Oops, I did it again!!!!
Actually there is no “oops” to it! It was well calculated, perfectly executed. . and I only ticked off an entire line of people, each holding only one item in their hands – hey, I let one go ahead of me and then ten more showed up. What am I supposed to do? Wait till closing to check out? It’s a 24 hour store, for Pete’s sake.
The guy behind me was really miffed. He exhaled really loudly a couple times to let me know how ridiculous I was, then the coupons started being scanned and his facial expression went from angst to admiration. Thank you very much “I need a smoke and you’re holding me up” man.
So here is tonight’s stash:
A couple questions may immediately come to the mind of the more observant.
1. Why the hearing aid batteries?? They are usually $9 and I only paid $3. It’s fun to get these for my daddy.
2. Why all the Bic pens?? They were ALL FREE. So they are going onto the storage shelf until needed – pens DO run out, you know.
3. Who is the birthday card for?? So many August birthdays. . . Allison, MO, Honey, or my sister. It isn’t for a family member. Hmmm.
4. How good was the deal???
Glad you asked! The receipt total came to $137.44 folks!
Now, the Walgreens advertised savings came to $44.08 – that means I saved $44 just for shopping this week instead of last week or next week. NIIIICE.
Then there’s the Walgreens coupons, they saved me another $5.60.
And lastly, because I paid $1 for the Sunday paper, I saved another $50.50 – that’s a grand total of $100.18 for you folks without a calculator – – and I am going to get another $2 back in a rebate.
The other big event of the night was ticking off a lady in the paper goods section. Seems I got the last three Kleenex boxes and she was not happy. Seems she had already come-a-lookin‘ and didn’t see these three boxes on the shelf. She said a couple ugly things and stormed off to see if there were more in the back. The way I see it, “Finders keepers, losers weepers;” and “All is fair in love and Walgreens.” So, if I see her again, “I will taunt her a second time.” (name that film?)
Enough. I’m going to go google fun craft ideas that use construction paper. . .
