Nice Try...

After reading all the money savvy ladies blogs I decided I would try to get in on the action. Well...... I FAILED. I tried my hand at all the coupon deals at Walgreens this week and it didn't work out to well. Although I did get some good deals it didn't turn out as I expected. I thought you could use Manufacturers coupons with the Register Rewards and I was wrong. So all I succeeded in was making the clerk frustrated and making the people behind me mad. I did have one good purchase I am happy about on childrens Tylenol. Walgreens is having a sale on Childrens Tylenol for 4.99 and if you buy 3 or more you get $5 Register Rewards. I found a $5 off 3 bottles coupon and $1 off Manufacturers coupon and when I got to the store the Easy Saver Catalog has $1.50 (which rang up 3 times) coupon on it PLUS the bottle of Tylenol had a $1.50 off coupon on the box! So in total I spent $4.02 on 3 bottles of Childrens Tylenol. But I didn't get the $5 RR with it, I guess because I used to many coupons. So kuddos to all the ladies that can walk away with paying $.20 for 15 items, I don't know how you do it.

Ehh.... I clip and save all these coupons but they always expire in my junk drawer before I remember to use them =\ ... and there always seem to be coupons for everything you don't really need anyway.. what's with that?!

I always wish that I had walgreens and CVS stores around me to try these cool deals. Sorry it didn't work out for you.

Sorry it didn't work out as good for you.
I'm not that great with coupons either. I have no idea how some can walk away with a $0.20 grocery bill.
