Walgreens 9/1

This is a pretty good week at Walgreens.  We finally have some free after Register Reward items!  My totals are not great because I bought Zyrtec for my husband and son.  Normally I would have excluded those in my total since they are meds, but the Zyrtec was on sale, I had a coupon AND it spit out a $7 RR that I used to pay for one of my other transactions.

It's likely I'll be back to Walgreens this week to take advantage of the Breathe Right strips deal a few more times.  There was a $1.50/1 Breathe Right Product on 4/11 (RP).  I had two of them.  But I won three more!!  I link up to WildForWags.com's Show Us Your Shops every week, which enters me for a giveaway each week.  Last week I won!!  As soon as I get those in the mail, I'll be headed for some money making strips!  This is a good time to point out why I don't throw away coupons until they expire.  This is not a product I would have bought for myself, but it is something that I can donate, and in the process come out ahead at the register!  That 4/11 Red Plum does not have many coupons left in it, and a few weeks ago I thought about throwing it out, now I'm glad I didn't!
