Walgreens 1/19-1/24: Get Your Party ON!

Posted by Marianne Thomas | 1/23/2009 10:30:00 AM | | 2 comments »

Do you have a party coming up on your family calendar? Maybe one that involves pigskins and NFL bragging rights for the next year?

We're not hosting a Superbowl party on February 1st but we are hosting a smallish family get-together on Sunday to celebrate my youngest's birthday. He turned three today and we're looking forward to another fun family celebration with our close family members who live in our area.

I've got some of what I'm cooking for the party, but I still needed some party snacks and supplies. Luckily for me, there are some really great deals at Walgreens through this Saturday (01/24), including (2) high dollar Register Reward deals that I used to stockpile some goodies while I got what I needed for our party.

I got just what I needed to round out my party supplies; we don't drink much pop here at out house. I only buy it when I'm having a get-together.

I was also able to stockpile some great items we use either every day or every week. Stockpiling saves you mucho $$ over time once you determine which products are used most by your family. When those items go on sale with coupons available to lower the total price, it's time to grab 'em!

So what are you waiting for - grab your coupons and your Walgreens Ad and January Easy Saver Catalog and go stock up for your next party!

    Kiersten: I'm glad it helped! It's not often Walgreens runs (2) high dollar Register Reward deals the same week; when they do, it's time to grab the coupons and go!
