I got high this week

At CVS, that is! It was another amazingly wonderful week for me at CVS. I hope this doesn't
come across as boastful (because let's face it, I made enough mistakes my first 2 months of CVS to make up for any amount of money saving I'm doing now!)

And if my CVS didn't take competitor's coupons, I would not have made such a killing. I'm still riding the wave of my infected finger and am the proud holder of a $10 CVS gift card (which I actually forgot to use in the purchase of these products. It took me 2 hours after leaving the store $1.23 poorer to finally let it go.) But that just means I have that $10 to put toward a future purchase.

It is indeed true, I paid $1.23 out of pocket for all of this stuff. Because I had some great coupons (from the paper and off the Internet) and I had two different $5 off of a $25 purchase Rite Aid coupon (that's where the competitor thing really comes in handy) I was able to get all this stuff for so little AND walk away with 14.50 in ECBs.

Again, we need another razor like we need another hole in our head, but hey... they were free... and I got me some ECBs. What's a girl to do? So I hope I'm not being annoying with my CVS posts, but I just have to show off my scores somewhere. My next venture really needs to be an increased saving at the grocery store. But that feels a bit overwhelming and like I would REALLY need to get organized. With CVS I can kind of fly by the seat of my pants and spend minimal time preparing. Krogering is a whole different ball of wax. I want to shoot myself in the head going there as it is, forget getting organized with my coupons. Ack! Plus, I need to remain sober some of the week!

OK... so what is an ECB? There is a new CVS at 70th St. by the Cates. I'm down there occasionally, but probably not enough to make it worth trying to get deals. Plus, no paper with coupons. Anyway, it is amazing. Give razors as gifts next Christmas! :)

I agree it is pretty amazing! Maybe someday I'll have the energy to give it a try. I don't think I have a CVS but we have Rite Aid and Walgreens.
