Couponing for the Rest of Us

CVS Trip: $83 of Tide, Scott Towels, Almay for $12!


Here’s my little CVS trip from last night – it was snowing and sleeting and the kids wanted new cereal and milk – so I braved the cold like the super-mom I am :)  Also, I just really wanted some Diet Coke (please note the not-full bottle).  In the end I spent $11.57 on over $83 in merchandise.  I’m pretty happy about that – even if I didn’t have coupons for a couple of the items!

Personal Note: I wanted to get more of the Scott – but they were out of toilet paper, I also wanted to get that darn Venus single razor for free – but they didn’t carry it at my store.  It’s ALWAYS good to bring some coupons for other items so you can make a backup plan on the fly!
