How to Rebuild ECBs from $0 to $30!

Well, I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and were able to pass the time with great people that you enjoy spending time with!  I sure did, but before it got too late, I made a trip to my 24-hour CVS store!  I used most of my ECBs to buy the Pedi-Paws pet nail file AND I lost a NINE DOLLAR ECB!! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes!  I had a spill on my newspaper pile so I put them all in the trash (my inserts and ads were already removed, whew!), BUT I didn't realize that I still had an ECB near the pile!  :-(

CVS Deals Week of November 9th!

This week CVS was great!  I haven't visited Walgreens yet, but I think I may go for a super quick trip for some pumpkin pie filling!


(click on pictures to enlarge)


Here are the details of my CVS adventures this week!

1 - Garnier Fructis Conditioner - I bought Length & Strength!
LP: 2.99, ECBs: 2.00, cpn: 1.00, EP: FREE (+ 0.01 overage)

LP: 11.99, ECBs: 11.99, cpn: 1.00, EP: FREE (+ 1.00 overage)
