Rite Aid: My Trip Plan 1/25-1/31

Wish me luck!  That’s all I can say.  I’m taking the tasmanians to Rite Aid with me today – at the height of flu season!  My son is well trained at this point.  He won’t touch anything and will all but flip his lid if he hears someone sneeze or cough.  He’s like Pavlov’s dog….a couple of nasty illnesses have solidified the connection between touching things and disease acquisition.  No further reminders are necessary.  My daughter, on the other hand, thinks she descended from the fairies and is therefore immune to all of the bad things in this world.  If she sees a Barbie, it will speak to her and my girlie will not be able to ignore her voice.  I just hope Barbie’s microbe-loving transportation vehicle won’t take us to Germville.  Gah.  Envision a Purell mini-bath in the van and a lot of “Don’t touch your face!” getting there because that’s exactly what will happen.  I kid.  A little.  Only a little.

So, the reason I’m braving the pathogens (and the cold) is that there are some good deals at Rite Aid this week.  I’m in pretty rough shape on the Pantene front and a stockpile of DiGiorno would be nice.  A couple of boxes of cereal and a gallon of milk won’t hurt either.  What does hurt?  I lost my 20% gold discount this year.  That has inspired me to make sure I spend enough to get it back next year.  Between having a decent stockpile of items and diverting funds to moving expenses, eating healthier, and last year’s vacations, I just didn’t coupon at the level I had in the past.  We didn’t need very much.  Now my stockpile is shrinking, so it’s time to bump things back up a bit.  Of course, I’ll share my trip plans and finds with you as I go along with my spending total as time permits.

Now, I already have around $40 spent (maybe more?) in January.  Since we moved, Rite Aid has become the closest drugstore, so it gets all of our business whereas we went to CVS last year.  We’ve needed Claritin for my son and a couple of other miscellaneous items, so I’m a little ahead of the game.  With $960ish still left to spend, there’s a lot of room for you to follow along.  I’ll toss in the week’s best deals that’ll help you mix and match your trip to best fit your needs.

OK, here’s my plan for this week! I do not expect this to go off without a hitch because I don’t know a Rite Aid anywhere around here that’ll have 6 DiGiorno pizzas.  I’m hopeful, though.  We’ve got about 10 Rite Aid’s in a 5 mile radius, so I feel pretty confident that I might be able to pull that deal off either all at once or by breaking it down.  I’ll also likely be doing these all at once vs. rolling my UP’s throughout the week like I tend to do in the warmer months.  I’ll hold them and use them toward next week’s purchases.
