I was just so excited to get back to Walgreens for this week's deals. I had many Register Rewards to use for my transactions. I split my items up into different transactions so I can roll over my Register Rewards (RR) and pay as little as possible out of pocket.

Transaction #1
Crayola Washable Markers, 8 ct. - $2
Used $2 from last weeks RR
Final Price = FREE and paid only .16¢ tax
Got back a $2 RR for the markers

Transaction #2
Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner - 2/$7
Goody Colour Collection Snap Clips, 6ct - $2
Used (2) FREE Pantene Coupons that came in the mail
Used the $2 Crayola RR from previous transaction
Final Price = FREE and only paid .72¢ tax
Got back a $2 RR for the Pantene wyb 2 and a $2 RR from the Goody clips

Transaction #3
2 Cottonelle 12 packs of toilet paper - $5 each
6 Wexford Erasers, 2 pack - .29¢ each after in ad coupon
(used as filler items to be able to use all my RR to pay for this order)
Used (1) $1/1 Cottonelle coupon from Walgreens August coupon book
(will take off $2 for the 2 packs)
Used (2) $1.00 Cottonelle coupons from 7/17 SS
Used in-ad coupon for the erasers
Used $1 RR & $1.50 RR from last week's purchase and used $2 Goody RR from previous transaction
Final Price = .66¢ and paid .89¢ tax = $1.55
Got back $3.50 RR wyb 2 (Sun 7/31 only!)

Transaction #4
1 Oral-B Advantage Toothbrush - $3 each
4 Coffeemate Creamers - 2/$3
(I was supposed to buy 2 Advantage toothbrushes, but they didn't have 2, so I got another Oral-B toothbrush but it turned out to be the wrong one for the deal and they had to refund the order and redo it again. I'm not sure what happened, but the cashier knew exactly what she was doing and somehow I got money back, which I'm not sure how that worked out. She substituted the Oral-B flossers for the Advantage toothbrush because they only had 1 left. I said I didn't have a coupon for the flossers. She said it was okay and she would take the Oral-B toothbrush coupon for the flossers.)
Used (2) $2 Oral-B Advantage toothbrush coupons from 7/3 P&G (Expired 7/31)
Used (4) $1.00 Coffeemate printable coupon (no longer available)
Used (1) $1/2 coupon from Walgreens August coupon book
(will take off for all 4 with one coupon)
Used $3.50 RR from Cottonelle purchase
Final total = .77¢ but then the cashier (who is also the assistant manager) did the refund of the wrong toothbrush and gave me $1.60 in change.
Got back a $2 RR for the toothbrush and flossers purchase (I think it was supposed to be a $3 RR but I'm not going to make a big deal).

So all in all I ended up paying $1.60 out of pocket and had a savings of $56.40! And also got a $2 RR to use on my next trip.
