Sunday Savings!

This week, I spent most of my time at Walgreens. I wasn't able to do a ton of shopping, but did manage to find a few great deals.

Walgreens had an awesome ad this past week.  I got all of this:

I used the awesome coupons that Staples emailed out to finance my newest coupon organizer. :]  I got a big clear organizer box for $8, but will get $8 back in Staples rewards, making it free!  I also used the 50% off Staples manilla file folders to put my coupons in, which made them only $3 for 100 file folders.  While in Staples, I found awesome SmartSource dispensers with $2 off any Avery labels, which I used to get 4 packs of Avery label pads on sale for $3.  With the coupon, they were only $1 each, and I used those to label my new folders.  Of course, I used my coupons for FREE sticky notes, and got two 12-packs of Staples stickies for free!  We won't need sticky notes for a very long time [unless Jameson finds them].  All in all, I spent $15, but will get $8 back in Staples Rewards!  The total retail value for all of that was $52.77, making my Staples trip 87% off retail!
