My Total Cost of Diapers Spent
It's a little tricky to calculate this month expenses since I did the Rite Aid promotion for Huggies. I had to do a few transactions and I bought other things to get a better deal on huggies. So I'm just going to give you estimate cost for this month.
I bought 5 huggies jumbo pack and 1 tube of balmex = 61.74 (did 2 transactions)
Minus coupons used =18.50
I'll get back $ 25 gift card and free jumbo pack of diaper worth 11.49
=$18.24 or $3.04 per diaper.
Since I'm getting 6 Huggies Jumbo total with the free voucher of Huggies, I'll get back $5.50 for rebate from Caregivers Marketplace (for 6 huggies and 1 balmex).
TOTAL COST = $12.74 for 6 Diapers!!!!!! ($2.12/diaper)
Who could resist that deal! So I asked my mother in law to use her address to do another transaction. I know I'm not suppose to. This is the first and last time I will use her address. I also took advantage of the J&J promotion buy 50 and get back $25 GC and the free gift bag samples.
Items bought: did 6 transactions
5 jumbo huggies
1 size 4 pampers
4 banana boat sunblock sprays
3 aveeno 2.5oz lotion
2 aveeno body wash 12 oz
5 listerine 500 ml
1 oral B power toothbrush
1 children's tylenol
Total paid out of pocket : $ 88.11
But I will get back:
2 $25 Gift Cards
Gift Bag Samples
$6 Single Check Rebate ( $2 for pampers, $4 for oral B)
1 voucher of free huggies diaper
$4.50 Caregivers Marketplace.
= $60.50 Cash Back
Actual Cost of all items are = 27.61
It's little complicated how I'm going to calculate actual diaper spent since I bought other things aside from diapers. So to make it easier I'm going to count per item cost.
23 items = 1.20 each (I'm counting the free huggies as 23rd item)
= $7.20 (6 huggies)
I also bought pampers swaddlers in CVS with last week sale = after coupons and the money maker transaction that I purchased paid = 1.99 for Jumbo size 1
I also bought last week 2 huggies jumbo and 5 wipes in A&P = paid $27 but got back $20 Baby Bucks. I normally would not buy the huggies because it wasn't on sale (I did used a coupon) but I wanted to make sure I will get the Baby Bucks before it expires. (they don't roll over). Besides those baby bucks I got it from buying wipes and paying very little or free.
Wipes = 2.50 (.50 cents each)
2 Huggies = $5
I'll get back 1.50 from Caregivers Marketplace
= 3.50 for 2 packs
TOTAL SPENT : $25.43 (15 diapers)
