Great Deals at Walgreens & World Market Coupon

Inspired by Passionate Penny Pincher, I decided to maximize my Walgreens deals this week, sans the diapers she had purchased. They are a great price and I'm sure one day I'll wish I'd bought them, but for now, baby-free, it just seemed too weird to buy a package of Huggies! Several drafts and alternate spending scenarios were required for this. You can't just walk into Walgreens willy nilly - that's how they get you!

Here was my plan of attack, factoring in the annoying Walgreens rule that requires an equal or greater amount of items purchased to number of coupons:

To Buy
Omega Smart (cost: $10; Get a $10 register reward) (2 bottles)
Speed Stick 24/7 (cost: 2/$5; Get a $3 register reward)
Revlon Nail Polish (cost: $3.99; Get a $3 register reward)
Pert Shampoo & Conditioner (cost: $3.99; Get a $3 register reward)
Twizzlers (cost: 3/$4)

Existing Register Rewards from Last Week
1 for $1
1 for $2

Transaction #1
Buy 2 Speed Sticks
Use both existing coupons (-$3)
Pay $2
Get $3 reward

Transaction #2
Buy Omega Smart
Use Omega Coupon HERE (-$2)
Pay $8
Get $10 reward

Transaction #3
Buy Pert
Use $1 coupon from 8/14/11 newspaper ads
Buy Revlon Nail Polish
Use $1 coupon from 8/14/11 newspaper ads
Buy Twizzlers (3/$4)
Use $.50 coupon from 8/7/11 (?) newspaper ads
Total So Far: $9.48 (Need to Buy $.52 more to use $10 reward)
Get 2 $3 rewards (now have 3 $3 rewards)

Transaction #4 (different cashier)
Buy 2nd Omega Smart
Buy 3 cheap, miscellaneous items
Use 3 $3 rewards
Use 2nd Omega coupon (-$2)
Get $10 reward (and start this whole crazy process again next week!)

The Omega Smart is an especially good deal. You get 60 pills and the regular price listed on the shelf is about $30! Altogether, I spent $10.75 out of pocket for the 9 items purchased. Not too shabby!

FYI, Sexy Nerd whined the entire 10 minutes we spent at Walgreens. Guys just don't understand the fun of extreme couponing, I guess. Next up, Cost Plus World Market! I never go without a coupon. Click here for a $10 off a $30 purchase coupon.

Here is what I bought and their post-coupon totals:

Set of 4 Condiment Spoons: $3.43

Rice Vinegar: $2.05

World Market EVOO, 2L: $4.80 (Cost Plus also sells a 2L plastic bottle of olive oil that sometimes goes on sale for just slightly more, but the past 2 bottles I've bought have gone rancid before we've been able to use them.)

Chili Oil: $1.71

Organic Miso Hoisin Sauce: $1.72

Plastic Squeeze Bottle (so handy!): $0.68

Sesame Oil: $2.74

Yes, that is a giant Sexy Nerd on the chalkboard. Whyever do you ask?

Measure & Pour Glass: $1.37
(I can't believe I've gone all these years without one of these helpful glasses!)

Treble & Clef Fork and Spoon: $3.41

Cost Plus also had the cutest cheese serving set ever (did you click the link? Isn't it so cute?!) but I decided to save it for my next $10 off coupon.

So, who else out there scored some snazzy deals over the weekend? Did you buy 40 boxes of pasta? 20 pounds of spaghetti sauce that you've never tried before? Thrifty minds want to know!
