This is the time of the year that I fall behind. In everything. I have to work at lot at my job- and so my stock of items that I save up comes in VERY handy! I basically try and shop only for the necessities and get by with what we can due to lack of TIME!!!!
In fact- I have 5 weeks of coupon inserts sitting on the kitchen counter mocking me. I have only dug through them for one coupon here and one coupon there to match a sale. Will I ever have the time to catch them up before they expire????
I did 4 transactions- which is out of the norm for me. Typically I try to stick to 1 or 2 because I don't want to create waves. But this week, waves I created.
$10 brain strong gummy vitamins
$2 Goody barrettes
-$4 Brain Strong q (it was in a vitamin booklet that was right on the shelf next to the vitamins! Look for it- it's a walgreens vitamins and supplements book loaded with coupons!)
Paid $1.84, got back $10 RR for vitamins ($4 money maker!) and $2 for barretts (FREE!)
Same as the first one
$2 Goody head bands
$10 Omega Smart Fish Oil Vitamins (there are coupons for this out there somewhere, but I didn't have them!)
-$10 RR from transaction #1
Paid $2.84, got back $10 RR for omega smart and $2 RR for headbands
Same as #3
All total I spent $9.36 cash out of pocket for $48 in product PLUS I have $28 in register rewards left over!!!!!
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Had the brain strong gummies not been a money maker, I would have left them right there on the shelf. That note on the front that says 'new great flavor' is a lie. Unless you love a fishy aftertaste that lasts for hours. They are not good at all, at least to my kids. I've heard of kids that like them. I will throw them in a donation box, perhaps someone will be able to use them.
