My Trip. Week of 1/31

This week I got some pretty good deals. (I had some helps with my pictures)

Rite Aid:

Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste: $2.99

Complete MPS: $7.99

– $1.00 Colgate coupon

– $2.00 Complete coupon

$8.53 (remember what I said about Rite Aid and the change. This purchase will only count as $8.00 in my book)

Will receive $2.00  and $7.99 via SCR

CVS:

2 Dove Men + Care Bodywash: $5.49 ea.

Colgate Maxfresh Toothpaste: $2.99

Playtex 2 pk sippy cups: $4.99 (typically $7.99)

– (2) $1.25 Dove coupons

– $1.00 Colgate coupon

– $10 ecbs

– $2 ecbs

$4.31

Received $12.98 ecbs

Shaws:

4 Ronzoni Pasta: $1.00 ea.

Package boneless chicken breasts: $5.21

Orville Redenbacher 3 pk popcorn: $2.99

– (4) $0.75/1 Ronzoni coupons (doubled)

– store coupon to get another popcorn and 2 sodas for free

$6.30 (and no tax, how did that happen?)

I saved $18.20 and got $0.50 overage on every box of pasta I bought!

My next project is to get ready for an exciting Money-making week at Rite Aid! More details next week!

My trip. Week of 1/24

This week was a little slow, but still very profitable!

CVS

 

This week there was a great deal featuring chips. A lot of stores are running promotions on various chips and sodas because of the Superbowl and even though I will not be hosting a party I still saw a way to make a profit. The deal was purchase $20.00 worth of ‘chips’ and get $10 ecbs.

4 bags of Lays Chips: $14.00

2 Bags of Stacy’s Pita Chips: $6.00

– (4) $1.00/1 Lays coupons (found taped to bags of chips and tearpads at Hannaford stores)

– $1.00/1 Stacy’s insert coupon

– FREE Stacy’s product (from Facebook Fan promotion)

– $12.00 ecbs

= 0

Received $10 ecbs.

I saved $22.54, paid absolutely nothing out of pocket, and walked away with $10.00!

Rite Aid

Nothing big caught my eye this week except for the Maybelline mascara deal. All Maybelline cosmetics are 40% off this week (1/24-1/30) and there is a $2.00 SCR  on any Maybelline mascara.

1 Maybelline Great Lash Blackest Black Mascara: $3.11 (normally $5.19)

– $1.00/1 insert coupon

– $1.00/1 Video Values coupon

= $1.22

And I will get back $2.00 via Single Check Rebates. Something that should be noted is that when calculating spending, profits, etc I do not count $0.50 or under. That can be confusing so here is the breakdown for this transaction. I spent $1.00 on the mascara (using my Rite Aid cash, as I call it, refer to previous post for more details) and the $0.22 came out of  change. I will get back $2.00 so I essentially made a $1.00 profit on the mascara. Now if the mascara had come to $1.87, I would have paid with $2.00 from my RA money stash and would have gotten $2.00 back, making the purchase free, but not profitable. The $0.13 in change would go with my other change and would not count for anything. This can be a little confusing and is something I recently adapted for this year to make calculating profits much easier for me.

Shopping Trip: 9/15/09

I’m a day late posting this but here goes. Yesterday I went to Hannaford, Shaw’s, and CVS for groceries and free stuff. You may notice I have not been frequenting CVS as much as I used to. The deals are a little slow at the moment but I am keeping a small stash of ECBs that I have been rolling on good weeks. I am hoping to keep a good stash going into the holiday season when the deals get super hot!

Just a little side note I wanted to bring up: I do my basic grocery shopping at Hannaford. I look for sale items but I also buy my normal everyday items here as it is the cheapest ‘everyday’ price grocery store I have around. You may notice that I always buy an odd combo of items at Shaw’s. This is because their prices tend to be higher but their sales are way hotter than Hannaford’s. I don’t go to Shaw’s every week but when there are some good items on sale I make sure to allow time to stop there during my weekly trip.

Shopping Trip: 8/30/09

Today I hit up CVS and Shaw’s. Unfortunately for me these stores are a 30 minute drive (on the interstate) from my house and I cannot easily run to these stores daily so I have to plan out what I need for the week and make one trip. I wish these stores were closer, but hey it’s Maine, so I don’t expect much.

CVS:

I havn’t been shopping CVS much lately because I had built up my ecbs to a ridiculous amount and was having a very tough time rolling them each week. So at the beginning of August I seriously burned them down to almost nothing. I had a $5 ecb on each card that were going to expire this week, lucky for me it was a good week with products I really wanted to try. The ‘FREE CVS item’ coupons also helped too.

Here is what I got:

100_0766

1 Glade Fragrance Collection Diffuser: $6.99 – $2.00 coupon = $4.99

2 Bayer Contour Meters: $14.99 ea. – (2) $14.99 coupon= FREE

2 CVS Mild Antibacterial Hand Soaps: $1.69 ea. – (2) FREE CVS emailed coupons= FREE

1 Burt’s Bees Lip Balm: $2.99 – $2.99 coupon (from a campaign a while back) = FREE (but silly cashier forgot to ring this one through without me noticing!)

1 CVS Cotton Swabs 750 ct: $2.50

1 Clairol Natural Instincts Loving Care: $4.99- $4.00 coupon = $0.99

1 Bounce 2 month Dryer Bar: $3.99- $2.50 coupon (Vocalpoint) = $1.49

Total ecbs spent (between 2 cards): $10.00

I paid $0.58 (just tax!) and $3.54 (which was the price of the Burt’s Bees and tax on the other items. I’m a little mad because the lip balm was supposed to be free, but honestly I would have purchased it anyways and paid full price because I like it, still, I had planned my trips to only be tax today. Errrrr.) Total oop: $4.12

I saved $188.03 (those meters are pricey!!!)

I received $19.99 in ecbs for a total profit of $15.87!

^That right there is why I love CVS (most of the time) and why I take the time to shop there. I made a $10 profit just on the meters alone. That was a FREE $10! I can turn around and use that to buy a pack of diapers, making them FREE!

 

Shaw’s

There wasn’t a whole lot of things that sparked my interest at Shaw’s this week. I wouldn’t have made a special trip but since I was in the area already I figured I would pick up a few things.

Here is what I got:

100_0768

2 Ronzoni Smart Taste Pastas: $1.00 ea. – $1.00/2 (printable) coupon = $0.50 ea.

2 Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas: $1.00 ea. – $1.00/2 (printable) coupon = $0.50 ea.

1 Dozen Eggs: $0.99

3 Betty Crocker Brownie Mixes: $1.00 ea.

1 Betty Crocker Cake Mix: $1.00 ea.

2 Yo Baby 3-in-1 meals (1 is missing from picture): $1.33 ea.

There was a CAT deal running for spend $20 and get $5 OYNO and the Betty Crocker items were included. I chose not to take part in this deal because we didn’t need/ eat a lot of the items that were included. We have a baby and obviously he doesn’t eat things like Chex Mix. I still thought the brownies and cake mix for $1.00 ea. was a pretty good price.  Also you may notice that I typically just buy the grocery items that we need for the week. But, when a good deal comes along I do like to stockpile. The brownie mixes are a stockpile item (I was down to 1 box, yikes!) and I would subtract the money I spent on them out of my monthly stockpile allowance instead of my monthly grocery budget.

Total: $9.66

Saved: $8.62
