Walgreens 7/18

Yay!  I was so excited for a good week at Wags!  The last few weeks have been so lackluster that even a decent week would have looked good, but this turned out to be a better week than I thought.

Got $5 RR from Dr. Scholls!

A few notes about this:  The Pilot Pens are an awesome money maker, which is why I was able to get 2 packs of pens and tube of toothpaste for only $1 RR.  I tried several different Dr. Scholls insoles with the $5/1 Wags coupon book, and none of them worked, I later found out that the arch supports worked, but by then CR (Coupon Rival) had gotten all of them.  But luckily I was able to snag the last 2 rough skin erasers.  I don't feel bad about taking the last two...I needed 2 to do my deal, and since the arch supports were already sold out, I couldn't do 1 of each (my original plan).  However I really like the rough skin eraser, I snagged a bottle a few weeks ago for free and so I was happy to stock up on more and have Wags pay me to do it!
