I loved this week in couponing


Ahhh look at all of this! This was an amazing week in couponing and it could have been ever better. Ever get up to the counter to check out and find you made a mistake, a good one, where you’re a few cents or dollars short of the ECBs you wanna use. And I panic because now there is a line and so I don’t make the most cost effective decision. That happened to me this week. I grabbed the toothpaste because it was on sale and close to the dollar amount I needed. But I could have gotten like 8 more shampoo/conditioners. Oh well.


  • (9) Gillette Women’s Shaving Creams – $1.98 each
  • (3) Neutrogena Mini Face Washes – $0.98 each

Coupons Used

  • (3) $6/3 Gillette
  • $1 off Neutrogena
  • $3.50 off two Neutrogena products

Total: RECEIVED $1.74!  Retail Value: $20.76. WOO. This also could have been sooooooo much better if I had bought the cheaper shaving cream…but they gave me trouble last week and these shaving creams were bigger and the girls’ version so I was still happy to make .02 off each shaving cream.

CVS Transaction #1

  • Revlon Eyeliner – On sale for $6.99. Regular Price: $8.79
  • Revlon Eyeliner – On sale for $6.99. Regular Price: $10.49

-WAH so much OOP for this one. But we needed toilet paper and this is the only kid my boyfriend will use. And overall it was still a decent deal and I got more ECB’s back than I spent. Many people would still consider this purchase a money maker…

  1. Wow! I was bummed because supposedly at Walmart they had Gillette shaving creams for $0.98, but all I could find were the $1.98 variety in stock.

    I am totally going to have to start shopping at CVS. They seem to have some great deals. Do you need a card there as well (like you do at Walgreens/Kroger)?

    • Target had the small size for .99!
      You definitely need to coupon at cvs. You need a card but it gets you coupons that you can stack with manufacturer’s coupons!!
