My Mood:
Talking Rite Aid & CVS haul

So I recently became aware of the "thrifty" posts after purchasing lots of diapers through here and I got very intregued. I decided to start playing to see what would happen. This is what I got these last few days.

Prescription - $15
Electrasol $2.99 - $2.00 rebate - $1.50 coupon (-$.51)
Toothpaste - $2.89 I think - $2.89 rebate = free
L'oreal Shampoo - BOGO at the store with BOGO coupon = 2 free shampoos

So they paid me $0.51 toward my prescription. Should take about 2-3 weeks to get my rebate check.

CVS (1st purchase)
-2 nailpolishes, $.99 - free with coupon
-2 CVS panty liners, .99, $1.98 in ECB
-PediEgg ($9.99, full price but I really needed it for work shoes)
-Nutrogena mascara - $5.99 - $2.00 in coupons, $4.00 in ECB
-Then a $3/$15

So I spent about $13.80 and got $5.98 in ECB. I don't have a lot of coupons yet.

I would like to do the photobooks and if I get a chance I will this weekend, just don't have time during the week as I work. I love getting great deals! Thanks for all the great instructions ladies.

This is my next purchase
1 large photobook - $7.99
1 small photobook - $3.99
Use $5.98 in ECB
Total oop $6.39 (1/2 my 1st purchase)
Total ECB - $11.98

Then my next one
2 sure deoderants, 2-$1 coupons, 3 ECB, total oop $3.58
1 excedrin, 2 maalox, and one gas-ex, $7.50 in coupons, $15.56
$11.98 in ECB
So $3.16 OOP (cost 1/2 again) and 13ECB's

Sound about right? I am trying to get stuff I will use and also increase my ECB's. That last purchase may not happen, will have to see. It's not the best of deals, but I get each item sooooo cheap!
