How a couponer buys Swiffer products with RRs

Here's my story of how a frugal couponer was able to buy $55(regular price) worth of Swiffer products using RRs.
It's the 1st week of May and she has $72 in RRs. She's been wheelin and dealin, trying to do some money maker deals. She needed to buy a new Swiffer Wet jet and it is the week of 25% off Swiffer products at Walgreens. In addition, it is a RR deal, buy $10 of selected products (including swiffer products) and get $2RR back. On top of all this, there is a swiffer $10 rebate wyb $20 in refills. She decided to burn RRs to get her Wet Jet and also get $20 of Swiffer refills.
She initially bought her Wet Jet on sale for $18.36. She used the $2 man. Q and got a $2RR back, so this cost her $14.36(in RRs).
Then she bought a swiffer refill for $4.11, another for $4.71, and a febreze for $2.46(not part of swiffer rebate, but included in the RR deal), used a $ .50 man. Q for the febreze and got a $2RR back, so this cost her $8.78 (in RRs).
Her 3rd deal was swiffer refill for $4.11 x 2, and swiffer refill for $4.71, got back a $2RR for a total of $12.93(in RRs).
So now she's $38 poorer in RRs, but look at all she bought with them AND she's getting a $10 GC rebate.
She still has $34 in RRs to do her deals at WAGS.
The End
