I Saved $75 Today

I don’t know why I continue to torture myself. I see wonderful deals like 31 bottles of Soft Soap for $3.99 at Walgreen’s and say to myself “What an awesome deal!!”.

So what do I do next?….

I pack my little self up and head over to Walgreen’s, only to end up spending more than I planned.

I can go into CVS and get $116 worth of items for .91¢ any day of the week, but can’t seem to save more than 75% at Walgreen’s.

I always end up spending close to $10 and walk away feeling ripped of, especially in comparison to 31 Soft Soaps for $3.99

I am so glad that people are mastering the art of shopping at Walgreen’s I however am not.

These cereal purchases qualify you for a FREE Publix shopping bag with purchase. There are some really cute ones. I chose the one below.
