While digging through a bag of coupons (at one point, while cleaning up some stuff, I just tossed them all in a bag, promising myself to sort them later) I found a whole lot of $1.00 off Reach Floss coupons, coming up for expiration 9/30.
Walmart has Reach floss for .88 each, allowing .12 overage.
Some other stores have floss around .99, but in that case I actually have to pay a few cents tax for them, which I don't want to do. I just want to be able to use and not waste the coupons, and it not cost me anything since I'll be giving them away (I already have a lifetime supply of floss for us).
In order to not clear shelves or cause dissension, I shop different Walmart stores, or the same store on different days, only buying 10 assorted flavors at a time.
My husband had to go to the doctor in a different town yesterday morning and we were running a little early and stopped into the WM up there. I picked up 10 there, and also the .97 pack of Cascade, using the $1.00 Cascade from the 8/28 P&G.
I bought the Zebra Cakes for my kid using the overage from the floss, but after tax, I ended up spending $1.23 anyway.
Which I paid with a Gift Card I had gotten from doing a newspaper deal on the AJC awhile back.
On the way back home we stopped in the local Walmart for his prescription and I got 10 more.
At the same time, he bought a Sight for his Bow, so I let my overage count against that and save him a dollar.
While digging through the same bag of coupons, I had also found a stack of Free Redbox Rental codes I had gotten from buying Orville popcorn at Kroger some time back. At the same time I had also gotten a lot of catalina coupons with free codes and used those first, and, I guess, kinda forgot about these.
I have/had 48 of them, expiring 9/30. We've been renting 2 a day, but even so I'm still going to end up with 20 or so I probably won't be able to use, so I'm probably going to have to start giving them away.
Last night my husband pulled an all-night shift on the ambulance, so when he came home today he was pretty tired. We worked a little bit in the garden, getting it ready to plant the cabbage and collards, but then he needed a nap, so I decided to go for a drive, do a little shopping.
On the way out of town to the shopping places, I stopped in at WM to return yesterday's movies and rent two more, and while I was there, picked up 10 more floss and nothing else.
They paid me .58 cents.
