My CVS Shopping List for the Week of 4/13/2014

Here is my shopping list for the CVS weekly ad of April 13, 2014.  A shopping list for CVS is more of a battle plan, once you are in the store you never know what will happen.  You may get a good scanner coupon, they may be out of products or any number of things can go wrong.  But I always make a plan...and "I love it when a plan comes together." ~ Cheryl

Beginning Extra Bucks:  $10

Ending Extra Bucks:  $7 approximate -- depends on facial deal

Approx. Out of pocket:  $1 to $3 depending on cosmetic prices

I will do more than one transaction so I can use the extra bucks from the first transaction on the second.  I rarely do more than two because of time, but it is a great way to keep out of pocket cost low.

Transaction #1:
Uganda girl's beautiful smile!

1--Get $4.99 ECB wyb 4 x 6 Photo Book $4.99

I am going to make a book of little girls who have received pillow case style dresses I have sewn for Dress A Girl Around the World.  I have images from here in the US and in Uganda.  Here is one of my favorite pictures...I made this NC Wolfpack themed dress in honor of a friend.

2 bags--Get $2 ECB wyb (2) Mars chocolate Minis 9-11.5 oz, bunnies 5-6 oz, Dove Easter chocolate eggs, Promises 7.94-8.87 oz or solid bunny 4.5 oz 2/$6
$1/2 Mars , Dove or M&Ms Easter products 2 oz or larger (RP 4/6) 

1--Colgate Max 6 oz, Total 4-4.2 oz, 2in1 4.6 oz or Optic White 4 oz $3
$0.50/1 Colgate Toothpaste 3.4 oz or larger, excludes 2.8 oz, 2.8 oz bonus, .75 oz or .85 oz trial (SS 4/13)
$2.50/1 Colgate scanner coupon printing week of 4/13

2--Ban Refresh Cooling Body Cloths 10 ct. $3.39
Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths FREE (deodorant aisle) up to $3.99 value (SS 4/13)

Transaction #2:

1--Get $3 ECB wyb (2) Garnier Facial Care (excludes towelettes and clearance items)  April monthly deal--limit 5
$3/1 Garnier Moisturizer, (RP 03/16/14) -- I have ONE coupon
Looking for a product as close to $3 as possible.

1--Get $1.99 ECB wyb Almay Color & Care liquid lip balm or eye makeup remover $5.99 Limit 1
$4/1 Almay Cosmetic product, including makeup removers (SS 4/13) -- I have TWO coupons TOTAL (for this and the next deal)

CHECK:  4--Bic Disposable Razors if in stock--I will use coupons and rain checks to make them almost free (about 28 cents each, I think)

Filler Possibilities (if I have more extra bucks to spend than my total):

I shouldn't need this, but if the scanner coupon gives me something unexpectedly or they are out of stock of something I may need it so I always like to check the add for a sale item or two to use as fillers.

Dawn 9 oz $0.99

I shop on Tuesdays and wait until Monday to make my list to see what coupons I get.  I buy two papers and often receive extras from gals who work with my husband.
