Frugal Friday--Tips for Being MORE Frugal at Walgreens

Some tips I have learned recently for shopping at Walgreens:

*ALWAYS, ALWAYS flip through your EasySaver booklet before you go up to check out at the register. Last week I got home and discovered that though I had gotten a great deal on batteries with a regular coupon, I could have saved $1 more if I had paid attention to the coupons in the Easy Saver booklet too. I also missed getting another good deal (Kotex pads for 50 cents) because I wasn't paying attention to the EasySaver coupons.
*Be very careful to get the exact items that the flyer says for RR deals. The past couple of times I have made mistakes on the ounces of toothpaste, etc. and it has caused some hassle with having to get the manager over there and confusing everyone.
*Pay attention to minor holiday sales. They often have free photo deals or great sales on holidays like Leap Day, Tax Day, Memorial Day, etc. Today they have a super good coupon out you can print off online to get $5 off a $20 purchase. Even though I already bought most of my Free-After-Rebate items for the month of May, I am going to hit Walgreens this afternoon since we'll be driving through on our way out of town for the weekend and am planning to get a big LOAD of great stuff for around $4.50 thanks to this extra coupon and some others I didn't use last time.

I love Walgreen's. I'm always finding great buys there. In fact, they generally sell milk cheaper than most anyone else (except Target)!
I'm doing an ABCs of creative/sewing blogs. I know your blog doesn't start with U, but there's one in there so you are my ABC blog today!
