28 June - incredible savings!

I just had to share this. I mean Wow! - really great shopping at CVS today!
1 bag goldfish crackers (this was my splurge item): normally $2,
after sale & coupons (ASC) = $1.00
1 Aveeno shampoo
1 Aveeno conditioner
2 Aveeno styling products:
normally $31 total; 
ASC + $10 Extra Bucks reward + rebate = FREE
1 John Freida shampoo & 1 conditioner: normally $14 total;
$0.50 ea. ASC + $3 Extra Bucks reward = $1
3 Betty Crocker Warm Delights: normallly $6.87 total;
$0.13 ea. ASC = $0.39
6 packages Stayfree pads: normally $42 total;
TOTAL: normally = $95.94; ASC + rebate + tax = $3.05

SO, I ended up paying $3.05 out of pocket after using coupons, Extra Bucks from my last CVS purchase, & getting a $10 cash rebate for my Aveeno products + I have $13 in Extra Bucks to use on my next purchase. In that sense, it's like I was given $10 in store credit to get all this stuff! I'm officially converted to couponing.


  1. Those savings are amazing! What's ASC? please explain your saving savvy! I would love to learn!

  2. ASC is "after sale & coupons"

  3. I have 3 Sunday newspaper subscriptions, so I can get multiple coupon books each week. I mostly use My Frugal Adventures blog to figure out all the good deals. I have a link in the left-hand column under "Coupon Shopping." I basically do all my shopping at CVS, Safeway, & Raley's. I rarely go to Wal-Mart & Costco.

  4. Yeah!! Great job Liz and you can submit that rebate for Stayfree as well for the little freebie kit.

  5. My shopping trip looked pretty similar! Welcome to the couponing world (again!) :)

  6. Woo hoo!!! I'm so proud of you!! I had so much fun the other day getting my free Naked juices, bottles of water and something else I can't remember... now that I'm back from a month of vacations, I'm excited to jump back in to couponing. You go girl!!
