Eight Dollars

That's how much all these items cost me:

I know that the peanut butter & jelly really don't fit in with the razor, shaving cream & body wash...but its part of the deal.

I walked out of Walgreens feeling as though I had robbed the place. I know that it may not look like a let me break down the prices for you.

Gillette Fusion Razor w/2 cartridges: 8.99
Gillete Fusion Shaving Cream: 1.99 (sale price)
Dove Men's Body Wash: 5.99
Smuckers Jelly: 2.00 (sale price)
JIF Peanut Butter: 2.00 (sale price)
Grand Total: 21.00

But here is what I actually paid for each of the times:
Gillette Fusion Razor w/2 cartridges: 4.99 (I had a coupon for 4 dollars off)
Gillete Fusion Shaving Cream: .99 (I had a coupon for 1 dollar off)
Dove Men's Body Wash: 4.74 (I had a coupon for 1.25 off)
Smuckers Jelly: 1.50 (I had a coupon for .50 off)
JIF Peanut Butter: 1.50 (I had a coupon for .50 off)
Total: 13.72
Plus subtract 6 dollars from the total in Register Rewards to get a Grand Total of: 8.72

PLUS I got 4 dollars back in Register Rewards for buying the Razor (although technically I paid nothing for it).

Notice that I paid a few cents less for all 5 items than what the original price of the Gillette Fusion Razor cost alone.

Seriously, how does that even happen?

i've really tried to be a coupon person, but it never seems to stick. i cut them, organize them, everything. it always ends up at the bottom of a drawer somewhere. i swear i'd be a millionaire if only for coupons!

Katherine said...

Oh, I want to be a coupon person. I'm just not. I lack coupon dedication.

Brandy said...

THat is a steal! If I had gone to Walgreens I would have wasted a ton on nail polish and lipstick.

Thankfully, Walgreens is a little out of my way so i don't get there much - They just have so much cool stuff!!

Lisa Marie said...

Wow this really inspires me to do better coupon clipping!

Salt said...

I need to start using coupons more often. I always try to save them and then they just end up in my wallet and all over my purse and everywhere else. That was a huge amount of savings you had though...I feel inspired.

Menopausal New Mom said...

Wow!! Well done!! I used to use coupons, that's actually the way I raised the money to buy all that crystal in my photo today on my blog!

When I used a coupon, the money went into a jar until I had enough to buy a piece.

We can't get coupons like that in Canada anymore but I know the USA is big on them.

Congratulations, Good Job!

I LOVE days like that!

qandlequeen said...

I married a coupon person. He called me the other day triumphant that he had to leave the register to go get MORE stuff because the coupons left him with a negative balance.

Mama Michie (aka Michaela) said...

That is a steal! I wish I could be that good with sales and coupons.

Kato said...

Woah! You should have gone on a shopping spree that day! Your shopping universe was aligned!

Shandal said...

Now that is a heck of a deal! I can't get myself to remember my coupons that I cut out when I go shopping! LOL
