Only paid $0.32 for 3 items at Walgreens {score!!!}

So today as I was looking through coupons and advertisement, I came across this awesome sale at Walgreens. Ok, so here was the deal: I like electrasol {pretty expensive I know} but, if you by it on sale and with a coupon you score!! So anyway, at Walgreens it wasn’t really on sale the deal was you buy it for $3.49 and they give you a $1 back {not too bad, but still expensive for me}. So in this past Sundays ad {Smart Source 01/03/10} there was a coupon for $2.50 off Electrasol ( I was jumping for joy when I saw this}. Which, only happens every know and then. So here is the math $3.49{original price}-$2.50{Mft coupon}=$0.99 {out of pocket}-$1.00 {you get back in spending money}+$0.24{for tax} =$0.24 total for electrasol {score!!}.

So the total actually came out to $1.24 {which you have to pay out of pocket} but then she gives you back $1.00 {in catalina to spend on your next purchase}. This was my first transaction, so I had another transaction to be able to use that $1.00 right away because I needed an item(s). With the second transaction I needed some Ajax and they had a walgreens coupon for 2/$1 {I checked for manufacutures coupon but there wasn’t any, unless I missed it}. So I used the coupon and you can only get the items for free if the item’s are over a dollar {never under, it won’t work}. So after I give her my 2 bottles and the walgreen’s coupon it came out to $1.08 {wheww..it was over by $.08 what I hoped for, to be able to use catalina}. So I only paid $.08 for those {that’s .04 cents each}. So all together I paid $0.32 for everything {with the exception of the dollar,but they gave it right back to me in catalina, same thing to me}.

If I would have just gone in there and paid regular price {which I almost never do..I’m frugal} I would have spent $5.50, let me break it down:
Electrasol $3.49ea
Ajax $0.99ea

Wow, why pay regular price when you can get it for almost nothing. Next time I will remember to take a pic. God bless you and stay frugal!!

I love to share my frugalities with you!!

“the wise man saves for the future, but the foolish man spends whatever he gets.”” Proverbs 21:2 TLB

I had to share that verse with you. I read it today while doing our Money Map from Crown Ministries . I highly recommend it if you are trying to become debt free. First thing is though pray about like I have for the last 3 or so years. Then seek counsel, Dennis Ashby at our church is a financial counselor and he is awesome, totally led by the Lord. Then get a budget plan going. When I first read that verse Prov 21:2, this morning it was so convicting…seriously. Like when I got money in my hot little hands it was gone by the end of day. I was that foolish man that spent whatever I got. Growing up poor you tend to blow money right away {at least that’s what I did}. But this is another reason why I love being frugal. Trying to save every penny to get out of debt. Also trusting in the Lord with what He gives you and being a good steward over it. “Keep out of debt and owe no man anything “. Romans 13:8 {amplified}

The Borrower is servant to the Lender” Proverbs 22:7
Steady plodding brings prosperity. Proverbs 21:5 TLB
You will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. John 8:32

Foundational Principles {taken from the Money map guide:

Key Principle Three: Invite God to take control of your finances
1 Chronicles 29:11 says: “We adore you as being in control of everything.” (TLB)

Key Principle Four: Faithfulness with money requires self-control, and God provides it
Galatians 5:22 says: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.” (NIV)

Key Principle Five: Celebrate each step as you make steady progress
Psalm 145:7 says: “They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.” (NIV)

God Bless you!!
