Walgreens Shopping

Before I get into all that I bought I want to publicly praise my children on their behavior at Walgreens.  They were polite, obedient and over all big helps to me.  I am so proud of them.

It really makes a big difference in a shopping trip if the children are be helpers and not hinders.  I found quite a few deals yesterday, but I did fall into a frugal shoppers worst nightmare in that I didn’t go into the store knowing exactly how much I was going to spend.  I know, I know, never go into a store unprepared, but I did and paid a price for it.  Without going into the gory details, just know I should have spent about $8 less than what I was charged.

That said let me show you what I bought.


  • 6 boxes of Kleenex tissues
  • 3 bottles Ocean Spray cranberry juice
  • 2 bottles Ocean Spray pomegranate cranberry juice
  • jumbo pack of Huggies
  • jumbo pack Pull-Ups
  • 4 boxes Jell-o
  • 2 cans evaporated milk
  • 2 cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cans Betty Crocker frosting
  • 3 Glade spray air freshener
  • 2 Walgreens coloring books (for the coupons)

All for a total of $22.45 out of pocket!!  AND…I will be sending in a $5 rebate on the Glade from here.  I was so excited till I started looking at my receipt and realized the mistakes that cost me $8.  It is a good reminder for me to be certain of how much I am spending before going to the store.
