CVS and Walgreens Coupon Shopping

After our playdate yesterday, the boys and I did some quick stops for a few deals.  First we went to CVS:

  • CVS Jumbo Pack Diapers: $6.99, get $2ECBs (limit 1).  
  • Colgate MaxFresh Toothpaste: $2.99, get $2.49ECBs (limit 2).  Used $1/1 CVS coupon (red coupon box) and $0.50/1 (SS 04/29/12) = paid $1.49, got $2.49ECBs.
  • 5 Dawn Dish Soaps: $0.99 each.  Used 5 $0.50/1 (P&G Home Made Simple mailers) = paid $0.49 each.  We go through a lot of these doing dishes at least once a day, but the price per ounce is about the cheapest I've found doing it this way.
  • I used $3ECBs that I had, so I paid $8.52 and got back $4.49ECBs.
Then we went to Walgreens:

  • 4 Starbucks Refreshers single cans: $1.49 each.  Used 4 free coupons (PepsiCo insert 4/29/12) = 4 free!
  • 2 Blue Diamond Almonds: B1G1 $3.99.  Used 2 $1/1 (SS 3/4/12) = paid $1.99/2.  Jesse likes almonds for a snack, so I get them every now and then when they're cheaper.
  • With tax, I paid $2.43.
We also stopped at Kwik Trip for eggs (on sale for $0.99/dozen), bananas, and onions, spending $5.62.  So far we've used a good chunk (about half) of our grocery money for the month, but we are now well stocked on toilet paper and vitamins, and we still have plenty of diapers from the bulk order last month. 

I want to try to have a bit of extra grocery money this month to buy some portable snacks for our trip at the end of May to Wisconsin for a few family graduations/parties.  It's much easier to feed the boys single serve fruit cups, crackers, and fruit snacks (special travel treat!) than to do big containers of yogurt or fruits/veggies that we might do at home.
