**Don’t miss next weeks CVS deals and scenarios**

So far I have only made it to Kroger and CVS this week.  My big Publix trip is set for sometime today.  I hope you guys left a few things on the shelves! Before you say anything I know I went way over budget this week.  My stockpiles have gotten a little low so we are buying a lot more of the great deals to last us a little longer.

Kroger: Total before coupons: $158.89
Total Spent: $78.31
Total Saved: $80.58 or 50.7%

CVS: Total before coupons:$40.61
Total Spent: $6.93
Total Saved: $33.68 or 82.9%

Total for the week (so far):
Total before coupons and sales: $193.50
Total Spent: $85.24
Total Saved: $114.26 or 59%

My CVS Transactions:
I detailed out what I was going to do but was hampered by my store being out of Dr. Scholls and Revitalist so I did half of the planned deals but still came out pretty good!

Trans #1
(1) Nivea Body Wash
(1) Adidas Deodorant
-$1 off Nivea
-$1 off Adidas
-$2 off $10
Total Due: $6.48 payed with $5.99 ECB from last week and .53 cents
Got Back: $8.99 ECB

Trans #2
(2) Cottonelle 12 roll packs $6.49
(1) Pull Ups Mega $15
Used: -$4 off $20
(2) -$1 off Cottonelle printable
(1) -$2 off Pull Ups
Total Due: $19.98 paid with $13.99 ECB and $6.40 in cash
Got back $10 ECB for next week

So I spent $6.93 and have $10 for more CVS shopping!!  We needed the Pull Ups too, it couldn’t have come at a better time.
