Coupon Mom: Last-minute gifts, sweet deals

Sweet deals make fun gifts

Walgreens: Even though Christmas is around the corner, you can still save money on last-minute gifts that everyone likes. Walgreens has boxed chocolates on sale, and you can use coupons to save more. Use the Walgreens in-ad coupon to pay $3.99 for Russell Stover Chocolates (10-to 12-ounce boxes). Hershey’s Pot of Gold Chocolates (10-ounce boxes) are on sale for $5 each when you buy two boxes. Use two of the $1 coupons from the Dec. 11 SmartSource circular to pay $4 per box. You also will get a $2 Register Rewards coupon when you buy two boxes, so your net cost will be $3 per box (regularly $8). DeMets Turtles (6.4-ounce boxes) are on sale for $3 when you buy two. Use two of the $1 coupons from the Nov. 6 SmartSource circular to pay $2 per box (regularly $3.59). Toblerone 3.52-ounce chocolate bars make great stocking stuffers and are on sale for $2 each when you buy two. Use two of the 50-cent coupons from the Nov. 13 Smartsource circular to pay $1.50 each (regularly $2.49).

Just go nuts

Emerald nuts: Walgreens has 10-ounce packages of Emerald whole cashews or 11-ounce packages of almonds on sale for $3.50 each when you buy two (regularly $3.99).

Heal a cut for less

Band-Aid: CVS has children’s Band-Aid bandages (20 to 25 count) on sale for $2.99. Use the 50-cent coupon from the July 31 SmartSource circular to pay $2.49 at the register, and get a $2 Extra Bucks reward. Your net cost will be 49 cents. Designs include “Toy Story” and Disney princess, so these could pass as a kids stocking stuffer.

Save on sweets, treats
