I thought you might like seeing my Rite Aid picture from yesterday.  I still can’t believe that Rite Aid paid me $2.36 to buy all this great stuff for Graceworks♥.  I won’t list out the deal for each, but the basic scenario is that all of the deoderant was on sale ranging from .82-$1.07 and I used $10.50 in coupons ranging in value from .75/1 to 1.00/1.  The shampoo was on clearance for 2.49 and I used a 2.00/1 Q.  Finally, there was a $5 SCR on 4 Speed Stick deoderants.

 

Rite-Aid Deoderant Deal February 16, 2009

Filed under: Drugstores — frugalinfranklin @ 11:03 pm

I just had one of those sublime couponing experiences.  The Rite Aid on 96/Murfreesboro in Franklin is clearing a lot of deoderant.  I was able to buy 10 deoderants with my coupon stash (and a shampoo) for $2.64.  But, it gets better because 4 of the deoderants were Speedstick, so I can rebate them and make a profit.

I promise, I didn’t buy all the deoderants!  If you live close by and have a good stash of coupons, you may want to give it a swing.

Graceworks–Get Ready to Give! February 8, 2009

Filed under: Drugstores,Giving — frugalinfranklin @ 2:54 am

There was a notice in my church’s newsletter that Graceworks is in need of the following items:

  • boxed powdered milk
  • 48oz bottles of juice
  • crackers
  • laundry detergent
  • liquid dish detergent
  • toothbrushes
  • shampoo
  • deodorant
  • Kleenex
  • disposable razors
  • shaving cream

For the next two weeks or so, when I post deal highlights, I will mark deals from the above list with this symbol♥.  What I would like to suggest is that you set aside $5 and see what you can pick up off of the list with that $5.  If you have a large budget and would like to do more, that’s fine.  Keep track of your deals.  On Feb. 22, I will post my donation and you can leave a comment, sharing yours.   If you don’t live near Franklin, participate anyway and share with your local food pantry.

This is not a chance to boast.  Just an opportunity to try giving in new ways.  Have fun!

Update:  Don’t forget that if you make a profit on a purchase you can subtract that from your total.  Example: 

  • Toothbrushes $1.20 (after all rebates and coupons)
  • Shampoo -$1.00 (after rebates and coupons)
  • Current total .20
