My first CVS trip with coupons :)

I could have done better on this trip had I stuck with the original plan and bought the 99 cent Dawn instead of the $3.50 Sunday paper, but it had 4 coupon inserts in it as opposed to 1 in the one I bought earlier in a different town. Since I am new to couponing I figured I'd get the paper until I figure out a subscription--the first paper I bought today was in my town and the other in the next town over, makes me wonder what the inserts were in the home delivered papers. . . .

Had I stuck to the plan I would have spent $9.79 and got $10.29 in ECB, this way was $12.28 and $10.29 in ECB. I didn't have 4 of the airwick coupons and I can't tolerate them so I didn't do the airwick. I also decided to use the 4/20 coupon instead of doing separate transactions, it would have been less out of pocket but fewer ECB to roll over, and I figured as I get more coupons it would be good to roll some ECB over. I also decided not to get the allergy meds (if I switched out the paper for the allergy meds this is a much better deal) because I don't need them and I don't know anyone who uses them, and I have promised my hubby I won't buy stuff we don't use

I got:

the tampons 6.79
the suave body wash 2.99
optic toothpaste 3.99
garnier shampoo (we need shampoo--this is why I need to coupon so I can get better deals) 2.99
crackerfuls 2.50
the paper 3.50, ugh

I used the following coupons:
$4/20 from signing up for the beauty club
.75 suave (website)
1.50 toothpaste (paper)
2.50 crackerfuls (cvs machine)
1.00 garnier
99 cent catalina from the hershey bar last week

Got the ECB for the tampons, toothpaste, and body wash so $10.29 to rollover. I'm happy, I needed everything I got (hubby is happy too). Can't wait until next week and I'm off to check my 4 new inserts

You did great! I usually use my x/xx or % off cvs coupons to help out my deal when buying a newspaper too or use ebs to help keep my oop low. There are some good coupons so you will probably save more than the cost of the paper. Good job!!
