I LOVE Walgreens!




Sunday, DBF and I went to two Walgreens and got 10 blood glucose meters. How much did I spend? ABSOLUTELY ZERO!!! I had coupons for up to $30 off and WAGS had them for $14.99 so they were free. Plus, Kentucky does not charge tax on them! All it cost was the $18.00 that I spent on 24 coupons. The best part?? Every time I bought a meter (seperate transactions) I got a $5 Register Reward. I made $50 in Register Rewards! I used some of it already for Diet Cokes and baking soda. The rest will get spent on household items or food.

I still have 18 coupons and I didn't clear the shelves at either store, so I sent a few with DBF. He works near two WAGS and I'm 30 miles away. Hopefully, he'll get several more. I have 15 more coupons coming from centsoff.com---good thing the expiration date it 4/30 on the coupons!

Oh, some may wonder what I'm gonna do with all these meters when I don't have diabetes. A man at my church has diabetes and his wife knows a diabetes clinic. I give them to her and she takes them in. The clinic gives them to diabetics that they come in.

Thanks, Amiyrah! I've been busy with my new job and haven't had the energy to post. I've been meaning to post about my Mega Sale savings from Kroger, but never got around to it.

I went back on Thursday and found 6 more meters, plus DBF got one on Tuesday! I donated 17 meters, made 75 Register Rewards and still have 2 dozen (or so) coupons!
