What a deal!

My CVS shopping trips today were great! Okay other that the fact that I really wanted the Cottenelle toliet paper that I paid $8.22 for (which I now think may not have been the best deal I could have gotten).

I got $104.38 in products
I spent $23.49

Now, I would not normally spend $104 on this stuff. Who really wants to pay 9.99 for a stick of men's deodorant (even if it is Professional Strength). I'm thinking we pay a little less than half of that. But today I got it for free! Not one cent! And I got 3 of them!

I got 6 tubes of Colgate toothpaste for $1.50

Arm and Hammer Degreaser - FREE

Palmolive $.50

Excedrin (20 ct) - FREE

Garnier Fructis hair gel - $.99

3 bottles of Softsoap (hand soap) - $1.50

Halls Naturals Cough Drops - FREE

2 Kit-Kats (had to keep the babies happy) - $1.00

Cottonelle 20 pack - $8.22

5 bottles of Listerine Smart Rinse - $6.00

Add in $3.32 in tax and a mistake that a cashier made with one of my Extra Care Bucks that cost me about 50 Cents and there you have it!

Walgreens is never quite as good for me, but I can still find great deals. I have been reviewing todays purchases and realized even with all my savings, I made about $9 worth of mistakes. My total spent could have been even less!

I got $74.90 in product
It cost me $21.77

4 boxes of Kelloggs cereal - $3.00

2 boxes of Quaker oatmeal - $1.98

2 cans Progesso soup - $3.80 (should have been 4 cans for this price but I wasn't paying close enough attention)

4 - 130 count packs of Centrum Vitamins - $3.00 (for all 4 packs!)

Orajel Cold Sore Medicine - FREE

2 small bottles of Benefiber mix - $1.00

2 Palmolive - $.58

1 Gallon of milk - $3.89

Tax was $5.36!!! - I hate that!

Yeah, I went tonight to Kroger and got four packs of Cottonelle--so 16 rolls for 76 cents total! But really it should have been 26 cents b/c one of my e-q's didn't ring, so now I'm off to go shoot them an email and get my 50 cents back! LOL!!

What great deals!! I am so bad at that!! I am getting better though.

And Laura, you must show me how you do that with cottenelle. That is my favorite TP and I can't ever find coupons for it! ARG!!!

Wow! Look at you go! I have never been good at the coupon thing. I really need to start trying more.
