Weekly Couponing Wrapup!

This week wasn't a big week in the couponing department- there was a ton going on so I really didn't have a lot of time to head from store to store getting the best deals!

Roxy had surgery this week- getting a couple cysts removed- one from her eye and one off her back. She is recovering quite nicely in her Patriots jersey (a nice alternative to being a cone head) and will hopefully be back to normal soon. We spent a lot of time coordinating our schedules this week so someone would be home with her at all times so we could make sure she was as comfortable as possible.

I did manage to head to Staples and pick up a ream of free paper! I love these free reams- I use a lot of computer paper and it is so nice to get them for free!

As a side note- if you don't know how the Staples easy rewards works: When you buy the paper you pay $6.99 up front, and then fill out a quick online form- then within a few weeks you will get a rewards check in the mail. I love getting these checks in the mail- and spending $6.99 up front isn't a huge deal when you know you will be getting it back soon!

I also went to CVS but was a little disappointed with the outcome. As I may have mentioned that someone had been using my card and stealing my extra care bucks so I e-mailed back and forth with CVS corporate and they have hooked me up with a new card. It's not here yet, so I didn't have my card with me when I completed this transaction.

I had a coupon for $5 off 2 almay products. I also had a $3 CVS coupon for Almay. I also had a coupon for $1 off 3 Nutrigrain bars. I ended up paying in almost all ECBs, my total was just over $4 that I paid out of pocket. I didn't end up getting ANY ECB back because I did not have my card. =(
I probably could have pressed the issue but whatever. I will just start again fresh once I get my new card!

I have already looked at the ad for next week at CVS and I'm hoping my card comes in so I can cash in on a few deals by the end of next week!!
