CVSing for Donations the Week of 5/1 ~ More Operation Christmas Child Items

I was able to pick up a half dozen more items for my Operation Christmas Child stockpile.  Last week I picked up some men's deodorant for the 10 to 14 year old boy boxes, and this week I was able to get two for the girls of the same age.  The Ivory soap is great as it is mild and the fragrance does not permeate the wash cloth and plastic bag I put it in.  I also think this is
the kind I read will float which makes it nice if the child is in a country where they bathe in a river or other water that may not be real clear.

I paid $.00  plus tax (actually I "made" $.51 which I put toward the rest of my order.  Here is the detail of the deals I did:

2 -- Ivory 3-pack bar soap @ $.99 each
Used 2 $1/1 Coupon from Sunday's Paper (adjusted to $1.98)

2-- Dry Idea Deodorant @ $2.99 each get $1 extra buck each
Used a Buy one get one Free coupon from Sunday's paper

2 -- Colgate @ $2.77 each get $2.77 extra bucks each
Used 2 $.75/1 Coupons from Sunday's paper
