CVS Trip 8/9 I went on a CVS trip today! In looking at my saved pictures, it looks like I haven't shopped there since May 9th. Wowza! Doesn't seem like it's been that long. I had to go to two different stores, but that's OK because I wanted to break up the transactions anyway. The 25% Just for You CVS coupon was mailed to me last week. It was valid until 8/16, but I decided to use it today. I didn't have any ECBs to roll, just that % off coupon, so that's why I broke up my transactions. To … [Read more...]

This is what a year's supply of deodorant for me looks like at our house. Well, almost a year, I may have to go back and get 2 more.

CVS Shopping Trip Becomes an Epic Fail


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

I had some high value P&G coupons from inside various packages of products that I had purchased over the past year.

We say it all the time on the pages, if you don't have a raincheck file, you are missing out. BIG TIME. Whether you have a raincheck or not, this is a deal you can do with little to no out of pocket and still come out pretty good. I just happened to have a raincheck to stack with a current sale and some pretty awesome coupons. A couple of months ago, there was an ECB deal on Schick razors/refills. It was a $10 ECB when you spent $25. At the time the Schick BOGO coupon was floating around, … [Read more...]

Publix, Adjusting Your Shopping Trip on the Spot

It's gas card time at Publix again this week and I always make it a point to shop during these promos.

Have you ever noticed you run low on the expensive items at the same time? When I left to go shopping I expected to save about 38%. I made a conservative list because I really expected the shelves to be low or empty on a couple of items but I took all my … [Read more...]

Publix Shopping Trip + Gas Cards


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

When Publix runs their gas card promos I make it a point to take advantage of it. Luckily I was able to score some deals on baggies as I let them dwindle down to 3 boxes waiting for a good sale so the timing this week was perfect for the few things I needed. The gas card deal is $10.00 off a $50.00 gas card with every $25.00 purchased. I also had (2) $5.00 off $30.00 or more Publix coupon so I had to get to $60.00 and save as much as I could to make the gas card deal worth it. As it turns out … [Read more...]
