notes:i added this up wrong and thought i had $30 of stuff. i was covered though, because i also had the $5/$20 on me if the cashier had rejected the $5/$30.

when you buy items from a bogo sale, the registers will accept eb/coupons for up to the total before the bogo's are deducted. so it is possible to get a negative subtotal and pay part the tax w/ eb! i'm going to try to remember to plan for that next time i buy something bogo.

i'm updating the page for the reinventing beauty magazine now that i have complete info.
