Recap of my May goal...

I have to admit I failed on my May goal. I ended up going over my goal of spending $275 on everything besides bills that are already set in stone. I spent $60 on presents for teachers and family that I really wasn't thinking about when I set my goal. I also had to fill up each of the cars with gas twice, which isn't normal for us - we usually only go through one tank per car a month.

I also headed out to Old Navy for their 50% additional off clearance items, which is always bad news on the budget for me, but I got some great deals - like short sleeved polos for my son for less than $2 each and licensed Broncos t-shirts for my husband for only $3 - he was super excited!

Needless to say, I went over budget this month but will set more goals for our family in the near future.

Do you have any goals for June? They can be money related or not! Good luck and you get to start fresh with a new month!

(you can use this link to print any or all of the coupons)

As always, I suggest printing what you want now, as the good ones tend to disappear quickly!

Did you come across any other great printable coupons?

FREE U by Kotex & FREE Always Pads!

There is another great deal at Walgreens this week. Buy any U by Kotex pads on sale for $3.49, use $1/1 printable here. You will pay $2.49 after the coupon and get a $2.50 RR, making them FREE after the RR!

But it gets even better...If you purchase pads or liners (tampons are not included) you will also get a catalina coupon at checkout good for a FREE Always product! That is about as good as these deals get, 2 products for FREE!

Even if you don't use these products, they are great donation items. Food banks and other places are always in need of products like these.

It's the end of the month...

so make sure to print any of the printable coupons that you want today as they usually reset the beginning of the month. Coupons.com, Redplum.com and Smartsource.com are all good sites to check out and print your coupons from.

There was a surprise...

in the paper yesterday, did you get the GM insert that we weren't expecting? If you already tossed your paper into the recycle bin without looking in it, you may want to pull it out as most papers received this insert.

Walgreens Weekly Deals 5/30 - 6/5

I am just doing a highlight of the best deals at Walgreens this week as my weekend is pretty busy. If I missed any great deals, please let me know and I'll add them to the list. Looks like a great week for Register Reward (RR) deals.

If you are new to shopping at Walgreens, go here, here and here for some helpful hints.

Luster White 7 Toothpaste (2.6 oz.) $5, get $5 RR
Cost = $5, get $5 RR, like getting it FREE after RR!

Ecotrin Aspirin (45 ct., 81 mg) $2, get $2 RR
Use $2/1 from the 5/16 RP
Cost = $0, get $2 RR - BETTER THAN FREE AFTER RR!

Walgreens A thru Z Select Multivitamins (60 ct.) $2, get $2 RR
Cost = $2, get $2 RR, like getting them FREE after RR!

Rejuvicare Ultimate Skin, Hair or Nail Supplement ( 30 or 60 ct. or 16 oz.) $9.99, get $10 RR
Cost = $9.99, get $10 RR, like getting this FREE after RR!

Cortaid Maximum Strength Anti-Itch Cream (.5 oz.) $3
Use $1/1 from the 4/25 SS
Cost = $2 and then you can submit a mail in rebate.
A mail in rebate should print with your receipt, making this free after submitting for the rebate.

Reach Toothbrush $.99

Use $.50/1 from the 4/11 RP or $1/1 from the 5/16 RP
Cost = FREE - $.49 each! The $1/1 coupon may beep since the value of it is higher than the actual cost. Stores can adjust the coupon down to $.99 if they choose. Another way around it is to buy 2 toothbrushes = $1.98 and use one $1/1 coupon so your final cost is $.49 each!

Buy $10 or more of participating Hershey's and Twizzler's products, get $5 RR
Buy 4 Reese's Pieces or York Pieces = $10
Use 4, $1/1 from the 4/18 SS
Cost = $6, get $5 RR back, like spending $1 or $.25 each after RR!

Cost Plus $5 off $15 coupon

As you may already know, I love this store. Right now they have a $5 off $15 purchase coupon available here. This coupon is good through June 6th, so you have plenty of time to take advantage of it!

I haven't been shopping very much lately but between the Old Navy sale and this coupon, I may just have to get out and see what I "need"!
