~Walgreens Fun~

I feel like I am cheating on CVS because its been all about Wags the past couple weeks!  I decided to try something different this week and follow a scenario Christie came up with over at Wild For Wags . Normally I would not buy something we do not need or will eventually use, however this week I wanted to just try this out for fun and so far everything has worked exactly how Christie said it would.(And I will donate what I don’t use) I have added a few touches of my own to my transactions but I am pretty much going by what she came up with, check out her scenarios. These do take several trips unless you are willing to hold up lines and make cashiers less thrilled to check you out. I am lucky enough to have at least six different Walgreens that I pass along the week, so its nothing to me to go once a day .

*I once again lost my receipt, I have no idea how I do that but I know my total was $1.56 I am just not sure of the Reese cup price because I had to add it at the last minute because my total was in negative (pre-tax)*

I still have one more transaction to do and I will do that one tonight. I have spent more out of pocket then the scenarios at Wild For Wags because I decided to do the Reach for a second time and also had all the Chex Mix but overall I am very pleased so far!
