CVS Shopping Trip 6/13/10

Baby, Coupons, CVS, Shopping deals, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized
Again and again I go to CVS and I'm amazed at how much I can get for so little!   I try really hard to lower my out of pocket and in this case my out of pocket is a little bit more then I wanted but I came out ahead at the end. On the right hand side of the photo, I got the free Extra Care bucks $2 ECB just for scanning my card and it expires 7/13/10. This is the amazing deal!   Old Spice is currently $4 right now and you will get $4 ECB limit 1.  However, when I did this by buying 2  and using the B1G1 coupon in the P&G 6/5/10 I got back $8 ECBs!   Woohoo!   Sorry, I don't have both in the…

CVS Trip 5/28/10

How do moms do it?    I'm a mom of one child and I still don't know how moms do it.   Dare, I say that I took my toddler to CVS today for a quick run!  I got out of there as fast as I could but she wanted to "play". I have to admit it is fun to look around at CVS but keeping a toddler under control is tough.  My daughter loved the CVS coupon machine so that worked out for a minute then she decided to run around and try and open everything she could get her hands on.  It was tough. I had 2 coupons that expired this week a $2 ECB and a $3 CVS coupon on any purchase.   I was so bummed out.  I…

Shoppers Trip 05/08/10 and CVS Trip 05/08/10

Coupons, CVS, Shoppers, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized
I can't believe it is Wednesday already the weekend went by so fast.  I'd been trying to get these pictures downloaded so I could show off my shopping trips and now I can. Back when they had the Shopper's Promotion I was trying to decide when I should use the 2 $5 catalinas.  This weekend was when they were to expire so on Saturday I went in and got all of this after using the catalinas it came to under $3!  Not bad.  We had a funny picnic on Sunday in the garage eating salad.  Will be making salads tomorrow night. I'm excited to say that I got to do the Nivea deal more than once.  This is my favorite body wash.  I'm so glad I got introduced to it…

Baby, Shopping deals, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized, Walmart
On Mother's Day I went to CVS and Walmart with the family.  We got errands done and after nap-time we had a great time at the park. I hadn't heard of Babyganics before and I noticed it on this shelf at my Walmart for $5 and I confirmed that the Stain Stain Go Away is $5 and the All Purpose Cleaner is $3.50 PLUS they come with a Buy One Get One For FREE coupon on the bottle expires 12/31/10.    So in two transactions I did 2 Stain Stain Go Away for $5 (that is $2.50 each) and 2 All Purpose clean for $3.50 (that is $1.25 each).  Not a bad price for organic cleaners!  I can't wait to try them out.

Crazy week and Giant Shopping Trip 4/21/10

general, Giant, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized
This week has been a crazy week. A lot has been going on and I haven't been as good about posting good deals. I'm hoping after tomorrow when the weekend starts I can start getting organized, clean the family room, office, and of course laundry. I'm really behind on laundry and haven't been doing my routine.  Honestly, working full-time is tough because I'm always behind.  In the evenings after my daughter goes to bed, all I want to do is the essentials and go to bed. I'm exhausted! This weekend I plan on cleaning up and going to the grocery store might go to Bottom Dollar to use my $10 off a $40 purchase. Check out what my hubby got at Giant yesterday?   A bag of fruit including apples, mango…

Wow! Lots of Fabric I purchased at Joann Fabric Closing Burke VA

DIY, Shopping deals, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized
Have I mentioned that I really like fabric?   Well, I really do.  It's crazy I know.  I have a very good stockpile of all sorts of fabrics in particular quilting cottons. My hubby called me to tell me about the Burke Joann Store was closing in order to move to a bigger store in Fairfax.  He said most of the fabrics were 50% to 75% and in addition they still did the sale price from the circular.   In some cases that makes it 85% to 95% off!   When I got there he had 30+ bolts of fabric ready to purchase.  I then purchase 12 more! When it rang up it was $280+ and after the discounts it came to $80+!  I can't believe it.  Of course I don't know exactly…
