sunday sales

Looks like there's some great deals out there this week!

Today, we went to Rite Aid and Walgreens. At Riteaid we got a SaltAire nasal wash kit (regular price $9.99) which is on sale for $6.99 and then free after a $6.99 rebate through Rite Aid's Single Check Rebate program. We also got a bottle of Skintimate shaving cream (regular price $3.99) which is on sale for $2.99, and has a $2.24 rebate. Last, we picked up a bottle of Electrasol dishwasher detergent (regular price $6.19), which is on sale for $4.49 and has a $2.00 rebate. We had coupons for $1.00 off the shaving cream and $2.50 off the Electrasol, so that helped too when it came to making the Rite Aid trip full of savings!

Over at Walgreens, we picked up a bottle of Nivea body wash which is on sale for $4.99 (regular price $6.99). We had a $1.00 coupon which we used when we bought it, and at checkout, we got back a $5.00 Register Rewards coupon to use on our next Walgreens purchase. We also got a steam vaporizer to use during next year's cold season, regular price $19.99, on clearance for $7.49. Seems like Walgreens has lots of winter items on clearance right now - they had blankets, humidifiers, portable electric heaters, and all sorts of good things like that up to 75 percent off.

Later this week, we'll be headed to Market Basket, as they have the energy efficient Sylvania light bulbs on sale for several dollars off regular price (the price varies depending which kind you buy - we'll have more details after we stop by). We still have a couple regular floodlight bulbs in our basement, and we'll be taking the opportunity to buy energy efficient replacements this week at a huge discount. Market Basket also has Scoopaway cat litter, 28lbs for $7.99 - that's a better price than we've been getting at Target when they've had their sales lately. So we'll grab a couple Scoopaways while we're grocery shopping this week too. We like to stock up on pet supplies when we find good prices, as the sales on those seem to be different each time!
