I heart Wags... Here's why I only paid $0.51 {in the end, but needed $8 OPP} Let me explain!

Today I was a little late in getting to Wags {aka: Walgreens} because it took me almost all day to find some good deals. And so when I did scan those Wags ads, I found a few things that I could use that would pretty much pay me for shopping, so off running I went. So this is what I are the scenerios

Abbreviations: Wags =Walgreens, OPP = Out of Pocket, RR = Money in a coupon coming back to you not sure the exact name for RR {anyone know leave me a comment}, B1G1 = buy one get one free,

Deals I Saw:

Thermacare Heat Wrap: $2.49; get $2.49 back in RR {they are paying you back for buying it, love it and Michael could use this...totally scored...but wait it gets better}
-use $1/1 Thermacare coupon HERE
Total OOP: $1.49, get $2.49 RR
Total: $1 Money Maker!!

**Oust Air Sanatizer: B1G1
-use B1G1 coupon from 1/3 SS
Total: 2 for FREE!**

Triaminic products: buy 2 for $10; get $5 RR
-use 2 $3/1 Triaminic Thin Strips from 12/6 SS OR
-use 2 $2/1 Triaminic products from 12/6 SS OR
-use 2 $1.50/1 coupon HERE
Total OOP: $5, get $5 RR back

I use some really great blogs for all these Wag runs,  go to Kingdom First Mom and Couponing for Deals and check out all their great ideas. I used some of their's and tweeked them a little but here is what I did:

Here is MY $8 {usually should be $5} Scenario for the week of January 10th:

Transaction #1
~Buy 1 Thermacare Neck & Arm Wrap 1 ct @ $2.49 {reg price $3.99)
$1.00/1 Thermacare Printable Coupon {click on link from above to get coupon}
Total: $2.49-$1.00 {CPN}=$1.49 OPP,  then get back $2.49 RR

~Buy 2 Oust Air Sanatizer: B1G1 {in store sale, reg price $4.49 each}
-use B1G1 coupon from 1/3 SS
Total: 2 for FREE!**

Total After Coupon= $1.49 = 8.1% tax {.55}= $2.04 OPP

RRs Earned $2.49 {to use towards transaction #2, below}, made $2.45 back...score, I love when they pay me to shop}

Transactions #2 {this was the one I thought of that wasn't on her website}
Buy Triaminic 2 for $10; get $5 RR {reg price $6.49each)
-use 2 $3/1 Triaminic Thin Strips from 12/6 SS OR
-use 2 $2/1 Triaminic products from 12/6 SS OR
-use 2 $1.50/1 coupon HERE
Total OOP: $5, get $5 RR {their paying me again}

Rimmel Cosmetics are 50% off right now and some stuff is really cheap. I needed some lip gloss and they were on sale for $1.69, I forgot what reg price was but it was somewhere around $4.
Buy 2 or 1 for $1.69 each
-use 2 or 1 $1/1 Rimmel any (exp2/28/10) RP {Red Plum}-12/13/09 OR
-use 2 $1/1 Rimmel any lasting finish {exp 02/28/10)RP-12/13/09
{Note to self: only do one of these next time, their system said I had to many coupons to use so I only got to use one of these and paid sale price for the second one, I am going tomorrow to return and then buy it back with coupon, because I am ghettofrugalicious like that..LOL)
Total OPP: $0.69 after coupon.
{But I paid $2.38 because I could only use one coupon, going back tomorrow to return and buy back using the coupon to only pay $0.69}

Total Purchase: $4.88 +{8.1%tax} 1.08 = $5.96 {total savings $22.08} oh and don't forget they paid me $5 RR's for my next wags run. So essentially I only paid $.96 for all that.

So all together OPP ($5.96 + $2.04) =$8.00 exactly
Wags paid me back {$2.49 + $5.00} = $7.49 Back
Everything I got for only...................=$0.51
I essentially only paid $0.51 for both transactions. This is why I love Wags and couponing. {FYI...I don't love it more than Jesu, Jesus Rocks and is and will always be #1.

Until next time Happy Shopping and may God multiply your efforts and your pantries!!

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
