Grocery List Time Out: Cowboys, Cars & Indians

Usually I take a quick browse through silly vintage ads when I need a break from the grocery list mania of Wednesday mornings.  However, today my 3-year old really needed me to play "Car Town" with him, and who can say no to that face??
Your Food Lion ad will be up at naptime, but until then, here is my grocery list "Time-Out".   Notice the cowboy and Indian he has posed in a shootout.  I'm the pink car, Addie says the pink car is the mommy police.

Walgreens: Gillette/Venus RR are ROLLING!

Just a heads up to anyone in need of razors or bodywash:
Gillette Fusion & Venus Razors are on sale at Walgreens for $8.99 ~ Get $4 RR
It has been confirmed on AFullCup by MANY folks, that this RR is "ROLLING" - That means that when you earn a $4 RR from the razors, you can use it to turn around and buy more razors, and on and on and on.... (Read the thread for yourself HERE)

★Gillette Fusion Deal Idea:
Buy 1 Gillette Fusion @ $8.99
Use $4/1 from 2/7 P&G
Pay $4.99 ~ Get $4 RR Back

Buy 1 Gillette Fusion @ $8.99 + small filler
Use $4/1 Q + $4 RR
Pay 99¢ (+cost of filler) ~ Get $4 RR Back
And so on....

★Venus Deal Idea:
Buy 1 Venus Razor @ $8.99 + Olay Body Wash (any size, kind)
Use $2/1 from 2/7 P&G + FREE Olay wyb Venus from 2/7 P&G
Pay: $6.99 ~ Get $4 RR

Buy 1 Venus + Olay Body Wash + Small Filler
Use $2/1 Q + FREE Bodywash Q + $4 RR
Pay: $2.99 (+Cost of filler) ~ Get $4 RR
And so on....

If you do the Venus deal 3X, you can then submit for the $15 Olay Rebate HERE!
Makes it a Moneymaker!

(Old-Timers get going!  New couponers, read on...)

Okay now, I don't want to confuse our newbies here, so let me take a moment to explain what all the excitement is about.
As a rule, at Walgreens, you cannot use the RR earned from Product "A" to buy another Product "A".  In fact, you can't use a Register Reward earned from any product made by Manufacturer "A" to pay for any other product made by Manufacturer "A".  If you do, it will suppress the RR you were supposed to earn from your 2nd purchase.

When a Register Reward is found to be "ROLLING", however, it means that a RR earned from Gillette Razor #1 can be used to buy Gillette Razor #2 and the second Register Reward will still print out!  Hooray!  Now you don't have to buy something in-between each razor purchase - you can just get one after another and use your RR to help pay for them.

Publix: RightGuard Moneymaker!

 If your Pubilx accepts Family Dollar as a competitor, you can get Right Guard Deodorant FREE + Overage this week!   Here's how:

Right Guard is on BOGO for $2.79 (or $1.39 ea)
Use this $2/2 PRINT or PRINT
Stack WITH (2) $1/1 PDF coupon from the Family Dollar website 
(or just pick up the coupon book at your local store)
(makes it 2 FREE + $1.21 Overage!)

NOTE: This coupon is for Right Guard Extreme, and I'm not totally sure which varieties are on sale at Publix, if anyone goes today, please let us know!
*Turns out it's for Right Guard OR Right Guard Extreme!  Thanks Esther!

Publix Highlights: 2/24 - 3/2

 Here are the best deals I see at Publix this week, and there's not a ton of great ones. I am excited about the Kraft Cheese, and there are a few freebies as always! Plus, the Italian Sale continues - you can print the PDF version of the coupon pamphlet HERE.
