Walgreen's has a great deal on Got2b Stylers and Viva Paper Towels...... got2get me some!!!!!

There are some great deals at Walgreens this week that with a little strategizing you can acquire for very little money out of pocket..... or OOP for those that like abbreviations......
I am starting out this week with my $10 RR left over from last week and here is my plan....... please leave me a comment and tell me what you think!
Transaction One Scenario
Buy: (1) Act Rinse$4.99, (2) Viva Paper Towels $5.99 ea and (3) Van Camp, $1.49 and 2 Got2B Stylers $10
($4.99 + $11.98 + $4.47 + $10 = $31.44 Total)
Use: (1) $1/1 Act MQ, (2) $3 Got2b MQ, (RP 2/12/12), $.50/2 Viva MQ and $1/1 Viva SQ (-$2) and Van Camp SQ (-$2.40)

$31.44 - $13.40 (MQ & SQ) = $18.04 and Redeem $10 RR from last week = 
Pay: $8.04 OOP
Get Back: (1) Act $2 RR and (1) Viva $4 RR  and (1) $5 Got2b RR ($11 RRs Total) 

Transaction Two Scenario

Buy: (2) Lever 2pks (BOGO) $2.79, (4) Niagara Starch, $1.29 ea, and 2 Baby Wipes, sale 2/$10, (3) Van Camp, $1.49 and (6) McCormick Spices, (reg $1.29 sale for $.69)
($2.79 + $5.16 + $10 +$4.47 +$4.14 = $26.56 Total) 
Use: (2) $1/1 Lever MQ, (6) $.75/1 McCormick MQ (they only ring @ -$.69; no overages allowed @ Wags), (4) $.50/1 Niagara MQ, (1) Wipes MQ found on package, (3) Van Camps SQ ($2.40)
$26.56 - $11.54 (MQ & SQ's) = $15.02 and Redeem:
(1) $2 Act RR, (1) Viva $4 RR, (1) $5 Got2b RR = (minus $11 RR)
Pay: $4.02 OOP
What will it cost me in the end...........I Will Pay:  $8.04 + $4.02 = $12.06 (plus taxes) and all these products are regularly priced @ around $75 (plus taxes)  
That’s approximately a 84% savings!
Of course I did not factor in the tax as that would be very hard to do considering all the various tax rates throughout the country .... so that may drop the figure a tiny bit..... but lets just say a 80% savings is still awesome to me!!

NOW THAT'S DiVa-Licious Style!
