Stocking Up With Savvy Coupon Lady: Walgreens Show & Tell

by Kimberly on December 8, 2011

I had a great trip to Walgreens last night, but I am not going to make it to CVS this week. We have had such a busy week, and I just don’t have it in me to go shopping there this week. (Do any of you ever feel that way, or is it just me?! teeheehee) I did have my husband run out Monday night to grab 2 cases of the water at CVS that are on Sale $2.88 each. (You’ll see that on my weekly totals). I did great on my trip tonight. They were out of several items I had planned on getting, so I didn’t get quite as much as planned.

Below is a list of everything I bought, the coupons I used, the order I did my transactions in and my total Spent and saved.

NOTE: The items purchased in this trip coincide with the 12/4/11-12/10/11 weekly Ad.
