I go through the ad and clip out each deal I want to do. Then I glue them to a sheet of paper. When I shop, I can just look at my paper to match up the items and sales I want to do and don't have to flip through a 20 page ad to find the right sizes or quantities of items needed to make a deal.
Then I get out the coupons I need, any ECBs and my CVS card and paperclip it all together.
Below is my receipt from this week's deals as well as the $14 ECBs I earned for my next shopping trip.
I spent $10.48 total on my purchases. My receipt says I saved $67 or 87%
The cashier applied a 25% off toothpaste app coupon, she also applied a $5 Almay app coupon even though I bought Revlon. I questioned it and she just shrugged and said her screen said it was eliglible.
