Wow!! What a good week for couponing it is!! I got paid to take these items  home after  rewards and rebates .  Incredible!!  I’ve got to go back for some more
Almay (and that wasn’t even on my list!) and the Revlon Tools at Target.  They keep printing $5.00/2 catalinas.  Match that with the coupon we got this
week and they are begging us to take them home!! Hope you are loving this week too!

I keep my out of pocket to a minimum by rolling rewards from one week to the next.  I always save those rewards to buy other product that generate more rewards so I spend very little OOP.   I also split my transactions up to use rewards from one transaction on the second one.  I will give you the exact transaction I did at Walgreen’s to demonstrate how I did it.
