Coupon Craziness 4.2

I know i said i would try to roll previous RR into today, but the swiffers were p&g products also and I don’t think I can use them like that. With friends visiting, I didn’t want to experiment with it.

When I went back for another razor today, I bought the following:

5 swifter wet jet refills – $4.00 each on sale – $1RR each ($5 wyb $20) – $0.50Q = $2.50 each. I needed some so this was a good price for me.

Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves shampoo – $4.29 – $1.00Q – $4.29 EasySaver rebate = $1.00MM!!

Gilette Fusion Razor – $8.99, on sale – $4.00Q – $6RR = $1.01MM!!

Total regular price – $45.43
Sale price – $28.99
Less coupons used – $7.50
Total OOP – $21.49
Less RR earned – $11.00
Total trip cost – $10.49
Total savings – 77%!

I had some ECB’s to roll at CVS so I bought:

Viactiv multi vitamin chews – $8.99, on sale for $7.99 – $3.00 ECBs = $4.99

Nivea Pure Moisture body lotion – $7.99 – $1Q – $1.50 ECBs – $5.49 which doesn’t look that great except that it was paired with this to earn the $3 ECB

Nivea Pearly Lip Gloss – $2.99 – $1Q – $1.50 ECB = $0.49!!

I was quite disappointed to have missed out on the hershey’s chocolate ECBs, though I’m sure my waistband is thanking me :).

Total regular price – $19.97
Total sale price – $18.97
Minus coupons used – $2.00
Minus P.E. ECB’s used – $15.00
Total OOP – $1.97
ECB’s earned – $6.00
Total trip cost – $10.67*
Total savings – 53%

I just realized I could have done better on the Nivea. Buy 2 Nivea lip products at 3.99 and one at $2.99. Use 3 $1.00Q from Sundays insert, earn $3.00. Result is $5 spent insted of $6.00 or $1.67 each.

* I didn’t count previously earned ECBs because I count them in the transaction they are earned in.
