Coupon Inserts 10 2 2011

It looks like there will be at least 4 inserts this weekend.  I have been busy saving and hope that now that I am getting better at it I can bring you more details.  This blog will start out being mainly focused on Rite Aid and Stop & Shop.  I have found it too much work to look at more than one grocery store and one drug store for couponing so I have decided to try and master these two and get to know their sales trends etc...

Rite Aid this Week

I have found a few great deals at Rite Aid this week.  The success of my planned trip depends on the coupons that come with tomorrows paper.  There seems to be a big difference regionally in the coupon previews I've seen online.  The plan is to get $126.00 worth of items for around $38.00 out of pocket and get around $20.00 in +Up rewards.

This trip is going to include razors and diapers which on their own would be around $33.00 if buying at full price.

I'll post again tomorrow when I have the paper.

The General Mills insert comes this weekend which is great for Cheerios and granola bars.  Most of the items in their include box tops which I will start collecting now that my daughter is in Kindergarten.

On another note.  I managed to get to the gym yesterday.  I am pretty sore this morning, it's been a while :)

Free Bayer Aspirin at Rite Aid next week

I just got the Rite Aid ad in the mail and at first glance there are a few good deals.  The first one of note is the deal on Bayer Aspirin.

The regular price for the 20 - 36 count is $2.99
There will be a $1.00 off coupon in this Sundays newspaper.
There is also a Rite Aid Video Value offer for $1.00 that you can use at the same time.
The final out of pocket cost is $0.99
You get a $1.00 +Up Reward on your receipt
So you come away with Rite Aid giving you a penny.

I'll post the deals as I go through the ad over the next few days.

Rite Aid Ad preview

I have usually found the Rite Aid ad scans online by now but I am not sure how reliable the ones I have seen are for my region as they have sales for wine featured and I know that my Rite Aid here in NY does not sell liquor.  Hopefully my local ad will be in the mail box this afternoon and I can start planning my shopping trip. 

I discovered last week that the $30 I needed to spend to earn the $10 +Up on Garnier was before the BOGO 1/2 sale was taken off.  This is great news.  I need to spend even less to get those +Up rewards.

I am no expert yet but I am learning and it's great to find all these savings.  The lady on the register in Rite Aid last week said she thought I had the longest receipt they have ever had when all my +Up Rewards printed out, over $30 worth.

Getting Back to the Gym and Diet

The kids are heading off to school next week so it's time for mom to start spending sometime taking care of herself.  It will soon be time to try putting on the jeans again and I have to admit, I'm dreading it.  So before I even attempt it I am going to get serious about diet and the gym.

I am going to spend my Labor Day holiday putting together my shopping list and planning my workouts at the gym.

I am aiming to get all the groceries I need to kick things off for $100 or less.  I want to try and prove that I can eat well and not break the bank.

I'll post my grocery list when I have it and my work out plan.

Rite Aid Deals and match ups 9 4

I have been working out the deals I can find based on the coupons I have and the flier from Rite Aid for Sept 4 - 10. 

I will try and work out the least expensive way to earn the +UP Rewards as well and other coupon and sale combos.

The front page of the flier
The most appealing thing for me on here is the $10 +UP for buying $30 of Garnier.
The items are going to be BOGO 1/2 off so that will figure into the savings too
I have 6 coupons for $1.00 off Garnier shampoo (RP 8/28), conditioner and treatment.
If the full price is $3.99 each for shampoo and conditioner
I buy 6 at the BOGO deal that's $17.97 towards the +UP and with coupons, I only spend $11.97
I need to spend another $12.03  I have 2 coupons for the Garnier hair color (I wouldn't mind a change)
That's regularly $8.49 so two of those at the BOGO price would be $12.74 and I have the 2 coupons and a $1 Video Values so I spend $9.74
Total Spent = $21.71
I get an +UP for $10.00
That's $40.92 worth of product for $11.71, a great deal!!
If you divide it up evenly each product costs just $1.46
There are other combos to this deal as there are also Garnier styling product coupons.

Crest Optic White
This one is a bit simpler
Orignial Price is $3.99
You get a $2.00 +UP Reward
Use a $1.00 off crest toothpaste coupon from the P&G 8/28 insert and get it for $0.99. (you can do this 4 times)

Back Page

Chex Mix
I'm not sure of the price for the 6oz Chex Mix but I figure that it is around $2.50
They are BOGO Free and there is a coupon for $0.50 off 2 and a Video Value for an additional $0.50
You should be able to get 2 bags for around $1.50 that's just $0.75 each or 70% off

I will keep adding to this post so keep checking back.

This Weeks Rite Aid Shopping trip.

This week was a big one.  I had to get razors and they weren't on sale and I didn't have a coupon so this shopping trip was set to be an expensive one.  But it didn't work out that way.  Here is what I got and what I spent.

37.26 Total Paid

So it was a successful trip only $37.26 + tax out of pocket and another $21.50 in Up Rewards to spend next week.

There are no coupons in this Sundays paper and the Rite Aid flier came yesterday so I am already working out next weeks deals.  I know from a glance that I will be taking advantage of the offers on Excerderin and Crest toothpaste.  I'll post the deals as I find them.
