Walgreens Holiday Rewards Fun Rollovers

On my way home from Minneapolis, I couldn't pass by Walgreens in Viroquoa WI.
Detamara let our puppy out and I went into try my hand at getting my Holiday rewards and seeing how far I could stretch them. I may have been able to do better, but with living in a hotel for a week with my new Granddaughter from Texas, Grandma time came first. Anyway

I am inspired by all the postings at Deal Seeking Mom and where I found many of the items here.

Idea: What do you do with all the extras? Many bargain hunters are donating them to the local shelters and food pantrys, I will give you another idea. Donate them to the disabled living in group homes as they are forced to live on very little. Being an advocate and parent of disabled kids and adults I get a unique view of how hard it is to be disabled and poor. Most of their SSI checks go to pay for their group home payments and they may have as little as $40.00 for their personal care items and spending money.
