What Can $5 Buy You??

You can get all this:
After Logan's swimming lessons this morning I decided to brave it and take both boys to CVS. I had some ECBs to roll and I had heard that the magic coupons machines were spitting out some great coupons! I did end up getting a $10/$50 coupon, a $5/$30 and quite a few other ones. I'm hoping to use the $10/$50 to use up my remaining high dollar ECB (I have a $15 one left).

I did two transactions. Here is the breakdown:

Tanya's card:
Gillette fusion razor $7.99, get $4
-used $4 fusion coupon
Huggies diapers $8.99
-used $1.50 Huggies coupon
4 Honey Nut Cheerios $1 each
Gain detergent $5.99, get $2
-used $1 Gain coupon (P&G coupon saver booklet)
2 Kotex products 2/$6, get $2
-used $1 Kotex coupon
-used $1.50 Kotex coupon (out of Reinventing Beauty mag.)
-used $5/$30 CVS coupon
-used $12.99 ECBs
=$2.77 OOP, received $8 ECBs

Mike's card:

Coppertone nutrashield sunscreen $8.99
-used $5 Coppertone coupon (no longer available)
-used $3 CVS coupon
Huggies diapers $8.99
-used $1.50 Huggies coupon

I used the CVS coupons courtesy of IheartCVS. Click HERE to print them out. I will also be submitting for $1.50 back from Caregiver's Marketplace for purchasing Huggies diapers. So how did you do at CVS this week?

You are lucky that your CVS takes the i Heart coupons. I quit using them because I always got questioned & made to feel like a thief for trying :(

I have a question about your button. How do you make one of those? I would love to get one for my place :)
