{Weekly Haul: CVS}

Today I went to CVS to snatch up some awesome FREE deals before everyone else could grab them all. ;) But sometimes even going early on a Sunday does not mean you're going to get everything...even when they have a "Limit 1 per person" deal in place. 

Please know that I am not complaining about this. I really do like having the 1 per person deal in place. I'm just using it as an example to a) always have some back up deals just in case and b) you're not always going to get everything you planned for with your shopping trips!

Now, on to the deal breakdown....

  • (1) Shick Hydro Shaving Gel - $4.19 (regular price) - (1) .75 manufacturer coupon = $3.44 out of pocket and I received a $2.00 extra buck.
  • (1) Coca Cola - 99 cents. No coupons but received a .99 cent extra buck.
  • (1) Powerade 32oz. - $1.00. No coupons but received a $1.00 extra buck.
  • (2) Right Guard Deodorants - $2.99 x 2 = $5.98 - $2.00/2 coupon = $3.98. Received a $4.00 extra buck.
  • (1) Charmin Basic Single Toilet Paper Roll - .99 cents - (1) .25/1 manufacturer coupon = .74 cents and I received a .99 extra buck.
  • (1) Kleenex 3 pack tissues wallet = .99 cents. No coupons but I received a .99 extra buck.
  • (1) Thermacare Back and Hip wrap 1 count - $3.49. No coupons but I received a $3.49 extra buck.
  • (1) 3M Command Single Hook - .99 cents - $1.00 manufacturer coupon, so FREE! And I received a .99 cent extra buck.
Total out of pocket: $11.71
Total before any coupons/sales/promotions: $29.00
Received $15.46 in extra bucks, so this transaction was a $3.75 money maker!

As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask! Also, if you see any math errors let me know. ;)

Giveaway Winner!

Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop in and say hello :)

Do you all remember the Living Well, Spending Less giveaway I posted about in September? Here is the post I made about it:

I just wanted to let you all know that I was one of the winners! I ended up winning one of the three MEMBERSHIPS! A $199 value! I'm very excited about this as I have been wanting to further my financial goals - in addition to the couponing I do!

My plan is to start this in January so I will have a fresh year and not have to worry about school taking over everything.

Until next time!
