Not too bad! I could have significantly lowered my out of pocket at Walgreens, but I had my kids with me and made a mistake on my transaction order. I should have bought the Vaseline first, and then I could have used the $2 RR  I earned from that to purchase the rest, lowering my OOP by $2. And I got to Walgreens too late in the week to take advantage of all the free Dove deals (the shelves were empty by the time I got there), but I got a raincheck and I'll try again next week. All in all, not a ton of stuff this week, but it was all essentially free, so I'm thankful!

How'd you do this week? Any great deals you want to share?


  1. Kroger paid me $1.xx for 25 cans of Pillsbury (cinnamon rolls, crescent, and bisquits) :).... they are good until May AND you can pop the whole can in the freezer for even longer! :)
