Super Savings Saturday

Wow! I can't believe it's been a week already. Where does all my time go?

It's Super Savings Saturday time again. I don't have much this week but I'll show you what I got anyway. First up: my mailbox has gone crazy with all the free samples of stuff I'm getting. It's been a real treat going to get the mail these days. Here are just some of the goodies I've received lately. Notice the free Swiffer Sweeper there it the back. Sweet!

My only shopping trip this week was a short dash to CVS. Since I won't be treating myself to a professional color anymore and I'm not about to "grow old gracefully" at the ripe ol' age of 39 by letting the grays run amuck, I'm doing my own color out of the box. Lucky for me, CVS had a special this week.
The Garnier was buy $15 get $5 ECB's back.
The children's Advil was $5.49 with $5.49 ECB's back making that a wash.
I threw on a candy bar (which mysteriously disappeared before the picture was taken) bringing my total to $22.60 (approx).

I had $20.00 in ECB's to pay with but before I could, the extremely nice manager tells me he has a $3/$15 coupon and asks if I'd like to use it. Umm...yeah!

Well, I'm just .40 cents short of $3.00 so he asks me if I want to throw another candy bar on so he could run the coupon. So I add another candy bar (which also mysteriously disappeared before the picture was taken) bringing my total to $3.10.

After he swipes the coupon my total OOP ends up being just .10 cents and I walked out the door with another $10.49 in ECB's. WooHoo!

Now where did those candy bars go?
