CVS 1st attempt - WOW! That was cheap!

So I haven't really tried out this extra bucks thing before, but they threw a bunch of coupons at me, and I saw posts on the blogs I follow about the match-ups (extra bucks + coupons = saving a lot of money), so I figured I'd try it. Here's what I got:
  • BIG OL' PACK o' Huggies Naturals Wipes (214 wipes)
  • 36 ct Huggies Size 2 Diapers
  • 40 ct Huggies Size 1 Diapers
  • (2) Pantene Shampoos
  • (2) Kellogg's Raisin Bran
  • 6 ct Bounty Select-a-Size Paper Towels
  • Schick Hydro 5 Razor
  • Honey Altoids
Total Cost: 7.93

Coupons I used:
  • $15 Extra Bucks on any purchase (this came through email)
  • $4 off $20 @ CVS (this came through email)
  • $2 off 2 Pantene
  • (2) $3 off Huggies
  • $5 off Schick Hydro
  • $2 off Huggies Wipes
  • $2 Extra Bucks (used on 2nd ring up, earned on 1st ring up)
  • $3 Extra Bucks (used on 2nd ring up, earned on 1st ring up)
  • $4 Extra Bucks (used on 2nd ring up, earned on 1st ring up)
This is like a game to me. I love it!

Want to know the funny thing? We went for half price frappuccinos at Starbucks afterward and I spent $7.14 for 3 frapps - almost the same as what I spent at CVS for all that stuff. This makes me LOL.


  1. Gotta love the price of coffee to the price of diapers(!) and unfortuantly both are nessessities to mothers!!!!! Alas tis an aweful truth in these times! I have a pack of newborn diapers for you too fyi- I just found them unopened in a closet this weekend!

  2. Haha, isn't that the truth? I bought cloth diapers, but am stocking up on different sizes for overnights and car rides, etc. Thanks :)
