You do so good. When I get home I am planning on trying the $100 challenge. My biggest problem is either there are too many great deals and I want them all or like the past 2 weeks there hasn't been anything I want/need. I had some expiring rewards and nothing to get more so I bought candy to take to our family reunion!

Jen, I know what you mean! I only purchased the Head and Shoulders because I know my nephew uses it, so I'll pass it along to him. We have enough shampoo and toothpaste for the next year or so. I was excited about the deodorant deal and looking forward to some bodywash this week! I just really like the game though - it's fun to come home with a bag full of stuff that only cost a little over 2 dollars!
