Another week at CVS

So another week has passed and it's time to type up the tally. The monthly deals appear to run through 11/4, so after that I will be posting a month long tally. I promise it will be nuts. I also promised pictures, those will be forthcoming too. So here we go:

12 Carefree Pantiliners
12 Kotex Ultra Compact Pads
11 Playtex Sport Tampons
8 Colgate Max Fresh Toothpaste
6 Revlon 12 hr Single Eyeshadows
2 Loreal HIP Foundation
3 Oral B Crossaction Power Toothbrushes
3 Robitussin (4oz liquid)
3 Advil PM (20 ct)
2 Advil Cold & Sinus
1 Advil trial size (6ct)
1 Advil Liquigels (20ct)
1 Robitussin Cough Drops
1 Fresh Step Cati Litter (14 lb)
1 CVS trash bags (20 ct)
1 Underbed Storage box
1 Single serve CVS Pedialyte
1 Gold Emblem Cashews (Single pack)

Total oop: $19.24
Total coupons used: $91.72
Total ECB used: $153.67
Total ECB earned: $217.75

Not the best week, but I am still rolling. I also will be getting rebates back for some items. $9.00 from Wyeth for Advil/Robitussin
$4.97 from Playtex
$5.97 from Oral B

So while it may not be the most profitable week ever, I still did okay. The Cat litter and trash bags were actual household needs and I did not have coupons for them. If Justin likes the CVS trash bags, I will be stocking up as I have coupons for CVS brand items. As the month of October comes to a close, I will be glad to get a chance to catch my breath, between the pumpkin farm and all these great deals, it has been crazy this month. I am also submitting my Walgreens rebate this week, they will be giving me back $69.33 this time. Seeing as most of that was paid for with last month's rebate of $29, I am doing pretty good there too. Seems like the November deals are going to suck though, so I am trying to roll my ECBs out past Black Friday so that I can use them on that most hallowed of all shopping days.

Stay tuned for the insanity post sometime next week when the dust settles.

I don't even know what else to say.

I'm quite proud of your Revlon e/s haul. I'm a total makeup snob, and the Revlon 12 hr shadows are the only drugstore ones I'll touch! I think they wear as well as my Chanel and Dior shadows...so I hope you enjoy them!
