This week I bought some amazing items at CVS for basically nothing and got some super cheap items from Walmart that I will be using to make gift baskets for my assistants at work.
Here's what I bought at Walmart:
I purchased 5 body butters, 5 soaps, and 5 foot soaks. I am planning on making gift baskets for all my assistant teachers at work and I managed to get all of these for only $11.77!!! That is 5 gifts for under $15! I may even include a gift card in the basket since I saved so much money on these items, we will see!
At CVS I purchased:
7 Burts Bees chapsticks @ $2.99 each or a total of $20.93.
2 Almay eye makeup wipes @ $6.99 each or $13.98 total.
2 Crest toothpastes @ $2.99 each or $5.98 total.
1 Colgate toothpaste @ $3
For this transaction I used the following coupons:
$1 off Colgate from this past Sunday's paper
$2 CVS coupon off Colgate from the MCM
(2) $4 off Almay product
$3 off $15 beauty products from the CVS MCM
I also used $14 in ECB's, and then used a 20% off shopping pass from this past week CVS circular.
This brought my total down to $8.29!
I paid the 8.29 out of pocket and walked out with $11 in ECB to use next time! Not bad at all!
I love when I get products for free that I (or my family) can use. My mom uses Crest toothpaste (and is very particular about only using this kind with scope) so it was nice that I was able to pick that up for her. My dad will use any toothpaste, whatever is cheapest (he is such a guy). I handed him over the Colgate since I won't be using it.
I already use the Almay makeup wipes and you all know by now about my obsession with Burts Bees so this trip was totally worth it =)
I also did some non-coupon shopping this week, but thought I would take a minute to talk about store rewards. I am a Beauty Insider at Sephora, something you simply get by signing up for a free rewards card. For every dollar you spend you get one point. For every 100 points you can pick out a free sample, I save up my points until I find samples that I really want!
I purchased this Nars blush and bronzer duo, the colors are Orgasm and Laguna. Beautiful, beautiful colors.
I had over 200 points which meant I was able to pick out TWO samples! I chose the Bumble and Bumble thickening hairspray pictured below:
I also picked the Origins Clear Improvement charcoal mask, something I am so excited to try! I have been hoping to try Origins products for quite awhile, I was excited to see a sample by them as an option.
The nice cashier also gave me a free sample from Philosophy of their almonds and cream shower gel. Gotta love free samples!
How did you do this week with your coupon shopping? Find anything good? =)
