My CVS plan for tomorrow

Well, some of you are asking that I show you my plan for how I will save my money, so here is my attempt. I will visit CVS in the morning and I hope to get all of these deals:

Gillette Fusion Razors are on sale for $9.79. They have a $5 ECB and I have a coupon from the PG 8/1 for $4. So, this will be $0.79

CVS also has an offer where when you buy $25 (before coupons) worth of specific products (on front of sunday flyer), you get a free 8pk of Bounty paper towels. Here is what I am going to do to get this deal:

*Dawn is on sale for $0.97. I have a $1 coupon from the PG home mailer so my total will be an $0.03 overage.
*Charmin 16pk toilet paper on sale for $9.99. I have a coupon from a home mailer for $1.00, making it $8.99
*Pampers Diapers are $9.99. I have a coupon from a home mailer from Pampers for $3.00 off, making them $6.99
*Tide is on sale for $5.94. I have a coupon from PG 8/1 for $1.00 off, making it $4.94 for 40 loads

SO, all of that (before coupons) = $26.89, which means I will get the Bounty, worth $7.99 for FREE! Also, because you can scan in the Bounty FIRST, I can also use a $1.00 coupon that I got from a home mailer for the Bounty, giving me a $1.00 overage on the Bounty.

The next thing I am going to get is a pack of Pamper Wipes costing $3.49. I have a coupon that was on another wipes container worth $1.00. CVS also had a coupon a couple of weeks back for $4 off when you buy diapers AND wipes, so since I am buying both, I will get the wipes for an overage of $1.50.

SOBE's are on sale B1G1 free. I have a coupon from their website for B1G1 free. That will cancel each of them out making them both FREE.

Revlon has their stuff on sale B1G1 1/2 off. I am going to get some mascara worth $7.50 and use a $1 coupon from the 7/11 SS and an eyelash curler worth $5.99 and use another $1 coupon from same flyer. The curler will be $3 after the 1/2 off and after the two $1 coupons, I will get them both for $8.50. Still seems like a lot but I need them both.

Finally, because I am signed up to receive emails from CVS, I got a $5/$30 purchase in my email this week.

My total before that coupon will be: $27.68. Then minus the coupon, my grand total will be: $22.68!!

So, for $22.68, I will get:

1 180 ct Pampers Wipes
1 30 ct Pampers Diapers
Revlon Mascara
Revlon Eyelash curler
1 10.3 oz. Dawn dish soap
1 8pk Bounty Paper Towel
1 16pk Charmin Toilet paper
1 Gillette Fusion Razor
1 40 load Tide

I'll let you know tomorrow how well I did!

CVS Trip

Although I didn't get much today.....I got some good deals. I had a coupon for $5 off a $30 purchase after coupons and before ECB's.

CVS had Coke products on sale $13/4, and then you got one free. So...basically, $13/5 making them only $2.60 per 12 pack.

The Diet Mt. Dews were on sale last week for $0.88, but they forgot to take down the sign, so I got them for that price this week. I bought three for a total of $2.64

I had bought enough of the Mt. Dew to bring me over my $30 limit. So, I "applied" my $5 toward the sodas, basically making the Mt. Dews all free and bringing the total of my Coke products down to $10.64 for 5 packs, or only $2.13 each....CAN'T BEAT THAT!!

The CVS pantyliners were on sale $1/2 with a $1 ECB if you bought two....making them both FREE

The Huggies were on sale for $8.99 with a $3 ECB. I also had a coupon for $1.50, making them $4.49. This isn't an exceptional deal, but I will show you how I made it a better deal in a second.

I got this Green Tea that was $7.99 with a $7.99 ECB plus a $2 online printable coupon, making it an OVERAGE of $2.00 that I had an overage on that, I "applied" it toward my diapers making them $2.49 or about $0.09 each.

The last thing I got was two packs of Dentene gum. They were a new flavor, so I was interested in trying them. They were $1.29 each, with a $1.00 coupon for each, making them a total of $0.58 for both.

What is impressive, is that my goal was to make it to $30 after coupons but before ECB's. That amount equaled: $30.70!!

However, my grand total for all the stuff up top was only: $13.71

CVS Trip

So, I have been out of it the last few weeks, but I did make it to CVS last night. Although I do not have a picture, here is what I got:

Neutrogena Facial Cream for $34.99. I printed a coupon from their website for $5 off. They are also offering a full purchase price MIR this week only, so my total for this was an OVERAGE of $5.

I also got an electric Gilette Fusion razor. It was on sale for $9.97 with a $5 ECB. I also had a $4 coupon from the PG 6/6. My total was $0.97 Normally, this is an item I would wait to get unless it was free but it is Brent's favorite kind of razor.

I got two John Freida shampoo that were on sale for $10/2, with a $5 ECB. I had two $3 coupons which made the amount an OVERAGE of $1.

Lastly, I got three 8 packs of Mt. Dew for $8. Then, I got a free bag of Tostitos for buying three boxes.

My total at CVS last night was: $2.97. HOWEVER, the last time I was at CVS, I received $13 of ECB just because I am a card member. They will often just send you free ECB based on how much you have "spent" in the store over a period of time. So.......I actually paid nothing, and still have $10 worth of free ECB to use next time!
