I blame being 300 days pregnant...
my mind gets be-jig-ity with the baby boy hormones.
So I did two shops and the first one was a fail. But I got the L'oreal Shampoo/Conditioners that I "needed" for the stockpile so it was worth it for me. Kind of. Until I messed up and spend $1.98 over what I wanted too and had to PAY for my shop. Which I hate to do, I am always trying to get out of the store and just pay tax.
Ok come to think of it I did three shops this week, but the VERY first one was just meh...I read on several msg boards that people were getting UP+'s for purchasing 2 Gillette and 2 OS Body Wash in the same transaction. Yeah nooo.
Not so much.
I guess I misunderstood or they didn't know what they were talking about. So those are going back to the store...$6 back in my pocket.
Shop #1 I am not going into
Shop #2 (sorry no pic, just use your imagination..lol)
4 L'oreal Vive Pro Shampoo/Conditioners -- $2.50 each ($2 UP+ wyb 2)
1 Scunci Hair Clippy Glittery thing for Bonnie (cuz she was such a good girl) -- $3.99
1 bag of Sour Patch Gummy Bunnies -- $1.99 (where I blew it OOP wise)
Coupons I used:
$3/15 from Survey
4 $1/1 L'oreal Vive Pro from here
Total OOP: $2.92
Earned $4 in Up+'s
8 Physicians Make Up on clearance 75% off -- $1.49-$3.73 (not what I needed at all but I wanted the peelies I had to create overage to pay for my cough drops)
26 RA Brand Cough Drops -- .50 each ($1 Up+ wyb 2)
Coupons I used:
$4/1 Physician's Formula Peelies on the front of the products!!
Subtotal: .82 cents
Total OOP: $2.61
Earned $13 in UP+'s
There was a huge bin of 75% make up and other random stuff at the random Rite Aid I shopped at today so I grabbed all the products that I thought my Mother and sister in law would use. There were more make up products there but I didn't want to clean the store out because I totally hate when people do that to me.
Buuuut I wanted to, I am not gonna lie. LOL.
I also gave a few packages of cough drops to my mom because I think she uses them as candy...lol. It seems like every time I see her I give her cough drops and yet she is always out of them.
So it wasn't a huge haul like I wanted but I am always daydreaming about getting 38943 items and only paying tax.
Plus, I added some things to the stockpile that we needed. I have not bought shampoo or conditioner in a deal shop in over a year because I got about 30 John Frieda Shampoo and Conditioners on clearance at CVS for .13 plus q's so it was a GIANT Money Maker. And we were getting down to the last few sets because we have used/donated so many over the past 12+ months.
If I can convince my Jet Pilot to drive me to another local Rite Aid on one our trips off base I may try for more clearance make up and more cough drops...I will have to make the sad face and beg but it would be worth it. I hate to drive at this late stage in my pregnancy...I feel like blimp all day anyways and then to put a steering wheel in front of me and its just a recipe for a cranky pants mama.
**After I return my Body Washes back to Rite Aid it will be like I spent just change OOP to pay for my shops, so I guess that's good. And I have also added to my UP+'s so I am always liking that. I just wish I was better at pre-planning for my shops so I don't go back 2-3 times a week.
I hate to drive.
I like to passenger seat it. Its where I am most comfortable.
Soooo....you get anything good this week at Rite Aid??
