Ok, so I am starting to try this whole coupon ting. I am not very good at matching deals to coupons I have, even though I visit websites like Wild For Wags to get ideas! But, today I went to get the ad b/c I didn't get one in the paper. I was going to pick up some goldfish that were on sale for$.99 and I had a $.50 off coupon. I walked to the food aisle and they had Cheerios on sale $2/4 and each box had a $1 coupon on it. So, I got 2 boxes of Cheerio's for $1 each. Should come in handy with the little man starting solids in the next few weeks!

So, my beef with Walgreens is mine seems to run out of a lot of the sale items the 1st day. Like today, they were out of the goldfish I wanted to buy. What a bummer. I will check back later this week to see if they got any in, but this is not the 1st time this has happened to me.

My other great deal today was a ream of 500 sheets of paper for $.01 from Staples. It is normally $5.99, but it was on sale for $4.99 and then a rebate of $4.98. So, I bought the limit of 2 per household! A great deal, especially because between printing coupons and Moo-Bear's Tot School printable I go through a decent amount of paper. I will go back to Walgreens later this week (when I have some money) and hopefully will score some other good deals!

  1. I have the same problem with my Walgreens running out of things. Unfortunately, it's a 30-minute drive to get there! But fortunately, there are 2 Walgreens within a mile of each other. (I don't really understand why, but it's convenient!)

    Have you asked someone who works there if they have more of what you're wanting stocked in the back? I'm a bit of a chicken about doing that, but really, what can it hurt?

    Good to know about the Staples paper! We're out. Guess where I'll be heading. :)
