About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

CVS Deals Week of May 15-21

So I didn't find anything great on sale at CVS that I was super excited about but here's what I picked up this morning:

One Lady Speed Stick Deodorant - on sale for $2.99 with $2 back in ECB's.  I used a 50 cents manufacturer's coupon so my final cost with ECB's was 49 cents.
One 40 count box of Band-aids and one Neosporin ointment - Buy $7 worth of these products and receive $3 back in ECB's.  The Band-aids were $3.69 and the Neosporin was $6.49.  I used $1.50/2 manufacturer's coupon and a $3/$10 healthcare purchase CVS coupon that printed from the kiosk today.  My final cost with coupons and ECB's was $1.34 each.

Six packages of Big League Bubble Gum - Ty's birthday party is coming up in a little over a month and I'm starting to buy items for the party.  It will be a baseball themed party (more details later) and these packages of gum will go in the party favor bags.  I had some extra ECB's to spend and apparently this bubble gum is a seasonal item that isn't always in stock.  They were 99 cents each.

Total spent out of pocket was $5.31 with a savings of $15.00.  I also received $5 back in ECB's to be used on my next purchase.  The sad part of checkout was remembering that I forgot once again to bring in my green bag.  Does anyone else have as much trouble remembering this as I do?

  1. Oh man! Do you keep the green tag with a bag in your car? I put it right under my purse and coupons when I head out to CVS. Having kids (especially during the pregnant stage) has a way of making us forget! Don't worry it will eventually become part of your routine. Glad you got the "baseball" gum! =)
