I am starting this week with 2 $3RR so my transactions will be to work with those.  There are a lot of freebies but little RR deals that I can find.  Shop around and see.

This post is part of the Kingdom First $5 Challenge

Walgreen's $5 Challenge (1)

Transaction 1:
1 Post Cereal (hopefully grape nuts! I love these when I am pg so I am trying to stock up for that future date… otherwise one of my siblings would love them) $1.75
Melissa’s Bargain Blog is reporting that if you buy 4 Post cereals you recieve a $3RR.   If you buy 4@ $1.75 and use 2 $2 coupons + $1/2 coupon on coupons.com (see side bar) pay $2 for all four and recieve $3RR
Use $2 coupon
3 Crest Rinses- $3/9
Use 3 $2/1 coupon from P&G (I think they had more last week)
1 Filler activity book item .33
Pay with $3RR
oop- .08+ tax (because the POST coupon is $2 off so you have an overage of .25)
Recieve $3RR

Transaction 2: Must follow the coupon order for this to work out
3 Reach toothbrushes 3/$9 
Filler item activity book .33
Use BOGO Reach Toothbrush
Use $1/1 coupon
Use 3/$3.99 coupon (will take off $5.01)
Spend .33+ tax OOP

Transaction 3:
Edit- do not do this olay scenario and Glad scenario in one transaction.  You have to send your reciepts for both rebates so make sure you break up the transactions somehow. 🙂

Total profit- $12.71

Other good idea’s

Colgate Total BOGO $2.79
Use 2 $1/1 coupons (All you + ??)
or .75/1 coupon
2/.79 or 2/1.29

Dial Body Wash Trial Size .97
$1/1 coupon (you’ll need something .3 or more) – COUPON FIXED

Gatorade G2 $5/5 with in-ad coupon
Use $0.50/1 coupon 1/10 RP
Use $1/2 coupon in $20 coupon flyer sheet in ad rack

Cleaners BOGO (so bring your cleaning coupons and see if you can score any savings!)

Thrifty Jenny came up with this PULL UP Scenario that’s pretty good 

Here is the SCJohnson $5 rebate  so if you want to do the Glade Sense and Spray 3 times, you could potentionally turn it into a nice money maker.


If I have missed anything, please drop a line!  Have fun saving!
