Being Frugal...

I've discovered that being frugal is great but it also has it's funny side!  We use alot of Resolve (Spray 'n' Wash) in our house.  When I ran out, DH went to Walmart to get some more...not a single one on the shelves!  This wasn't good as DH was running out of clean shirts. 

I decided to go across the street and get one (just one) bottle at Rite Aid.  I knew I'd be paying more, but really needed to do some laundry.  Lo, and behold, Resolve was on sale!  Normally at Walmart, I pay $2.49-$2.79 (can't remember for sure).  Rite Aid is normally $3.99; sale price was $2.00.  That's really great 'cause it's even less than WM. 

When I looked at the bottles, I saw .65 cents off coupons right on the bottles.  There were only two bottles in stock...I bought them both.  $1.35 each for 30oz. bottles (normally they are 22oz.) is great.

Later this week, DH got a rain check for ten more; I got a rain check for 10 more; my SIL got a rain check (for us) for 8; my FIL got a rain check for 4.  Today, DH went across the street to buy some more since we knew the delivery truck had been there yesterday.  When I looked in the laundry room this morning, I have a full case of Resolve.  I have a feeling that I'm going to have Resolve stored in all sorts of places around the house.  Our house is now the kingdom of Resolve!

Total savings:
46 bottles @ $1.14 less each = $52.44
30 oz instead of 22 oz = 368 oz for free!
