My "CVScapades" (My sister coined that term...I love it)
It was a very good day.
Everything in this picture, all $192.05 worth cost me a total of $20.74. My out of pocket would have been much less, if I had broken up the Right Guard purchases into about 3 more transactions, but it was Thanksgiving after all and I did have other things to do. I still walked out with only paying slightly over 20 bucks and have $35.00 in Extra Care Bucks for my next shopping trip.
Here is just what is in the picture in case you can't make it all out:
5 Right Guard Professional Strength Deodorants (these alone would have cost $40.00!)
3 packages of 3 each Dial Soap
1 Aussie Shampoo
1 Aussie conditioner
3 Gatorade G2
2 Maybelline Mineral Power (liquid make up)
1 Gover Girl Liquid make up
1 Cover Girl pressed powder
2 Colgate Total toothpaste
2 Loreal Lip Juice Lip Gloss
2 Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Nail polish
1 Johnson's Soft Lotion
1 Garnier Make Up removing cloths
1 King size Hershey Bar
1 Shick Titanium Trimmers
1 package of 2 each 5 Hour Energy Shots
2 packages of Phillip's ipod ear buds
I did start with $35.00 in Extra Bucks, so I had a good way to start my shopping spree. I also had $8.00 in manufacturer's coupons. I did 4 different transactions, and like I said, if I had split up my last purchase I would have spent less. I am not beating myself up though over this. I am quite pleased.
The store was out of the Bic Soliel razors that were in the sale ad for today though. Actually, they had one on their shelf and a gal in front of me got it. No problem...I have 4 in my stockpile.
I guess I should also include CVS with what I am thankful for this year, but not necessarily just CVS. I actually am thankful for this whole new way of shopping. Stockpiling, couponing, and matching ads has really boosted our budget!
