Ooh I had fun this week! I was most excited about the Easter baskets; I've already altered them to use for storage in my sewing area (more to come later). This week I got:
  • 4 bags of Reese's and M&M's, $2 each, no coupons (impulse buy) = $8
  • 1 Reese's egg and 1 Cadbury egg, $0.50 each (impulse buy again) = $1
  • 3 bags jelly beans, $0.88 each (yes, again) = $2.64
  • 2 bags Easter grass, $0.79 each with $0.79 ECBs each = free
  • 1 Skintimate shaving gel, $3.49 with $3.49 ECBs = free
  • 1 Colgate Maxfresh, $2.99 with $0.75 newspaper coupon and $2 ECBs = $0.24
  • 1 Schick Intution razor, $9.99, and one blade refill pack, $10.89, B1G1F and two $4 newspaper coupons = $2.89 for both
  • 2 Nivea lip care, $2.99 each, B1G1F and two $1 newspaper coupons = $0.99
  • 2 Bamboo Easter Baskets, $1.99 each with $1.99 ECBs each = free
  • 2 newspapers
  • One $5 off a $25 purchase CVS coupon
My total cost ended up being $11.01, and with all of the impulse candy purchases, I don't think that is bad at all. And I'm keeping everything but the grass, so it's nice to get things that I'll use again. I got a coupon for $20 off a $100 purchase printed out... keep posted to see if I use it next week! It will be a challenge to see if I can use it without spending a lot out of pocket. Hopefully they will have a good Easter sale so that I can use it! :)
