I kinda have a love/hate relationship with CVSing. Usually, it seems like no matter how ready I am with my list, coupons, ExtraCare Bucks, etc, I still end up spending way too much out of pocket. But I have been trying harder lately. Really studying the ad, other sites that outline scenarios, and clipping more coupons. This week I scored! And I even had Libbie with me, which makes me a little nervous–but she slept through her first CVSing experience.
I was determined not to buy too much today–just stick with what I could get for a couple bucks. And it worked!
Here’s what I did today:
2 bottles Pantene Natural Fusion Shampoo: $3.50 each = $7.00
–Used $3/2 coupon
–Got $2 ECB back
1 Skintimate cream shave: $3.49
–Got $3.49 ECB back
2 cans of Pringles: 88 cents each = 1.76
–Used $1/2 coupon
1 Degree Girl deodorant: on clearance for $1.85
–Used .75 coupon
1 Dove deodorant: on clearance for $2.40
–Used $1 coupon
–Goes toward Unilever free ham
Used $7.99 ECB
Total OOP $2.76
Got back $5.49 ECB for advertised deals, .50 ECB from unbeknownst source, and $4/20 coupon.
