Money Monday - Weekly CVS Shop

Since I was sick all weekend, this is actually last week's shop. I am looking forward to figuring out what to buy this week and posting some ideas here, but so far my head only allows me to do so much. I think this is all I can get to tonight, but feel free to email me with CVS scenarios and I will gladly post them here!

I was desperately in need of diapers last week, so I bought a few packages of those since they were on sale 2/$12. I obviously didn't need 15 sets of toe separators, but due to the great ECB deal, I actually made $10 by buying all of them.



Transaction #1:

(3) Softsoap bodywash @ $4.99 each
(6) toe separators @ 99 cents each

Total before coupons: $20.90 + tax
Used 3 $1.50/1 Softsoap coupons and $16 ECB.
Total OOP: 80 cents (paid for with CVS gift card)
ECB earned: $24.97 ($14.97 and $10)


Transaction #2:

(2) pkgs CVS diapers @ $6.00 each
(3) toe separators @ 99 cents each

Total before coupons: $14.97 + tax
Used $3/$10 CVS and $11 ECB.
Total OOP: $1.04 (paid for with CVS gift card)
ECB earned: $5


Transaction #3:

(3) bottles CVS Rapid Release @ $3.99 each
(6) toe separators @ 99 cents each
(2) 8-ct boxes Glucerna snack bars @ $5.49 each
(1) CVS brand Neosporin @ $4.49

Total before coupons: $33.38 + tax
Used $10/2 Glucerna products coupon and $20.50 ECB.
Total OOP: $3.05 (paid for with CVS gift card)
ECB earned: $21.97 ($10 and $11.97)


So....not too bad, eh? :)

Anyone have any deal ideas for this beginner? I'm addicted, there's no doubt. I made my first run last week from your deal ideas and now I cant get enough! :) Thanks again for your help.

KIMMY: What do you have to work with? Do you have ECB? Newspaper coupons?
