Last Minute CVS

I have been trying to get my mom to start extreme couponing with me, so tonight we did a little drug store run. I didn't have a whole lot of prep time, it was a spur of the minute trip and I had the baby with me but I still did pretty good! I got: Transaction #1 (1) Glade Reed Diffuser 6.99 Used: $1 ECB -1.00 $3 Glade Coupon from Sunday Insert -3.00 Total Paid Out of Pocket 3.64 (including tax) ECB's earned 6.99 Transaction #2 (2) Baby Magic Soap (2/$5) 5.00 (1) Gillette Fusion Razor 5.00 (my cvs has these on clearance) (1) Gillette Fusion Shaving Creme 4.29 (1) Colgate Sensitive Toothpaste 4.89 Used: $6.99 ECB -6.99 $3 off $15 purchase -3.00 $1 Colgate coupon from Sunday Insert -1.00 $1 Colgate CVS coupon-flu shot book -1.00 $1 Shaving Creme Coupon from Sunday Insert -1.00 $4 Fusion Razor coupon from Sunday Insert -4.00 Total Paid Out of Pocket $3.69 Ok this is why I don't shop with children. I was trying to catch a last minute $5 ECB on the Gillette deal before it changed over. I didn't realize that the razor only rang up $5 so I was no where near the $15 required spending so I didn't get the ECB. However, after my coupon I only paid $1 for a razor that is normally $12, so I can live with that lol. Here are the totals: Total out of pocket: $7.33 Total Value: $39.29 Percentage Saved: about 82%
