Rite Aid Challenge-Week 4

So, I guess this would officially be my last week in this challenge.  I am kind of bummed because I really enjoy sharing my savings with you!  In fact, I will probably continue to do so just because!  :) Actually, I have one more week!!  :)  I just looked and I started the challenge on the 22nd of January!  Yeah because next week will be a fun diaper week!  This week was okay at Rite Aid.  Definitely not as good as last week, but not too bad.  A couple of good learning lessons (i.e. make sure to read the small print on the ad, make sure to grab the coupon for the right item, etc.).  Every time I go out to do this, it seems like there is something I learn.  This is a good thing.  It will help me teach others and help me so that I can be better prepared when I go, making life easier for all involved.  :)

Anyway....Here is the "loot" I scored this week:
