So, I’ve made it clear that I am by no means an extreme couponer. This little mommy doesn’t have the time for it! 🙂 I honestly didn’t plan out today’s trip at all, other than making a list of things I needed and taking my coupons with me. Normally I’m much more prepared, but I was busy the past few days and just trying to get out of here with the munchkins this morning.
The above photo is today’s haul at CVS. I used a 25% off non-sale items, CVS coupons, in-store sales, and manufacturer’s coupons. Since I don’t get things I won’t use or be able to quickly give away/donate, there are alot of deals I completely ignore, and I buy the things we really need whether it hurts my final tally or not. Anyway, today was not my best score by a long shot, but it wasn’t too shabby for an unplanned trip to CVS to get several things we were needing. 🙂
Grand Total: $131.23
Total Spent: $51.63
Total Saved: $79.60
Savings Percentage: 60%
I also have $14.00 in Extra Care Bucks to spend for my next trip, since I didn’t have time to plan it out well enough to use them up during today’s transaction.
Since I was mostly buying things we really do need, and other things we’ll very much enjoy, I’m happy with that. Hopefully next time my savings percentages will be more “normal” for me, though. 🙂

CVS is one of my favorite places to shop. I’m bad about stockpiling shampoos, toilet paper, etc. I get weird if I have fewer than 12 boxes of cereal in the pantry – because the House of Cheaptitude goes through 2-3 boxes each week! Great job on your unplanned trip!

CVS is definitely one of my favorite bargain shopping spots, also! I am always ahead on things like shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc. I save so much more that way than I would waiting until I had to have it. Thanks!
