CVS, Target, and KMart

Noah and I were busy this morning!! We dropped Logan off at daycare at 9 am and were out running around until we picked him up at 12:30. He only had one little meltdown which caused me to forget why I really went to Kmart. That will teach me not to organize/go through my coupons before I go there when they're having double coupon days! I got all of the items pictured (didn't include the pop in the Kmart picture - too tired to carry it in the house) for only $10.97!!

Our first stop was CVS:
1 Crest Pro-Health toothpaste $3.49, get $3.49
2 Softsoap hand soap refills $3.99 each, $4 ECBs wyb 2
1 CVS reusable tote $.99
-use (1) $.75 Crest coupon
-use (2) $2 off Softsoap coupons
-use (1) free CVS tote coupon
-use $5 ECBs
=$2.11 OOP, received $7.49 ECBs

Second stop was at Target:
4 packs of Mott's applesauce $1.69
1 Cascade rinse $3.14
3 GE CFL light bulbs (raincheck item $1 each)
-use (4) $1 off Mott's coupons (Target printable)
-use (2) $.55 off Mott's coupons (Mott's website)
-use (1) Try me free Cascade coupon (Right at home booklet)
-use (3) $1 off GE energy light bulb coupons
=$1.79 OOP!!!
Third stop was at Kmart:
3 12 pks. Dr. Pepper $4.69 each
1 12 pk. Mt. Dew $4.49
2 Gillette body washes $4.49 each
1 Veet bladeless cream $4.49
1 Aquafresh toothbrush $3.79
-use (4) $2 off pepsi product coupons (Pepsi/Frito Lay mail offer)
-use (2) $2 off Gillette body wash coupons
-use (1) $2 off Veet coupon (Reinventing Beauty mag)
-use (1) $1 off Aquafresh toothbrush coupon
=$7.07 OOP

I had originally gone to Kmart to return something for Mike and pick up the item in a different size. I also knew I wanted to pick up the Pepsi products since I knew I would pay less than $1 for a 12 pk. of pop but then I got distracted because I knew they were doubling coupons. Before I knew it I was trying to sort my coupons and Noah wanted out of the carseat! I rushed through and found the pop and some other items and completely forgot about picking up the things for Mike. Oh well, I'm sure we'll want to get out of the house tomorrow so we can go up there then :)

I also found a try me free mail-in rebate for the Aquafresh toothbrush so I will mail in for that. I should get $3.79 back for that. I found them up by the customer service desk at Kmart. I only had one $1 off coupon, otherwise I would have bought more.

The April Charity Challenge will take place the week of April 6-10! I hope you'll participate!

So your Target lets you use more than one coupon per transaction? Do they just force them through, or are there no beeps?

Sarah - I used Target coupons and mannies so I was able to stack the coupons for the applesauce.

Hahaha - I just got back from CVS - I even took Logan with! And I've bought 6 of the softsoap refills on my one card and I still haven't maxed out the deal. I'm thinking of convincing my Mom to go there again tonight!
