$12,372
$10,194

I'd go with $10K here.

Hopefully a sign of even better things to come.

Or Maybe Not:
  • Listerine Whitening dental rinse (32 fl oz)
  • Krusteaz Snirkerdoodle cookie mix (17.5 oz)
  • Oregon blueberries (15 oz)
  • Pantene NatureFusion moisturizing shampoo (25.4 fl oz)
  • Kern's Nectar fruit drink (11.5 fl oz)
  • Rolaids Advanced antacid tablets (60 ct)

My Arrangement:
Mailbox: Blueberries
1st Floor: Cookie mix + Shampoo
2nd Floor: Rinse + Drink
Attic: Antacid

This was kinda tough, as nothing really seemed like the obvious pick for the attic (unlike past playings). What I did here was more gut instinct than anything else.

Hope for the best...

Solution:
Mailbox: Antacids = $4.99
1st Floor: Blueberries ($4.19) + Cookie mix ($3.19) = $7.38
2nd Floor: Shampoo ($6.99) + Drink (59¢) = $7.58
Attic: Rinse = $9.99

Solution #2:
Mailbox: Blueberries = $4.19
1st Floor: Shampoo ($6.99) + Drink (59¢) = $7.58
2nd Floor: Antacids ($4.99) + Cookie mix ($3.19) = $8.18
Attic: Rinse = $9.99

My Result:
Mailbox: Blueberries = $4.19
1st Floor: Cookie mix ($3.19) + Shampoo ($6.99) = $11.18
2nd Floor: Rinse ($9.99) + Drink (59¢) = $10.58
Attic: Antacid = $4.99

The antacids had to go in one of the lower places for this to work out. >_< $10K is quite winnable, but the full hundred grand, not su much with this setup.

If we're playing this game as "Least Expen$ive," as seems to be the norm lately, the smart move would be to pick the smoker... I think.
