Back At It At CVS

Feeling good after having two good weeks of couponing in a row! Thanks to the people I follow on Instagram who spotted the Axe body wash & deodorant on clearance…because they were NOT marked clearance at mine!!

Another reason why CVS is the absolute best…easy scanning! Sometimes I feel like I scan the entire store but it’s definitely such a big help! I never would have found these deals if I didn’t scan them first!

Couponing in 2014

20140121-071535.jpg

I got this awesome email from CVS last week. Look how much money I saved at CVS last year!! All that free money! To be in the top 13% of savers in only my first real year of couponing feels really good.

Truthfully I haven’t been finding many great deals in 2014. I did find some really great Christmas clearance finds at CVS a few weeks ago that will be great for my present closet I am starting.

My mom has had a present closet for as long as I can remember and I think it is a really great and practical idea. Always good to have gifts on hand for last minute presents or just presents you got at a really great price!

I picked up some things over Christmas and post Christmas that I got amazing deals on that will be perfect presents down the line!

This Week’s Haul: It’s not much but I’m getting back into it!

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.
