My Trips to CVS, Walgreens and Target

This afternoon I stole some minutes away from my kids to go shopping. I am really loving being able to shop at CVS. I particularly love that my local store turns on next weeks sales on Saturday. So by shopping on Saturday I am able to “double dip” in my transactions. Mostly it saves me a trip to CVS on a given week. This is what I did:

At CVS: I had already maxed out the Huggies deal, but I still needed diapers.  So I went ahead and used the $3/1 Huggies diaper printable coupon to get one more pack of cheap diapers.  In the end I paid $1.85 cents for one:

One pack of Huggies diapers $8.49
One pack of U by Kotex pads $4.99
One container of CVS cotton swabs $0.99
Two right guard deodorant $2.69 each
- $3/1 Huggies printable coupon
- $1/1 U by Kotex CVS coupon
- $1/1 U by Kotex manufacturer coupon
- one $3/2 Right guard coupon
- $1/1 CVS facial care product coupon
- 9 ECBS I had on hand
Paid $1.85 and got back another 9 ECBs

At Walgreens: I did this transaction twice. I was in a hurry:

One Schick Hydro Razor $7.99
One EOS shaving cream $2.99
-$5 Schick hydro coupon
-$5RR I had
Paid $0.98 and got back $8 in RRs

At Target:

One Gallon of Milk
One loaf of bread
6 Schick razors
- six $5/1 Schick razors coupons
- six $1/1 Schick razor target coupons
-$5 target gift card from the Bertolli deal last week
Paid around $13 and got back $15 in Target gift cards

I wish I could beautify my shops with a pic but like I said I stole time from my kids to go shopping but not enough to arrange everything and take a pic. How did you do this week? What did you end up with?

    I hardly ever manage to get the razor deals at Target, even when I go very early in the week, they are all already gone. Oh well, diapers were what I needed, and I got a pack for less than two dollars at CVS. Woo-hoo!

      I know what you mean about the razors… I found the last two earlier this week, and they’ve been completely out of stock ever since.

      Cori,

      the only reason I got lucky was because my area did not get the razor coupon, so all the razors were still on the shelves :-)

      You know I love Walgreens but I am sure loving CVS too. I need to learn to love Rite Aid too.

      • My first ? is CVS…they are the easiest to deal with. I don’t have to worry about having more coupons than items like WAGS. Plus, our store has the best people working there. They’re always waiting and willing to help. :)
        I got $35 worth of stuff for $1.39 plus made back $15 in ECBs.
        Glad you enjoyed your shopping trip today! I try to make my CVS trips solo every week…even if I have to go @ midnight.

          Mercedes & Andrea…
          I try Wags. and Target but I didn’t have nice experience with them. The cashiers, the store, the policy about coupons and the hard time that They give to the costumer really is awful! I prefer Jewel Osco, They never gave me attitude and always help me with my coupons… but now I also love CVS! :)

    Oh I’m so jealous that your CVS starts their deals on Saturday. Lucky!!

  5. Takia Maris says:

    The CVS in my area has clearance in the cosmetic section. Items marked with bright pink and green stickers are 50% & 75% off respectively. Some of the Revlon lipgloss colors are marked for 75% off making them $1.99 each. With coupons from previous weeks $2/1 Revlon this makes them free!

  6. Karen says:

    I don’t have a child in diapers, but I do have a code for “30 FREE Gifts to Grow Points” from Pampers. How can I give this to someone who can use it?
