quick run to RA ... saved $35.82 cash OOP $0.85

we were just about out of tea and eggs so I ran up to Rite Aid to get some... no picture but here is what I got

1 gallon of Red Diamond sweet tea
1 gallon milk
1 doz eggs
2 Quantumatic dishwasher detergent dispensers
2 funnels
4 king size Reeses peanut butter cups (the kids were yelling out the window when I was driving off "GET CANDY GET CANDY" hahaha)

I used $11 + ups and paid $0.21 + $0.64 tax = $0.85 cash OOP
got $2 + ups back for the funnels
I saved $35.82

I now have $71 + ups to use tomorrow after the delivery truck brings more chips and ice cream lol

with q's the quantumatics were free and no other coupons were used. 

I LOVE being able to use my ups for everyday things I used to run to Walmart for.  Had I gone to Walmart I would have just bought the milk tea eggs and candy... It would have cost me about $12.50 ish... + tax. 
Of course I would much rather use my UPS to generate more UPS, but how nice that I dont have to use real money to buy some of the things I have to buy all the time!!!  I will easily make up those lost UPS because RA is da bomb!  :)
