Andrea would be proud

My dear friend Andrea has been the queen of coupons and good deals lately.  She's been trying to help me learn the ins and outs, and even though this one was a no-brainer, I think she'd be proud.

$56.57 - Total Spent for 13 items
$53.37 - Amount of Rebate Check
$3.20 - Total spent after rebate (just the tax)
94% Savings!!  

What did I get?  Well, usually these really good deals are on junk, or products I would never use, but today I got:

*Sambucol Immune Support/Cold & Flu Relief (Homeopathic)
*Bee MD Organic Honey Throat Drops
*Sucrets Ice
*Hyland's Sniffles & Sneezes 4 Kids (Homeopathic)
*Hyland's Cough Syrup 4 Kids (Homeopathic)
*Sucrets Herbal
*Softlips Pure (95% Organic, 100% Natural)
*LypSyl LypMoisturizer (Organic Shea Butter)
*LypSyl LypRadiance (Organic Shea Butter)
*Mentholatum Cherry Chest Rub

I added the comments in parenthesis because I was just recently complaining to Andrea that it's hard to use coupons or get great savings when you shop for natural/organic products.  Well, not today!  And the best part is, when you walk in Rite-Aid all the items that are free after rebate are all grouped together right at the front of the store... you don't even have to walk around the store to find these great deals.  How about a pat on the back for me?

kuddos to you, makes me want to go get some. I'm trying too but it doesn't come natural to me!

This is good to know...I'm an all natural girl too and have the same complaint about coupons and deals not on organic/natural products.

Good job! The best part of shopping is being able to see how much you save

Andrea said...

You can do it ... even on those more "specialized" products. You just have to keep your eyes out and then stock up when it's a good deal.

Glad you've caught the saving bug, it's pretty rewarding, isn't it?
