Large box of taquitos

Got Back: $2.50 Catalina for buying granola bars
At Walgreens I purchased:
2 6 oz. boxes Chips Ahoy
8 cans Progresso soup
2 boxes Nutri-Grain bars
3 6 oz. bottles NyQuil

I did three transactions at Walgreens. They have a Register Reward deal running all month for Vicks products. Spend $20.00 and get a $10.00 RR. I had coupons for $1.50 off each Vicks product and I had coupons for a free box of Puffs for every 2 Vicks I bought.
So....I purchased $20 worth of Vicks and then used my $10.00 RR to buy the soup. The soup also had a RR (spend $10.00 and get a $3.00 RR). I used the $3.00 RR from the soup to buy the Nutri-Grain bars (on sale 2/$5.00) which had a $2.00 RR.
I also purchased two boxes of the Chips Ahoy for $.99 each. That generated a $2.00 RR.
We are not a house full of sickies (at least physically), but these kinds of medicines are good to have on hand. I always check expiration dates and buy what has the longest shelf life.
At Albertsons I purchased:
Total Spent: $7.97
Grand Total Spent: $46.89
Grand Total in Catalinas/RR received: $13.00
And....it kept me off the streets!
