Thrifty Thursday and Deal Idea!

Well, CVS disappointed my this weekend: not even one lil' freebie.  I went on Saturday because they had sent me a 5/25 coupon and I needed diapers.  I was hoping to hit that sweet spot on Saturday evening (there was a descent diaper deal "last week" and a good price on Zantac "this week").  But, I guess CVS has gotten wise to the issues streaming from running two sales at once because there was a sign on the door that they would no longer change over the sales on Saturday night.  Oh well.  I had a backup plan and got 2 packages of diapers and 4-12 packs of coke for $20 total and I'll save my extrabucks for the awesome Schick deal next week. 

Here is my haul from Weis (yes, I did just call it a haul--I guess that makes me "extreme").  I got almost $100 worth of groceries for $50.  Some of the highlights of my trip were: $0.20 bagged salad, 24 jars of baby food for $6, half off feeding supplies, and 8 packs of Gatorade for $4 each (makes it $0.50 each).  I didn't make it to 50% this week, but I splurged on full price organic apples (I'm going to try making my own baby food) and O.J.(a necessity when I'm sick).

CVS has a GREAT deal this coming week and the best news is: you don't need newspapers! 
The deal is: when you buy $20 worth of products (BEFORE coupons), you get 10 ExtraBucks.  If you've been saving your inserts like me, I have a great deal idea for you:

(1) Schick slim triple disposable for her ($8.39)
(1) Schick Slim Twin Disposable (7.99)
(1) Skintimate cream shave (3.99)
(note, these are the "shelf prices" at my store--your store may have slightly different ones, but you want to hit $20 according to the shelf price at your store)
(1) BOGO Schick disposable razor (Smart Source 6/26) (will take off $7.99)
(1) $1.50/1 Skintimate cream shave (printable)
(2) $2/1 CVS coupon for any Schick disposable razor (printable) (It says ENERGIZER in red)
Total due:
Get back:
10 ECBs

It's like getting paid $3 to take their razors!!

If you haven't been saving coupons, you can still get free razors.  Here's how:

(2) Schick Xtreme3 disposable razors ($8.49)
(1) Skintimate cream shave ($3.99)
(2) $3/1 Schick Xtreme3 disposable coupons (you have to "like" them on Facebook) (printable)
(1) $1.50/1 Skintimate cream shave (printable)
(2) $2/1 CVS coupon for any disposable razor (printable) (It says ENERGIZER in red)
Get Back:
10 ECBs

Schweet!  I love making money on stuff I need!  I'm also hoping to work some diapers into the mix.  I'm pretty certain that CVS is going to be decimated by the time I get there on Sunday evening, but that's okay, CVS's rain check policy is awesome, so, now or later, it's a great deal!  There are actually a number of great deals at CVS this week.  Check out Southern Savers for great coupon match ups.
