Monday With Mom - CVS Savings

If you checked out last week you will know of all the great deals just waiting for you at CVS. I took advantage of the savings so hold on for the ride, I'm in a hurry because the mountains of laundry, dishes and the usual weekend clutter awaits. The computer is being turned off after this post. I have 3 days to do what I usually do in 5. Gatlinburg is beckoning and I need to get busy!

1st trip - 2 Adidas Deodorant $3.29 each minus $1 off each with coupons-
Grand total - $5.01 and received $6 back in extra bucks

2nd trip - now before you skeptics out there ask yourselves,"How much money did you waste in gas making all these trips to CVS?", I never made a special trip, there was always a CVS on the way to where my travels took me, so there! :o)

1 Tide 100oz - $5.49 minus $.50 coupon
1 Bounty 8 roll - $6.49 minus $.35 coupon
1 Dawn Dish washing Soap - $.99 minus $.25 coupon
1 Duracell AA 16pk - $8.99
minus $4 off a $20 order coupon
minus $6 EB earned last time
Grand total - $11.64 received $5 in EB

3rd trip - 1 Crest ProHealth toothpaste - $3.29 minus $1 off coupon
total - $2.44 and received $3.29 in EB

4Th trip - Here's where it starts to get fun!

2 Robitussin Cough syrup $12 minus $6 off coupons
2 Advil Cold and Sinus $8 minus $4 off coupons
1 Crest ProHealth Toothpaste - $3.29

Grand Total - $1. 72 plus received $13.29 in EB!!!!!

5Th trip - This is the grand finale!

1 Children's Tylenol $5.50
1 Children's Tylenol Plus Cold $6.00 minus $3 off coupon
1 Tylenol Cold - $5 minus $1 off coupon

2 packages of Dentyne Ice - $1.19
minus $4 off $20 coupon
minus $13.29 EB
Grand Total - $.59 plus received $10 in EB and have a $5 rebate

In summary - I spent $21.40 out of pocket, for $78.81 worth of stuff, I will receive $5 rebate making the $21.40 now only $16.40 and have a $10 EB waiting for next time! Now when Randy realized he had to buy lunch today because there is no food in the house he said, "If you would have made 27 trips to the grocery instead of CVS we might have some food!" OUCH! Guess I need to figure out the Kroger deals this week!
Gatlinburg bound,
