This year has been a struggle on many fronts. I am also going to admit that I have fallen off the wagon and stop doing several things that help keep us on track. One of those is shopping at CVS regularly. I could not honestly tell you the last time I went to CVS or the last time I planned a CVS trip. So now that I have admitted that, I am going to work on getting “back in the swing of things” Luckily our stash has been a very positive thing and I have used a lot of items instead of buying. Matt did let me know that he was down to his last stick of deodorant and I actually opened our last bottle of shampoo this week. Although this does not put me in panic mode, I knew I need to start CVSing again.
I did not take any coupons with me to the store, only used the coupons that printed from the “red box”. I was aware that shampoo was on sale but not deodorant. My first stop is always the “red box” Let me tell you this trip was gold. Lily was shopping for some make up so as I was wondering around I discovered the awesome deodorant deal. I completed 3 transactions to make the most of my money. Lily did the first transaction and used a $6 coupon that had printed. She earned 5 ECB and I was able to use those.
My transaction #1 2 bottles of ELVIVE shampoo on sale 2 for $8, used 2 off 2 that printed and Lily’s 5 ECB Total $1.56 for 91% savings. Earned 4 ECB back
My transaction #2 2 sticks of Speed Stick Men’s deodorant and antiperspirant on sale for 2 for $5. Used $1 off any deodorant that printed and 4 ECB from first transaction. Paid twenty-eight cent for 100% savings. Earned 2 ECB back
My transaction #3 4 full size piece of candy, used Buy 3 get one free and $0.75 off coupon that printed, 2 ECB from previous transaction paid $1.31
Total paid for 2 bottles of shampoo, 2 sticks of deodorant and 4 pieces of candy $3.41
Yeap this is a win!
