This Week’s CVS Shopping Trip (My Husband Went)


So my husband went to CVS for me today! How exciting!! We had a little prep talk before he went and I got a few phone calls while he was there – but it was a total success.
And I’m sure he hates me. 🙂
Let’s break down what I did:
Get $3.00 ECB wyb 2 (limit 5)
-Dimetapp Liquid 4 oz $5
$2/1 Dimetapp Coupon
Buy (2) Dimetapp, 4 oz $5.00 each
-(2)$2/1 Dimetapp Coupons
Pay: $6.00
Get a $3 ECB
$1.50 each after coupons & ECB
(there was also a $3/$10 coupon good towards health products that he forgot to use – but it’s on CVS right now. It expires in 2 weeks. I am sure I will use it another time. )
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor – $10.99
Get $5.00 ECB
$5/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide (11/25 PG)
$4/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor, exp. 11/30/12 (RP 10/07/12)

Kellogg’s Special K Cereals – BOGO

CVS Planters Coupon $1.99  —
Thanks to Living Rich with Coupons for helping put this order together


Now!! Since I am starting FRESH this means I have NO ECB to roll over. You have to put in about $20 to play this game. This receipt is just about on target. I spent $18 on $47 worth of goods. I also received $11 in ECB back.  If all my coupons were used, it would have been $15 on $47 worth of goods. All good. Bill did great.

Next week, I will use those $11 in ECB and apply them to my new order. The idea is to roll over the ECB over and over again.
