Couponing for the Rest of Us

CVS: 75% OFF Christmas Clearance! (Hershey’s Kisses $.44!)

CVS Christmas 75% OFF Clearance is HERE!

I stopped by CVS today and lo and behold – they finally marked everything down to 75% OFF!!  I spent almost $32 buying stuff for next year – and I couldn’t be happier with my haul!!    Please tell us what you got – we love to hear about your finds!

The main thing I bought were Hershey’s Kisses – not that I need them (these hips don’t lie!) – but I’ll be using them to make Valentine goodies pretty soon.  They were just $.99 per bag – and I used the $1/2 coupon HERE to make them only $.44 per bag!

.

I also picked up several great stocking stuffers for $1.25 each for next year – like:

  • kaleidescopes
  • headlamps
  • spin art sets
  • slinkies

Some of these are just going in the gift closet for upcoming birthday parties.  None of the ones I picked look Christmasy, so they’ll work for anything!

Be sure to see if they have any furry Ugg-style slippers left – they’re only $2.50 each!  I didn’t get any of those – they were all too small  :(

I couldn’t leave without getting all of next year’s wrapping paper and bows – here’s what I got in that area:

  • Giant Wrapping Paper Rolls – $1.50 (Reg $5.99)
  • Bags of Bows $1 (Reg $4)
  • Gift Bags $.50 (Reg $2)
  • Big Gift Bags $1 (Reg $4)
  • I even scored some cool new LED color-changing lights for about $3.75! (Reg $14.99)

Useful things not to miss!

There are also some unexpectedly useful items on clearance – like a roadside emergency kit, which would be perfect for sending along with your college-bound kids.

I bought myself an awesome little socket wrench and screwdriver set for $3.75 (reg $14.99) – and it will be all mine!  I’m going to write “Mom’s Tool Box” all over it with pink puffy paint and rainbow stickers so my husband won’t touch it :)

 

My total after 75% OFF clearance was $51 and change – but I had a $10 off $50 coupon as well as a couple $1.10/2 Hershey’s Kisses Coupons, bringing my total down to $39.  Then I also had $7 from my Winter Spending – making it just $32.  That was for around $200 of Christmas stuff – so I’m very happy!

  1. I was the second one at the store today. I saw two ladies loading up their truck with about 10 Big VS bags of stuff. They told me that CVS had a very good sale. I went in; The 50% sale caught my eye, but when the cashier said that this morning they marked them down to 75% off I knew it was time to stock up. I bought several packs of wrapping paper, gift boxes, gift bags, and name tags. I bought some household items (wall hangings, flashlight, desk fan). I only spent $11.75 OOP for all of the stuff that I bought. I had $14 ECB’s that I used.
