Walgreens fun 11-28

November 28, 2009 at 10:11 pm 1 comment

I ran to Walgreens tonight to grab some more items for the Christmas collection we are doing at work.  We are “adopting” seniors at Truman Medical Center and helping make Christmas a bit brighter for those without families.

All of the residents ask for basic care items, and then other small gifts on top of that.  My co-worker asked me to “use my Walgreens powers for good” and see if I couldn’t get the hygiene items for next to nothing so that we could spend our money on getting the residents the other things they wanted.  I very gladly accepted the challenge.  My $20 “donation” should be able to provide almost all of the items we need!  I will take some pics & post about the donations later.

This is over 6 transactions and 3 store trips:

2 Johnson’s Soft Wash bodywash
2 Triaminic allergy medicines
4 Theraflu
4 Almay foundations
2 Almay mascaras
2 Almay eyeshadows
2 Dove deodorants
2 Right Guard deodorants
1 Aquafresh toothpaste
1 Airborne powder packet (filler)
5 treat sacks (fillers)
3 holiday pencils (fillers)
4 votive candles (DH wanted these 🙂 )

I started the night out with $30 in RR, and used them along with $8.12 in cash.  I ended the night with $40 RR, so overall this was a money maker of $1.88!
