Baby Formula Deals

This afternoon I was able to run in with my daughter and buy a jar of Similac formula.

My card 2nd transaction:

1 Similac 22.99

-3/15 coupon – Thanks I heart CVS

-1 Similac 22 oz larger coupon 10-12-08 SS

-6.99 ECB

-4.99 ECB

-2.00 ECB

subtotal: 5.01

-5 Similac Check (I have two of these)

Total OOP.01 + tax (not sure if this taxed or not)

OOP .16  used GC  OOP 0.00

That leaves me with $2.99 + $2.00 (Fall Spending) = $4.99

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Addition:

This morning I did the first transaction and instead used my card and a 5/25 that I got in my email.  I decided to buy 2 papers because there are so many coupons this week – $1.50 each.  A lady that was also buying a paper put down the center section and I asked her for it after she paid for it.  She was very nice.

Unfortantly, my transaction didn’t work out the way I planned.

1 Enfamil 25.9 oz 22.99

2 Washington Post Sunday papers 1.50 each

subtotal 25.99

5/25

(-3 catalina manu. coupon (Giant food) My step-dad has been getting them every time he has been shopping and he gives them to me.   The CVS computer wouldn’t accept the coupon the cashier tried and then argued with me about it being a Giant “only”.  Those did work at Walmart.  Lesson learned!)

-11.98 ECB

subtotal 9.01

-5 enfamil check (only have one of left)

Total OOP 4.01 + tax

======================================

I breastfeed my daughter and now that she is almost 7 months it’s time to add more formula and baby foods to her diet. It’s becoming harder for me to pump enough for her. She is now drinking about 6 oz per feeding and needs at least 3 bottles. It didn’t help that I was sick the last couple of weeks either so formula has been a life saver. The good side is she really enjoys it. I still breastfeed her at home in the morning and nights.

As most of us know formula is expensive. I’ve been looking all over the place for good deals on formula. Which is why I tried to keep up with breastfeeding as much as possible. Thankfully she is at the point that she is enjoying her cereal and soon will be enjoying other foods as well.

She likes both Enfamil and Similac. We have been feeding her mostly Enfamil as a supplement for the last couple of months.

This coming week CVS ad 1/4 thru 1/10 has both Enfamil and Similac (23.2-25.9 oz) on sale for $22.99.

I have a lot of ECBs on my card and some on Nana’s card too.

This is the thought I have:

Nana’s card

1 Enfamil 25.9 oz 22.99

-3/15 coupon – Thanks I heart CVS

-3 catalina manu. coupon (Giant food) My step-dad has been getting them every time he has been shopping and he gives them to me.

-11.98 ECB

subtotal 5.01

-5 enfamil check (only have one of left)

Total OOP .01 + tax (not sure if this taxed or not)

My card 2nd transaction:

1 Similac 22.99

-3/15 coupon – Thanks I heart CVS

-1 Similac 22 oz larger coupon 10-12-08 SS

-11.98 ECB

-2.00 ECB

subtotal: 5.01

-5 Similac Check (I have two of these)

Total OOP.01 + tax (not sure if this taxed or not)

My card 3rd transaction:

1 Similac 22.99

-3/15 coupon – Thanks I heart CVS

-1 Similac 22 oz larger coupon 10-12-08 SS

-6.99 ECB

-4.99 ECB

-2.00 ECB

subtotal: 5.01

-5 Similac Check (This would be my last one)

Total OOP .01 + tax (not sure if this taxed or not)

Now I need to look for some good ECB deals because this would leave me with only $2.99 ECBs left on my card and $7.98 on Nana’s card.

Feeling Better

This last week my daughter got a 24 hour bug and is now feeling better. I hope to catch up and read the good deals and post again soon. In the meantime, a couple lessons I learned while she was sick.

1. The forehead thermometers aren’t accurate. Every time we used it we would get different results. The digital thermometers work the best.

2. Simply Saline spray for babies is a must have. It works great for their small noses. I got mine for free because RiteAid had a lot of cold medicines back in October for free after rebate. Plus, there is a coupon Simply Saline Nasal Product, Any – 11-16-08 SS exp 12/31/09.

3. The nose suction bulb has been a lifesaver. I truly believe cleaning out the nose is the only way to prevent infections.

4. Warm steamy showers are fantastic for clearing out the lungs and nose.

5. Cool mist humidifier is an easy way to keep the air moist.
