CVS, Week of 8-22

It’s been a while since I bought paper towels, and this was a good enough sale to stock up. We use cloth towels as much as we can, so now I won’t have to buy paper towels for a very long time! This week I bought:

  • 2 Bounty 12-pack paper towels, $12.99 each with two $1 P&G mailer coupons and $10 ECBs = $14
  • 1 Blink eye drops, $7.99 with one $1.50 internet coupon and $7.99 ECBs = profit of $1.50
  • $1 ECB for my fourth bag tag scan
  • One $5 off a $25 purchase CVS email coupon

Net cost: $6.51. What a great price! I don’t think I’ve ever done that good on paper towels before.

I’ve always been on the fence as to whether I should include the cost of newspapers in my tallying. You won’t see me purchase any newspapers at CVS for the next six months; a friend passed on a great deal for our local paper ($1 per week for 26 weeks, Wednesday and Sunday papers*), so I have two subscriptions now! I guess I’ll just keep it as it is; whatever I bought at CVS stays in the tally.

YTD OOP: $98.82
YTD Savings: $1389.76
YTD eBay sales: $30.69

*Call and ask to get the subscription without the TV guide to get it for $1 per week instead of $1.25 per week. This is a great way to get the Sunday coupons if you don’t regularly buy the paper; this way, it comes to you every week! Thanks, Kathryn!
