We've had a great week making great deals!!

Darlin Dan went with me on Sunday! We had such a great time. Darlin Dan was so excited when he gave the cashier at CVS 28 cents for $52 worth of merchandise, while getting back $30 back in ECBs. The battery deal is such a perfect deal if you have the $5/2 CVS coupon. I was able to get 4 of them on Saturday. The cashier had them behind the counter and she would've given me more, but I honestly didn't think I would use more (stupid me). Anyway, our Sunday super shopping- OOP $19 for $220 worth of merchandise and we have about $70 ECBs between us.

I'm still waiting for my Walgreen's GC................I have a couple of deals to make on Friday/Saturday!!

I saved my 5/25 CVS coupon for Sunday's sells. I wasn't able to get to CVS until the afternoon, so I missed out on a coupon of the deals I wanted. Here's what I got:

I did grab that CVS wrinkle decreaser cream on impulse-it did get me $5 ECB and I could use the 2/10 CVS Q I got out of the magic machine. I needed to get my total purchase to $25 and this CVS was out of St. Ives body wash and the Listerine Cool Agent, so my total was off.

I started with $16.48 of ECB's. Now have $21.58 of ECB's. Wanted to have a lower cash OOP, but I'm happy overall with the deal. Still learnin this game..............

WAGS Good Deal

Good deals
I read on someone's blog about the Goody (hair accessories) ouchless coupon on the internet and how you could combine it with the walgreen's coupon in the December rebate book.......I got a very nice hair brush for .99! (stocking stuffer)
I also read about the Soleil razor deal-I had already cashed in on the other razor deal at wags and had some Soleil $3 coupons. Wags has $3 coupon in the December rebate book................ $.99!!(nice stocking stuffer)
I then took advantage of the sale price of Tag spray for men-$2.99 and I had a $1 coupoon-a good stocking stuffer for 1.99!
I really went for some 9V batteries-Walgreen's has a b1g1 store coupon-searched high and low and finally found those suckers....got 4 9V batteries-1.98(necessities)
Didn't use any RR's have another week before they expire.

So here's the totals
18.93-subtotal
-12.98 coupons
+.48 tax
=6.43 OOP

Not a perfect deal, but got some very nice items to tuck away for X-mas!I'm impatiently waiting for my $73 GC-my first WAGS rebate!!

2 transactions

#1 4 scented oil candles-apple cinnamon @ 2.50 each

2 B1G1 free coupons=

$5.00 OOP

Receive $5.00 Target GC

#2

2 scented oil candles (last two in store) @ 2.50 each

2 scented oil candle refills @ 2.50 each

1 B1G1 free coupon for candles

1 1.50 off for 2 refills =

6.08 OOP

Receive $5.00 Target GC and bonus of $5.00 off Grocery Purchase of $50 or more at Target!!

Kinda good deal at Target


So I was chasing the perfect deal at Target.........The one where you buy 4 glade holiday products and get a $5.00 Target gift card. These products are on sale for $2.50 and I could smell a perfect deal.

I wanted the glade candle holders on sale for 2.50 (I could use a buy 1 get 1 free coupon) and could make a perfect deal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
However, easier said than done, I guess these puppies are almost sold out. I did get 2 plug ins and 2 candle refills and 1 candle(had to throw it in since I found 1 in all my searches)

I used a b1g1 coupon for the plug ins and a $1.50 off coupon for the refills.
Paid OOP about $8.00 and got a $5.oo Target GC. I could've deleted the candle and saved $2.50 plus tax, and my deal would've been close to perfect! Just couldn't resist the candle (and it had more coupons inside the box!).

Will try 1 more Target today!!
