CVS Trip - December 29, 2009
Time has been in great demand around here for months. I can't promise I will post about these trips regularly, but I will when I can.
Here's what I got at CVS this week for 77 cents oop.
*Please don't hold me accountable on the actual amounts of the manufacturer coupons I used. I can't find my list. LOL!
That's right - 77 cents out of pocket. And got back $12 in ECB's. Woo-hoo!
1 Bounty Basic 6 roll (Yay, I was down to my last roll). $5.88 - .50 mc
1 Colgate Total 4 oz toothpaste $2.99 - $2 ECB - $1 mc
3 Dawn Dish soaps - 3 .25 mc
1 Gillette Fusion Razor $8.99 - $4 ECB - $3 mc?
1 Scope Outlast $3.49 - $1.00 ecb - $ mc ?
1 3 pack Ivory soap 99 cents - $1 mc (cashier will have to adjust down)
2 Johnson Buddies soaps - 2 CVS coupons $ ? (I received these in the mail)
1 Nivea Women's Body Wash (It was on sale last week - I had a raincheck) $5.99 - $5 ecb - $2 mc.
I think the trick to making CVS work for me, is to do it like a CD ladder. You know roll a few bucks every week or two. I was feeling burned out and only doing CVS shopping when they had exceptional deals or when my bucks were ready to expire. Not a good idea. Lately I have been having about $50 in ECB's on hand to play around with. It sure helps a budget!
