This week I went to CVS for the first time in almost a month.  We’ve been so stocked that I didn’t need to do any drugstore deals, but this week there were just too many great deals to stay home.  I also had some ExtraCare bucks that were about to expire so had to go!

I also went to Bi-Lo for a few things, nothing special really.  They mailed us a set of $10 off $30 coupons because of a store have a re-grand opening.  I can be easily bought and that was enough to get me to head to that particular store this week!  Grabbed milk, bread and some produce and saved an easy 33% on it.

For CVS I shared all the deals we grabbed live on Facebook sitting in the CVS parking lot. You can watch it above. Here’s my shopping list of what we grabbed.

CVS Totals:
Total Purchased: $78
Total Spent: $1.86
ECB Remaining: $15

I had $22 in ECB going in, which helps to keep your out of pocket totals low. I also broke things up into 3 transactions. Everyone had a lot of concerns with the new coupon policy, but nothing was different for me. Every deal worked as planned (with the Venus deal working even better than planned – see the video).

Bi-Lo Totals:
Total Purchased: $42.18
Total Spent: $15
Total Saved: $27.18 or 65%
