Yesterday, I went to RiteAid and did the diaper deal that I mentioned.    I didn’t have any of the wipes coupons so I instead just bought diapers.   I didn’t take a picture because I put them away before I got my act together and took my pictures.

Today, I asked my hubby if I could run into RiteAid since it dawned on me that the wipes are on sale $2/$5 and I have these high value coupons just sitting there.   I spent $6.38 for 9 packages of wipes that is $.71 a piece.  Not bad at all!

Used a $5/20 Adperks coupon.

I wanted to share some of the deals I grabbed at Walmart today.

  • Bic pens for FREE,
  • 2 Nivea body washes for FREE $3.97 and used the $4/1 coupon,
  • M&Ms bags for $1.67 a piece after using a B2G1 coupon from 5/2 RP, and
  • 2 Cetaphil products after using my $2 off any product IP coupons.   The Cetaphil products even came with 2 more $2 coupons exp in 2011.  The moisturizer SPF15 $8.97 – $2 = $6.97 and the SPF 50 $12.97 – $2 = $10.97.
