Walgreens | LOTS of HOT Deals 1/2/11-1/8/11 {Saved 73%!}

Spent: $10.22 (over 4 transactions)
Saved: $27.29(with Wags sale prices, MFR coupons, and RRs)
Earned: $3.00 in RRs to use next week

One thing I really stopped doing during the last three months or so of 2010 was any drugstore deals at CVS and Walgreens (I don't have a Rite Aid in my town). 

My little stockpile of drugstore items (and by little, I mean "one shelf in my linen closet + one storage bin in the bottom of my linen closet" little) was full so there just wasn't the need.  Plus, I simply didn't have the time to follow all the drugstore deals, to clip & organize the coupons, and then to head to the stores each week.  So I just took a break from rolling those ECBs and RRs.  ;-)

I was planning on continuing that break from doing the drugstore thing because of my whole KISS plan for 2011; howevs, two things coincided this week that got me clipping my q's and zipping to Wags: 

:: One, Walgreens has some KILLER deals this week, both RR and straight coupon deals.  I mean KILLER!!  See the links at the end of this post for all the best deals.

:: Two, I needed both dishwasher detergent and my *fave* conditioner for taming my wanna-be-wavy hair.  Both were featured RR deals at Walgreens this week making it easy for me to stock up.  Yippee!

Here's how I grabbed that stash of goodies above:
