Did a little CVS shopping…I mean, saving!

Man it’s been so long since I have been inside a CVS that going today got my blood pumping up all over the place! I am trying to master the grocery shopping game and have been doing pretty good with getting the deals worked out and tackled with the help of some other groups out there. So today after our doctors appointment I ran quickly through the aisles of CVS and this is what I scored…

3 bottles of Suave Body Wash (thanks to our reviewers views, I had to give these a shot!)
1 bottle of Children’s Advil
1 Revlon Mascara
1 CVS Baby Powder

This is how the transaction went down:

Suave 3/$5.00
Revlon Mascara $6.49
Advil $5.79
CVS Baby Powder $1.49
——total 18.77 plus tax

Minus Coupons:
.75 Suave coupon
B1G1 Free Suave coupon (scanned at -$2.00)
1.00 off Revlon
2.00 off 10
2.00 off CVS Skincare
10.00 ECB
total due $1.12 including tax
used gift card for balance–oop -0-

Got back in ECB’s $10.79 and free CVS Ibuprofen

Total paid for all products show above after ECB’s and giftcards, etc… 33 CENTS!!!
Damn that’s good! OH, I could have done better by using an advil coupon but I left those at home!!! When I go again, I will be bringing that with as long as they are not expired!!

I can now go back and get more of the childrens advil and keep rolling my ECB’s!!!

Oh what a deal

That was sung in my best “Oh what a night” voice. Yeah, so I went shopping this weekend! I had so much fun too doing it. I got a lot of deals and I wanted to share them with someone, so lets make that someone you!

First I went to Jewel to get The Dark Knight movie tickets. See, when you purchase 10 General Mills products you get a coupon code that allows you to get two free movie tickets. Well due to cashier error, I ended up with more codes than I was supposed to get. Faulty cash register I am assuming. In any event, I was supposed to get 6 free tickets and I ended up with 10. I gave one pair to my brother, so I had 4 codes good for 8 tickets. Still a good deal for me. With all my coupons and such I ended up spending about $10.00 for 32 products and 10 movie tickets. (10 bags of chex mix, 10 bags of cheerio mix, 10 boxes of yoplait yogurt-gogurt and 2 loaves of bread.)

Then on to CVS. I ended up getting 10 bottles of Sally Hansen nail polish for free. Ended up spending more there than I wanted to, but that is ok, it doesn’t happen that often. I thought I was going to get overage but that didn’t happen. I could return the b1g1 free lipsticks! LOL

Walgreens, buy one Loreal Vive get one free, used the coupon in today’s paper for B1G1 Loreal Vive for free shampoo! πŸ™‚ YAY!!!

Better yet, I get home to enter in all my movie codes expecting to get 8 tickets to print out and instead I find out that there are no participating theaters in my area so I was given the option to search for another zip code or get a prepaid visa/debit card valued at $25.50…well, heck yeah, don’t have to ask me twice, I am snatching up that visa/debit card! I will have mailed to me $102.00 worth of Visa/Debit cards (in 7-10 days)! Not sure what they can and cannot be used for, but what ever it is, I’ll take it! πŸ™‚

It was all in all a great shopping day for me.

You just gotta LUV CVS!

The deals haven’t been all that exciting lately but I was still able to snag up some good deals yesterday. When you have a shopping addiction and a coupon addiction, it has now become a challenge for me to see exactly what I can get for the least amount of money! My best was a grocery shopping trip that totaled over $160.00 and I paid $14.00 out of my pocket! It was a proud moment for me. This trip to CVS wasn’t so bad, not the greatest I have done, but good all the same.

Here is how it went down….

This is what I got yesterday at CVS………

Covergirl eyeshadow @ 1.69
Covergirl lipstick 3 @ 2.99

Total due was $12.86 plus tax for a grand total of $13.95
Used a gift card for the balance and got back….

$23.35 in ECB’s

That means I spent a total of $9.56 on my gift card.
