Saving My Wilder Way - Week of July 15 Planned Shopping Trip

Well, I have been all around the world and back it seems over the last few days and I did not get the chance to actually PLAN a shopping trip for this week yet!

I did run to Walgreen's and CVS late last night and scored a few good deals though so I thought I would share those with you and when I get a chance I will come back and add what I plan to buy for the rest of the week!


The coupon machine at CVS was good to me last night!  When I scanned my card a got a ton of new coupons for it.  The best one was for a free bottle of Complete (12 oz) or RevitaLens (10 oz).  There are two contact users in our household and so free saline is always great. I am not sure what I did to deserve this but I have been taught not to look a gift horse in the mouth!

So I purchased:
1 12 oz bottle Complete Solution            $  9.99
1 Nature Made Vitamin D3 2000iu         $ 13.49
1 Nature Made Vitamin D3 1000iu         $  7.99
1 Unreal Peanut Butter Cup                    $  0.75

Coupons Used:
2 Nature Made Printables for                                   $1.00 each
1 CVS Coupon for Complete or RevitaLens            $9.99
1 CVS Coupon for NatureMade printed earlier        $2.00
1 CVS $4 off $20 of NatureMade printed earlier     $4.00
1 CVS $4 off $20 or More printed on trip                $4.00
1 CVS Beauty Club Reward                                    $5.00

I paid $5.31 our of pocket and received back .75 ECB for the Unreal bar and 4 ECB  for the Nature Made!    Not too bad for a spur of the moment trip.

There is a coupon for the RevitaLens that is available as a printable but I am not sure that CVS would let you use it with the free coupon printed at the machine.  I didn't have it with me (but you can get it here) at the time so I couldn't try it.  If you do, let me know how it works for you. 


At Walgreen's I had a $4.00 RR reward that was expiring which prompted my whole trip "to town" in the first place.

I purchased:

1 Listerine Ultra Clean Arctic Mint 16 oz (500ml)     $4.99
1 Ozarka Water 24 count                                         $3.49

Coupons used:
1 $4.00 Register Reward from previous trip             $4.00
1 Listerine Whitening Rinse Product RP 04/29/12    $1.00

I paid $3.48 out of pocket and received 4 RR for the Listerine and 1 RR for the Water.   I also received an additional 1 RR for the water but I understand that this has been corrected and is only printing one now.

Hope you find something that you might need this week!

Glade Closeout at Target

Glade Closeout at Target!

All my kiddo's have been away doing summer stuff this week and I have discovered two things.  I have a lot less laundry when they are gone and I need a lot less food in my house!  

Despite this, I headed to Kroger and Target today to pick up a few things and while I was out I discovered Glade products are on close out at Target. I hear Walmart also has some on clearance.

There are many printable coupons available for Glade products right now as well!

Click here and you will have all of them at your fingertips for your next trip!

Update on Shopping Trip for July 1 - Unexpected Nivea deal!

Today was a good day!

I was able to get everything I set out to purchase and then had some unexpected surprises as well!

From CVS I purchased:

2 Pantene @ 2/$6.50
1 Tide @ 5.97
1 Olay Regenerist @ $18.99  Don't forget to print your new rebate form here for Olay if you purchase it!
2 Oral-B Power Toothbrushes @ $4.99 each
1 Nice and Easy Hair Color Foam @ $7.99
1 Tom of Maine Deodorant @ $3.19 (used a rain-check from a couple of weeks ago)
1 Cortaid Maximum Strength Itch Cream @ $5.79
6 Diet Coke @ .79 each

Total before coupons = 58.16

$3.00 off 2/Pantene
$1.00 off Tide
$3.00 off Olay Regenerist

$5.00 off 2/Oral B Power Toothbrushes
$3.00 off Nice and Easy Foam
$2.50 off Toms of Maine
$5.79 (FREE) Cortaid printed out from the CVS Red Machine TODAY (A nice surprise!)
$1.50 my quarterly EB reward
$4.00 EB from previous trip

My out of pocket was $36.83 much more than I usually pay out of pocket.

I got back one $10.00 gas card, $1.00 EB from the Tom's of Maine, $2.00 from the toothbrushes, and $2.00 from the Nice & Easy foam.

I ended up back at CVS (had to rent a movie for my youngest at RedBox).
On that trip I purchased 4 of the Nivea Tins at 99 cents a piece.  I used 4 EB from earlier and no oop.  Received $8.00 in EB back.  I liked that little money maker!  There were still a few tins left, but they were thinning out!

At the end of the day I have 9 EB left to use later and a of course the $10 gas card.  I saved 59.53...
All in all a good trip!



From Walgreens I purchased:

3 Dr. Pepper 2 liter @ .88 each
2 Lady Mitchum @ 2/$6.00
6 Dentyne Ice Gum at 3/$2.00
Total before coupons = $12.64

3 B1G1 Dentyne (the register took off .96 for each) -  Expired Printable
2 $1.00 off Mitchum Printable 
1 $1.00 RR from previous trip

My out of pocket (oop) was 6.99 with tax and I received $4.00 RR to use for my next trip.  Total savings at Walgreens was $14.53.

How was your shopping today?  Did you get any surprise deals?

Hot New Printables Available

There are always new, good coupons that come out the first of the month and this month is no exception!  Don't miss out because the best usually go fast!

Below are a few I will be printing out for myself.

During the summer we grill a bunch!  The kiddos got my hubby a new grill for Father's Day and he has been making good use of it!  We will for sure be using plenty of propane over the summer so the AmeriGas Cylinder exchange is a must!  Oh and if we are going to be outside grilling, might as well take care of those pesky weeds while we are at it!

 There are also a few B1G1 deals that I usually print out to keep on hand to match with a sale that may come along.

And really, who can't use more hand soap!

Click here to select your own printables and remember you can usually print two of each!

Let me know what your favorites are this month!

Saving My Wilder Way Week of July 1 Planned Shopping Trip

I will be starting a new weekly post on Saturdays with my planned shopping trip for Walgreens and CVS.  Hopefully this will help you plan as well!


  • Mitchum or Lady Mitchum Deodorant 1.5-2.7 oz get $4 RR wyb 2/$6
    • $1 Mitchum, Regular or for Women, excludes trial or multipacks  06/24/2012 SS  (exp 07/29/2012)

 Use two $1.00 coupons, pay $4 oop and receive $4 RR.....pretty much free if you shop regularly at Walgreen's and will use the RR toward purchases for next week.

If you did not get the Mitchum coupon in your inserts you can print two by clicking the link or picture above.  It states "Available at Walmart" but can be used anywhere.


  • Olay Regenerist or Total Effects Tone (excludes kits and specialty treatments) $18.99 
    • $3 Olay ProX or Regenerist facial moisturizer or facial cleanser excludes brush head refills (exp 07/31/12) 07/01/12 p&g 
    • $2 Olay Total Effects facial moisturizer (exp 07/31/12) 07/01/12 p&g
  • Tide or Gain liquid 19-32 loads $5.97
    • $1 Tide detergent excludes PODS (exp 07/31/12) 07/01/12 p&g  
  • 2 Pantene Shampoo or Conditioner 12.6 oz, or Stylers 5.7-11.5 oz $6.50
    • $3 off 2 Pantene (exp 07/31/2012) 06/24/2012 SS
    • $1 off 2 Pantene products (exp 07/31/12) 07/01/12 p&g
All three items above go toward the buy $30.00 and receive a 10 gas card and the Olay will most likely also apply toward the new Olay Rebate beginning 07/01.
  • 2 liter Coke and Diet Coke 79¢ each (limit 6 with card)  
  • 24 Pack Water $2.44 (limit 3)
This a lot more than I usually spend out of pocket at CVS.  I probably would not normally buy the Olay right now, as I am not out, except it does apply to both the gas card and the rebate.  The price on the Coke is  great and my hubby and my dad drink Diet Coke nonstop, so I always stock up on it when I find it at these prices.  

Please share what you are planning for this week!

Have you tried out JCPenney's new Best Price Sales?

JCPenney has undergone some major changes recently.  They are taking a whole new approach to how they offer sale merchandise and I think I like it.  I wasn't too sure at first.  I liked the $10.00 off of $10.00 coupons that they formerly mailed out and was afraid that I would miss out on the really good deals that I had formerly been getting but I did always have a hard time making it to those door buster sales!   However, I think this new process may work out better for me (and you) in the long run!

They way it works is that they have their everyday low prices as usual all the time.  However, on the first and third Friday of the month they have what they call their Best Price Day.  On this day they mark down items in the store to the best price they are going to offer it for.  They use a blue tag over the original to indicate it is a best price.  These items are available at this price until they are gone not for a specific time period.  So if you don't make it on Friday and they had plenty of stock, then you can run in later in the week to pick up whatever item you are wanting to purchase.  If they still have the blue tag you get the "best price". 

I like it because with my schedule I was rarely able to take advantage of the door buster sales they offered in the past and would end up having to pay extra because I got there at the wrong time of the day!  :( 

Today is the third Friday so pop into your local JCPenney and try it out and let me know what you find on sale!
