Since I have been couponing, I feel like I am getting pretty decent at this little game. Of course, I am only talking about grocery stores. I am also okay with doing it at Walgreens. BUT, CVS is a different story! I am getting extremely stressed out and frustrated when I go to buy things and they aren't there. I am also feeling the stress of keeping my ECB's and trying to roll them into another purchase and KEEP the same amount of ECB's that I started with!
I just came back from CVS and realized that I probably messed up because I had a $5/$15 coupon but I didn't use it. Instead for some reason in my head I decided to use the $5/$30 coupon. (I had other items that I could have purchased to pull it up to the correct amount.) I could have easily used both of them in two different transactions. But, did I? NO, I got so confused because my perfect transactions on paper didn't work for me. AARRGGGHH!
Enough griping....here's what I got:
1- Cottonelle Toilet Paper--$12.97
1- Cottonelle Moist Flushable Wipes--$5.98 (perfect for potty training)
2- CVS Allergy Medicine--$3.97 each
22- Reese's Whipps Candy Bars--$1.00/2
Used: 1- 50 cent Q for Cottonelle Moist Wipes
1- $5/$30 CVS coupon (it was emailed to me)
13- $1.00/2 Reese's Whipps Candy Bars (for some reason my count was wrong??)
Paid with: ECB $8.99 and $9.98
OOP: 57 cents
EARNED: $4.00 ECB, $3.00 ECB, $7.58 ECB for next time.
Next week is a better week for me because they are having a sale on Huggies Products. I have $2.00 MQ to use along with some other good coupons. If you spend $20, you get back $10 ECB. Now, we are talking!
