Some of my favorite buys this week were the Tylenol Precise, Thermacare  and Ben Gay Heat Patches.  Both my husband and I suffer from sore backs, and these really help. I love that I can buy these so cheap. I don’t think I’d be using them if I were paying full–or even sale price–for them!  I also couldn’t believe that I found my favorite snacking treat, Chex Mix, was just $0.15 at Walgreens!

I was disappointed that my CVS did not have the free candy bars. 🙁  They were $0.29, and I have plenty of free candy bars so I passed.  My Target did not have the Johnson and Johnson baby deal on the smaller sizes  nor the Desitin deal, so I was disappointed .  Even an experienced couponer has her highs and lows.  I experience the same thing on a regular basis.  Some deals work better than I thought they would, and some don’t work at all, but we still save – and have fun doing it!
