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%

      Thanks Jenny- using your website, I got several of these deals earlier today. Now that I have cancelled my newspaper, I rely on your info more than ever. I got the men’s Fusion razors for my hubby. Those were included in the Gillette deal.

      Don’t forget the $1 back on Venus Razors at Checkout 51!

      I didn’t know CVS had a new coupon policy. Did Jenny post about it?

      Spent $86.66 at Publix, used $147.89 in coupons, and saved over $50 from sales. The order included 7 pounds of grass-fed beef, a pound of Kerrygold butter, 20 packages of frozen vegetables (12 of them organic), 2 bags of Romaine lettuce, organic celery, organic peaches, fresh raspberries, coconut milk, Annie’s cereal, Annie’s bunny fruit snacks, Annie’s mac-n-cheese, 3 pints of sour cream, 3 family-size frozen meals (2 of them organic), 2 mascaras, a gallon of ice cream, M&M cookie ice cream sandwiches, 6 cans of soup, orange juice, a case of bottled water, and 124 oz. of yogurt. Had some great high value coupons this time.

      Went back later and spent $2.81 on 1 1/2 lbs. quinoa, 14 larabars, and 16 Power Bars. All of these items were on clearance, saving me $25.68 off regular prices. Added to the store savings was $21.50 in coupons.
