CVS Trip November 3rd
Do you ever have those days when your kid is acting so bad that you would pay any amount of money to get out of the store? Well, today was one of those days for me. I went to CVS with a plan all worked out and my coupons ready and then Trevor started acting horrible. Needless to say I paid for my stuff in one big purchase instead of breaking it down into smaller purchases like I normally would have. This caused me to spend a LOT more then I planned. Transaction 2 packages of Pampers diapers (Reg. $11.99, Sale $10 - $2 Q & $1.50 Q = 2/$16.50) 2 Olay Quench Lotion (Reg. $7.49, Sale $6 - $3/2Q = $4.50 each) Pumpkin Erasers (Reg. $1.99, Sale $.99) Pumpkin lights (Reg. $4.99, Sale $2.49) 2 pkgs Orange lights (Reg. $3.99, Sale $1.99) Peeper lights (Reg. $9.99, Sale $4.99) 10 pks Ice Cubes gum (Reg. $1.19, Sale $1 – 5 $1/2Q’s = $5) Crest Pro Whitening toothpaste (Reg. $3.89, Sale $3.49 - .75Q = $2.74) Colgate 360 Sonic toothbrush (Reg. $6.99, Sale $4.99 - $2 CVS Q - $1 Q = $1.99) I used $10 ECB and paid $41.08 OOP. This was a savings of $49.01. I earned back $5 ECB for the gum, $2 ECB for the toothbrush, $5 ECB for the Olay, $3.49 ECB for the toothpaste and $5 for pampers. I think next time I will go on the weekend when I can shop alone. I seem to do a lot better with not spending WAY too much.
