Walgreens Run for Teacher's Gifts!!

So I headed back to Walgreens today to spend my final "Super" Jingle Cash reward from last week, and to score a few inexpensive gifts for my daughter's teachers. Here's what I got...

---- Transaction #1 ----

6 Hallmark Money Holders @ $0.99 each
- $2 for 3 in-ad coupon (deducted $1.94)
- $5 RR received when you buy 6 Hallmark cards
Final Cost: 6 FREE + $1 moneymaker!!
** This one is super tricky. Apparently, some of the money holders are actually ringing up as christmas cards, so the in-ad coupon won't work on them. My suggestion is to choose cards that start with "70000" UPC code, but also have the cashier price check them and see how they ring up. They should read "H/M MONEY/HL".

Goody Hair Elastics 12 ct. @ $2
- $2 RR received
Final Cost: FREE!!

Paid with $5 Super Jingle Cash and $1.08 OOP. Got back a $5 RR and $2 RR.


---- Transaction #2 ----


Olay Total Effects Exfoliate & Replenish Body Wash @ $6.99
Olay Ultra Moisture Lotion 8.4 oz. @ $4.99
((Both are on sale Buy 1 Get 1 50% off))
- $2/1 Total Effects Body Wash from the P&G Everyday Solutions book
- FREE Lotion wyb Body Wash coupon in the 11/28 P&G (deducts 4.99)
- $2.50 for 50% off sale
- $3 RR for buying the Body Wash
Final Cost: Both FREE + $0.51 moneymaker

2 Hershey's Pot of Gold Candy Boxes @ 2 for $9
- 2) $1/1 coupons from the 12/5 SS
- $3 RR received when you buy 2
Final Cost: $2 each

Splenda with Fiber 80 ct. @ $2.99
- $2/1 coupon from the 11/7 RP
Final Cost: $0.99

2 Cinnamon Votive Candles @ $0.49 each
- 6 for $1 in-ad coupon (you don't have to buy 6!)
Final Cost: $0.17 each
** Filler items

Paid $10 in RR and $0.82 OOP. Got back a $3 RR for Olay and $3 RR for the candy boxes.


---- Transaction #3 ----

2 Bic Comfort 3 Razors @ $3.99 BOGO sale
- 2) $2/1 coupons from the 12/12 SS
Final Cost: 2 FREE
**Second coupon beeped and was adjusted down to $1.99 by cashier.

2 Hershey's Pot of Gold Candy Boxes @ 2 for $9
- 2) $1/1 coupons from the 12/5 SS
- $3 RR received when you buy 2
Final Cost: $2 each

2 Dr. Pepper 2 liters @ $0.89 with in-ad coupon

Paid $8 in RR and $0.84 OOP. Got back a $3 RR for the candy boxes.

I'll also submit for the $5 Real Simple Mail-in Rebate on the Pot of Gold chocolates for spending $15 or more. That will bring the cost of all four chocolate boxes down to just $0.75 each! My daughter is giving these to her teachers this year.

So I basically got everything in the picture + 2 sodas (not pictured) for just $4.74 and I only paid a total of $2.74 out of pocket!
