It’s Saturday morning and I have been plotting and planning my savings! A couple of months ago, I found a peelie at Walgreens for buy Crest Pro-Health toothpaste form and they will send you a coupon for a FREE Crest Pro-Health 4.2 oz up to $3.29. I filled out the little form and circled the Crest toothpaste and put it an envelope and that will be mailed out today. I am looking forward to receiving that FREE Crest coupon b/c they are always running some sort of promotion at Walgreens, CVS or Rite Aid for Extra Bucks (EB, Register Rewards (RR) or Single Check Rebates (SCR)!

I didn’t see any reason to go to Walgreens next week b/c there are no great deals to even hassle with going to Walgreens. In San Diego, Walgreens only lets you use one RR per transaction so need to go to Walgreens. Rite Aid, has a few items I may check out. On the other hand…CVS will be the place to be! Scan your CVS loyalty card for additional CVS coupons!

I have already gathered my coupons & EBs & CVS coupons for my trip to CVS on Sunday. I plan to buy the following items, if they are in stock:

Caliber or CVS memo book 50-80 sheets $.99 get $.99 EB (limit 2)
Caliber or CVS #2 pencils 24ct $1.99 get $1.99 EB (limit 2)
1″ Vinyl Binder $3 get $3 EB (limit 2)
Paper Mate 1.2 pens 10ct $.99 get $.99 EB (limit 2)
Caliber or CVS filler paper 150 sheets $2 get $2 EB (limit 2)
Duracell Batteries AA,AAA,D $2.99 get $1 EB(limit 1)
Use -$.75 Duracell Batteries (Red Plum 7/12)

Gold Emblem Nuts $.99 x 2 = $1.98 (small package)
Use -$2 CVS coupon on any 2 Gold Emblem Nut Items (up to $2 value)

Yes, I have a tall order but I have a $10/$50 CVS coupon to spend! I also have a $4/$20 coupon and I plan to give that,too, to the cashier. She may or may not let me work both but I am gonna try it. Excluding the $4/$20 coupon, my total if everything is in stock will be $64.88 but after EBs (I have $27.98 EBs), manufactuer coupons and CVS coupons, my out of pocket should be around $13.16.

Wish me luck!
