Yes!  You read that right.  I paid $.36 out of pocket for all you see.  I used a $10 Extra Care Bucks that I had with me from last week's diaper deal.   I didn't expect to pay that little.  I expected to pay around $8 or so. Which is still a great deal! 1 Cascade 75 oz $4.99 1 Dimetapp $4.99 2 Children's Advil $4.49 each 1 Stayfree Pads 24 ct $2.00 1 Gillette 4 Ct Custom Plus $8.49 1 Gillette 4 Ct Venus Simply $8.79 1 Snickers $.99 Subtotal = $39.23 Use the $4/$20 coupon I got in my email.  Note:  If you get one of these it is recommended to print it out when you are going to use it because it will expire 4 days after you…

Its been awhile since I posted a shopping trip.  I thought I would share this one especially to my new readers who may not realize how much I save on some of my CVS trips. TIP: Read the new CVS coupon policy.  See it HERE! Monday I went to CVS to pick up a prescription and I got a $4 off a $20 purchase coupon at checkout!  Plus, I got my CVS Extracare Bucks (ECBs) for the Winter Spending which is $2.   I checked my coupons and realized I have an Extracare Buck that will expire on 4/10/12, so a perfect idea to go again today.  I had a total of$11 worth of ExtraCare Bucks to spend. TIP:  Always scan your CVS card at the Red Coupon machine located near…

Rite Aid Shopping Trip 11/13/10 – All for $11.25 and got back $8.99!

Coupons, Rite Aid, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized
Wow!  It's been a long time since I posted a shopping trip and I thought this one was worth it to post. Check out all I got for $11.25 and I got back $8.99 to use on my next purchases.  I'm really amazed at the deals that Rite Aid has with their new +UP reward program. I did this in a couple transactions because I had a raincheck for the Nivea lotion which would have been a $5 +UP but what the cashier did was put it towards my next purchase.  What a great idea. I highly recommend getting to know the cashiers and managers at your stores because they can help you with rain-checks, checking the back for the product or even some other creative ways to help you…

CVS Shopping Trip 6/20/10

Baby, Coupons, CVS, Shopping deals, Shopping Plans, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized
First let me say Happy Father's Day!   My hubby had a great day staying at home getting things done that HE wanted to.  I got to spend the day with my daughter and my parents.  It was a very busy and hot day in NOVA. I was lucky enough to get out and stop at CVS all by myself.  My daughter definitely isn't the age to understand going to store and waiting Mommy to get her transactions straight. Here are the two transactions I did today with 2 different cards. At the CRT Red coupon machine I got a $4/$20 coupon! A week or so ago I also got a CRT for the $3 off a box of Huggies with that same card. I bought 1 Huggies Snug and Dry…
