Yes, I went to Walgreens on Earth Day....

I just could not pass up the 15% discount on items that I planned to buy this week anyway. I went right after my workout and was happy that everything on my list was in stock, and even found some Ritz chips on clearance for $.90/bag. Hubby loves these, but we don't buy them at regular price. LOL! He will be happy when he gets back! He will also be happy about the Pringles and lavender Johnsons Softlotion! (yes, the lotion is for him. LOL!)

I took my stuff to the cosmetics counter and handed the beauty advisor my coupon first. I had checked up front for the tote up front and there were none, so I told the beauty advisor that I would need a raincheck for the tote. She said, "I don't think we are giving rainchecks. We are just giving the discount. " I said, very nicely, "I think you ARE giving rainchecks, since it is an advertised item." I was ready to have her call a manager...they all know me....when she looked down and found a pile of bags behind the counter. LOL! She said, "Now where did THOSE come from?" and laughed.

So I got everything I went for for $12.20 and saved $17.81. I would have paid a lot less, but forgot to use the $9 in RRs that I had in my binder WITH ME. LOL! I got another $3 RR, so now have $12 to spend. Not my biggest trip, or savings, but it was all I wanted this week.

It was a great day! Of course, the next day I thought of some other things I should have bought to get the discount, but oh well.

Great deals -- that lavender lotion sounds lovely!

Thanks, Together We Save! Got it.

Jules, the lavender lotion is great! I got some free when it first came out and hubby fell in love with it. He is diabetic, so is careful to lotion his feet every night. He said we would buy this even at FULL price! I said no way....and try to stock up when I find good deals on it.

Hi! I am new to your blog...I found it via SonyaAnn's blog. I found your blog very enjoyable and added you to my favorite's. I agree with Jules. That lavender lotion sounds heavenly. I love all things lavender. I have 2 plants on the side of my driveway, and in the summer, the smell is divine! Good Job on stocking up for hubby! :)
