I made ONE PENNY today!

Today I started my CVS adventure. If you don't have a CVS near you, it is like a Walgreens. CVS has a special "Rewards" program. Kind of like a Rebate program. I am not going to go into all the details today (check back later this week), but I had to post about my awesome deals!

By using "moneysavingmom" (see link to right) I was able to buy $28.52 worth of stuff for FREE!

Here is what I got:

1 Revlon Nail Color
5 Sobe Life Water
4 Sierra Mist 2 Liters
1 Colgate 360 degree toothbrush
1 Aquafresh Extreme Clean Toothpaste
1 Addidas Men's deodorant
2 Excedrin Migrane (24 gel caplets each)

The total after all the EXTRA coupons I had (the items were on sale already) was:


Then with CVS you get $$$ back called ECB (Extra Care Bucks) The coupon for the amount prints at the end of your coupon and acts like a gift card to CVS.

I recieved $16.97 back in ECB.

So... I made ONE PENNY!

You can get these AWESOME deals too! Everything is still on sale/rebate this week (except for the nail polish... that was a 2 day sale). BUT, you need to make sure and do 3 things:

1. Click on my moneysaving mom link to get your extra coupons (they will tell you step by step how to get the deals I got and provide a link to print out your extra coupons)

2. Go to Wal-Mart and get the All you Mag. to get a coupon for FREE Addidas deodorant (you get it free anyway with the ECB, but this allows you to actually make $$ on it)

3. Go to CVS and make sure to get your rewards card before you check out!

Hope you have as much fun as I did. I love to shop, especially when it's for FREE!
So you don't technically have to get this coupon, but you can if you want!

okay so I'm probably going to sound like a stalker but thats husband knows your husband (Nick Briggs) I don't know if you know him or not, but his sister Amy Moore has a link on her blog to Chadwick's and I found yours from his because I am a stay at home mom too and when my daughter takes her nap I sometimes find myself board online reading random blogs..ANYWAY! you are my new inspiration, I've always wanted to do the whole couponing thing I just didn't know where or how to begin but now I do thanks to you!! I can't wait to start saving money!! haha I hope you don't think I'm a creap!

I wish I needed all of that stuff more ;). Sounds like a lot of work, but if you use that stuff sounds like it's worth it! :)
