Show it off! — Brooke rocks Walgreens!

Brooke has done it again! This time her savings was $46.10 at Walgreens! She spent $14.24 OOP. Please read the following on how Brooke Did it.

(2) $1/1 Starbucks Frappuccino MFG Coupon
(1) $.35 Purex MFG Coupon

How Brooke did it:

I made two transactions. The first had everything in it except the Purex and the M&Ms. It came to $32.72 before any coupons. All the coupons brought it down to $13.28 plus I got an $8 RR for purchasing 3 Triaminic/Theraflu products.

Then I turned around and bought two Purex detergents which were on a BOGO sale and my M&Ms bringing my total to $9.68+ tax. I then used the $.35 Purex coupon and my $8 RR bring my OOP to $.96 w/ tax.

The cashier actually screwed up my Theraflu/Triaminic purchase so when the manager re-did it, I got another $8 RR which I told him I shouldn’t receive because I had already used it on the Purex but he gave me to me anyways for the trouble. So I walked away with an $8 RR also.

So, my OOP was $14.24 and my savings were $46.10.

How do you organize your coupons?

This past week we have been having discussions in the chatroom on coupon binders and other ways to organize coupons. I stated that I have a coupon binder but I prefer to use the envelope/file folder system in the store. I find the binder to be pretty bulky and I usually do not end up using it. I carry enough coupons in my envelope to make up for not carrying them all. Also, not having kids I can run home and grab the coupon if I really need to and then head back to the store. I do use the binder to organize the coupons I get in the mail or the ones I might not use but have just incase. I also have another binder that I organize the extra inserts I purchase.

How do you organize your coupons? Do you rock the whole binder when going to the store? Do you only bring it with you sometimes. Do people stare at you?! Please feel free to add your comments to this post or in the chatroom.

RECALL — Plum Organics Baby Food

This information was taken from:

Plum Organics is recalling some of its apple and carrot portable pouch baby food because of concerns over possible botulism contamination. The product was sold individually throughout the country at Toys-R-Us and Babies-R-Us stores.

The California-based company says the product did not meet the FDA guidelines for proper acidity level, leaving it vulnerable to botulism contamination. Botulism is a serious and sometimes life-threatening condition.

Consumers should not use these products, even if they appear to be normal, because of the possible health risk.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the baby food, and the company says no other Plum Organics products are affected.

The recalled product is sold in 4.22-ounce pouches, with a “best by” date of May 21, 2010, and UPC 890180001221.
