Walgreen's Deals - 3/13

I headed to Walgreen's on Friday after work. I decided I needed to pick up some more diapers. I called the store ahead of time to make sure that they had size 5 diapers and 3T pull ups. I was told there was plenty - 4 or 5. So, I figured it was worth the trip.

When I got there though, things began to fall apart. There were no size 5 diapers anywhere. I inquired at the check out, wondering if they had checked the stock room when I called. The woman that I asked was the woman that had checked when I called (but was not the woman I spoke to on the phone). She said, oh, I only heard her ask about the Pull-Ups. She did go and check the stock room, but alas no size 5 diapers. I decided that I would go ahead and get Pull Ups, even though my quest was for diapers. Then, as I'm sorting my coupons to check out, I realized that I had forgotten my coupon for BOGO on the Glade Lasting Impressions, a money maker that I was counting on to reduce OOP. It was about this time that my daughter started to fall apart.

Not wanting to waste another minutes, I put back the Glade and proceeded to check out. I did two transactions so I could spend the RR from the Pull-ups on the second transaction.

I got the following:
3 - Huggies Pull Ups Jumbo Packs
1 - Fructis Hairspray
1 - Ensure High Protein, 6pk
1 - Walgreen's Fiber/Calcium Tabs, 90ct (clearance)

After coupons, my total OOP was $17.93. I am submitting the Ensure Try Me Free Rebate, which will get me back $8.49. After rebate, my total cost will be $9.44. Not a bad price for all that I was able to get.

Now my debate is do I try to go back to a different Walgreen's or do a price match (without the benefit of the RR) to get the diapers that I need. I'm just not sure the hassle of driving to another Walgreen's is worth the $10 added savings, and since I know I can price match the $10, that is feeling the better use of my time. Of course, I would have my Glade coupons with me, making the diapers even cheaper. What to do, what to do?
