I'm really doing well with coupons and sales, both at CVS, Food Lion and Dollar General lately. Those are the three stores that I visit most often.
I have been receiving a coupon by email from CVS almost every Thursday around noon, so I have been waiting until toward the end of the week to make my trip. Its great when the coupon is for $5.00 of a $25 or $30 dollar order. Other times it will be a percentage like 25 or 30 off the order. This isn't as good because the percentage off will only apply to non-sale items and I don't buy too much at CVS that isn't on sale! It does apply to some items that aren't on sale, but generate extra bucks, so I still benefit from it sometimes. The email gives you the option to send the coupon to your card and so I do that, even if I don't use it. It will automatically come off at the register, when the cashier scans your card.
Here is my plan of attack for this week:
2 Colgate Max toothpaste at $2.99
2 Crest ProHealth toothpaste at $2.99
2 Crest ProHealth Rinse at $4.99
2 $1.10 off the rinse
1 $2.00 off 2 Colgate toothpaste
2 $.50 off Crest toothpaste
$15.00 EBs from last week
Total $20.20 in coupons
$1.74 out of pocket
Get back $16.00 extra bucks
Diaper Deal: Buy $30 and get $12 Extra Bucks
3 packs of Huggies at $9.49 ea.
1 Huggies Wipes at $3.00
Less $16,00 extra bucks from first transaction
Less 3 $3.00 coupons on Huggies diapers ($9.)
Less $5.00 coupon on huggies purchase of $20 that printed at kiosk last week
(Am looking for a coupon for the wipes)
$31.47 cost less $30.00 in coupons, equals $1.47 out of pocket.
Get back $12.00 Extra bucks for next week or other deals that I may do this week.
The coupon CVS sends to my email Thursday may sweeten these deals even further, hopefully.
More details later.... got to go to work!
