Walgreens - 5/26

I've never done Walgreen's before since I started couponing and for a first time with no advance planning, I think I did pretty good!
I am not sure what the totals were, but I saved $17.99 and spent approximately $12.00. However, that was good because my original trip was for the shaving cream and bump cream for after shave and that in itself was going to cost $8.00. So, I only spent an extra $4.00 and got approximately $20 more in merchandise.
The contact solution was 7.99 and get 7.99 RR, but I had a $2.00 coupon, so I profited $2.00 on that transaction. I used the $8 RR and paid for the shaving supplies I went to get. I bought the hair band for $2.99 and got $3.00 in RRs, which I used to buy the Icy Hot (1.99 and I had a $1 coupon), the 2 Noxema razors (B1G1 at 2.99 and I had a $2/1 coupon), and the 2 boxes of freezer pops. I was in the negative and since I had never been to Walgreen's before I did not know exactly how to work it, there was a line building up behind me, and the freezer pops were the closest thing I could grab. Wish I had had a few minutes to think and I would have been able to work it better.
I may have to start working Walgreen's just like CVS!
