Once again, I was unprepared for my Wags shop this week. I went in knowing I wanted the probiotic, and a vague idea of how to roll the RR's.

The original vague idea was to buy the probiotic for $7.00 (with $3.00 IP coupon) and get $10.00 RR.
Then spend the $10.00 on the Orange-To-Go drink mix and either Burt's Bees cough drops or Super Poligrip.
Well, they didn't have any Burts Bees, and turned out I had a coupon for $1.00 off the Super Poligrip, making me $1.01 below what I needed to spend to be able to use my $10.00 RR. So I got sandwich baggies, with IVC for $1.19 (or only 18¢ per box after $1.00 profit on Super Poligrip).

But then I had an $8.00 and a $2.00 RR, and another bottle of probiotic was going to be $7.00 after coupon, but then I needed a filler to be able to use a coupon and an RR, so I was looking for other FARR items without a coupon like the Melatonin, then I realized I could get the razors and Nivea lip stuff free after RR with the Super Poligrip profit.

But how to make all that work?

Probably I could have done better had I not been trying to do it on the fly, but I guess I didn't do as badly as I'd feared.

I spent $20.36 cash including tax, but have $15.00 RRs left, so everything only cost me $5.36 in the end.
