End of Last Week & Sunday at Rite-Aid......and a little Grocery Store Shopping Too

While I didn't have any +Ups left expiring on Saturday, I still made another stop at Rite-Aid last week.

 I used some rainchecks, which combined with Qs made the toothpaste, toothbrushes and motrin pm free, and the coffee dirt cheap. The shampoo was also free after Qs, sale price and +Ups.  The overage on the Qs for the motrin pm brought my OOP on the coffee and trash bags down to $7.89.  I used $7 in +Ups and put the .89¢ on my free gift card.  I earned $3 in +Ups back($2 for the Vive Pro 'Poo, $1 for 1 of the Glad trash bags).  Value of products purchased was $77.55.

Then on Sunday I did the Clean Home Zone Deal--Receive $10 +Ups WYB $30 of select household products.
I don't have a photo but imagine a picture of 4 12-roll packs of Scott toilet tissue.
4 x Scott TP on sale $7.99=$31.96
I used 4 x $1/1 12-roll pack IPQs and 4 x $1/1 AdPerk/VV Scott TP IPQs, for a total of $8 off my purchase.
I also bought a Sunday paper for $1, for a total of $24.96.
I used #1 son's Gift of Savings Cert. which knocked off $20 from the total.
Then I used $3.99 in +Ups, for a grand total OOP of $.97, which I put on my gift card.
I received $10 in +Up Rewards back.

I then went to Weis markets to check on the meat markdowns and to stock up on coffee filters for Hubs that are on sale this week for $1.
I ended up spending $28.45 OOP there on 6 boxes of filters, 4 yogurts on sale for .50¢ each, a gallon of 2% milk, a half a chicken marked down to $1.54 and 9lbs. of ground beef marked down to $1.67 lb.
No coupons used and a savings of only 38%.

We are well past the halfway point for April and I am under $95 spent on food/toiletries so far this month.  I may spend another $30 or so before the week is over but we are well under our budgeted $250 amount for the month.

I have $23.98 in +Ups expiring this coming Saturday so I will be making another trip back to Rite-Aid this week.  Not sure what else I'll be getting this week.
What is everyone else getting at Rite-Aid this week?  Any other good deals I am not seeing yet?  Let me know! 8-)

  1. Gah, still no clue what I'm going to get at RA - I seriously feel like I'm just paralyzed about it and I don't even know why. That stupid $20 GOS cert has become almost a threat instead of a free $20 to spend on anything I want. What if I make a mistake?!? That seems to be my mantra these days - don't screw it up because you can't afford to. :P

    But I love reading about your trips, so I can shop vicariously :)

  2. "I don't have a photo but imagine a picture of 4 12-roll packs of Scott toilet tissue."-When I daydream it usually isn't about TP. That said, I need to stock up on that and paper towels. Wish you were here to shop for me. It looks like I'm going to have to spend a few bucks. It kills me!

  3. I know SonyaAnn says she doesn't usually daydream about toilet paper... but I do.
    I just went shopping yesterday and thought of you the whole time! Come move next door.

  4. Pretty--I'd stock up on TP with that GS cert. But then again, I seem to have a TP

    SonyaAnn--I don't know if I even want to ask what you daydream about!lol
    OTOH, having to spend money on paper towels kills me....hate spending $ on something you throw out, right?
