Random trip to CVS

So, I randomly decided to go to CVS to take advantage of the spend $25 get Avatar for $5. I’ve never seen the movie, but I want to. So I figured why not buy it! The stuff that I had to spend $25 on was stuff that I buy anyway…so it seemed like a good idea! :) 

So here is how it went:

(4) bottles of All detergent – 2/$7 

(2) boxes of Wheat Thins – $1/1

(2) packs of Fig Newtons – $1/1

(2) boxes of Mutligrain Cheerios – $2.44 each

(1) box of Honey Nut Cheerios – $2.44

(1) box of Lucky Charms – $2.44

Avatar DVD – $19.99 

Total = $47.74 – $15/1 Avatar promotion, (1) $2/1 All coupon, (1) $1/1 Honey Nut Cheerios coupon, (1) $1/2 Cheerios coupon, (1) $ .55/1 Lucky Charms coupon, (4) $1/1 Nabisco coupons

= $24.19 (plus tax) oop!!

Transaction 1:

2 bags of Dunkin Donuts Coffee – on sale $6.00 each ($3 ECB when you spend $10.)

1 Covergirl Lash Blast mascara – $5.99 (receive $4 ECB)

= $17.99 – $1.50/2 Dunkin Donuts coupon and (2) $1/1 Dunkin Donuts CVS coupon – $1/1 Covergirl coupon 

= $13.49 oop + $7 ECB = $ 6.49!

Transaction 2:

1 box of Pampers Cruisers – $21.99 ($5 ECB) 

= $21.99 – $1.75/1 Pampers coupon + $3.00/1 Pampers CVS coupon + $4 and $3 ECB 

= $10.24 oop + $5ECB = $5.24!

1 Dawn Hand Renewal dish soap

Total = $.11 + $5 ECB

coupons, coupons, coupons.

Okay, so I am back into my saving money kick.  I have been thoroughly inspired by reading many, many different blogs about how mom’s around the country are using coupons to actually make money with shopping! (who would have thought?!)  Let me tell you, this is not an easy thing to do! I have been reading a lot about CVS…and the different strategies you must use to spend pennies for bags of stuff!! I made my first CVS shopping trip yesterday. Mind you, I’m no where near being an expert in this field yet, but I am pretty proud of what I did! :) 

Okay, so this is what I bought!

Pantene Pro-V Natural Fusion Shampoo and Conditioner 

Cascade Dishwasher Detergent

Dawn Dish Soap

Dawn Hand Renewal Dish Soap

3 boxes of Puff tissues

16pk of Duracell AA batteries

16 big rolls of Charmin toilet paper

6 big rolls of Bounty paper towels

Scope Oulast mouthwash

2 – 12 packs of coke 

Vaseline Sheer Infusion body lotion

Total = $83.40

+ coupons and deals = $60.28

My extra care bucks (free money for next trip) = $20.50!!!

I basically paid $40 for all that stuff!  

I am super excited to really get into this and learn how to get the best deals possible! I love shopping, so what is more fun than shopping and basically making money! There is a lot to learn! I am going to become  a coupon queen and make Stephen’s hard earned money go as far as possible!! :) 

If you have any advice/tips, please let me know! :)
