CVS Trip of July 12
Before shopping anywhere, including CVS, I always make my list using the store's ad and the blog resources you will find in my side bar over there ---->
Here's what I bought:
10 folders - on sale for .05 ea.
3 packages of Papermate pens - on sale for .99
2 notebooks - on sale for .99
2 scissors - $2.99
1 Gillette Fusion power razor - on sale for $7.99, used $4/1 MQ from 6/7 P&G insert
1 gift bag - $3.79 (this was not a frugal purchase, but this bag was perfect for my gift)
1 Bday card - .99
1 newspaper - $1.75
Sales tax = .54
And here's the breakdown:
Total before sales and Qs = $43.49
Total after sales and MQs = $22.49
Used $17 Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) from previous CVS trips
Total out of pocket (oop) = $5.49
+got $14.93 ECBs back (from pens, notebooks, scissors, and razor - all free after ECBs)
Net = profit of $9.44!!
