Stephanie and I went to a Walgreens tonight to use up my last few Almay coupons. I had bought some makeup removers earlier in the week, but I knew she would want to pick some specific items she needed. What we didn’t expect to find was an absolute clearance gold mine! FYI – two of those Almay eye shadows are open because she was in a hurry to try a few while I was trying to organize the picture.

  2. Aymet Hashmi says

    my walgreens doesn’t have the I color eye shadow, the manga mascara and the voluminous butterfly mascara on clearance, only the true foundation compact, and I think they hided all Walgreens booklet because said they run out of it. I don’t think so.

      You can clip the store coupons to your Walgreens card at the Walgreens web site if you have set up your account over there.
