The husband picked up a double paper for me today. Much to my disappointment, there were no P&G coupon inserts in either paper! I was not a happy coupon clipper this morning. Oh well, I had to make due with what I had and let me tell you, it wasn't very much.

First stop was CVS. I decided to do the Bounty/Charmin/Duracell buy $20 get $10 ECBs deal.



Bounty Paper Towels 8 pk - $5.99
Duracell 'AA' Batteries - $2.99 x 4 pks
Duracell 'AAA' Batteries - $2.99

Subtotal: $20.94

- $5.00 CVS Coupon ($5 off $15)
- $0.75 Duracell Coupon
- $0.75 Duracell Coupon

New Subtotal: $14.44

Used: $3.00 & $11.97 ECBs.

Paid: $0.61 out of pocket. :)

Earned: $10.00 ECBs.

I did a second order too. I don't know why. I think I justed needed my CVS fix!



Listerine Smart Rinse - $3.49/ea. x 2
Oral B Toothbrushes - $6.99
CVS Bandaids - $1.99/ea. x 2
Caramello - $0.79

New Subtotal: $13.74

Earned: $17.95 ECBs.

Next stop was Walgreens. They have coca-cola 2 liters on sale for $0.89. I've noticed the price of 2 liters slowly creeping up higher and higher later, so I'll take the $0.89 over $1.79 some stores are charging, ouch.



Coca Cola 2 Liters - $0.89/ea. x 5
Stainless Steel Water Bottles - 3 for $10.00
Shaving Gel - $3.99 (not pictured)

New Subtotal: $16.55

Not a great deal, but we need the water bottles and usually they are $15+ each!

Finally our last stop was Publix. The husband was notified that he'd be working overnights for the next 5 days, and not even at HIS work, but at a location an hour and a half away. :( We ended up splurging on a lot of microwave meals. No point in cooking when we'll barely see each other. So there wasn't really a lot of "real" grocery shopping this week...



Coca Cola 6 pks - $2.50/ea. x 5



Stouffers Meals - $2.50/ea. x 8

(Lasanga & Chicken A La King)

- $1.00 Snuggle Coupon
- $2.50 Coca Cola 6pk Coupon
- $1.00 Ragu Coupon

New Subtotal: $34.36

Not too shabby. We checked out separately so we could use two of the $5 off $35 coupons since I ended up with four of them. I'll use the other two when we actually do some real grocery shopping. Here was our second Publix order...

The Meow Mix coupons were for a FREE cup of food and I had 2 of them. They're on sale at Publix for $0.40. When the cashier entered the coupon amount, it doubled it! Overage! Not much, but hey, every penny counts. Hopefully next week the husbands schedule will be back to normal and we can do some real grocery shopping. This week was incredibly unhealthy!

By the way, if you find any laundry detergent deals I highly recommend you start stocking up! I just read a few articles about the cost of laundry detergents (ALL of them) going up 20-30% due to "higher energy costs". :(
