64 for two
with a $1/1 coupon they were .64 each

Reynolds Wrap was $1.59 on sale with $1/1 coupon they were .59 each

I usually only buy as many items as I have coupons....within reason. But needless to say I had a great time at Walgreens this week for the 6 transactions and 2 stores I visited I saved over 75% on everything I bought.
