Walgreens $100 Challenge - Week 1, Trip 1

Since I shop at Walgreens a lot (although much less than I used to) I thought it'd be fun to see just how much you can get for $100, when you combine coupons with sales and Register Rewards!

I'm going to document everything I buy, what the prices were, which coupons I used, etc. I'm hoping to make it a full year before I hit the $100 mark!

And, just so you know, I'm starting this challenge with no RRs or gift cards. Nor do I buy or trade for multiple coupons...just one set of inserts and my computer!

(Note: I used to trade for coupons before Rowan was born, but now it just takes more time than I am willing to spend on it.)


January 1st and 2nd, I didn't do any shopping, so this first week is January 3rd - 9th.
I preview the ads early over at Hot Coupon World's Walgreens forum. This helps a ton when preparing your shopping list and coupons!

    HOW do you do that?!!!!!!!!help me, help me save!

  3. Thanks for checking out my blog! I really like the layout of yours.

    I too have heard you can save a bundle at Walgreens. I have one not far from my house. Perhaps I will have to go take a gander this week.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Now that is impressive! I wish I lived near you so you could take me under your wing:)

  5. oh. my. goodness. At first I thought there was an error, and you meant $66. Wow. How in the world? I'm definitely gonna need to try this!

    (Thanks for stopping by!)

  6. That is a pretty good deal. I love Walgreens too - and CVS!

    There is no reason to pay so much more when you don't have to. :)

    Great job!
