    You need the filler item because you can’t have more coupons then you do items. The RR also count as a coupon and some coupons (I haven’t figured out yet if they all do.) for things that are for example 2/$4 the coupon will ‘attach’ to both items. So basically if you have 5 coupons you need 5 items.
