Bargain Hunting...

I went bargain hunting this weekend.  I'm always trying to find ways to cut our family expenses.  Most days I feel like I'm doing a good job; other days I know I fail miserably.  However, I've been frequently checking Money Saving Mom and attempting to cut even more.  So Saturday, with my notes in hand and two kids in tow, I trompted a few blocks to the nearest Walgreens and this is the outcome.

Garnier Nutriste night cream--$12.99-$12.99 rebate=$0
Colgate Total Toothpaste --$3.79-$3.79 rebate=$0
Garnier Fructis Hair Milk--$3.99-$3.99 rebate= $0
minus $5 RR
Tax=$ 1.51
made $3.49

passed on the Yes to Carrots Body Butter, but it is also $9.99-$9.99 rebate =$0

This was how Rite-Aid turned out:
Garnier Fructis Shampoo-- $2.99-$1 peelie-$2.99 rebate= made $1
Act Mouthwash--sale $5.99-$3 rebate=$2.99
Hand Lotion--$6.99--clearanced to $1.74

OOP=$4.51--not too bad, hopefully will get better with practice

so between the two, I almost broke even.  not bad!
