Crazy all over the place shoppingPosted at 5:06 pm by rachel in aldi, cvs, pete's market, shopping trips, target, ultra
We’ll go backwards in time here — I made a little circle of CVS and the grocery stores this morning, and then went to Target this afternoon to see what was left on 90% clearance. (Not much!)
Stacy’s gingerbread pita chips, $.29 on 90% off Christmas clearance. Just cause I was curious!
Hormel party tray, $10.99. Used $3.00/1 Target printable and $3.00/1 manufacturer printable. (It’s like a giant Lunchable, lol.)
2 Reach floss, $1.94. Used two $.50/1 from the 1/6 Target insert (found another one!) and the $1.00/2 printable here.
Clearance ribbon, $.20.
8 Old El Paso taco shells, $9.52.
2 Old El Paso diced green chiles, $2.60. Used three $.60/3 printables on this and above.
Paid with $5.00 gift card and $11.10. Got back $5.00 gift card for Old El Paso. Net cost, $11.10. TOTALLY forgot to use my $2.00 Shopkick gift card. I told you I have a mental block about this app…
Stopped by ALDI to get blueberries. Walked out with…
3 clearance gingerbread marshmallows, $.87.
KREO Bumblebee, clearanced for $2.29. (Note this picture is taken in my car because I had to hide this; it’s for Mr. 5′s birthday.)
2 blueberries, $2.97.
The Villa Park ALDI on Roosevelt had giant trays of Christmas shortbread cookies on clearance for $.99. I was tempted, but…
5lb red potatoes, $1.68.
Cauliflower, $1.60. (I actually went to Pete’s before ALDI — then saw the $1.29 price so picked another one up there.)
Organic grape tomatoes, $1.50.
Chicken leg quarters, $2.04.
2 dozen eggs, $1.96. Used previously-available $.55/2 printable.
Fresh Express spinach and two Fresh Express salads, 3/$5.00. Used three expired $.55/1 tearpad coupons.
3 clearance Santa Cruz organic lemonade singles, $1.00.
Got $.05 off for bringing my own bag. Paid $5.91.
Ultra Foods in Lombard on Roosevelt had about a whole clearance cart of these Dole Fruit Parfaits, apple flavor only, priced 2/$1.00. There is a $.75/2 in the 1/6 SS. Enjoy.
Here, I’m pretty annoyed. Today’s paper is advertising a $5.00 rebate back on $10 J&J first aid items, including Band-Aid and Neosporin. I thought I’d printed this, but hadn’t, and it was gone by the time I got home this morning. I think it’s pretty poor form to advertise rebates in the paper (this, plus the Neosporin Healthy Essentials one that disappeared yesterday while I was writing up CVS deals) that aren’t actually available the day the paper comes out, and commented on their Facebook page here to say so.
So anyway, I bought the Neosporin and Band-Aid here with the intention of sending in for the rebate that I now won’t get — it’s not such a great deal now, but it is what it is. My store was also out of Stayfree, Finish,and more — will get rain checks when I go back for milk later this week.
Soft Scrub Total, $2.00. Used $1.00/1 printable.
4 Kleenex, $3.96. Used two $1.00/2 from the Jewel grand re-opening booklet found in store a while back.
9 Good n’ Natural bars, $9.90. Used nine FREE coupons from the 1/6 RP.
Nivea men’s energizing shave gel, $4.69.
Muppets Band-Aid, $3.29. Used $.50/1 in the 1/6 SS.
Neosporin, $6.99. Used $2.00/1 in the 1/6 SS.
Paid with $15.00 ECB and $1.03. Got back $8 ECB — $2.00 for Band-Aid/Neosporin, $5.00 for Nivea, $1.00 for fourth use of reusable bag tag. Net cost, $8.03. (Should have been $5.00 more back for rebate.)
The Villa Park CVS also had Arm & Hammer spinbrush tooth tunes and other misc. items on clearance for $1.00. There’s $1.00/1 A&H spinbrush in the 12/9 SS if you’re nearby and would like some for free.
So for the day: My net cost was $50.03. My out of pocket cost was $43.03.
