Meijer & Walgreens.... I <3 Saving $

Decided I couldn't pass the Meijer deals up, so went back again. Since husband and I are going on a date tonight, remembered I needed to provide a meal for our lovely teenagers. Turned my Pond's Peelies into Movie Tickets (free) and going to see Bangkok Dangerous. Can't go wrong w/Nicholas Cage is what I say... Plus we have the Q from Papa John's Pizza Box flier for a Free Lg Popcorn w/purchase of a Lg Drink. So about $4.50 for a movie and concessions for 2? Not bad at all...

Also wanted to use my $10/$40 Coupon, and some of those RR's that were burning a hole in my "hot coupons" organizer**. It didn't go as planned, and my OOP about made me cry... But it'll pay off in the form of rebates... I took these pictures while waiting for husband to pick a video game in the Blockbuster Store to "rent". We get 1 rental free each month with our Total Rewards membership.

So technically it's a profit... I'll get more than I spent. It just hurts to spend it, that's all.

Then I ran back in to do a quick deal since she wouldn't let me use more than 1 RR in the previous transaction. Boy was this one fun...

** My "hot coupons" organizer. I decided that in addition to my 2 fullsized coupon organizers (one for food, one for non-food) I'd get a smaller organizer for my "hot coupons". Stuff I use all the time, or am price checking, or whatever. Free stuff coupons, haircuts, rebate forms, oil changes, etc. So when I was last at the Office Depot turning my old cartridges into $3 store credit vouchers, I decided to grab one. I think I ended up paying about $1.50 OOP (used a $3 voucher, I think it was priced at $3.99) It's got 12 tabs. I also now put the q's i have lined up for a particular trip into it. I have separate tabs for Meijer, CVS, Walgreens, etc... I put my ECB in there, my Meijer-only Catalinas, rain checks, and un-filed receipts... you get the idea... here's a picture.
