So far this week I’ve really only ventured to the drugstores.  I have a number of coupons cut and ready to go for when we get to the beach but I don’t want to haul anything that I could get on sale there (we already take so much of the pantry as it is).

I couldn’t resist a quick trip to CVS to pay nothing on two tubes of toothpaste and needed sunscreen so ventured to Rite Aid for that one.  Thanks to Bi-Lo now running Plenti Points we didn’t pay anything at Rite Aid either!


(2) Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, $3.99
(2) -$2 off Colgate optic white, or total advanced, 3 oz+, SS 05/07
-$4 ECB (from previous weeks)
Total Due: nothing!
Got Back: $4 ECB

Folks always tell me they don’t have time for couponing… well that took maybe 5 minutes and is two completely free items we will use!

While I was walking stores for unadvertised deals a few packages of $2 strawberries, 34¢ Old Orchard Juice and a raincheck for some free BIC Multipurpose lighters.  Total Due: $6.68

It’s not a bad week at all for saving (it does help that were in eat everything out of the fridge mode).
