My Under $1 CVS Shopping Trip for the Week of 5/18/14 ~ Share Your Trip with Us (Link Up)


Here is my CVS  deal shopping trip for the weekly ad of  May 18, 2014.  I started with $12 of extra bucks in hand, spent 60 cents and ended with $10 of extra bucks and $50+ worth of products.  I started with the three Nuetrogena bars rolling my $10 extra bucks with paying nothing out of pocket.  I would have liked to roll it again as I haven't reached my monthly limit, but they were out of bars.

I just loved the free mouthwash deal as we care for my mother and she told me she ran out this weekend--perfect timing!  I also was thrilled to have enough coupons and a CVS scanner coupon to make the Revlon eye shadow a slight money maker.  That will be put away for Elizabeth's Christmas stocking.  You can see the full details of my CVS shopping savings in the spreadsheet below.

I am loving the great printable coupons lately.  I would much rather print a coupon than deal with the Sunday insert coupons, tho I am faithful to do both, I lean heavily on printables for the bulk of my savings.  Here are the printable coupons I used in case anyone wants to get these deals (you can print two of each):

$2.00 off any Colgate Mouthwash
$0.50 off ONE Dawn Hand Renewal, Power Clean
$0.25 off Dawn Ultra
Save $1.00 off any TWO (2) DOVE® Silky Smooth Chocolate Large Bars (3.07 oz - 3.3 oz)

What I paid (I did three different transactions so I could roll my extra bucks--I've highlighted the three differently below but the totals are for the complete trip):
Once I was what I would call a "Committed CVS Shopper."  I spent the time to get dozens of deals each week worth hundreds of dollars for just pennies on the dollar.  But currently I can only handle being a "Carry Over CVS Shopper," using my extra bucks earned one week on the next week's deals.  But I still find ways to save big on necessities for my family.  You may enjoy reading the five CVS Shopper Personalities to see which you are or which you may want to become.

Nice work. I love cvs. I bought 4 12 packs of coke and used $5 ecbs and a free 12 pack coupon. Since the cokes rang in at $5 each and then deducted $8 to make them 4/$12, the coupon took off $4.99. I paid $2 and change oop. I noticed that the cokes counted as $20 toward the gas card deal so I made a later transaction of Huggies, a 2 liter coke, and a gallon of milk. I Used a $3 Huggies coupon and paid $12 and change oop, but received a $10 gas card, $1 ecb,.and $0.50 Ibotta.

Great combo of savings! Love the Cokes went towards the gas card and you were able to spend just a little over the $10 gas card amount to get it free. Great Trip! Thanks for sharing.
