    Thank you! I love reading these; it helps me make a better list and reminds me of the benefits of multiple transactions! Here is my scenario, a combination of your $5 list and my shopping list:
    Transaction #1: Maalox deal, FREE, $1 +Up
    Transaction #2: Dove deal, FREE, $2 +Up
    Transaction #3: 2 Frosted Flakes for $4.44, coupon $1/1 and $3 +Up from above, OOP: $.44 plus taxes, $1 +Up
    Transaction #4: Bengay $5.99, $3/1 in-ad coupon, $2/1 coupon, $1+Up coupon = FREE
    No +Up rewards to save for next week, but I’ll only spend $.44 if I have the guts to do all these transactions!

    God bless all of you as we strive to make the best use of all the blessings He has given to us!
