This Is Gonna Be A Long One

Since I've been dealing with two sick little boys all week I HAD to get out of the house tonight!  So where else to go but CVS right?  I did three transactions while I was there.  This week isn't too good when it comes to ECBs deals but they did have some others that I wanted to score on! 

Here is a breakdown of what I bought:

Trans #1:
2 Colgate toothpastes 2/$5, get $2
used $.75 Colgate coupon
used $1 Colgate coupon
Huggies pull-ups $8.88
used $2 Huggies coupon
2 packs 16 qt. storage containers $6.99 (BOGO)ss
used $5/$20 CVS coupon
used $9.99 ECB
=$3.08 OOP, received $2 ECBs

Trans #2:
2 Oust air freshener $3.99 each, get $3
used BOGO Oust coupon
2 Wonka gummies 2/$4, get $1
used (2) $1 Wonka coupons
2 Bioluxe products $9.99 (BOGO)
-look for ones with try me free rebate
2 Sterilite containers $5.99 (BOGO)
used $5/$20 CVS coupon
used $10 ECBs
=$8.35 OOP, received $7 ECBs + $9.99 rebate for Bioluxe

Trans #3:
Huggies $8.88
used $2 Huggies coupon
2 All HE laundry detergent $3.99 each
used (2) $2 All coupons
2 Bioluxe products $9.99 (BOGO)
-look for ones with TMF rebate
used $5/$20 CVS coupon
used $13.97 ECBs
=$2.14 OOP + $9.99 Bioluxe rebate

So as you can see I did use up $33.96 in ECBs and only received $9 back BUT I will be getting another $18.97 back in the form of prepaid Visa cards so I really don't have anything to complain about.  As I said before, CVS had some other deals that I wanted to do including the storage containers (for my stockpile), the Bioluxe rebates and the Huggies.  These transactions are some perfect examples of how you can use up ECBs - you might not earn the same amount back but you still have some to roll for next time.  And look at all the stuff I got!  This is the first trip in quite awhile that I will be able to use everything that I bought in all of my transactions for one day :)

I want to get some of those totes with the blue lids for holding my hanging files :)

They would be perfect for that Sarah! I stocked up on the containers since they work perfect to hold my stockpile stuff in. One of these days I need to do a post with a picture of my stockpile :)

I am the sort of hombre who passions to seek recent things. Currently I am building my own pv panels. I'm managing it all by myself without the aid of my men. I'm using the net as the only path to acheive that. I encountered a really brilliant website that explains how to make photovoltaic panels and so on. The internet site explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure about how correct the information given there is. If some guys over here who had experience with these things can have a peak and give your feedback in the page it will be awesome and I would extremely appreciate it, because I truly like solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. You guys are the best.
