Fru-Gal Column September 30

Let’s go on a shopping journey. Last Sunday’s paper had three sets of coupons this would be the time that you would want to buy two papers. Get $20.00 and start shopping with me! Let’s begin our travels by visiting your local Walgreens. First stop is the cleaning aisle with the purchase of two bottles of Tilex Mold and Mildew cleaner on sale two for $5. Use two $1.00 coupons from making the deal two for $3.00 getting $2 back in register rewards. Move on to the Cough and Cold aisle to purchase Hyland’s Cold n’ Cough for kids on sale for $4.99. Print out $1.50 coupon at Use your previous $2.00 register reward making this deal $1.49 but you will receive a register reward for $4.99.

Next buy two Clorex 35 pack Wipes for $5.

Plus purchase Emergen-C Supplement for $3.49 use your $5.00 register reward final price will be $1.49 getting back $5.49 in register rewards. I personally would buy two packages of Charmin 6 double rolls for $2.99 each using my previous register rewards making the deal 19 cents.

Here is the recap for your Walgreens shopping trip. You do need to do these deals in separate transactions or do one deal and save all of your register rewards for next week sales. This is what I bought, two bottles of Tilex Mold and Mildew Cleaner, two bottles of Clorox Wipes, Hyland’s Cold ‘n Cough medicine for kids, Emergen-C Vitamin C supplements, Vaseline Sheer Infusion Lotion and two packages of Charmin 6 double roll toilet tissue. What did I spend (I am not including the tax), final cost $7.17. There are plenty more great deals that I didn’t even mention so look through your weekly sales flyer.
