Still Another L.O.L

You already know I love a bargain and yesterday was a great day for a good bargain.  Before I left home, I knew I was  about to enter the doors of Walgreen’s or CVS, I could feel the excitement building.  I don’t have a Spiritual application from this except I wish I had this same feeling when it is time to sit down and open my Bible.  I am going to pray about that.

Here is what I brought yesterday at Walgreen’s: Rembrandt Toothpaste, $5.99  and received a $6.00 Register Reward (same as cash but has to be used at Walgreen’s), Bayer Quick Release Crystals, $2.49 and I had a $1.00 coupon that I found on the display at the store, I got $2.50 back in RR’s (Register Rewards), Ecotrin 81mg, 45 count, $2.00 and I got back $2.00 in RR’s.  Get this, when I opened the box there was a $2.00 coupon on the inside so when I take this to the store I will make $2.00 on my Ecotrin deal.  Nivea Body Wash, $4.99, I had a $1.00 coupon and got back $5.00 so I made $1.01.  I had a lot of RR’s from last week so I paid very little out of pocket and I have all of these products and  lots of RR’s to spend.  I must warn you don’t use the RR’s on the same item, you won’t get another.  In other words, don’t use your $2.00 from Ecotrin to buy another Ecotrin, use it to buy Bayers.  I must also add, always be honest, if the  advertisement  says one per person that means you can only buy one–that’s it only one. 

I have given many items away either to friends or to The Good Neighbor Center or to Bags of Love.  This is a fun hobby that helps me and helps others too.

Another L O L

Okay, I just love the excitement of spending very little money and getting fun things at the store.

Today I went to Walgreen’s and bought some Shimmering Lip Gloss paying $1.99 plus tax, I handed over a Register Reward I had gotten by purchasing a package of Scunci hair bands, I only paid a few cents for the tax.  Then I noticed the Colgate MaxWhite Toothbrushes for $3.49, I had a .75 coupon and $2.00 Register Reward from the lip gloss and got back $3.49 in Register Rewards, I actually made a little on this transaction, and to think I use to pay full price for a toothbrush.

My day consisted of teaching piano lessons, praying for my family and a special friend and picking up a few bargains.  I have yet to open my Bible and that makes me remember studying my Bible is best done the very first thing in the morning.
