It was a beautiful fall morning in South Florida today, so my little one and I decided to do some quick shopping before heading to the park. That is I decided on the shopping, and my son decided on the park. The first stop was CVS for some cheap jelly, and then we headed to Walgreens to get some cheap and free groceries. 
I have been craving pistachio nuts for the past week or so, but unfortunately I did not find any cheap pistachio nuts at Aldi. After comparing prices, Walgreens had the best price, and I used register rewards to pay for them. I am also very excited about the corn muffin mixes, as I use these to make Zucchini pancakes and more.
I know a lot of people roll their Walgreens Register Rewards in the same way that I roll CVS Extra Bucks, but I make a point of spending my Register when I get them, because they always expire on me, since I do not want to go to Walgreens very often.
