WAGs: $87.12 for $0.59 OOP!

I know I'm cutting it close considering tomorrow is the end of the sale week, but this time it was actually on purpose.  Since Walgreens started making a habit of sending out $/$$ on Thursday afternoon, I always wait until Friday to go to Walgreens (if I'm going at all) just to be sure that I won't miss any $/$$ coupons that might be issued.  This week it looks like the free 8x10 is all that Walgreens is giving out, so I quickly put together two transactions that I will making tonight. 

Transaction #1
Buy 8 Schick Quattro Disposable Razor ($5.99 each): $47.92
Buy 1 Glade Wisp Candle: $5.99
Buy 2 Glade scented oil candle holder ($3.99 each): $7.98
Buy 2 Glade glass scents ($2.50 each): $5.00
Buy 2 Hefty OneZip bags ($3.29 each): $6.58
Buy 2 Oral-B CrossAction Power Toothbrush ($5.99 each): $11.98
Buy 1 Bounty paper towels 138ct (3/$5): $1.67
Subtotal: $87.12
Use 8 $3/1 Schick ESR coupon pg. 11 (-$24.00)
Use B1G1 Hefty in-ad coupon pg. 5 (-$3.29)
Use 4 B1G1 Schick mfg coupon (-$23.96)
Use $3/1 Glade wisp mfg coupon (-$3.00)
Use B1G1 Glade candle mfg coupon (-$3.99)
Use $2/1 Glade candle mfg coupon (-$2.00)
Use B1G1 Glade glass scents mfg coupon (-$2.50)
Use $0.55/1 Hefty mfg coupon (-$0.55)
Use 1 B1G1 Oral B mfg coupon (-$5.99)
Use 1 $0.25/1 Bounty mfg coupon (-$0.25)
Grand total: $17.59 (use $8 + $5 + $4 RRs)
OOP: $0.59 + tax
RRs returned: $2.00 (Oral-B)
Rebates: $2.00 (#36 Glade wisp)

Transaction #2
Buy 2 Oral-B CrossAction Power Toothbrush ($5.99 each): $11.98
Subtotal: $11.98
Use 1 B1G1 Oral B mfg coupon (-$5.99)
Grand Total: $5.99 (use $5 RR)
OOP: $0.99 + tax
RRs returned: $2.00 (Oral-B)

Total paid on GC: $1.58 + tax
RR left for next time: $4.00
Rebates total: $2.00

Honestly, I could have done better since I'm not making money off anything and I actually have to pay for certain stuff.  BUT, I have $22 in RRs that are expiring TODAY that I need to get rid of.  I got them during the last DD day.  In that last transaction I paid $39.59 on my GC and got back $34.46 in rebates.  So technically, I paid a grand $5 for over $100 of stuff and $22 of RRs to use. 

I will report back on how I did!  I'm a bit nervous that my huge first transaction won't pan out, especially since I'm aiming to buy 8 razors, but there are 3 Walgreens that are relatively close to each other so I'm not too worried.
