I started off this week with “only” a $5 UP reward for Rite Aid.  No register rewards at all for Walgreens.  I had $10 + some change in my purse and I prayed that I could do this.

I have a $2.99 rebate coming to me from the toothbrush,  I have $3 in UP + rewards, and I saved $17.96 just in coupons and Rite Aid Wellness savings.
