Yesterday at Walgreens

I had a great Shopping trip at Walgreens yesterday.
They actually had everything that I wanted and checking out was easy peasy.

Here's what I did:
(it took four transactions)
Transaction 1:
1 Complete Contact Solution $7.99
use $2.00/1 from 5/16 RP
Pay: $5.99 plus tax
Get back $8.00 RR

Transaction 2:
1 Goody Ouchless Head bands $2.99
6 Colgate Wave Toothbrushes $1.86 x 6 = $11.16
used 6 $.75 off any adult toothbrush 5/23 SS
used $8.00 Register Reward from previous transaction.
Paid: $1.65 plus tax
Got back $5.00 RR for Toothbrushes and $3.00 RR for head bands
Transaction 3:
Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer $7.99
1 Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Refill $4.99
Foam Alphabet and Number stickers $1.39 (clearence) filler item
used $5.00/1 from 4/11 SS
used Buy Sprayer and Get a Free Refill here (up to $4.99)
used $3.00 RR
Paid: $1.38 plus tax
Got back $2.00 RR

Transaction 4:
1 Complete Contact Solution $7.99
1 Super Glue Handitack $.55 (clearanced)
2 hair brushes $.25 each (clearanced)
use $2.00/1 from 5/16 RP
used $2.00 RR and $5.00 RR from previous transactions
Paid: $.04 plus tax
Get back $8.00 RR

The total I spent out of pocket was $9.06 plus tax and I still have an $8.00 Register Reward. So it was like I spent $1.06 for $45.55 worth of merchandise.
That's a 98% savings or like I spent around $.08 per item.

If your store has them the sale runs until Saturday.

I love it when a trip to the store goes better than I expected!
