Monday Shopping

Rite Aid had some pretty good deals for shampoo that's free after rebates this week. One of the items is only on rebate through tomorrow so I decided to head over there tonight. Here what I got:

Transaction 1:
Natural Instincts Hair Color $5.99
Head & Shoulders Shampoo $8.00 (2 * $4.00)
Aqua Fresh Advanced Toothpaste $2.49
Secret Flawless Deodorant $3.99
Samy iStyle Mousse $4.49

Hair Color ($4.00)
Head & Shoulders ($4.00) buy 1 get 1 free
Secret ($1.00)

Total OOP $16.98

Natural Instincts $1.99
Head & Shoulders $4.00
Aqua Fresh $2.49
Secret $2.00
Samy iStyle $4.49
Total Rebates Pending: $14.98

So once I get my rebate back, all of this will have only cost me $2.00

Transaction #2 at Rite Aid
Pantene Beautiful Lengths shampoo & conditioner $6.00
Coupon ($1.50)
Total OOP $4.86
Rebate pending $1.50
Net cost will be $3.36
This one would have been a much better transaction if I had only gotten the shampoo, but I wound up getting both because the clerk was nice enough to go in the back and get these for me. She said the truck had just dropped them off so none of them were out yet. I didn't want to upset her after she was nice enough to help me. I may be able to use her help again in the future.

Trash Bags $3.50
Baby Food $1.69
M&Ms $1.49
WAG Calcium Chewies $5.99
Gillette Shave Gel $2.00
WAG Coupon for Shave Gel ($1.00)
Manuf. coupon for Shave Gel ($1.00)
Redeemed Register Rewards ($5.00)
Total OOP: $8.09
Rebate Pending: $6.59 (for the WAG chewies)

This transaction would have been much better if my husband hadn't added the m&ms while I was checking out. Also, we added the baby food because we weren't heading right back home and I didn't have a jar of baby food in my bag like I thought. My daughter was hungry and I had to feed her. So this one was just bad planning on my part. At least I did get some free shave gel.
