I have read "FILLERS" in some of your post. What do you mean by use this item as FIllers????

I just added this to the Vocabulary list too:
Filler-Cheap items (under $1) used to allow you to have 1:1 Coupon to Item ratio.

You can't have more coupons than items--this is common at Walgreens since their RR's are considered a Q's. If you are buying 1 Item, using a coupon and paying for it using a RR, you will get a "beep" at the register. You have one item, but 2 Q's. Buy a cheap filler so that you you will have 2 items and 2 Q's.
