Friday Night at Walgreens!

On September 17, 2011 in Shopping trips

I really went wild on my Friday night. I had a prescription to pick up and thought, this would be a great opportunity to score some deals while I am there! I also have been slacking and my coupon collection is bursting out its accordion file because I haven’t been using them fast enough.

I sort of hate the Walgreens on 39th and Holgate for actual shopping (it’s small, cramped and usually cleaned out) I figured I’d cross my fingers and hope for the best. To my surprise, everything I wanted was in stock, and although the deals weren’t quite as sweet as they would have been if we got Register Rewards in Portland instead of stupid points, I did alright. I saved a total of $16.37, paying $12.48 out of pocket and got:

2 18 packs of Playtex Tampons (Regular $5.25, On sale $4 – 1 $1 mfg coupon and 1 $2 MFG coupon = $2.75 each)

1 Ricola Cough Drops (Regular $2.29, on sale $1.29 – $.75 MFG coupon – $.50 Wags coupon = $.04)

2 Packages Chex Mix (Regular $3.19, on sale $.99 – $.50/2 MFG coupon = $.75 each)

1 8 pack Energizer Max Batteries (Regular $8.99, on sale $5.99 – $1 MFG coupon = $4.99)

1 Travel size Eucerin Lotion ($.99, filler item so I could use two coupons on the cough drops)

Not bad for spur of the moment, and since it’s apparently raining today, looks like I have nothing better to do than score more deals. Also, special shout out to the Dude Barn for scoring a 13-week free subscription to the Oregonian and letting me pillage their coupons yesterday!

Albertsons Double Deals

On September 13, 2011 in Shopping trips

Every couple weeks, Albertsons drops a few twice the value coupons in the Sunday Paper that will double the value of a manufacturers coupon up to $1. This week you could also get them on Facebook, though I didn’t bother. Anyway, this is generally the only time I go to Albertson’s, because it’s in Milwaukee, […]


B-b-b-bargains at Safeway

On September 12, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

I needed some Bacon bits for a recipe I was making, which required a trip to the store, so I figured, while I was there, might as well score some free stuff. Everything I got started with B, hence my super clever title, and here’s the break down. For a total of $2.12, or 68% […]


Butter for Blogging

On September 8, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

Dear Hipster Couponing fans (all three of you), I deeply apologize for the lapse in posts. I went to South America and was a little busy to try and figure out how to say “do you take coupons” in Spanish. I’m back now, but it’s going to take me a little bit to get back […]


Total Win at Target

On August 22, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

Yesterday was pretty much the perfect summer day. We floated, we ate pizza, and oh yeah, when we stopped at Target to buy whiffle ball stuff, I got all this with some change I had in the bottom of my purse. I’d had the $1 off any coupons to pick up 10 Cascade items for […]


Couponing Confessions (plus 91% Savings)

On August 18, 2011 in Shopping trips

I have a confession to make. Yesterday was 8/16, and also the expiration date on the Safeway $5/15 Frozen Food coupon. This is the coupon that made my 100% savings shopping trip possible, and I actually had enough ice cream coupons to do it again. So after resisting for a solid 6 days, I said […]


Clean Dishes at a Discount!

On August 16, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

Cruised by Safeway on my way home from work and took advantage of this deal on Gain. I could have saved another $1 if I wasn’t short one coupon, but still managed to get a good deal on some dish soap and laundry detergent. For $4.47 out of pocket and a total savings of 68% […]


100% Free

On August 13, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

I did Target “free,” but only because I had a $5 gift card to use. Today at Safeway though, I finally did it for real. My total was $0 and Bob was as excited as I was. He even yelled to next cashier over about it. Here’s what I got: 10 Magnum Ice Cream Single […]


Nature Valley Granola Thins: My Official Review

On August 11, 2011 in Product Reviews, Random Thoughts

Nature Valley (ahem, General Mills) has been desperately trying to get people addicted to these granola thins. I know because I had tons of coupons for them that have been accumulating almost every week. They were finally cheap enough at Safeway that I decided I would pick some up. They are regularly $3.99 and on […]


But it Was Free!!

On August 11, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

Two-packs of Dry Erase markers are on sale for $.99 each at Walgreens right now. A few days ago, a $2/2 packs of said markers appeared on Coupons.com (it looks like it’s already be gone). Now I don’t even own a dry erase board and have no plans to purchase one, but I’m sure you […]
