I finally made it to Rite-Aid last night! I prepared for my shop pretty quickly this week, however, it took me over 3 hours to shop last night. I just wasn't on my game. I had several things going against me.
I was tired.
I was sick.
I was sleepy from my allergy medicine.
I was walking down the aisles throwing things into my cart and about an hour into my shop I started to feel pretty crummy. I didn't realize when I started the shop that I was getting sick. I really wanted to just quit and go home but I couldn't fathom going back and putting everything away so I decided to plow forward. I was having a very difficult time doing my calculations (thank heavens for calculators.....I don't know how I could live without mine). I'm totally shocked that I made it through my shops last night. I was literally there until they closed at 11:00pm.
Anyway, I ended up doing pretty well despite my freaky state of mind. I paid very little out of pocket and I made about $25 in UP Rewards so it was a good shop. I came home and unloaded my stuff and snapped a picture and went to bed (insert more medications).
Feeling a little better this morning.....

NOTE:I'll be taking back 3 of the Revlon nail care items since they did not generate UP Rewards (limit of 1 for this deal).
NOTE: I have a new category called "FILLER ITEMS." These are things that I threw in to bring my balance to $25 so that I could use a $5/25 and buy the things that I want/need. I also threw in filler items so that I could use an UP Reward (sometimes I miscalculate and my UP Reward beeps because it has been applied to tax and I have to throw in something so that I can use it).
NOTE: If you need deodorant then the Mitchum is B1G1 50% off. Here is a scenario for FREE deodorant:

NOTE: Just found out that the Benefiber rebate is a limit of 3. I saved another $4 so I re-adjusted my totals.
