But if I tell him I don't want him to go, he gets his feelings hurt and gets his rear up on his shoulders. Men's feelings are so sensitive and delicate.
Anyway, the first CVS shop went well, quick, but I pretty much had a plan when I went in, and amazingly the plan worked out.
But I didn't have a plan for Walgreens, had no idea what would be in stock or not, and knew I had a bunch of $3.00 and $3.50 RRs to try to roll on $10.00, $7.99, and $1.00 items. So I warned him before I went in that I may be awhile...I even almost sent him across the street for biscuits at Bojangles. Figured it would take me forever to even figure out how to buy everything, and lord only knew how many transactions it would take.
Somehow I went in there and found everything I needed - Vitamins, Complete, and Crayons - and the total, after my $1.00 Alive and $1.00 Complete coupons came up to $16.99. I had $33.00 worth of RRs, so two groups of $16.50. Don't think I could have gotten it any closer without going over than that.
Of course I had (7) RRs and only (3) items, so I grabbed 4 packs of the pencils at .09 each.
I was in and out of there in about 15 minutes. WoW!
Transaction 1 & 2:
$10.00 Alive Vitamins
$ 7.99 Complete Solution
$ 1.00 Crayolies
$ .09 Pencils x 4
-1.00 Alive IP
-1.00 Complete Peelie
Total $0.85 + 1.35 tax = $2.20 OOP
Rec'd $10.00 Alive, $8.00 Complete, $1.00 Crayons
Final Total $0.30 Profit ($0.60 total)
Not the best shop, but not the worst by far. Good news is I got all those RRs expiring today rolled. Bad news is now I have $10.00, $8.00, and $1.00 RRs to try to roll later. I hope next week or the next they have some lower cost RR deals.
