{ CVS Haul }

One of the items I really enjoy using with my laundry is Downy Unstoppables. They provide a long lasting fresh scent after your clothes are washed and dried that I was instantly hooked the first time I tried a sample. They go on sale every once in awhile, so when I have coupons and they are at a good price I stock up so it will last me. A new smaller size has come out recently that is only about $1 or $2 cheaper than the larger size...and if I remember correctly it's pretty much considered a trial size? It bothers me, but hey. Nothing I can do about it. I'll just stick with getting the regular, original size for almost 50% off. :)

This week CVS was the store to have my favorite laundry item on sale and I had some great coupons to match up with it. CVS also had a great deal on Febreze Car Clips, which I only get if I can get them at at least $1.50 or less.

  • (4) Downy Unstoppables in Fresh Scent - regularly $8.99 (CRAZY!) on sale for $5.99. I used (4) $1.00/1 any Downy coupons. Total paid: $19.96 (or $4.99 each).
  • (1) Febreze Car Clip in Hawaiian Aloha Scent - regularly $3.79, on sale for $2.99. I used a $1.00/1 coupon from a P&G promotional book that I received in the mail. I was only able to get one of these because it was the only one left and they did not have any more in the back. Total paid: $1.99.
Subtotal: $21.95
Total after tax (6%): $21.95 + $1.62 = $23.57
I did have a $10 gift card from a previous transaction that I applied to this order.
Total after $10 gift card: $23.57 - $10.00 = $13.57.
Total had there not been any sales or coupons: $31.27.
I received $5 extra bucks for the purchases, so *technically* I paid only $8.57.

If you have any questions or you see an issue with the math, please let me know. My next post will be about an impromptu trip to Kroger! I really scored at the Mega Sale and I need to make another trip before the great deals end tomorrow.

Take care and until next time!
