|The growing personal/household supplies stockpile|
I did get a fantastic deal on Nexcare bandaids. They are on sale for $2.99 a box right now, and there is a refund certificate for the full price on each box. I also had a coupon for $1 off 2 boxes, so I bought 2 boxes for $4.98 out of pocket, and I will be getting $5.98 back in the mail when the rebate comes. That makes the bandaids a $1 moneymaker, which means that I broke even on this trip, even with the maxi pad mixup.
Total spent: $8.96
Total sale and coupon savings: $6 (40% savings)
Total savings after RR and rebates: $14.98 (63% savings)
