You know I love a bargain!

I've never been ashamed to admit how much I like saving money or using my coupons. I've even been known to call my mom after leaving the store to tell her exactly how much I saved on particularly good days. So I just have to share this bargain because so many of you live really close to me. You might be able to take advantage of this.

Ok, here's the deal. I got all these diapers at Walgreens for $14.98. If you live near me, this is the Walgreens closest to our church. Right now they are running a deal where if you buy a Jumbo pack of Huggies, you get a trial size of Walgreen's diapers for FREE!! The Huggies are marked down to 9.99 each. Not a great deal, but cheaper than some places. Then you need to get the Walgreens savers booklet located at the front of the store. On the next to the last page there is a flyer where it says if you buy 2 of the same type of baby product you can deduct $2 from your total. Then I used a $1.50/1 coupon on each pack.

The Huggies were $19.98 for 2 packs.

Take off the $2 promotion, making it $17.98.

Take off 2 of the $1.50/1 coupons, for $3, making it $14.98.

The trial packs were $3.97 each, and were Free.

Total savings: $12.94

Total spent: $14.98 plus tax.

That makes each diaper about 14 cents apiece.

I don't know if this deal will work in all states, but it works for me!!

You "Coupon People", how do you do it?!?! I NEVER get good deals, just ask my sister, she'll tell you. She won't take me yard sale shopping with her anymore, she says I jinx her, lol! I'm going to have to start keeping my eyes open for some bargains. Although this one wouldn't benefit me, it sounds like a steal...I remember the diaper days!!

Diapers are so expensive, I will glad to soon be out of this stage to save some money.

Thanks for sharing this deal.

Oh, I'm so happy to see this post! (Almost as happy as I am to only have 2 in diapers now instead of 3) I'm in no rush to end the diaper days, though. They grow so quickly!!! Off to Walgreen's tomorrow!
