Couponing Finds Weeks 3 & 4

Week 3
Buy for Less: Blue Bell Ice Cream Reg. 4.99 on sale 2 for $7.00. I used 2 $1.00 off coupons so I scored 2 for $2.50 each, and since B4L is not like Homeland and you don't get the unit price no matter what quantity you buy, I paid $3.99 for the 3rd one with my $1.00 off coupon. : / (Lesson learned!) Lays were on sale for $1.88. Peaches were $0.99 a lb., and the dressing was on sale for $0.99 with my $1.00 off coupon so it was FREE!!
CVS $10.00 gas card with the purchase of $30.00 worth of select products: Doritos and Tostitos were on sale 2 for $5.00, Palmalive dish soap was on sale for $0.88, Gatorade was on sale 2 for $1.99, Edy's Ice Cream was on sale B1G1 Free with a reg. price of 5.99, and I had a $1.00 off coupon for the "green" bag tag so it was free. I get a $1.00 extra care buck every 4th time I use the tag. Last, I received a $10.00 Shell gift card for FREE!
Walgreens: Complete was on sale (or regularly price, not sure, can't find my receipt) $7.99 and I received $8.00 register rewards so it was FREE!!
Walgreens: 8 ct. pop tarts were on sale for $1.99 each and I had a $1.50 off coupon on 3 so these were $1.50 each.
Items not pictured: I puchased chinet plates for $0.50 and a small dial lotion for $0.09! I also purchased 2 bags of Lays for $2.00 each so we are set on Lays for a while.
Week 4
Homeland had a great sale this week! The cereal and pop tarts were on sale $5.00 off when you purchase 5. The Crunchy cereal and Special K were $0.99 each with my doubled $1.00 off coupon, and the Frosted Mini Wheats were $1.99 because I did not have a coupon. The 12 ct pop tarts were $1.49 each. The pilsbury muffin mix was $0.49 with my doubled $0.35. The Jiff was $0.99 with my doubled $0.50 coupon. The smuckers were $0.69 each with my doubled $0.50 and $1.00 coupon. The biscuits were on sale 2 for $0.88. Lastly, my 3 bottles on KC Masterpiece were FREE with my $1.00 off coupons no doubling necessary!!
Not pictured: I made a second trip to Homeland to purchase another 5 boxes of 12 ct pop tarts for $1.50 each, which is a really good price. Now Josh has a 4 month supply!
Walgreens: Gillette was on sale this week. When I puchased $30, I received $10.00 in register rewards. I used 2 B1G1 free coupons on the body washes, and 1 B1G1 free coupon on the deoderant. I also used a $4.00 off coupon on the razor which comes with 2 blades (a pleasant surprise!) and received $5.00 in register rewards for the razor. So, I got the razor for $0.89 and the body wash and deoderant for $0.91 each.
Also at Walgreens: 1 Sobe Lifewater was $0.99, and I received a $0.99 register reward so it was FREE! The Tide was on sale for $3.99 each. I used 3 $3.00 off coupons and received $3.00 in register rewards for spending $10.00 so these were FREE too!! Then, I purchased an additional Sobe Lifewater for $0.99 and a LaffyTaffy for $0.15 so that I could use the $5.00 register reward from the Gillette transaction.
Homeland: I picked up the wrong Knorr pasta. Only a few of them were on sale, and the manager did not do my return correctly so I paid $0.80 each, but they should have been $0.29. The Blue bunny was on sale for $2.99 and I used a $1.00 0ff coupon that doubled so I scored it for $0.99!
CVS: Crest Pro Health was on sale for $4.50 each. I used 2 $2.00 off coupons and received $5.00 in extra care bucks so both of these were FREE!! The ban was on sale for $2.99. I used a $0.75 coupon and received $2.00 in ECB. So it cost me $0.24! The 8 ct. Excedrine was on sale for $0.99 each and I received $1.98 in ECBs so these were FREE as well! Lastly, the toothpaste was on sale for $2.79. I used a $1.00 off coupon and received $2.00 in ECBs so this one was actually a $0.21 money maker!
Note: In looking back, I should have asked to do two transactions and purchased the Crest pro health first and then used the ECBs from it to purchase the rest. It was early...
Target: I found this file organizer on clearance for $3.38. I am going to file my extra inserts in it. :) The tank top was on sale for $7.00, and I had a $3.00 off coupon so it cost me $4.00. The nail polish is the same deal from my last post so it cost $0.04.
All prices this week are before tax. Time for bed. I'm going to skip the proof reading this week. Hope it all makes sense. :)
