a THANKFUL trip to CVS

I met up with a new friend, Ashley at the Norco
CVS on Thursday morning for a lot of freebie
items, and totally scored. I think she did too.
I'll give a quick run down, and
then give you the totals.
the ones in blue are FREE after ECBs.
some of those I MADE money on since I had
great coupons. ( ;) and a nod to my hubby for my papers)
2 CVS pretzels .79 cents each
3 G2 Gatorades 1.49 each
6 Propel waters on closeout .40 cents each (3 not shown)
2 Aussie products 2.99 each
2 Maybelline foundations 8.99 each
1 2pk energy shots 3.99
3 Soft and Dri Deod .99 cents each
5 Right Guard Deod .99 cents each
1 playtex 3.99
2 colgates 2.99 each
1 garnier face wipes 5.99
2 bic soliel razors 5.99 each
1 King size Hershey 1$
2 Phillips headphones 6.98 each
2 altoids 1.50 each
regular total 78.24
- coupons =43.59
paid cash 28.88 oop
earned 74.33 in ECBs
amazing right.?
I love FREE stuff and I'm so thankful for it.
I love all the products i was able to buy yesterday
they are my favorites, except the BICs, but I totally
made money on those, so i'll just give them to my friends
who like them. maybe they'll do a swap with me, once the
venus goes on major sale again?
Do you think I got a SWEET deal? Did you get any deals to
be THANKFUL for on Thanksgiving or BF?
Good luck to you.

Someone threw off my GROOVE at CVS

I messed up today. What was supposed to be 4
transactions, somehow got lumped into 3. This
really made a difference on my OOP. ugh.

1st time: This should have been 2 transactions with what
I was planning to earn ECB wise
3 pkg duracell batteries...21.77
1 Lorea'l AgePerfect...15.99
2 Revlon Nail Polishes...4.99BOGO
coupons used:
3x .75 duracell Q
2$ Lorea'l Q
2$ Revlon Q
PAID 4.27 ECBs, and 35.21 OOP
earned $15(duracell) and $15.99(Lorea'l) ECBs

2nd time other card...
1 Lorea'l...15.99
6 Kleenex...1.49 and BOGO
total: 20.46
coupons used
2$ Lorea'l Q
2x .50 Kleenex/wyb 3
PAID 19.05 OOP
earned $15.99 ECBs (Lorea'l)

3rd time:
3 pkg duracell
total: 21.77
coupons used:
3x .75 duracell
PAID 15.99 ECB(from previous trans.)
3.98 OOP
earned $15 ECBs(duracell)

I think I'm set on batteries for Christmas...woohoo
I walked out of the store with lots of ECBs
15.99 Lorea'l

Learn from my mistake...please.
but the Kleenex is a killer deal.
I paid .57 cents each.
doesn't sound too killer, but they're
the ones with lotion in them....

Paid on OOP

the $5/20 Coupon is only good for Today 11/14 and tomorrow 11/15.
You can use it as many times as you want. But only 1 per transaction. and it has to be the last coupon scanned.
good luck, if you go!

2 more days- FREE $5 Starbucks have a chance to win!

I'm bummed about how most of the Day went yesterday.
The first half of my props and my President didn't go the way I wanted. So, like McCain said, paraphrasing, of course, "we need to back President Elect Obama, and stand together as a nation. Rally together." Isn't McCain so gracious and PRESIDENTIAL? Hmmmm?
I wonder what CHANGE will cost? or mean? I'm a little nervous, and like my Friend, Lauren, I will start praying that Obama will be able to make good decisions for the people of America.

And, here's your chance to enter a giveaway for a FREE $5 Starbucks giftcard.
Visit this CUTE BLOG and enter the giveaway. Good luck.
