Ok so for those of you who aren't convinced, here is my haul for Sunday, 3/10/13.
I spent about 20.00 out of pocket.
$5.29 Rite Aid
$2.73 Rite Aid
With that I got about $20.00 in Wellness Rewards from Rite Aid and $6.00 of ExtraBucks for CVS. I can use those rewards on whatever I want next time I got to shop there. I also spent more than planned this morning...I went back in Rite Aid for some extra product (the first transaction didn't ring right, so I was one lotion short of a ten dollar reward lol), and I did buy two eyeshadows at CVS, unplanned, and just because! Is that not worth an hour or two of your time?
I spent about an hour this morning shopping all three of those stores. They are all within 2 or three miles of my house. I don't usually spend much time getting the coupons...max an hour, and that's because I'm on Horseforum, Amazon, Craigslist etc. ;)
Another thing, we did our weekly grocery shopping for fresh goods last night, and spent about $20 bucks, including the Hamburger Helper my husband wanted.
And oh, as noted, I love love LOVE lotion...so if it looks like I get that a lot, well I go through a lot, and I'd rather not pay full price. The first transaction at Rite Aid alone was $89 dollars before they used my Wellness card and coupons!!!!
