I Hit The Jackpot At Walgreens Today

My husband says I went overboard with my shopping at Walgreens today — what do you think????

Let me explain — when stuff that you actually USE all the time is FREE, or they pay you to take it, I believe in stocking up!  The Oscillococcinum for children is EXCELLENT — it’s for kids like Halls ProHealth Defense or EmergenC is for adults — take a little extra when you know colds/flu are in the area or school, etc.  These were on sale for $8.99/box with a $9.00 register rewards – PLUS I had $2.00 coupons, so I ended up making $2.00 on each one of them.  The SalonPas arthritis patches were on sale for $5.99 with a $6.00 RR and the Omega Factor 3 fish oil capsules, regular price $24.95 were on sale for $10, with a $10 RR.  Bad news is that when I got home with all my loot and opened up one of the Omega Factor 3 boxes, I FOUND a $3.00 coupon!  Dang!  They COULD have paid me $3.00 for each of those boxes.  Looks like I’m gonna have to hit another Walgreens or two tomorrow to use these $3.00 coupons!!

Let me tell you a little story about the Omega 3 – when my daughter was pregnant with the quads, she asked her Dr. about taking extra vitamins – other than the prenatals, of course.  He said the best thing she could take to help the babies’ developing brains would be Omega 3 fish oil capsules, however, he told her she really should have been taking them the previous 6 months before getting pregnant so the omega 3 fatty acids would be in her body.  She told him she’d been taking Omega 3′s for nearly 2 years, to which he said “wonderful!  keep it up!”

Anybody want to go with me to Walgreens tomorrow since it’s obvious my husband won’t go with me again.
