CVS Savings!

I started going to CVS about 7 months ago when I had learned about shopping with ECBS from Crystal over at Moneysavingmom. I am slowly learning the ropes. I haven't been as diligent lately as I should be but this week I think I did pretty good! Although I have to work on building up my ECBS again. Here is my deals for this week at CVS

I decided to try doing more than one transaction this week when I went to our local CVS. It turned out to be four transactions. I didn't know if the cashier would mind doing four separate orders but she was good about it and let me. Here our my deals for this week.
Transaction #1
12 Soy Joy bars @ 1.00 each
- 4- 1.00 Mfg Coupons
- 6 - Ecbs
$2.00 OOP
$12.00 ecbs earned!

Transaction #2
1 Colgate Maxfresh toothpaste @ 2.99
1 Colgate Total - @ 2.99
4 Huggie Natural Care Wash 4 @ 3.49 each (13.96)

$6.50 Mfg coupons
12.00 ecbs from order #1
OOP- $1.44
Ecbs earned $12.00
Transaction #3
1 Colgate Maxfresh toothpaste @ 2.99
1 Colgate Total - @ 2.99
1 Listerine Smart Rinse Mouthwash - $3.49
2 CVS Bandaides 2@ 1.99 each
2 CVS Cotton Swabs 500 ct 2@ 3.39 each (6.78)

$3.50 Mfg coupons
$12.00 Ecbs from order number 2
oop- $5.01
Earned Ecbs $15.47

Transaction #4
2 All Small and mighty 2 - $6.49 (these were B1G1 free)
( I had two $1.00 coupons after -sale and coupon they came out to $2.25 each)
4- Maxwell House Coffee B1G1 free 2- $4.99
(I had 4 Mfg coupons for $1.00 each) each can came out to 1.50 a can!

I used 8.00 in Ecbs
OOP- $2.47
No Ecbs here but I still have $7.47 ecbs from previous order.

I spent total- OOP $11.01
I received $ 85.11 worth of items for $11.01!
Praise The Lord!
I still hated to spend the $11.01 oop though. I really miss the CVS $/$$ !

I also had a rebate form that I found near the Listerine Smart Rinse for the full amount $3.49 (which I sent out as soon as I got home!) So really I only had to spend about $7.52 Not so bad!

Praise the Lord for His goodness and provision!
I want to thank Crystal for all of her help on her blog too!

So how did you do?
God Bless, Kathy

Thanks for your comment on my blog. As to how I accumulated so many ECBs, I happened to start doing CVS shopping when there were a lot of free after ECB sales. I also have a subscription to my local newspaper (Washington Post), and save all of my coupon fliers in a binder by week, so that I can go back and clip coupons for items that are free after ECB and make a little profit/cut down on OOP. I treat CVS shopping like a math problem for each week, making spreadsheets to figure out my smallest OOP. If you do MyPoints or have a Discover credit card, you can get CVS gift cards for free, which is so great :) I hope this helps some, if you have more questions, let me know!

Great job! Very Very organized and I am impressed!

When they send you your Listerine Rebate, they send you another coupon for $1 off Listerine and $1 off a Reach toothbrush also. :)
