The larger selection of clearance dropped again from 50% to 75%. I had my eye on some photo albums. I need them to organize my pictures until I have some time to sit down and actually put together a scrap book. I should just take a weekend and block off the time to that. First I need to clean up everything so I have the space. *snickers* Like that will ever happen.

My mom asked me for some body wash the other week. I gave her one out of my stash knowing a few good deals were coming up. Clean & Clear body wash this week was $.99 after coupons and sales. If I had the BOGO from the Sunday paper they would have worked out to $.49 each. Alas, no such luck. Sometimes I get very frustrated when I can't find a hot coupon everyone 'talks' about. There are a few other things that I'm missing. At least I can try and work around it. Any who . . .

2 Clean & Clear body wash @ $2.99 each = $5.98
2 Nestle Tasters Choice Instant Coffee 7ct @ $1.00 each = $2.00
3 Photo Albums @ $2.49 each = $7.47 (75% off)
4 Pert 2-in-1 Shampoo Trail Size @ $.99 each = $3.96
Skintamate $3.19 (my ad was slightly lower than the match ups.)
Total Before Coupons: $22.60

2 $2/1 Clean & Clear Product (IP)
2 $1/1 Nestle Tasters Choice (from a sample Lady in the grocery store the other week)
3 $1/1 Pert 2-in-1 (no size restriction)
$.96/1 Pert 2-in-1 (Adjusted down from $1)
$1/1 Skintamate product* (sometimes I get better coupons than in the previews, ^_^)
Total After Coupons: $11.64

$2.50 EB Skintamate
Net: $9.14 cost

*Note: The Skintamate coupons is beeping for some products and not others. Not all Skintamate products start with the same bar code and that seems to be the problem.


  1. I saw those photo albums at 50% but didn't see them since--they must have gotten sold, I was hoping.... Thanks for linking up your CVS shopping trip at Simply CVS.

  2. very nice! I need to go back and get one more household product to get my ECBs I put one back by mistake last time I was there.. and I want to pick up the clean and clear stuff this time. I didn't get it last time but the price is just way too good to pass up!
    I posted up a link to my haul if you want to have a looK!

  3. Cheryl,

    I was very surprised to see they made it to 75%. I snagged them about an hour after I signed them. I try and let other people have a crack at them first.


    Mistakes happen. At least CVS tracks those purchases for transaction to transaction. I've already stopped by your blog. Just look for my comment. ^_~
