I’m going to start working the drugstore deals a bit harder for awhile, and get a big stockpile of freebies from Rite Aid, Walgreens and CVS.
I’m basically starting from scratch, as far as couponing goes. Most of my previous coupons have expired, except for a few that I’ve received in the mail. I bought a Sunday newspaper to get me going. I don’t have any CVS Extra Care Bucks, but I do have a few dollars on my Walgreen’s gift card.
Today, I went to Rite Aid to get a few freebies. I got:
–Listerine Smart Rinse mouthwash $2.99 and used a $1 off coupon in today’s newspaper. I’ll get $2.99 back via the store rebate, so that’ll be a net of $1.
–Citre Shine shampoo $3.99 and had a $1 coupon from today’s paper. This deal is only food for a few days. I’ll get $3.99 back, and I’ll net $1.
–Electrasol 3-in-1 powertabs were on sale for $3.99. I had a $3 coupon from the manufacturer, and there’s also a $2 rebate, so I’ll net $1.
The total sale price retail value was $10.97, plus $0.63 sales tax. After coupons, I paid $6.60 out of pocket. My rebate check will be worth $8.98, earning me those items plus an extra $2.38. Works for me!

The bad news is about $12 fell out of my pocket somewhere between my car and the store and who knows where. Most of the time, I use a debit card, and the one time I have cash, I lose $12. Ugh. Could have been worse, I guess.
I left my name and phone number with the store manager, but I doubt anyone will report it. Do you think anyone will? If you found $12, would you keep it?
I hope that if I don’t find it, it ends up in the hands of someone who needs it more than I do.
