It's Not the Luck of the Irish...It's Pure Skill!!!

I ventured out tonight with a few specific missions; diapers, formula and soda.  With a few freebies mixed in, I did okay!


My plan for CVS was to take advantage of the spend $30 on select baby items earn $10 ECB.  I did that with three packs of Pampers at $9.50 each and one box of wipes for $3.  I used three $1.50/1 Pampers Cruisers and 1 $.75/1 Pampers Wipes coupons.  I also found CVS Training Pants on clearance for only $3.62, a savings of 75%!  

I paid $39.23 and earned $10 in ECB.  Without sales and coupons, my total would have been $84.63.  That's a savings of 54%!


I was SO excited for a great deal on chicken this week.  Family packs of Shaw's chicken breasts are only $1.99 a pound.  To make a great deal even better, each package had a peelie on it for $1 off WYB Kraft Fresh Take.   Here is the breakdown for this deal:

Four packages of chicken, regularly priced at $44.80

This was my fourth time using the $2 Hannaford Coupon today, and it went a little differently.  I have been using these very rare coupons to stock up on baby food, paying only $.01 or $.05 per jar.  Tonight I wanted to get some Jalapenos, but they were priced at $1.97, not quite enough.  I headed over to the baby aisle and was pleasantly surprised by this display:

How could I resist?  I got a CoverGirl concealer and lip gloss for free!!!  There were also Revlon and Almay products on this table (at the Windham store, check yours).  

Here are some coupons you should grab before heading out:

$1/1 Revlon Color Cosmetic from the 3/11 RP
$1/1 CoverGirl Product from the 3/4 P&G or 2/19 RP

I also stopped at Walgreens to pick up 8 FREE 8x10 prints.  I happen to have four different Walgreens photo accounts, plus I used two different promo codes for 8 free pictures!  This is a total of $23.92 worth of pictures for free!

Tonight's Grand Total OOP $134.14 plus $13 on total future savings earned!
