Monthly Mission - Walgreen's and Walmart

We have been going through milk much faster than normal, so I had to run to Walgreen's last night. Because Walmart is right next door, I decided to brave it (I hate Walmart!) for a few great deals.

Here is what I picked up at Walgreen's:
1 Gallon Skim Milk - $2.99

1 Gallon Whole Milk - $3.19

1 Scotch Mailer - $.99

Total before coupons - $7.60

Used 2 $3.00 Register Rewards

Total OOP: $1.60

Those were the last of my Register Rewards so I am hoping for some moneymakers next week!

Then it was off to Walmart:
3 Johnson's Buddies Soap - $2.91 ($.97 each)

3 Kotex lightdays - $3.00 ($1.00 each)

3 Ronzoni Smart Taste Spaghetti - $4.50 ($1.50 each)

Total before coupons - $11.03

Coupons used:

1 $3.00 off 3 Johnson's products (making the soap free!)

3 $1.00 off 1 Kotex (making the pads free!)

3 $1.00 off 1 Ronzoni (making them $.50 each!)

Total OOP including tax was $2.03! Woo hoo!

That was another $3.63 out of my $100.00 Monthly Mission budget - so I am left with $15.86 for the whole rest of the month, which is about $1.00 per day. Read more about my Monthly Mission and see what my purchases have been here.

My plan today is to make menus for the rest of the month (I know, I'm not really a menu maker, but this will be helpful to see where my $15.86 will be best spent). Once I have it figured out, I will post my plans. Wish me luck!
