Saturday, September 13


With hurricane Ike being here in North Texas, all of our stake leadership meetings were cancelled this morning. So, I took the opportunity to go to CVS.

In our area, they are doing new dates with their sales ads. Our ads now run from Friday through Thursday. I haven't really liked it, mainly because I am used to following the deals of other frugal bloggers and their ads still run Sunday - Saturday.

Well, I did ok on my own today. There is a deal where if you spend $10 on skippy peanut butter, Ragu spaghetti sauce, mayo, etc. then you receive $3ECB back. We go through a ton of peanut butter, so I was all over this deal, especially since there have been recent coupons for these items.

Transaction #1

6 Skippy Peanut Butters on sale 3/$5 - used 3 $1 off 2 coupons and received $3 ECB
1 Excedrin gel caps on sale for $3.99 and received $3.99 ECB

So, I essentially paid $4 for these products. Of course, I used ECB to pay. :)

Transaction #2 (Corey's card)

4 Skippy Peanut Butters on sale 3/$5 - used 2 $1 off 2 coupons
2 Ragu Spaghetti Sauce on sale 3/$5 - used $1 off 2 coupon - received $3 ECB
1 Excedrin gel caps on sale for $3.99 and received $3.99 in ECB

Same deal as above - $4 paid with ECB.

I did 2 transactions, because the skippy/ragu deal and the excedrin were limit 1 deal per card. If I get more of these coupons, I might start cards for Alexandra and Noah to get more peanut butter.

Do any of you have more than 2 cards for your family? I know Stephanie does. :) Is it hard to keep track of it all?


  1. You are so good to find those deals and actually go out and get them. It is such a pain for me to go out to a store just to get 1 or 2 items. Maybe I'm just lazy!!! I really need to start shopping around for better deals. We spend way too much at the store!!

  2. I do not like the friday to thursday deals either! I can't see what new coupons have come in! Little Lizzie slept through a feeding again last night! I got some sleep! YEAH!

  3. I wish I could keep up with all of the sales that you do! At least I get to hear about some of them from you! I feel like I never get to see you guys anymore. We need a girls night out!! I need to show you my new bracelets, too. I love them! I just posted them on my blog. Let me know what you think.
