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 August 16 - 22

I stopped at a new CVS downtown Portland today and their coupon kiosk wasn't working so I missed out on a couple of deals.  And I forgot about the 5 cent plastic bag fee they put in place a couple months ago.  Oh well...life goes on.

I made two transactions out of these purchases.  Toothpaste, body wash, and soap went on the first transaction.  My total was $6.08 after coupons and ECB's, I saved $29.16, and I received $11 back in ECB's.  The laundry detergent (normally $7.29 each) was on the 2nd transaction and my total was $5.41 after coupons and ECB's and I saved $24.40.

My grand total for everything was $11.49 and I saved $53.86 and I have $6 ECB's to be used on my next transaction.


  1. Hi there. i like your post.... do you have a breakdown of what you did, which coupons you used, etc?

    1. Sure! I used two $1 off Colgate toothpaste coupons and one $1 off 2 Colgate toothpastes. I found two coupons online from swagbucks and the other coupon was from Sunday paper insert. I also used a CVS kiosk $2.50 off $9 oral hygiene products. I used two $2 off Shea Moisture coupons found off Swagbucks for the bar soap and body wash. I also used a CVS kiosk $2 off $11 purchase of body wash. The toothpaste transaction gave me $6 back in ECB's and the Shea Moisture gave me $5 back in ECB's. For the laundry detergent, I just used two $1 off 2 Tide detergents from the Sunday paper insert.
