by Natasha on August 28, 2010

The best part about couponing is looking at the receipt to see how much you saved. I like to think of  shopping as a game. The goal is to bring the subtotal down to the lowest possible amount. So how low can you go?

If you are new to shopping at Walgreens read this first. See the full list of Walgreen’s great deals this week here.
