Rite Aid

First of all, this week I received (2) SCR checks for $21.99 each (I know, I've been lax in my SCR shopping). Anyway, since I had been in the habit of only buying profit-after-rebate items, and wasn't counting my totals last year anyhow, this is like "free money", and I'm using one of the checks for this week's shopping (and the other for next week).

I still haven't gotten back into the swing of Rebate shopping yet, and today I went looking, again, for overage to buy stuff I needed like milk and bread.

I did get some free-after-coupon Tums, on sale for .99 this week, and Bayer, on sale for $1.99 this week. The Tums was a $1.00 IP MQ, and the Bayer a $2.00 VV q.

At the first Rite Aid I was able to find (2) boxes of Benevia for the BOGO sale deal, and (2) Nature Bounty Vitamins also on BOGO sale.
With my overage I bought a 12-pack of Coors, gallon of milk, and 5 bottles of Powerade.

At the next Rite Aid there was only one box of Benevia, so I had to get extra boxes of the Bayer to bring my total up to $20.00 so I could use the $5/$20 coupon. I probably wouldn't have tried using so many of the Bayer VV coupons at the same time at another Rite Aid, but I knew this store - or at least this cashier - is coupon-friendly.
With my overage there I bought more milk, bread, and some clearance Christmas items.

I had been resisting buying Christmas items because even at 90% off, I just don't need anymore stuff. I've been working on trying to get rid of alot of stuff out of my house.
But I had been looking at the little ceramic Nativity; it looks kinda like it was carved out of an apple, sortof. Anyway it's really pretty, and for .99 I couldn't pass it up again. I also got the flameless candle, which was .89, and will look nice on my table or buffet or mantle. Then I grabbed a couple rolls of .19 wrapping paper, to have for next year.
