This is why I'm all hounded out... or in a rut, or exhausted from shopping.. because it takes ALL WEEK for me to figure out which deals I wanna do and then I finally go out and once I get to the store I wind up figuring out new deals and reworking and working.. and then this store is out of the one thing I really needed to make this deal work.. ahh but then another store has the product and makes up for it with a better deal (somehow) and then I over buy making sure I got every deal.. confused? I know I am too!
FIRST STOP CVS
2 choc covered raisins 88 cents each
24 case water bottles $3.99
1 schick quattro $7.99
1 cvs moist wipes $2.19
$1 off 2 gold emblem candy
$2 off CVS skincare
$2 off CVS water bottles
Total $3.03 with tax got back a $5 ECB from the Schick razor2nd transaction
$5 CVS coupon for gas-x (printed with receipt)
2 BOGO glade coupons
2 $1 gas-x manufacturer coupons
$1 CVS suncare from scanner
$1/2 Gold Emblem candy from scanner

$2 not sure what this is from but it balances the candy being rung up wrong and now I see only 3 $1 coupons rung up.. hmm. oh well
Total $1.89 OOP no ECB's used, none given
***just a little note**** just wanted to post my CVS totals from when I started hounding to now. Not even sure of the date! I guess I could look up my first transaction. It was sometime in June. But as of 8/11 (what my receipt is saying from today) my YTD savings is $584.26 and my SUMMER 2008 spending is $86.58. I guess that's not bad. wonder where other people are at?
Okay, don't ask me who was pulling this deal together because really.. I walked in there with my $5/$20 coupon not having a clue other than I needed some school supplies and that flex folder thing. Other than that.. it was a total blurr. things got messed up at the register so I had to get the CSM to fix it for me so I'll just list each item.
Kelloggs Cereal 3/$10 used one $1/2 and received 5 RR
5 Star Flex Binder #42 in Easy Saver Catalog so I'll get $5 back $7.99
2 Mead 5 class notebooks BOGO 50% off $7.99 each but they had them in the wrong spot so I thought they were $4.49 each so I showed the CSM and refunded me $6.47 and I got to keep the nice big notebooks.
3 sharpies 39 cents each
3 papermate 10 pack of pens 39 cents each
Quattro razor $2 easy saver coupon and $4 manufacturer coupon
$5/$20 and a $4 RR from earlier this week. OOP $20.xx (plus of course I got the $5 RR and a $5 easy saver so I see it as spending $10 OOP)
Okay.. another strange trip. I thought I better ask first if I needed to buy 4 boxes of the 100 cal packs. They were BOGO so before their sale 4 packs was over $12 and in order to get $10 off the Fruit of the Loom deal (socks) I had to spend $10 in Nabisco products. I wasn't sure if that was before or after the sale prices. So I asked.. of course CS had no idea but said "go get all your products and come back and we'll figure it out". Okay.. of course I get everything, get to the register and the CS guy was at lunch by then. So another CS person came up and finally I said "let's just ring it up and see what happens" and of course I had to buy 8 to get the deal. Oh well.. so here is my break down. again.. I'll just list product/deal instead of coupons at the bottom. still with me??
3 4pks of joint juice $1.63 each $1/1 coupons on each
(why do some fonts skip two lines and other just go down to the next line?)
9 Powerades 69 cents each 3 $1/3 coupons
1 meow mix 75 cents FREEBIE
4 cat litter sale for $1.61 4 $1 coupons
4/$5 pop tarts used 1 $1/2 coupons PLUS 2 Nutrigrain bars $1.80 each (5/$9 sale) used 1 $1/2 coupon PLUS 2 eggo waffles $1.15 each used 1 $1/2 coupon to get backpack $11.99 on sale $10 off equals $1.99 total
8 nabisco 100 cal pack (bogo) total $12.78 to get $10 off Fruit of the Loom products. Socks $3.99 got all three for $1.97 plus used $1/2 coupon.
