Walgreen's Balance Points {sigh}

OK. The new Balance Rewards card/program has started at Walgreen's. This is to help you understand it a little better. Keep in mind that this is a NEW program for all of us and we are kind of learning as we go.   First of all, you need a card.  You can sign up online HERE or get it at the store. There is even a mobile phone application. This card is needed get the sale prices at the register and to use Walgreen's store coupons.   Now, you might want to know what you earn. Points that add up to money.   Keep in mind that they are STILL doing SOME Register Reward Deals. There simply aren't as many as we are used to. From now on, some "freebies" will be listed, considering how many "points" you might earn off of them and their rough, equivalent value. Example: an item that gives you 500 points is similar to $.50 in value. If it was $1.50 and you get 500 points, you used a $1.00 coupon, the item would be FREE after all is said and done. (You sti

Frugal Friday: Thinking Out Of The Box To Shop

Miss Sarah is in ballet I know we will need new shoes, tights, etc. So, it can be a matter of how to work the deals, to get what you know you are already going to buy, to save money for your family's budget. Here is a great example. The WHA Public Auction had certificates for Rosey Cheeks - $20.00 value. When you over bid, you get bonus certificates! This year it was a $5.00 Taco Bell and a $5.00 Pizza Hut coupon. SO, it makes sense to bid just one dollar over and get the bonuses. I got TWO certificates for $21 -- which I was going to have to spend on new shoes and tights anyway. They gave me $20 back in the food certificates, so that means we were $18 ahead! Now, stack the Rosey Cheeks gift certificate with the Bucky Book Coupon of theirs -- Now, my $42 is really worth $70!   Shoes, tights, and maybe a new leotard are in her future... maybe something fun for her hair too. :)   As for the Pizza Hut coupons -- They have a school reading pro
