It’s summer vacation time and we are headed to the beach for a few weeks! I think Lennox could spend most of her life at the beach if it was up to her. I love that I can get her up to my parents home on Cape Cod for a few weeks each summer, so that she can really enjoy the time near the ocean! It is one activity that we definitely don’t get to do in Texas! Last month, for her birthday, Lennox received a small beach bag from her aunt and I wanted to get it all stocked up for her trips to the beach! Buying everything for your beach bag doesn’t have to put a huge dent in your bank account – there are many ways to save! My new favorite way to gain some extra savings is to use the new Walgreens App that allows you to “clip” paperless coupons, not only Walgreen specific coupons, but manufacturer coupons as well! No more cutting out coupons from the Sunday newspaper!
When I headed to Walgreens to save on their sales and coupons for the essentials for our beach bag, I first made my list on the app and “clipped” all the coupons on my phone! It only took a few moments so you have no excuse not to save!
BEACH BAG CHECK LIST
Our Essential Beach Bag list looked something like this:
- Beach Towels
- Aloe Lotion (its inevitable someone will get sunburnt, right?)
- Wet Wipes & Anti-Bacterial Wipes (great for snack and lunchtime)
- Snacks / Drinks
- Lip SPF Moisturizer
- Beach Toy (We chose a kite!)
What are you favorite items to throw into a beach bag each summer?
The Walgreens app and paperless coupons are great coupons that can be clipped on your smartphone or the website, and then loaded onto your Balance Rewards account. When it’s time to check out – just give them your Balance Rewards card, phone number you used to sign up with, or the bar code that is displayed on your smart phone within the Walgreen’s App! Keep using that Balance Rewards card that you have too, to save even more!
When I went shopping, I had an additional $3 off my purchase from points over my last few purchases. You can also gain extra savings by “stacking” Walgreens coupons + manufacturer coupons + Balance Rewards! Instant savings are great – look and see how I saved below.
So when you are getting ready for your summer vacation or even back to school shopping, don’t forget to sign up for Balance Rewards and download the Walgreens app to clip those paperless coupons to start saving!
