Got some good deals…


Very excited about all of the things I was able to pick up this week. It’s always a fun surprise when a $5 ECB spits out of the magic coupon machine at CVS because you hit another $50 spent on beauty products. I had problems at CVS using the P&G coupons…the cashier said I could only use one of my Covergirl coupons at a time because the coupon stated 1 coupon pur purchase. YIKES. Cashiers always confuse the term purchase with the term transaction.

  • PER PURCHASE – Each item that you purchase is a single purchase. The wording on a coupon that says “one per purchase” is letting you know that you can use 1 coupon per item purchased.
  • PER TRANSACTION – a transaction is your entire order. Typically P&G allows 4 like coupons in a single transaction.

I didn’t feel like fighting with this cashier…she was Jamaican and feisty and she did let me use the coupons and just do 3 separate transactions so I let it go.

  1. Cvs had a VERY small selection of the 90% off BTS! I was a little mad because the day before they told me they were not going to activate the markdowns until Sunday, (while they were stocking the section) I went in and it was all gone!!! I donate to boys and girls club and also my daughters school so this was the sale I lucked out on! Boo! Lol!

    Also I posted a tour of my stockroom! You should come check it out! I would like to know what you think!
