There is an advantage to getting the Early Sunday paper on Saturday! The Early Sunday paper had a $1/1 Ban solid deodorant coupon!! So I went to Walgreens and scored 3 more Ban deodorants and Schick shaving cream all for $.46!!
*I used the in ad Walgreens coupon making each deodorant $.99
*I used 2 Internet printable $.75/1 Ban deodorant coupons
*I used $1/1 Ban solid deodorant coupon
Plus I used my $3 Register rewards from my last Sunday purchase making all of this $.46! :)
Today I went shopping at Walgreens again and I got:
*Oscar Mayer ready serve bacon on sale for 2/$4 (used 2- $.75 coupons) = $2.50
*Kotex U pads $3.49 get $2.50 in Register rewards. (used $1/1 coupon) = $2.49
*Nature Valley snack bars used the in ad coupon making it $1.99 (used $.40/1 coupon)= $1.59
*Pull ups $8.99 (used a $2/1 coupon in the April Walgreens book and a $2/1 manu coupon)= $4.99
*Houston Chronicle $2
*3 reusable Walgreens bags with in ad coupon making them 3/$1
Total with tax :$15.27
I was kind of bummed about my shopping trip. I only took $20 to shop at Walgreens and CVS which only left me with $4.73! So off I went to CVS!
At CVS the first thing I do is scan my CVS card at the coupon machine. You can scan it a total of 2 times per day I do believe. At least that's how many times I got to scan it today. It did not spit out any coupons that I wished to use today, but they don't expire until the 25th.
At CVS I got:
*2 boxes of strawberry nutrigrain bars on sale $2/5 (used a $1/2 coupon) = $4
*Oak farm milk on sale for $2.99 - when you buy a gallon of milk and 2 kellogs products you get $3 in ECBs (I used a $1/1 coupon for the milk)
*Colgate Total $2.99 (used a $1/1 coupon in All You mag) = $1.99 (Got $2 ECBs)
*Schick shave gel $2.79 (Got $1.80 in ECBs)
*4 cans of bumblebee tuna on sale for $.49 = $1.96
*1 CVS Green tag $.99 (got .99 in ECBs)
Before coupons my total would have been $16.72 plus taxes. I gave them my $3 in coupons and I gave them $12.99 in previous ECB's (from last Sunday) I had one more ECB worth $1 but I would have lost $.20, so I just paid them....
OOP total: $.80 AND I GOT... $7.79 in ECB's this trip to use on my next purchase! :) The cashier said "Wow, you're good at this, I guess you know you have all of this coming to you (talking about the ECB's)". It was nice to actually have a cashier be excited about the deals I get! All of my annoyance from the Walgreens trip faded away, I was super happy with this CVS trip.
