My Shopping Trip

by GettingFreedom on September 12, 2008

I’m getting more brave with Walgreen’s, and doing more transactions. I must say, I seriously love my Walgreen’s! The cashiers are A.W.E.S.O.M.E. Super friendly, and don’t care how many coupons you have, period. They all seem to like to see the savings just as much as I do! Gotta love ‘em.

So, today I did 3 seperate transactions, and I attempted to teach 2 of my friends the “whole couponing thing”. All of this in like 45 minutes because I had somewhere to be. Wow.

I just knew I would jack everything up…..everything woulda been just great, had Walgreen’s had everything I needed to do my deals. This changed some things, but I still think that everything turned out okay. I ended up finding some more Chex Mix coupons, some from my coupon bar, and others in my stash that I hadn’t filed yet. Walgreen’s was out of the ones I wanted, so I made Walmart price match.

Here is the breakdown:
