But, Thanks to my Sis n law telling me about a deal at CVS I had to pick up a prescription anyways and checked it out. The deal is if you buy any two Neutrogena products you get $10 ECB's, so they have a trial size 1oz Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 55 for 1.99 I didnt know if I was going to be able to find them b/c CVS was asked to pull them off the shelf, well you pay 3.98 and get $10ECB's that was a great deal for me! My store did have them, too bad it was a limit to 1 per card but I have 2 cards, mine and my hubbys and since I no longer work for them, I dont have to worry about getting in trouble for using both! lol
Thanks Alecia for this great deal!
Will be making a trip to Kroger this week they have some awesome stuff on sale! :D

Here is what I did .....
You know the glucose meters I was telling about at Wags that are giving back the $5 in RR, well CVS has the same deal this week with $5 in ECB's.
So, 1st Transaction:
1 Bayer Glucose meter Free with $5 ECB
1 Bayer dissolving cystal aspirin 2.00-1.50IPq=50cents with $2 ECB
Total: 57cents and $7 in ECB's
1 Nivea Sun Kissed Beautiful Legs Lotion 8.99
1 Nivea body wash 6.99 but Free with q if you buy the lotion listed above
Total: $9.74 used 7 ECB's earned above and had 1.00ECB from before that i had not used.
Total oop: $1.74 got $5 ECB from the Nivea
1 Pullups $8.99 used $5.00q = $3.99
6 Mailer envelopes on clearance $2.00
Total: $ 5.99 -$5ECB from Nivea = .99cents
Total oop for all 3 transactions: $3.30 ! :D pretty exciting if you ask me! lol

I have ended up with 5 meters but most stores are out of stock and I have no clue when they will get back in, the only up side is that they are on until the end of May!

If you saw something great at CVS that I might has missed please let me know!
Sunday, February 1, 2009
Good luck to everyone!
So, my CVS finally got in the Gillette razor I had been wanting and since my CVS is not a 24hr CVS their sale that starts on Sundays actually start on Saturday before at 3:00pm so you can take advantage of both weeks at one time.
Anyhow, I noticed that the razor is in this weeks ad as well as last week with the extra bucks even better for muah!
Heres the damage:
2 Gillette Body Washes
5 Gillette Shampoos
2 Gillette Fusion Gamer Razors
2 bags Lays Potato Chips
2 bags of Stacey Pita Chips
4- 2Liter Pepsi
2 Reeses Whipped bars
Total OOP: 3.56 YES that is RIGHT for ALL OF IT!
Ended up getting $23.00 in ECB's in my first transaction and $10.00 in my second used some of it and still have $17.00ECB's left!!!!!!!!!!!
This is what happened I had 2 coupons that if you bought any Gillette razor you got the bodywash for free, so I was going to use those q's since they expired yesterday, well the cashier kept trying to give me the razors free , ok the razors on sale 7.99 the bodywash was 4.99 I told her 3 times NO its the bodywash that is free not the razor she still disagreed with me so I finally said ok. Sooo I got the razors completely FREE and got 1 Shampoo FREE b/c she goofed again! I tried to tell her that was the crazy thing.
I couldnt believe how it turned out, I did the gillette first in one transaction got my ECBs back and then did the Pepsi deal and used some of my ECB's on that and still have 17.00 left over!
I took a picture of it all and will post it as soon as I can figure out how, if anyone knows how to put pics on here please let me know... Thanks! :D

Heres the damage:
12pk Coca Cola, Dr. Pepper products on sale 4/$7.99 Ok, that is less than $2.00 a 12pk that is awesome!
Then my hubby begged me for a shrimp dinner tonight, so I gave in and bought some raw shrimp, fried it tonight and thats what we had for supper. Used my gift card for all of it so
OOP $5.xx for my prescription
OOP for the shrimp and coleslaw and cokes $00 pd with gift card!
found some childrens books on clearance there too when I was leaving they were half off the lowest marked price, got a few of them for $1.00 each, used my gift card.
So yea, thats it in a nutshell! :D
So overall spendings on the Mega Sale for 2 weeks, $42.16
overall saved for the Mega Sale for 2 weeks, $231.xx , im not complaining! haha
Soo.... here is what I did, I went in of course they were out of the Reynolds wrap so I got my raincheck and no Sunsilk at this wags so moved on to the next one 3 miles down the road ( My husband swears he cant figure out how they stay in business with one on every corner... lol oh well not my worry just as long as they have what I want and its free who cares how many wags there is??? Right?? )
Second wags SCORE!! I found the sunsilk, paid 2.98 OOP and got 10RR and on top of that they had Reynolds wrap in stock, so I got that too! YAY , so I still have my raincheck for later.
Then I had got back to my van and forgot about the Colgate being on sale with the RR, so went back in there to get that! So now I have a total of $16RR! YAY For me... lol
So, then I went to CVS, I wanted to do the Fusion deal , but what stupid person would put only 1 type of razor with ECB in their ad and on top of that its apparantely a NEW item and NONE of my CVS's have it yet! What is up with that! So , I got my Gillette Shampoo and left ! lol
