First Rite Aid Run and maybe not my last

My Steals-(Thanks Mom for the phone call!)
1 Kotex 48ct with bonus of 10 $2.99-$1 coupon- $2 Rebate= FREE
1 Oral B Crossaction $5.00- $2 coupon-$3 Rebate= FREE
1 Crest ProHealth Toothpaste $2.49- $1 coupon-$1 Rebate=$.49
1 Airborne 10ct $5.99- $1 coupon-$2 Rebate=$2.99
5 SoyJoy for $3 -$3 Rebate= FREE
Total OOP: $14.52
Total Coupon Savings $6.00

With Rite Aid you have to submit your rebates either online(rec. rebate in 2-3weeks) or by mail (rec. rebate in 4-6 weeks). So after my rebates I will have paid $4.52 for all this stuff! I could have done another Kotex deal b/c I had another $1 coupon, but there is a limit of 1 rebate per household. Bummer! I will definitely try to get some more steals again! This was fun!!! :-)

My first Ingles Run

Sorry no pic but here are the steals:
Ingles had some of their Rayovac Batteries on sale 5 for $5 and there is a $1 printable coupon out there.
2 Rayovac AA Batteries at $1- 2 $1 coupons= FREE
2 Rayovac AAA Batteries at $2.18- 2 $1 coupons= $2.36
1 Ingles 9V Battery $.97
Total OOP: $3.77
Saved $8.50
I had to buy the 2 packs at $2.18 b/c they were all sold out of the $1 ones and we needed that size. So, it worked out ok! I think I may pay attention more to Ingles ads in the future!
Do any of ya'll shop Ingles? If so let me know of the "steals" you got!

1 Oscar Myer Deli Fresh Combo lunch pack $2.00- $1 Publix printable coupon=$1

Target Freebies and Great Steals!!

I have always tried to follow the rule of couponers: Pick your cashier wisely!! It worked for me quite nicely this time. My young male cashier had to push through many of my coupons that resulted in me getting trial size products for free! I guess Target doesn't take coupons that make trial size products free even though my coupons said ANY size product and did not say that they excluded trial size products. Anyways, here is what I got at Target today even admist the Christmas return and sale shopping crowds.
1 New wallet $9.99 ( I think I will have to return it b/c I don't think it will work for what I need)
2 All 2X trial size detergent $1.02 ea -$2 coupon= $.04
1 Tide one load detergent $.97- $1 off any size Tide= FREE($.03 MM)
1 Twixels Holiday Candy Christmas clearance $2.12(just b/c they looked good to try)
1 Premium M&M's  candy $1.49 clearance- $1 Target coupon- $1 Manufacturer coupon= $.51MM!!
1 Mott's Apple Juice Marked down price of $1.79- $1 off coupon=$.79
1 Glad Force Flex Trash Bags Marked down price $5.99- $1 Target coupon- $1 Man. coupon= $3.99
1 Rolaids 3 roll package $1.32- $1 coupon= $.32
Total: $16.94(most of this amt was the wallet)
I used $10.34 gift card I had from returning stuff
Total OOP: $6.60
Saved: $12.25
So did you hit up Target for any after Christmas STEALS?
