Mommy's Money Saving Madness!: February 2011

What 2 things do you need for a perfect shopping trip?

First, a detailed shopping list, and next, you need for the store to have everything in stock!! Well, this is the tricky one…uugghh! I hate when I have to start changing my transactions on the spot, but it happens, so you just have to make do with what you got. We’ll I wasn’t able to get everything that I planned on getting, but nonetheless, I still had a pretty good shopping trip. Remember “Rain Checks” are your friend! 🙂

I went to Rite Aid, CVS, and Walgreens to get everything pictured above. I spent a total of $6.37 + tax out of pocket. I already submitted my Rite Aid receipt for the Children’s Chestal SCR, so I’ll be getting back $6.29 in cash. Just a little less than what I spent out of pocket today.Here’s how my rewards broke down:Rite Aid – UP Rewards (Started with $14.00, Ended with $14.00 & I’ve earned $66.14 toward my $100 to get a $20 Bonus Reward!)CVS – Extra Care Bucks (Started with $5.00, Ended with $6.00)Walgreens – Register Rewards (Started with $9.00, Ended with $4.00)

I have decided that it is definitely worth my time to shop Rite Aid, so starting this coming week, I am going to post the best deals with the coupon match-ups like I do for CVS and Walgreens.

So, how much did I save?

I saved just a few cents shy of $70!!!
