Walgreens Fillers – What Can I Use?


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Useful Walgreens Fillers What are "Walgreens fillers" you ask? Walgreen's Register Rewards are classified as manufacturers coupons and since you can only have one manufacturers coupon per item, you might need filler items in order to use all the coupons and RRs that you want to. For example, if you are buying four items and using four coupons then you need to pick a filler item in order to use a register reward on that purchase. Then you'd have 5 items and 5 coupons. I have composed a list … [Read more...]

Week of Free from a Wizard, Part 2


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Week of Free Part 2 As my week of free continues (see the first post here), I have to say it's gone pretty well (aside from one annoyance). I have more money in my "Grocery" envelope than I would normally have had at this time of the week, and we are all well-fed! I feel like I've been running all over the place this week, which I'm not really thrilled with. I'm happy with my freebies though! Here is the breakdown of what these trips contained: Week of Free at Walgreens 2 Tylenol Precise … [Read more...]

Coupons – Time to Use them at Walgreens & Target


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Using Coupons at Walgreens & Target I had a pretty stellar shopping trip with coupons today! I really wanted to make sure I could use all of the great coupons I had from Insert Insanity so I headed out and was pleased to see stocked shelves and joyful cashiers who were having as much fun as I was seeing the total for my trip decline! First off, I had pre-ordered sixty of the Big Bags of Nabisco snacks as I did not want to clear any shelves and they were there, all ready for me to … [Read more...]

Rain Check Strategies Do you have a rain check file? Read this entire article.  It will save you HUGE dollars!  How many times have you spent time preparing your shopping list, preparing your spreadsheet, clipping your coupons and driving to the store only to realize that once you get there they only have 1 of the 10 items you were shopping for? Not cool. Not cool at all.  Certainly I read all the comments from frustrated Wiz Kids about the shelf clearing in their area. I agree. There is … [Read more...]

Nabisco – Valerie’s Shopping Trip 1/11/12


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Nabisco Testing Trip   I decided to run errands today to test the Nabisco $3/3 coupon from the 1/8 SmartSource inserts. When we have a potentially controversial coupon we like to research it for you and for ourselves. Sometimes that means taking it to the store and talking with the Mgr or calling the manufacturer directly. This is one of those coupons because the photo shows full size boxes but the verbiage says ANY. So off I go to test 4 stores. None of the managers or cashiers … [Read more...]

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Importance of Store Loyalty Cards Do I Need To Get My Store's Loyalty Card? The easy answer to this it yes if you want to get the most out of shopping at your favorite stores.  You can get most loyalty cards at the register or customer service center in the store or by applying online.  Usually if you apply on line you are given a temporary sheet you can print so that you can use the card immediately till your card comes in. Most stores have a free loyalty card.  However, some like GNC do … [Read more...]

How Wizard Lauren organizes coupons


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

How I Organize Coupons We all organize our coupons a little differently and to tell the truth, my method has changed about four times already in the last 9 months. At first, I tried cutting out every coupon and using a binder. When that one got too full, I got two binders (one for food, and one for health/beauty items). After talking to other Wiz Kids, I decided to try a hybrid coupon organization method to save myself time. Breaking Down Coupon Inserts When I get my inserts I break them down … [Read more...]

Saving – It’s OK Not To Save 90% Every Time


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

It's OK Not Saving 90% I've certainly done better, but I'm still pretty happy with today's trip. Saving a good amount of money on several high dollar items in the same trip can be a challenge. Some of these were either on sale or I had store coupons getting ready to expire in the next couple of days and I wanted to be sure I used them being that they are products I use regularly. It's OK not to save 90% every time you go shopping, in fact it's unrealistic. Wags:      3 12 packs of coke … [Read more...]
