Walgreens: Toilet paper, tissues, and razors

I got some pretty good deals at Walgreens today. My out-of-pocket costs were a little higher than normal, but I got things I really need - toilet paper and tissues. I also did a moneymaker on razors - I don't use this particular type, so I'll be donating them to a homeless shelter.

I had wanted to do the Splenda deal again, but of course they were all out of it.  And when I got to the register and pulled out the coupons, the person behind me said, "Hey, a couponer!  I watched that show!"  And the person behind him said, "Yeah, I watched it, too!"  I just smiled.

Here's what I got:

2 Cottonelle 12-pack @ $5.00 = $10.00, receive $3 RR
-2 50¢ Cottonelle printable coupons
- $1 off Walgreens Cottonelle coupon from the May savings book found in-store (takes off $2)
= $7, or $3.50 each ($2 each after coupons and RRs)

1 Puffs 56 ct @ 99¢ (with in-ad coupon)
- 50¢ off Puffs coupon from the P&G Brand Sampler mailer
= 49¢

1 Noxzema razors 4-pack @ $3.99, receive $3 RR
- $2 off Noxzema razors coupon from the 5/1 RedPlum insert
= $1.99 ($1.01 moneymaker after coupons and RRs)

1 Geisha mushrooms @ 50¢ (with in-ad coupon) (extra item)

Total before RRs: $9.98
Paid with $4 RR from this trip
Total after RRs: $5.98
Tax: 90¢
Total out of pocket: $6.88
Received $6 RRs
Saved: $12.99

My Walgreen's told me they ran out of Splenda the very first day of the sale since the $3 coupons were out that had to be changed at the register to $2.99 off. They informed me I could get a rain check, but it wouldn't be in until this next week good, the coupon expires tomorrow (today since it's after midnight now)
The manager told me she checked and that all warehouses were bare on the Splenda.
I'm going to go ahead and buy it at my grocery store where it's on sale for $4.29 and get back the $3 catalina for buying 2.
We do use the stuff as hubby can't have sugar.

How did you know that you got a RR for the Cottonelle? It is not listed in my store ad?

I know because the RR says Cottonelle on it. It's a monthly RR deal, which sometimes aren't shown in the weekly ad. That deal runs until 5/15.

Interesting . . . how do you find out what all is listed on the monthly RR deals? I am new to the whole WalGreens savings. I did get the RR for the Cottonelle, but only b/c I saw that u had listed that you would recieve a RR otherwise I would not have known, so thanks for all u do.

I am not sure where they are posted officially. I find the monthly deals on message boards and on some of the other blogs that post weekly deals. Here is a list of the May monthly Register Rewards deals from the message board We Use Coupons - I don't know how accurate it is.

I wonder if my walgreens will have any of these left. I need to go spend my $5 RR. The cottonelle scenario looks good to me. Great job as always!
