CVS and Walgreens trips 06/05 = 104% savings!

I planned on running out before church this morning, but it didn’t happen! So, I waited till naptime and left to do my drugstore deals then. Unfortunately by then Walgreens had been completely wiped out of just about everything that was free or close to it. Early bird gets the worm right?

I did get a couple of freebies, and CVS had everything (of course!) on my list and I had a GREAT trip!

First, Walgreens:

1 Reach toothbrush
1 Reach floss
1 bottle SoBe water
1 laffy taffy (not pictured)

Total before sales/coupons/RRs = $10.07
TOTAL AFTER = FREE plus $.30 profit

I spent $1 out of pocket because I didn’t have the exact dollar amount of RRs to completely pay for it, plus you always have to pay tax on items.


3 Sunday papers (my favorite guy on the corner to buy papers from was out by the time I got there this afternoon, so I had to pay full price in the store!)
2 bottles Crest Pro-Health mouthwash
2 OralB Pulsar toothbrushes
2 Colgate 360 toothbrushes
1 box John Freida foam haircolor
1 package Huggies diapers
2 boxes Excedrin

Total before coupons/sales/ECBs = $66.00
TOTAL AFTER = FREE plus $2.93 profit!

I spent nothing out-of-pocket because I used ECBs that I’d earned the past couple of weeks to pay for most of it and I paid for the rest with a gift card from prescription transfers (they take competitor’s prescription coupons!).

There were a few things that made my CVS trip so great. First is a $5/$30 purchase CVS coupon that you can get via email when you sign your email up with your Extra Care Card. The other thing was the John Freida hair color. I’d gotten a coupon in the mail to get one of these for FREE, plus CVS had a $3 ECB promo going, plus I’d gotten a $3/1 CVS coupon on my last reciept, so it was a $6 money-maker! It pays to hang on to those high-value coupons for something like this!

Total for both stores before everything = $76.07
TOTAL AFTER EVERYTHING = FREE plus $3.23 profit or 104% savings!

I’m also keeping track of my out-of-pocket spending, since I’m trying to keep that under $25 for the entire week for all my shopping! So, my out-of-pocket spending for the week so far is $1! I still have $24 left to go to Publix, Bi-Lo and Kroger with!
