I went to Walgreens with $117.00 RRs I have to spend/roll this week, and no plan.  Or, not much of a plan. Actually, not too bad of a plan - roll what I could, and buy what I need/use.

Remember the Halloween mellocreme candy and candy corn I stocked up on at Halloween? It's .50¢ for the larger bag and .35¢ for the smaller bags now.  I got some more as fillers. 

I thought there would be enough fillers with all the pork&beans, Tuf bags, eggs, and sugar I planned to get, but my RR amounts were low, like $1.50, $2.00, $2.75, so I kept having to add items, then I'd have to add another RR, and so on. 

My Roll item was the Dark & Lovely hair relaxer. $6.99, get $5.00 RR. I had $2.00 IP coupons for the Optimum Care which made these FARR.  The BA had $2.00 tearpad q's for the purple box, so I got some of those, too. 

I had got a raincheck for the $10 personal blender during Black Friday and found it at another store today. So I spent (2) $5.00 RRs from the Dark & Lovely on it. 

I also spent on my (2) boxes of Christmas photo cards at $8.70 each (after 33% savings code, before tax). 

The Nestle Candy singles are 3/$1.50, and there's a .75/3 IVC in the Dec booklet, making it .75/3 cost. 
I have tearpad coupons I found at Kroger many moons ago for Buy 2, Get 1 free. 
The first store took off the limit of 79¢ as stated on the coupon, making mine free +

(Totals later)

Where did you get the coupon the the relaxers?

It was on the Softsheen-Carson website for awhile, but is no longer available for printing.

If you want a copy of the PDF file, email me at missi at bellsouth dot net.

Or I know one of my BA's had several tearpad coupons for the Optimum Care and the Dark&Lovely behind her counter. She used them instead because she couldn't get my printed coupon to scan and couldn't see the numbers to type them in very well.
