Thrifty Thursday, AKA, "I'm not late--I meant to do that!"

I think I may be setting myself up for failure with these alliterative tittles.  In case you didn't notice, Funny Friday didn't get up until Sunday and Money Monday is now so late, that it's Thrifty Thursday (which works, too...). 
I finally got to CVS on Tuesday and got a few deals and picked up rainchecks for the rest of the stuff.  I was able to do everything in one transaction because I've been saving up my ECBs to redeem a raincheck for some $30 toothbrush heads.  Hopefully, I'll be getting those this weekend with my quarterly extrabucks, which start printing tomorrow.  Good news for you: if you bought ANYTHING at CVS since March, you'll have ExtraBucks waiting for you tomorrow (or the next time you go)--they round up to a whole buck. 

Here's what I got:
(5) Honest Tea $1 ea.
-(5) $1/1 Honest product (recyclebank coupon)
(1) bag Twizzlers pull'n'peel $2
-$1/1 Twizzlers CVS coupon (there is also a $0.75 manu. q in Smart Source 6/26, but I forgot about it)
(l) Lady Speed Stick $1.99
-$1/1 Lady Speed Stick deodorant CVS coupon (from the coupon sheet at the front of the store or in the Reinventing Beauty Magazine)

Used: 2 ECBs from last week ($0.22 tax)
Got back: 3 ECBs (2 for Honest Tea, 1 for Speed Stick)

So I got $15+ worth of stuff for $1 profit!!

FYI, there are some 900 coupons that expire today, so it's about time to clean out your coupon binders (don't feel bad about tossing them--there will be other coupons for these same items very soon).

Be sure to check out Southern Savers later today for next week's coupon match-ups.  I'm thinking it'll be fun!

On another note, I FINALLY saved 51% at the grocery store Monday.  I was SOO proud of myself!  I've been couponing for 10 months now and I've never really been able to do that!  Yay!!  I took advantage of some awesome sales Weis was running on meat and coke.  If you get a chance to get out, check out For The Mommas for coupon matches for grocery stores in the area.
