Saruman, the redeemable?

Saruman can be characted as the archetpye redeemable character that is good at first, then turns evil, thenreturns to good. After Frodo lets him go, he kind of lets go of his evil ways and leaves the Shire.

I disagree. Saruman never redeems himself persay nor does he return to "good" (if he ever really was truly good which I feel is also debatable). Yes, he may be leaving the Shire but not out of goodwill towards the hobbits - Frodo has disgraced this once great wizard, and Saruman realizes he has no other choice but to leave in defeat.
