I have made the decision to ban Walgreens from my weekly shopping trips. They had some great deals but have just become to restrictive and accusatory with their coupons policy that I am going to save myself the hassle and focus my couponing and spending my money elsewhere.
This week I plan on shopping at CVS, Kroger, Meijer, and Target. Kroger is my most extensive shopping trip of the week. The deals are pretty light in some of the stores. I do need to get out and find school supplies.
At Kroger this week I have the following items on my list: Sobe water, Progresso Soup, Welch's jelly, Ziploc bags, Sunny D, Quaker rice cakes, Gardettos snacks, and CoCo Puffs.
I am only getting All detergent, a Schick razor and Huggies wipes at CVS this week. I don't think the Vitamin Water is 10 for $10 again, if it is and I can repeat the ECB deal I will likely pick more up.
Meijer has a fantastic deal on Smart Balance milk this week. I have never purchased this before but I don't think my family will notice the difference and with coupons the 1/2 gallons are free so there better not be any complaining! I will be picking up 2 1/2 gallons of milk, Campbell's Healthy Request (also free), Campbell's tomato soup (Liam's go to for lunch), Lipton tea, Ragu spaghetti sauce, Revlon products, and Skippy peanut butter.
Lastly, I will be stopping at Target to pick up just a few items. My hubby needs a 1 gallon cooler/jug for iced tea at work so I will be picking one of those up - without a coupon!! Oh the shame! It isn't that bad since I should be getting the other two items for free and like to purchase something for possible overage and less suspicion of thievery. I will be picking up Scotch Tape, the rolls are advertised at $0.50 each and I have coupons for $1.50 off of 3 so they should be free. I bought tape the other week and kept thinking, why am I getting this? I then realized if it is cheap now is the time to stock up for the upcoming holiday season and with 3 kids we have lots of Christmas wrapping along with other gifting events throughout the year. I am also going to pick up Post It Notes. They are supposed to be $1 and I have coupons for $1 off so that should make them free!
Here is the $1 off 1 Post it Notes coupon $1/1 Post it Note and here is the Scotch tape $1.50 off 3 coupon $1.50/3 Scotch Tape. Both of these are pdf documents so there shouldn't be a limit on how many you can print.
UPDATE: I went to Target yesterday and was unable to find $1 super sticky post it notes or the $0.50 scotch tape. I did end up getting Crystal Light drink packets for free - they were $1.97 each and I had 3 $2 off coupons.
