Walgreens ----- saved 79%

I wasn't planning to go to Walgreens this week. I've been doing really well at Walgreens lately, so I didn't think we needed much. Wrong! Good thing I had about $17.50 Register Rewards left.

Trip summary:
I bought Claritin D, 2 boxes Waldryl, lipgloss, valentine tumblers, 4 boxes Excedrin, Goody headbands, Spongebob calendar, 1 2 liter diet 7UP, and 6 2 liters of Canada Dry. I did 6 transactions.

Total before savings and coupons: $69.00
Total out of pocket: $14.25
saved 79% ---- I have $10 RR to use later. The RR deals on the headbands and Excedrin and the FREE 2liter diet 7UP deal run through this Saturday.

Food Lion ---- saved 40%

Food Lion is having a great deal on ground beef this week. I was very excited, so I made sure to go. See this post for info on the sale and a link to a meat coupon.

Trip summary:
I bought 1 gallon of milk ($5!), 9 lbs of ground beef, 10 lbs of chicken quarters, 1 quart chocolate milk, and 5 lbs of potatoes.

Total before savings and coupons: $37.72
Total out of pocket: $22.65
saved 40% ---- I'm very happy with these savings. It is very hard to save on meat usually. So, even if I spend quite a bit on meat this month, I will see a savings in the future when the price goes back up.

Bi-lo ---- saved 52%

Went to Bi-lo Wednesday to take advantage of the senior discount and use the rest of my Baked Lay coupons.

Trip summary:
I bought 10 bags of Baked Lays.

Total before savings and coupons: $38.60
Total out of pocket: $18.48
saved 52%

Target --- FREE storytelling on Saturday!

Tomorrow from 9 to 11am, all Target stores will be having a FREE Dr. Seuss Story Time. There will be food, games, and giveaways too. Please contact your local Target for more details.

Victoria's Secret Rewards Cards

Victoria's Secrets Rewards Cards are coming back on March 2. These will be in store, catalog, and online.

I love these cards. Basically, every time you make a purchase, you will get a card. I've even gotten a card when getting something for free with coupon. The card is usually worth at least $10 and up to $500. You have to wait a little while after getting the card to find out how much it is worth. I'm sure a lot of people end up forgetting about them. That's sad, because these cards are like free money! See the announcement here.

Clearance at Food Lion

I stopped over at Food Lion this afternoon to get some meat. 73% Lean Ground Beef is only $1.37/lb this week! My stockup price is anything below $1.99/lb, so I was pretty excited. Plus, Food Lion has a coupon available for $1 off a $5 meat purchase if you subscribe to their email newsletter!

Now, while I was in there I noticed a lot of clearance stickers. They are orange and rectangular and fairly easy to spot. Sometimes they will cover the original barcode with the clearance sticker if you don't see one on the front of an item. Food Lion is marking down a lot of items right now. I found meat and milk on clearance, that doesn't happen often. The lactose free milk, which is usually very pricey, was only about $1.50 for a half gallon. I was even able to get 10 pounds of chicken for only $3.79.

When you go to your local Food Lion, there should be signs up talking about the markdowns. If you don't see any, please speak to a manager or employee. They may be able to help you snag a great deal!

**See this page on SouthernSavers to print the coupon if you are not a current Food Lion email subscriber**

Mail Call! Excedrin, Kraft, Office Depot, and Bealls Outlet

Today in the mail, I got a coupon for a FREE box of Excedrin! See my earlier post here to get your own. If you get the $2 coupon, use it this week at Walgreens on Excedrin Menstrual 20 ct for a $1.50 moneymaker.

I also got a letter from Kraft First Taste. They sent me a coupon for a FREE pack of Double Stuf Oreo Cakesters and a $1 off coupon for the same. Kraft First Taste is great for getting early information on new products and giving feedback to Kraft. Also, sometimes you get free stuff! Sign up here to join Kraft First Taste.

I got a little booklet from Office Depot today too. It has 3 coupons: $25 off a HP laserjet printer, $10 off $50, and $15 off $75. These coupons are timely, because right now Office Depot has some items buy 2, get 1 free.

Got a mailer from Bealls Outlet. Our Goody's closed and this is the store that took its place. Their grand opening is this week, so they sent me a $10 off $40 coupon. They also let me know that they will be giving out FREE $5 gift cards to the first 300 customers on Friday and Saturday. I've never been to this store before, but maybe I'll go check it out.
