2011 Walgreens 100 Dollar Challenge: Week 5

I made two trips to Walgreens this week (as evidenced by the pictures).  I was disappointed in my first trip, because they counted my store coupon in my coupon total, and I was not able to use all the RRs I had planned to use.  This was a Walgreens I do not normally visit.  I have never had trouble with "my" Walgreens in the past. 

I was able to build up my RR stash for the coming week, and I see a few potential deals in the Walgreens Ad, so I am hoping next week's percentage saved will look a lot better!

By the way, the Tom's of Maine toothpaste I bought a few weeks ago is disgusting.  Do not buy it.  It made me gag, and it went in the trash after one use.

Don't even ask about my week :( First, I had a $10RR expire b/c of the snow storm. I was going to go Tuesday, but the roads were so bad I couldn't get out. Then, I went yesterday and they didn't have anything that I was looking for :(
