CVS - Last week of August 2015

I don't think I've shopped at CVS in 2 or more weeks.  Their sales were just not things I needed. 
But this week's ad interested me and I had $10 Extra Care bucks to use. 

Instead of writing out the sales I want to do, I started clipping out the ad sections I like and use a smear of glue stick to mount them on a sheet of paper.  I also paper clip the coupons for the deals, any ECBs and my CVS card to this list.
The key to getting good deals is be organized.  
Below is what I bought - I actually bought everything I planned too. 
Colgate toothpaste was free after the redbox $2 coupon and $1 coupon in today's paper.
The beverages are 2/$2 and give a $2 ECB.  My husband drank part of the Gatorade on the way home from church.
Any Tums are part of the Zantac deal- buy any 2 and get $5 ECB.  Each roll was $1.49 and I got back a total of $10 ECB.  So on these, I got back more than I paid.  
The Excedrin are spend $20, get back $10.  Excedrin works for me when I get a headache and with the coupons in today's paper, I really liked this deal. 

I spent a total of $15.24 in cash and got back $22 in ECBs.

  4. You did a great job! I miss the days of browsing for deals and having the change to 'invest' in them. :) It's ok, I know I'll have another chance. Oh and maybe this is helpful for when we miss a deal...wait around for the next year and make sure the money is set aside. :) just a thought.
