CVS and Walgreens

Have I mentioned that I love CVS and Walgreens? If only I could get this site?! Someone beat me to the punch. But, in her CVS trippin' format...here's my latest

2 colgate toothpastes 2/$5
2 colgate toothbrushes 2/$5
1 garnier fructis hair stuff 2.99
1 Nasogel stuff 7.99
total 20.98

coupons used
4-75 cents for toothpaste and toothbrushes :$3
1-$1 garnier fructis styling product : $1
1-$4 off $20 CVS coupon : $4
total coupons: $8

Extrabucks used : $12.67

total out of pocket : .31

Extrabucks received:
$4 for Colgate products
$2 for garnier fructis
$7.99 for Nasolgel stuff
EB received total: $13.99

Total trip: eb received - (eb used + oop)
13.99 - (12.67 + .31) = +1.01

So I made a dollar! Plus, I got another $4 off $20 CVS coupon...so it's like I made $5!

We also hit up Walgreens (my SIL and family are visiting...she and I made the trip).

Purchased:
4 Reynolds Aluminum Foil 20ft: 99 cents each (using instant coupon from flyer) = 3.96
1 Electrosol Gelpac Diswashing detergent: 3.49
1 Garnier fructis sytling product: 2.99
1 Orajel brush cold sore product: 8.49
subtotal: 18.93
tax: .57
total: $19.50

Coupons used:
4 Reynolds foil $1 : $4
1 Electrosol dw : $2.50
1 Fructis styling product :$1
1 EasySaver Fructis coupon: $2
total coupons: $9.50

Oop (on gift card) : $9.02

Easysaver money earned for gift card:
Electrsol: $1.50
Orajel: $8.49
10% extra: .99
Total: 10.98

Total Earned: Easysaver - oop
10.98 - 9.02 = $1.96

So, in total I earned 5.01 + 1.96 = 6.97! (Plus got all the above products). I love couponing!

This is amazing. A New Year's miracle, if you will. I don't know if I have the time for couponing (or the brain.....because that whole post went a bit over my head), but this seems super cool.

I am filled with awe.

How can I be living in a country that doesn't have coupons?

So glad I'm not the only one in love with couponing. I get a lot of weird looks and comments when I break out my binder but its totally worth it, right? Congrats on the great deals!
