Plans for CVS & Walgreens, Jan 16

I still have several days to go, but since this week was pretty slow for me at Walgreens and CVS, I'll make my plans for next week.  I might go to CVS this week to check out the clearanced makeup, if I feel like gathering all my makeup coupons.

I have $10 RR expiring next week, so I need to "roll" them with something, to get another RR that'll last another 2 weeks.
Joint Juice Glucosamine Chondroitin  is going to be on sale for $10, and you get $10 RR back.  I just printed a $1 coupon for the item at the mfr's website... so I can also get something for $1 that I need, pay with the $1 coupon and $10 RR, and get back $10 RR.
I would like to take advantage of that $1 to get 3 free boxes of Puffs, but it will only work IF Walgreens has the Puffs with Vicks included in the 2 for $3 sale.  If so, here's my 1 transaction plan:

Buy joint juice & 2 Puffs with Vicks - $13
Use $1 joint juice, $1 Vicks (Jan 16 paper), $1 Vicks (Jan 16 paper), $10 RR
Pay $0
Get back $10 RR (joint juice)

If no Puffs with Vicks in the store (and I haven't seen it recently), then I'll find something else for $1. 2 packs of Extra gum, 2 cans of Arizona tea, 2 packs of Carefree pantyliners, or whatever I fancy at the time.

Only thing I plan to get at CVS next week is a box of Kashi cereal. It is on sale for $2.99 and I have a $3 coupon ordered from a while ago.  I guess if I don't get to the clearanced makeup this week, I can see what's left next week since I don't have much else to get.


  1. Love it! Thanks so much for starting this! :)

  2. Doesn't seem like there's much of a sale this week so that gives me a chance to save this week's upcoming coupon inserts. You forgot, (or maybe I missed it) to say what websites you sign up with to get daily/weekly deal alerts.

  3. I just remember you saying that you order multiple copies of the newspaper. Why? Can you use 2 coupons to purchase 1 item??
    For instance, you have TWO $1 off coupon for a box of cereal that costs $3, can you use both coupons so you only pay $1?

  4. I like the ad previews at and the best, since you can easily navigate from page to page.

    I will make another post about why to get multiple newspapers / coupon inserts.
