notes:i use excedrin for headaches and was out. i've been doing w/out waiting for a way to get them free, but i finally decided 5 boxes for $3 was good enough. :)

technically the sobe coupon should have been entered for $.10 less because of the max value.

don't forget, the gain coupons state "limit of 4 like coupons in same shopping trip."
