Walgreens and Walmart

Since I jumped back into my coupons a couple of weeks ago, I have made every effort to work smarter, not harder and to be much more organized and scheduled to reduce my stress levels and not burn out again. So far, so good! These are important lessons for anyone wanting to go the coupon route! Learn them now and save yourself not only time and grief, but lots of money along the way!
This week I hit Walgreen's on Monday. I was late getting there and not able to get all that I wanted, but I did alright.
 I used my left over $4 RR from last week to get all of this for just $.48. I will make money on the Finesse hair products as there is currently a mail in rebate form for $2.
If you are going to buy these things, here are the prices:
Finesse Hair products $1.99
-$1/1 Finesse= .99
Royal Gelatin 5/$1 w/in-ad coupon
No Nonsense Nylons .79 w/in-ad coupon
Christmas Gift Bag  I think these are like 5/$1 or so. There are lots of other great filler options this week!!!

I was able to go back yesterday and get the Triaminic Fever Reducer that they had been out of. I grabbed the only two that were there. Hopefully they restock before the week ends!
