Walgreens & Free Press...woohoo!

Today was definitely a blog-worthy day!!! The story goes a little something like this...
Sara & I went to the Spring Home & Garden show at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi and not only did I get the tickets free (courtesy of Quicken Loans), I also ended up getting a great deal on a subscription of the Detroit Free Press....3 month subscription (daily) for ONLY $1!!! They were running a special for $26 and a couple of reps were selling it and giving you a $20 Home Depot card for subscribing...making the cost of the subscription $6. And can you believe it...I wasn't going to do it. Then as I was walking away the girl offered it to me for $1!!!...I paid $26 and she gave me $5 in cash and a $20 gift card to Home Depot. SCORE!!!
Then, after the show I headed to Walgreens to get some fabulous deals. Little did I know that the great deals pictured above would only cost me $.01....that's ONE PENNY!!! Yippee!!! The cashier commented that she had never seen a total that low before :)
Here's what I got:
  • 100 tealights
  • 3 boxes of Kleenex
  • drain cleaner
  • 2 Sunlight dish soaps
  • 2 Aquafresh toothpastes
  • toothbrush
  • 2 candle holders

It should have cost $30.85, but with Walgreen's sale prices, Walgreens & manufacturers coupons ($10.69) and register rewards ($14) it only cost $.01!!!
