Walgreens: It's first aid season!

This week, Walgreens had many good deals on first aid items. I guess people are outside more, playing sports and having fun, so they're more likely to get hurt and need first aid.

Although I have many first aid items in my personal care stockpile, I don't have a first aid kit to take with me wherever we go.  So when I saw the Walgreens deal to get a free first aid kit pack (with $15 in free coupons inside) with a purchase of two first aid items, I went for it.

Before I purchased the items below, I purchased two packs of Goodnites diapers for $18 total.  I paid with my flexible savings account card, and received a $3 Register Rewards, which I used in the transaction below.

2 Benadryl @ $6.49 = $12.98
(This should have been buy one, get 50% off the second, according to the ad, but that discount is not on my receipt.  I will be going back to get the refund.)
- 2 $1 off Benadryl printable coupon here or here, or in the 5/15 Smartsource insert
= $10.98, or $5.49 each

1 Walgreens first aid kit case @ $4.99
- $4.99 (free with purchase of two Johnson & Johnson first aid items)

2 Kleenex @ 2/$2.29
- 50¢/2 coupon from the April All You magazine
= $1.79 for two, or 90¢ each

1 Gain dishwashing liquid @ 99¢ (with in-ad coupon)
- $1.00 off Gain from the P&G Everyday Savings mailer
= 1¢ moneymaker

2 Softsoap body wash @ 2/$6, get $4 Register Rewards
= $3 each ($1 each after Register Rewards)

3 Scotch Magic Tape 1/2 x 450" @ $1.99 (with in-ad coupon - buy one for $1.99, get two free)
- 3 $1.00 off Magic Tape coupons
= $1.01 moneymaker

3 Royal gelatin @ 20¢ each (with in-ad coupon - filler items)

Total product cost: $18.35
Pay with three $3 Register Rewards (two from this trip and one from the previous transaction)
Total product cost after RRs: $9.35
Tax: 68¢
Total out of pocket: $10.03
Total out of pocket after I get my refund on the misrung Benadryl: $6.79
Total savings: $33.34 ($36.58 after refund)
