CVS 4/19: Wow!

I think this might have been one of my best trips EVER! I am still excited about it. :o) It did take me 3 transactions, so here they go:

Transaction 1:
John Freida Shampoo, Conditioner, Mousse $5 each
coupons used:
3-2.00 off any John Freida MC
3/15 CVS coupon
2/10 any beauty CVS coupon (Fitness magazine)
got back 5.00 ECB

Transaction 2:
Maalox Mint 5.49
Gas-X gels 5.79 each
Benefiber Chewable 6.49
Coupons used:
2-$1 off any Gas-X MC
1.50 off any Maalox MC
2.00 off Benefiber MC
3.00 off any Benefiber CVS coupon
5.00 off any 2 Maalox, Gas-X CVS coupon
3/15 CVS coupon
5.00 ECB, 2 ECB
Total OOP: .06
got back 10 ECBs

Transaction 3:
2 Revlon lipsticks 7.99 B1G1
2 L'Oreal HIP products 8.49 B1G1
NYC eyeliner 1.99
1 Sally Hansen Nail Polish 2.79
coupons used:
10/20 CVS cosmetics coupon
2-$2 off Revlon MC
2-$2 off L'Oreal HIP product MC
.50 Sally Hansen MC
2.89 ECB
Total OOP: came to -.13, so my cashier just fixed it so I didn't owe or get back anything.
no ECB earned

I don't usually do that, but I was tired and didn't feel like looking for a cheap filler item. I had planned on paying cash for this purchase and saving my ECB, but decided to go ahead and use it. I have the 10 ECB from transaction 2 to work with next week. I haven't been doing as much shopping as I have in the past, so that will be plenty for me. I think today was a great day for me. Now I have to get myself to actually WEAR the makeup!

I LOVE CVS! Be sure to check out The "Cent"sible Sawyer for more CVS savings ideas!

Great job! I don't often get my totals to negative either.. try to avoid it, but when it does happen they always make me buy something :)
