I constantly hear two excuses for why people don’t coupon:
1. We only eat organic or non-processed foods so nothing we buy ever has coupons.
2. Drugstores are way over priced, I get everything at Walmart.
While I can’t always help #1 folks (though I will say everything in the store does go on sale…) I can help everyone with their personal and household needs. So for the next month I will be sharing through video and detailed posts exactly what we bought at CVS and in what order. Hopefully after a few weeks you’ll realize just how wonderful the drugstore game is and be up for trying it out. I’m pretty sure everyone needs soap, toothpaste, shampoo and deodorant — so it can’t hurt to try it!
To see the breakdown of Week #1 go here.
For week two I had $12 in ECB left from my week #1 trip. This was a slow week for deals, but there were a few fun things so we might as well swing in. Also if it helps any of you, right now I have no current coupon inserts as I battle the paper carrier to deliver a paper in the boonies… so these trips are almost 100% with printable coupons.
I did this in one transaction:
(2) Dial Body Wash, 18 oz, $4
(1) Renu Contact Solution, 12 oz, $7.99
(1) CVS Brand Calcium Citrate, 60 ct., $2.82
-$2 off $8 in Body Wash, CVS coupon center coupon
-$1 off Dial or Dial for Kids body wash (Facebook) printable
-$2 off Bausch+Lomb Renu Fresh or Sensitive multi-purpose solution, 8 oz+ printable
-$3 off any Vitamin, CVS coupon center coupon
Total Due: 87¢ (after tax)
Got Back: $7 ECB ($5, $2)
I also just got an email that between last week and this week I hit the $50 Beauty Club reward, so next time I’m in the store I will get another $5 ECB!!!
So far for the first two weeks my totals are:
Total before sales and coupons: $147.97
Total spent after tax: $32.14
ECB Remaining: $14 (including the beauty reward)
