Albertsons Soup Deal Experiment

After talking with several other bloggers and friends I decided to try another run at Albertsons for the Progresso soup.  I had heard that the broth discount was inconsistent and people were not getting a total of three deductions when they purchased 12 cans.  I was thinking that maybe it was based on the flavors purchased so I decided to buy (12) cans of the same flavor to see if it made a difference.  I did not receive three discounts but I did get two. My deal looked like this.

(12) Progresso Soup $1.39 each
  • -(4) $1.10/3 Progresso soup
  • -$4.98 Free broth with purchase of (4) soup
  • - $5.00 Catalina from previous transaction
  • Total OOP $2.30 plus another $5 Catalina
* I actually purchased a few more items to get my total to $25 so that I could get the Catalina for the (3) Albertsons Doubles.  The total just needs to get to $25 before coupons to receive the Catalina.  If you were unaware of the new promotion Karissa at Confessions of a Couponaholic did a great job of explaining it.

Walgreens Steals (Deals)

I don't know about everyone else but I am loving Walgreens mid week ads. I made off with several more stocking stuffers today.  Last year I spent over $50 on each stocking this year I will be getting them done for under $10 each. Yeah!

I did the Hair clips and brushes in separate transactions as I had the $2 Goody RR from last week so I rolled them into the new promotion and just paid tax on each of the hair clips and brushes. .17 each and of course I received another $2 RR on each

It looks like I left my receipt for my one large transaction at work so I will detail it tomorrow.  But I can tell you that I ended up making money off the transaction.

Thanks Ladies for all your hard work. I'm going to try and spread Christmas spirit today!

Is the Grinch stealing your Christmas Spirit?

Wow! Today was Crabby, Cranky, Crazy person day. I've always said that some day when I retire I'm going to write a book about the crazy people that I have had to deal with over the years as a Retail Manager.  Don't get me wrong I enjoy my job 99% of time but some people really know how to push my buttons. I truly believe that everyone should have to work retail for a week.  My friend says that everyone should have to work as a nurse for a week too. 

My drive today started off with a little road rage with a crazy lady in a SUV. Not all women that drive SUV's are crazy. (I drive one and can guarantee you, I am perfectly sane) She must have been annoyed by the little grey haired lady driving 20mph in a 35 because she layed on her horn swerved around me and the poor old lady in front of me and nealy clipped the front of the elderly ladies car.  The elderly woman nearly crashed trying to get out of the crazy SUV ladies way.  To top it off the crazy SUV lady flipped her the bird. 

All of this took place in a matter of seconds while I was belting out the words to Little Drummer Boy.  I was feeling the Christmas spirit but the crazy lady in the SUV surely was not. 

Later I ran by Target to take a quick peak to see if maybe just maybe they had put out a few Zhu Zhu pets.  Of course they had not but I happened to over hear another crazy lady loudly cursing a poor part time associate in the toy aisle.  I have ran into that associate a few times while shopping and new that she was a little slow.  The associate looked very upset her face and neck were all red and blotchy.  Feeling like a mother hen I stepped in and confronted the crazy cursing woman. My husband says that someday I'm going to get myself killed by sticking up for everyone else but I really didn't care at that moment and told her how rude she was.  It felt really good to speak up for the innocent.  As a manager you always have to smoothe things over but I was able tell her how ridiculous she was acting.   When I was leaving another associate thanked me. What people don't realize is how much a bad customer can affect your emotions for the rest of the day. 

Back at work I just noticed how short and impatient people were today. Yes, it's cold outside and I'm sorry we can't always have everything that you would like in stock.  We try our best to find what you are looking for and get it in time for Christmas.  The nicer you are the harder we will try to find what you need. 

So I'm asking everyone to reach inside their hearts and find something kind to say to someone during your next shopping experience.  Forget about the lines or the lack of associates to be found in a store and find your Christmas Spirit.

How are you Giving this Year?

Each year when it comes to donating during the Holidays I find myself being torn in several different directions. Last year we did the Tree of Sharing, Shoeboxes for overseas, and Toys for Tots and of course the Food Bank. The year before was spent helping a single Mother of three after her house burned down right before Thanksgiving.   This year with so many in need I have found myself praying for answers to what we should do.  Today when I came to work my prayers were answered. 

We have the sweetest and kindest cleaning lady that comes in three days a week (Work that is, I wish I could afford a housekeeper).  She has a positive attitude and is very hard working. I found out that money is extremely tight for her family this year and that they were not planning on purchasing any gifts. She said that her 9yr old son understood how tight money was and that he knew not to expect anything. 

After hearing her story I knew that her family would be the family that we helped this year.  I know there are stories like hers everywhere this year.  I also knew that whoever we helped this year would be a family that was working hard to make a better life for themselves. 

My plan is a small gift for her and her husband and some nice toys for their nine year old and of course some groceries.  If anyone has some ideas for their son it would be greatly appreciated. I'm out of touch with Boy toys as my son is a teenager and I'm now raising girls. 

So now I'm asking everyone else, What are your plans for giving this Holiday Season?

Walgreen's 12/2/09

Walgreen's released a new flyer today. I'm trying really hard not to buy things that we don't need.  Sometimes couponing can lure you into picking up things that your family doesn't use.  Don't get me wrong I had a blast donating all those items that we didn't need but, I found that I was exhausting myself trying to get to every great deal.  So I'm counting to ten everytime there is a new deal and deciding if we really need the item on sale.  Today is one of the days that I needed to make a trip to Walgreens.  We go through so many hair ties, the entire family loves the dental floss piks and the chocolate was just one of those things that I needed. 

I did five transactions and I have to say that Laura at the Wandermere Walgreen's is the best.  She is so coupon friendly.
