Super Savings Saturday

I haven't really been in the CVS game for quiet sometime except for a few trips here & there. I have found myself getting low in supplies so it's time to crank it up a notch. Starting over with CVS is not very fun when you have to start out with ZERO ECB's but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

CVS this week:

I got $98.56 worth of stuff for $40.84 OOP. Not the best I've done but, again, I'm starting over.
$17.32 saved with coupons
$40.40 saved with sales prices & clearance markdowns.
Received $16.00 in ECB's for next time!
Baby, I'm back!

Walgreen's:Head & Shoulders: $9.00 minus $2.00 mfg coupon, rec'd $3.00 in RR.
Garnier Conditioner: $16.98 minus $6.00 mfg coupons will receive $10.00 back in rebates. (I actually have to buy one more bottle of Garnier to qualify for the rebate. Luckily, I have more coupons).
Crest Toothpaste: $2.99 minus $.75 mfg coupon, will receive $2.99 back in rebate.

The best part was I paid for everything with my Walgreen's gift card loaded with $$$ from my previous rebate purchases. Nothing like using the same money over & over again to buy more necessities!

Garage Sale:

I stopped by a couple of garage sales last Saturday. One happened to be at a friend of a friend's house. I got there just as she was ready to close up. I ended up with this Little People garage for FREE because she knew me and she just wanted to get rid of it! The Boy LOVES it! At another, I found several little cars for him for $2.00. Eight of them actually but he made off with a few before I could snap a picture.

Love your blog! I saw this and had to comment. My 3 year old daughter loves little people and she thinks this is her castle. I do the toy rotation thing so the kids feel like they get new toys and I just rotated in the little people toys and she just can't get enough. She does incorporate in her little princess toys too. It is pretty funny.
What a great find. If your son plays as much with it as my daughter does, you made a great investment!
