My name is Jamie and I am a coupon-a-holic.
I had to take my 2 year old to the doctor today.
When I walked in I spotted the Parents magazine.
Since I get that magazine, I knew that there was
a $1/1 Ronzoni pasta coupon. I took the magazine
to the room with us and ripped out the coupon.
(Does this make me a thief? They will just throw it
out or some other coupon-a-holic would get it.)
Then when I went to put the magazine in the rack
while in the room, there was another Parents magazine.
Yep--I took that coupon too. Then I decided to thumb
through the Rachel Ray magazine and low and behold--
another coupon. I am now is possession of 4 $1/1
coupons for the pasta that is part of Kroger's March
madness sale. I will make $$$ buying the pasta and get
4 FREE boxes of Ronzoni pasta. Love it!

General Mills has a program called PSST.
I have mentioned it before. If you are not
a member, you'll want to sign up. They are
going to be having some hosting opportunities
for you this spring if you are interested.
Sounds like it might be a little like House

CVS Lingo

ECB's: Extra care bucks that print out on your receipt. Use them in CVS like cash for anything you need/want to purchase. I like to roll mine if I can into more ECB's from transaction to transaction so that my OOP is less.

OOP: Out of pocket--what it will cost you.

*Don't forget to scan your CVS card at the little red machine in the store close to the front for extra coupon savings. Sometimes you may get $25 Gift Card with new or transferred prescription!!

CVS 3/7-3/13

I really need to get my camera fixed b/c I would
love to show you what I scored at CVS today.
Guess you'll just get to read about it again though.

Nivea Lip Care $2.99 get $2.99 ECB's
use BOGO coupon from 2/7 paper
Like getting 2 for free!!

Gillette Fusion Razor $8.99 get $4 ECB's
use $4/1 coupon from 2/7
OOP: $.99

Pantene Pro-V Shampoo/Conditioner $3.48
Buy 2 get $2 ECB's back
use $2/1 from 2/7
**Pretty good deal if you NEED them. My stockpile of shampoo
is gone so I NEEDED it.

2 Oral B Cross Action Toothbrushes $4 get $4 ECB's back
you can buy 2 in one transaction
use 2 $.75/1 coupons from 2/21
Like making $.75 for each toothbrush.

4 boxes of Kellogg's cereal at $2.50 get $5 ECB's back
use 2 Kellogg's coupons here

Dawn dish soap $1
If you have coupons from Home Made Simple, use the $.50/1
OOP: $.50

My total OOP was only $12.24 after my coupons and ECB's that I rolled over. I got back (drum roll please).......$23.00 in ECB's!!!

Love CVS!!!
If you don't have the above coupons the above scenario will not be so great for you. Below is a scenario for new CVS bargain shoppers!!

Transaction #1
Buy one Oral B Cross Action toothbrush for $4 and get $4 ECB's back.

Transaction #2
Buy 4 boxes of Kellogg's cereal and use 2 coupons from here.
Your total will be $10. Use the 2 coupons which will take off $3
and use your $4 ECB from the toothbrush. Pay $3 OOP but get
a $5 ECB at the end of your transaction.

SIMPLE and it's like getting a toothbrush for free. Even if you don't need one, you can stockpile.

Save your ECB's safely for next week so that you may begin to roll them into more great bargains.
