From My Readers...

Coupon Clipper: You and my sister inspired me over Christmas to give this all a try. We only have Walgreen's here and none of the supermarkets double coupons so I have really just been concentrating on Walgreen's.

My sister and I have figured out some interesting things about Walgreen's, the add that I get is different then the ad that comes out in Brighton or Howell, but Lansing and Fenton get the longer extended version ad that I get. My sister and I realized it the first week I was visiting and she asked at the Brighton Walgreen's. She was told that they will match the extended ad that other areas get.

As an example this week Gillette Mach 3 razors are on sale for 5.99, I had 2 BOGO coupons from my P&G insert (get 2 papers, mine and a friend from church who gives me the coupons), and then received $5 in RR for purchasing $20 in P&G products. $5.99 x4 = 23.96 - 11.96 BOGO - 5 RR makes 12 razors for my husband cost $7. He was thrilled and so was I. I have also managed to accumulate 7 tubes of free toothpaste just since returning on January 5.

Thank you for showing me how its done and for being a good friend to my sister.

The 'Ripple Effect' is a beautiful thing.
