Walgreens 100 Dollar Challenge: Week 6


I skipped week 5.  I could not justify purchasing anything, because I did not have good coupon match-ups, and there were not very many good RR deals going.  I considered using the $5.00 coupon for Neutragena and doing the rebate that they had going, but I could not justify that either.  After looking at the product, I realized it was something I would never use.  Perhaps I could have given it to someone else...but I would still have to front that money out-of-pocket. 

On to this week.  I did two transactions today.  I spent more out of pocket than I wanted, but I built up my dwindling RR stash!

Oh, and my store wouldn't let me make $$$ on the pens :(

Good job! I have to say I am so jealous of your Dr. Scholl's deals. I have gone every day this week (a bit obsessive, I know, but it is so close) and they have been out every single day...even Sunday. Drives me crazy. I actually really want the skin eraser for my feet, but don't think it will happen. Anyway, I am thinking about starting the Walgreens Challenge, too!
