Monday Drugstore Deals

On Monday I hit up Rite Aid on my way home from work. I decided to pick up one more of those Tiny Diner placemats. I remember spending at least $12 on one from my sister-in-law's baby registry a year ago. I figure at $2.50 a piece, I should buy a few and use 'em for baby gift toppers. Or at least have a few different gender colors on hand for when I have my ultrasound (in 18 days!).

$7.99 Complete Eye Drops
$2.49 Tiny Diner
-$2 MFQ Eye Drops (SS 5/31)
= $8.48 + tax
(And get back $7.99 SCR)

So it's really like a $0.49 placemat baby gift. Wahoo!

Has anyone else bought any other clearance baby stuff? I've been eyeing THIS in cream on the shelf. It's marked 50% but if it's ringing up at 75%, I might pick one up.

we had some of those head cradlers when logan was little...they dwarfed his head. They didn't fit him right until he was able to hold his head up by himself and by then we used a rolled up towel to cradle his head, like the hospital did when we took him home for the first time.

I didn't buy any clearance baby stuff, but I did get to CVS and buy loreal makeup (buy one get one free), and other loreal makeup and nail polish that was 75% off. We also bought 4-12 packs of diet coke (hubbys drink) for $12 (not the greatest) BUT we got some of those 3 buck back thingies, and a 5 buck back thingy for spending over $25. We split our trip into 2 purchases and we ended up saving over $40 that day, and spent a little less than that (you and your savings still put us to shame lol).

ooh a little heads up also... Max factor is no longer going to be distributed in the US (only overseas) so if you see it in the stores, I bet it will be super cheap! I haven't been able to find it anywhere and I'm disappointed, because I use max factor foundation--it's been the best to me out of all of the others I've ever used AND I am running out! *cry* (lol)

Thanks for the heads up on the head cradlers. I'm seriously overwhelmed at the amount of baby stuff out there and I have NO idea what I'm doing, so I love advice. :)

Great savings at CVS! I'm seriously jealous that you have one. But way to go with the makeup and soda! Soda can be super pricey normally. I love that you got some "Extra Care Bucks." Better watch out, you'll get hooked!

Bummer about the Max Factor! I know here I've seen it at Walmart and Kmart, but not at any drugstores. I'll have to keep my eyes open for it!
