Never buy toiletries again!

If you are into saving money you undoubtedly have heard about Walgreens and their rebate program. They have stopped their program as of this month and have implemented a new program in which you purchase particular items and then right at checkout receive a coupon for a dollar off amount on your next purchase. This is a terrific program because the benfits to the consumer are terrific if you spend some time organizing your deals.

For example, last week Nivea body wash was priced $4.99. Purchase one and you receive a $5.00 Register reward [coupon] good on your next purchase. I purchased the body wash and did several other separate transactions one after the other all the while using the coupon from the previous sale to purchase the items in the next sale. Walked out with $65.00 worth of stuff and paid tax. I have had people behind me in line stop me in the parking lot and ask me how I do it.

First of all if someone else is doing the work already why should you do it? Time is money. There are loads of websites out the where the bloggers do the deals for you and all you have to do is copy it down on an envelope, put your coupons into the envelope and away you go to score some deals. The site I use most is:

This site writes out all the deals for you plus has a tutorial for how to shop at Walgreens. all the work has been done for you. Money Saving Mom also highlights deals for other stores such as Target and Walmart. No need to spend more money than you need to and no need to speand more time than you need to. These bloggers have paved the way. Happily charge on after them while you save money.
