Cheap baby wipes at Walgreens

I really hate going to my home Walgreens.

When I say hate, I mean hate.

Last year I lived in Pearland.  I got kicked out for trying to keep my son in the shopping cart.  I had to raise my voice.  Other shoppers threatened to call CPS on me.  Management kicked me out.  Of course, I called corporate.  I never heard back from that store after the incident.  I also never shopped there again.

This year I live closer to Galveston.  I've had one woman try to tell me that it's illegal to get overage on any coupons.  She said it was fraud.  I tried to tell her that it's not, according to the CIC.  She said I just don't know enough about coupons.  There's another lady that always works the front register.  She insists on scanning each coupon as the item is scanned.  Of course, this makes a 3 minute checkout stretch out to about half an hour.  It's just ridiculous!

Nonetheless, I found a deal posted by Wild for Wags that I couldn't pass up.  I gathered my coupons, which were $0.50 off 1, not $1.00 off 2, and headed to Wags.

I stepped inside and worried because the item-coupon scanner was the only one at any registers.  No one was at photo, no one was at makeup.  Uh-oh.

Even so, my transaction went smoothly.  I was expecting some sort of problem with using 2 Walgreen's coupons, just because that particular cashier works in those ways.  No hassle.  It took $6.00 off per Walgreens coupon.  All in all, I got 3 packages of Huggies wipes in the 216 count for $4.87.  Awesome!  

Walgreens advertised savings: $9.00
Manufacturer coupon savings: $13.50
Your total savings $22.50

Not too bad considering 1 pack of these wipes cost $8.99 normally.  I scored 3 for close to half that price!

And, there's a specific reason why I need these baby wipes now.  I do have a 4, almost 5 year old.  They're great for quick wipe ups still!  There's another reason, though.  Come March, Baby Newbie will be joining us!  <3 <3 <3  So far, Mom's very nauseated all.the.time.  Mom's also very tired all.the.time.  Nothing is getting cooked from scratch, everything's frozen meals.  While it's not good on our budget, it's better than ordering out every day, and you gotta do what you gotta do especially in the 1st trimester and 8th month.

  2. They were from the August coupon book, available in the store. Unfortunately, those are no longer valid since it's September. Sorry. :(

  3. I'm sorry. I forgot that I used 2 Walgreens coupons. The other was from the Infant Care Book that came out a number of months ago and expires 12/31.
