Grocery this week: $57.90 (but $17.38 are for others, gifts or cooking for others) and also we have a guest coming tomorrow! (I'm really excited about that! (So actual grocery - $40.52, including fruits!) (I think I'm missing out a couple things, may have to top a $5 this week)
Drugstores. It's DIAPERS/Gillette Fusion STOCK-UP TIME! =)
Huggies/Wipes/Kotex pads RR deal (did 3 runs of these):
Buy $14 get $3 RR
So we got
Dipes (9.99) + Wipes (5.99) - $0.50 Wipes MQ, $3 RR
Gillette Fusion $8.99 - $4 MQ, $4 RR
Used $10 RR from before
Dipes (9.99) + Wipes (5.99) - $0.50 Wipes MQ, $3 RR
Dipes (9.99) + Kotex Lightdays (5) - $1 Kotex MQ + Newspapers (more great coupons!), $3 RR
I'm filing in caregivers marketplace rebate for $3 back
This is the store that really got me today. After we scan $4/20 coupon, we can't use our $10 ECB from last week. How come? The balance is a lot more than $10. It's just frustrating how these computers are so inconsistent. Are there rules about this? I don't want to waste my time next time! We had to spend a LONG time in CVS thinking through what to buy then, and thus I missed out some coupons and some deals. GRRR...
Still, we got
Gillette Fusion $9.99 - $4 MQ, $5 ECB
2 Dawn - $0.99 each - $1 off 2
floss (I need that) - $1.49
2 packs of pampers - $9.99 - $1.50 MQ each (these contribute to the last of our gifts to grow points to 100, so we can redeem a free photobook for our Christmas present
and cover girl Clean foundation - $5.49 - $1, $5.49 ECB
Cover Girl blush - $4.19 - free (BOGO coupon)
Used a $2/10 coupon and $10 ECB from before (rolled 1 $5.49 ECB)
Gillette Fusion (YES! It's Gillette Fusion day!) $9 - $4 MQ, $5 rebate (I pay $0.75 for tax)
TOTAL AT DRUGSTORES:
Spent: $55.37 (I count RR and ECB used to pay as cash and I deduct the ECB and RR I get back).
That's $55.37 for all those above, 120 pieces of size 3 dipes, 60 pieces of size 5 dipes, THREE Gillette Fusion (with catridges), 2 packs of wipes, Kotex lightdays, dishwashing liquid and others.
In perspective...If I buy the dipes, wipes, lightdays, dishwashing liquid and floss at where I would normally do (BJs or other discounted place), I'll would have $2 left to spend on the 3 Gillette Fusion and Cover Girl Make up. That's pretty cool I think.

Rimmel Foundation - $7.49 (rebatable)
Tuesday, September 23, 2008
Got this from ShaketheSalt.
Alrightee, here goes my story. Having 2 kids in the house in diapers can be confusing. I finished changing the older one (who's wearing 5) and I felt that the dipe is a bit tight. Oh my, you've grown, I thought. No. I put on the little one's dipe on him (size 3).

No pic for groceries, we were in a rush to go out to the City! yeh!
But we spent $56.37, of which we got flour (yes again, that's on a real good sale), a BIG pot roast and chicken quarters. Also, part of which we're cooking for a family whose baby just arrived. =)
At the drugstores...this is the beautiful part. Those are what we got this week (yeh, soda for my hubby! And photos from Wag that's not here)
We paid $33.8 after using $2 RR, $9.99 ECBs and $5/30 coupon and other coupons. Out of the $33.80, only $16.88 OOP cash.
AND, we got $3 ECBs back, $10 RR and $14.59 will be rebated. And $2.40 for bottle deposits. (Gotta remember to get them back)
So, after using ECBs, RR and all the "returns" and bottle deposits, we actually spent $3.81 on this loot. (I gotta find a good way to reflect the value of our spending...should I count in ECB? or RR or the ones I used?)
The good deals:
Robitussin (Yes, it's finally coming to us, not as sweet a deal, but still a money-maker!):

Herberts Fully Loaded Chocolate bars
售價: 2 for $3
Easy Saver coupon: $3 off 2
但有些Walgreens價錢沒有輸入正確, 你買兩個, 不是$3的話, 就要花一點唇舌讓Manager知道他們的誤差. 若shelf上的價錢標的是 2 for $3, 你就可以和他們商討.

This is a GREAT grocery week. Look we even have fish and kids' yogurt!
Thanks to more pasta roni for free, we only spent $29.48 this week for grocery at Stop And Shop and Chinese store (and a bag of coleslaw at CTown for $0.99, not in pic)
Then we had great deals (to me) at Walgreens and CVS. I'm just bummed that Wag ran out of their Free-After-Rebate items already. =(
Anyhows, at Walgreens we got stuff I need for $13.08 (on gift card, no cash), but $4.79 is rebatable:
-Progresso soup, 3 for $4 and I have $1.10 q for 3, so only spent $0.96 per can!
-Nail polish (fully rebatable)
CVS Spent $0.60 on money card, $7 ECB and get back $7.99 ECBs:
-Chex mix, $1 each, and $1 coupon each, so free!
-Facewash, $5.99, get back $5.99 ECB
-Act Mouthwash, $4.49, $2 ECB, and I have $1 coupon, so it cost me $1.49! wow! I love this mouthwash, it's great and no alcohol.
No cash at Drugstores this week, all on cards! =)
TOTAL SPENDING (plus Kashi deals today): $26.38 (after ECBs and earning from Target, but counting in Cards as money)

Grocery at Stop and Shop
We used $32.47 (and we are able to get back $7.58 in rebate and we got a coupon for $5 to spend next week) so in actual fact we spent...$19.89 for all the food you see!
The best deals:
1. Pasta Roni/Rice Roni was on sale for $1 each and I have $0.50 coupon which can double to $1, which means we get them all for free.
2. Spend $15 Kashi Products gave us $5 off. We used $9.25 worth of coupons, which means we only pay $0.75 for the 2 cereal, 2 oatmeal and 1 bar (that bar was so good!)
3. Kelloggs Cereal is fully rebatable, and we have $2 coupons, so it's an overage.
Deals at Wag
We used $10 off $40 coupon. Didn't get a REALLY good deal, because...
-the cashier refused to scan my $3 off coupon (it was a misprint that it expires 7/26 and everybody knows) but I can't argue with her. I'm trying to go through customer's service now.
-I forgot to givethe Wag coupon for toilet paper (not the pic) so I paid $1 more.
Still we pay $39.71 ($9 of that in gift card )and I will be rebated 43.90, so I earn $4.19. If I manage to get back my $3, it'll be an earning of $7.19. Let's see.
Deals at Rite-Aid
Got Ian's toothbrush (not in pic) and shampoo (and got the styling for free, because of coupon) and toothpaste with overage.
Total spending: $7.64
Total rebatable: $3.93
Total OOP: $1.91
Plus the other grocery I did this week (not in pic..more veg, meat, tofu, plastic wrap, recycle bags)...
We spent a total (after rebatable etc): $25.44 on household/grocery. This is a great week!
