Plus, you'll have $7 to start off with at Walgreens next week, so your net spending was only $5.99.

I read something a few years back about a woman was a CVS shopper, but you can do this at any pharmacy with a bit of work. In the course of a year, she spent $30 out of pocket and received about $1500 worth of merchandise. Basically, she made sure that she had some of the store's money (RR's) left over at the end of each week to start the next week. 

One of my goals this year is to focus on drug store savings, so I'm going to try and add a scenario to the bottom of every post to help you get the most bang for your buck. Of course, my needs may be different than yours, but it may help you learn how to play the drugstore game.
