Rite Aid Trip - $73 for the cost of sales tax

Today was the day I took the plunge and headed to Rite Aid to "do the coupon deals" for the first time! Last week, I received a $25 Rite Aid gift card for a transferred prescription. After seeing the awesome deals at Rite Aid this week, I enlisted the help of my friend, Renae, of Madame Deals, in putting together my first trip.

Fortunately, everything was in stock and my two transactions ran smoothly. Here's what I did:

Hmmm, I think your hubby may be upset with me for adding another store for you to frequent! I do love Rite Aid. Especially becuase they almost always have a $5/$25 or a $3/$15 coupon out. It makes it wasy to get items for free or super cheap.
