Jan 2, 08 Not a good day. But better than some

Happy NEW YEAR!!!

Today I went to Walgreens and Walmart. I didnt do great, but did semi decent.

I bought a fusion razor, 8.99 minus a 4.00 newspaper coupon= 4.99 and then got a 3.00 Registar Reward on it.

so that was 5.36 out of pocket. (had a gift card with out 7.00 on it from last year. )

My next transaction was a bunch of junk!

10 rolls wrapping paper @3.99 Bought for 5/$1.00.
3 Mountain Dews on sale for 3.64ea
1 Mountain Dew Voltage on sale for 3.64 and with a 3.64 coupon in the paper if you buy 3 other MT Dew products, so it was free)
I got 4 boxes of cards that the prices ranged on- that I paid
1.49 (they were 75% off)
I bought package tags on clearence for .49 (75% off)
and 5 packages of bows, on clearence for .83, .24, .83, .49and .24 (75% off)

Then I used my 3.00 register reward and spent 19.76 out of pocket.

My wags savings were: 69.71 ( I got 39.99 worth of wrapping paper for 2.00)
manufacture coupons were: 6.34 (their own register rewards, and their Free Voltage WYB3 coupon)

for a total of 76.35

Next was walmart. It wasnt as good, but walmart never is. Since I have a limited supply of places to PM it never really pans out.

I had the 4 coupons mentioned above, totaling 2.50
and they charged me 2.98 for some type of "licensephone..." I called them, they said they would take it off next time I came in. ?? They had no clue as to what it was or why I was charged...

BUt I spent 164.52 out of pocket. and saved through coupons and clearence items 124.72.

Granted I didnt NEED the clearence items. well, the dog treats I did. and the wrapping paper will be used, as will the other Christmas decorations and such, BUT all in all today

I saved 206.07

Now, I did buy the razor off my wags GC that I got for transfering a script. There was only about 7.00 left on it.
