Shopping Success

Today I went to CVS to take advantage of their diaper deal this week! CVS is offering $10 is ECB's when you purchase $30 in baby items. There is a wide variety of items available - from diapers, wipes, treats, etc. I needed diapers, so here is what I did: 

Transaction #1
Bought 3 packages of Huggies Diapers - on sale for $10 each = $30.00
Used 3 $2.00 coupons from the Sunday paper
Used $5.00 off of a $20.00 purchase (got it from the Magic Coupon Machine when I walked in)
Used $10.00 of CVS Gift Cards (gotten with Viggle Points)
Paid $9.00 + tax
Got Back $10 in ECB's

Transaction #2
Bought 1 package of Huggies Swimmer Diapers - $9.99
Bought 1 package of Pampers Wipes - $3.69
Bought 1 Schick Shave Gel - $4.39
Used 1 Pampers Wipes Coupon - $.75
Used 1 Schick Shave Gel Coupon - $.75
Used 1 CVS coupon for $2/1 Schick Shave Gel (got it from Magic Coupon Machine)
Used the $10 ECB's from the previous purchase
Paid $4.57 + tax 

For a total of $13.57 OOP, I felt pretty good! Note that even without the $10 in CVS gift cards, 
it still would have been a good deal.

You don't always have to buy a lot of stuff to have great success at the grocery store! I hit Harris Teeter one last time to take advantage of the last day of Super Doubles. Here's what I got: 

Propel Water - 6 pack - on sale for $3.00
Used $1.00 coupon that doubled = $1.00

Wisk Detergent - $6.99
Used $2.00 coupon that doubled = $2.99

*Tom's of Main Toothpaste - on sale for $3.00
Used $1.00 coupon that doubled = $1.00

Tom's of Main Deodorant - on sale for $3.00
Used $1.00 coupon that doubled = $1.00

DeerPark Water - 6 pack .5 liters - on sale for $1.00
Bought 2 and used $1.00/2 coupon that doubled = Free

Total Amount: $5.99 + tax for all of the above!

*As a general rule, I never pay for toothpaste. But this is really good quality toothpaste that is usually $4.69/tube and having a coupon for it is rare. So, I was willing to splurge a little! :-)
