This week at CVS and Kroger

I braved the weather to visit CVS for a few items. They didn't have everything I planned to get in stock, but it was still worth the trip.

  • Garnier Fructis Shampoo
  • 1 pack Orbit gum
  • 2 packages of medicated item I tend to need toward the end of pregnancy (Trying to spare you too much information. You're welcome.)
  • Candy bar (needed a filler item to use my whole Extra Buck coupon)

Used 3 manufacturer's coupons for shampoo and unnamed medicated items.
Used one Extra Care Buck coupon
Paid $0.24 out of pocket.
Got $4 ECB back.
Made hubby happy by bringing him a candy bar.

I also got 16 rolls of toilet paper free at Kroger (on sale for $.99 for a 4 pack, and I used 4 $0.50 off coupons, which my store doubles.) And milk was only $2.34 per gallon this week - the cheapest I've seen it in these parts since last spring!

Kroger has great deals right now! Today I'm going to buy 3 Kelloggs products for $8 (but I have $2 worth of coupons), and then you get 2 gallons of milk/OJ FREE!! So, 3 boxes of cereal, 1 milk, and 1 OJ for $6. Pretty good! I hope they're not out of stock...
