I went to Fred's today to look for a particular home repair item. They didn't have the kind I wanted, but they had a tear pad for $2 off Purex!!!!!! So I pulled out my Kroger add and found PUrex was on sale for $1.99!!!!! Too bad that was last weeks add. So I went to Kroger just to see what they had it for this week. It was still on sale for $2.50 each!!!! So instead of getting it free I got it for .50!!! Still a great deal! So of course I told me friends about it!! The tear pad is now EMPTY!!!!! Which is good because they expire tomorrow!!! So we didn't feel bad about snagging more than one each. We snagged a total of 50 coupons AND of COURSE we shared them with friends and family, a total of six families, so that's less than 10 coupons each.

Now for the next big deal.......

Rite Aid

I have never shopped at Rite Aid, even after this coupon journey began. They just didn't seem to have that many deals. That changed this week.

I have been wanting to try hair removal cream and just have not gotten around to getting it. So I found some $2 off coupons for Veet. Figured I would hang on to them and see if anyone puts them on sale-granted I just printed them this weekend. This week Rite Aid has an "in add" coupon for $3 off Veet, PLUS you get $1 in UpRewards. So with the $2 manuf coupon, $3 store coupon and $1 upreward....makes a $6.49 bottle..... .94!! so of course I took advantage!!

They also have 12pack of coke products 3/$9, and you get a $2 upreward. So I took advantage of that as well.

So I bought one Veet (because it was the last one left) and 3 packs of coke.
total 13.??, saved $7-I used $2 in uprewards from a prev purchase, and received $3 in Uprewards on my receipt!!! So its like paying $10.

Target Savings of the Day!!

Today's total at Target $80.19
Paid $$$17.80!!!!

And I have to admit....I cheated. Target has their Huggies and Pampers diapers for 8.99 for the small packs of 23-25. If you buy 3 packs you get a $5 Target gift card. Well I had $3 off Huggies manufacturer coupons AND $3 off Huggies Target coupon-the Target coupon is for Huggies "Pure and Natural" diapers. So techinically they were not for the "Snug and Dry" that I purchased. So I paid $2.99 a pack, PLUS got a $5 Target gift card.

I also bought about 5 packs of Easter candy that was on sale, 2 Easter books and an Easter cookie making kit. Most of it was under $2 or .50

Then I bought two bags of Skittles-the small ones at the register. I had a $1 off manufacturer coupon and a $1 off Target coupon-made them free!!!

I also bought 6 Reeses peanut butter cups. I had a Target coupon B1G1, so they were about .35 each.

THEN...I found the Hall's cough drops on clearance for $1.03, which normally sell for $1.27-not a big clearance, HOWEVER, I had a (5).55 off manuf coupon, (1) .75 off AND a (8).50 off Target coupon. So they were .09 a pack!!!! Only because I was short on the manuf coupons.
