People often say they want to shop with me sometime. Seeing as no one actually has shopped with me, I figured they were just saying that. Well today, one of my MOPS friends and her husband actually went to CVS with me! I was so excited because they had a number of things they needed that were actually a good sale this week! They got 2 bottles of laundry detergent, a large package of toilet paper, and a large package of paper towels for $16 (retail value $36!). Saving 56% on paper products your first time out is great, guys! Way to go! As a bonus, I was able to make some money with my purchases! Here's what I got:
(2) Aveeno trail size lotions $1.49 ea.
(2) Smucker's preserves $2.50 ea.
-$1/2 Smucker's preserves
Total: $0.18 (only tax!)
ECBs received: 7 (for Aveeno--raincheck), 3 (for Smucker's)
(1) Holloween glowsticks $0.49 (Jesse likes to keep these in the car)
(3) Hallmark cards $0.99 ea.
Total: $0.67 (I used the rest of my giftcard)
ECBs recieved: 3 (for Hallmark)
Transaction #3 (now I know why I usually keep it to 2 transactions...)
(2) Schick Quattro 3 ct. $10.99 ea.
-BOGO Schick disposable razor ($10.99)
ECBs recieved: 10
Alright! I paid $2.05 in cash and have 3 more bucks to spend next week--it's like they paid me $1 to take $40 in merchandise off their hands!! Sounds like a good deal to me!
Oh, and I MUST brag about my shoe purchase today! I wear a size 12, so finding any shoes--much less a deal--is a miracle. 6pm.com is having an 11eleven11 sale for the day and had thousands of pairs marked down to $11 each with free shipping! They even had a solid 2 dozen pairs that were my size!!! So, I got a new pair of dress shoes and a pair of "eco" sneakers for $22 shipped!! I was EXstatic for a good two hours over this deal! I do have to pay for return shipping if they don't fit. Since that would probably cost $11+, they're basically non-refundable. But for that price, I'll take the chance for shoes I really love!
