CVS trip :)

I've been so busy these last few days (the end of the school year is just crazy) that I've barely had time to even LOOK at the ads much less get Qs ready for my shopping trips. But I have $8.00 ECBs that expire tomorrow, so I checked out the CVS ad to see what I could do hit up CVS on our way to Chick-fil-a for school spirit night tonight. Here's how it went:

(4) Purex 50 oz. laundry soaps - $1.98 each
use: $1/1 Purex laundry soap (50-100 oz) (5/1 RP)
total: $0.98 per bottle

(2) Revlon nail polish - $4.99 sale and earn $4.00 ECBs (limit you could earn $24 in ECBs!)
use: $2/1 Revlon color product (5/8 SS) (the Q does beep, but it is correct and my cashier just manually typed it in)
total: $9.98-$4.00 in Qs = $6.00 (but earned back $8 ECBs)

Total: Approx $10.00
used: $8 ECBs
paid oop: $3.17
earned: $8.00 it was really a $5.00 MM!!!

INSANE Publix trip!!!

So the Publix weekly sale ended today, and I wanted to grab some more Crystal Light before the sale was over. Many of the blogs that I follow also posts FREEBIE deals. The post opportunities to get Qs in the mail for FREE items. These are usually new items that a company want to get into the hands a lot of people right away to get more people to buy their product. In the last week, I've received an unusually high amount of these Qs. So the only items listed below that I actually paid OOP for are the Crystal Light and gas cards. This is crazy exciting!!! Here it goes:

(6) Crystal Light packs - bogo @ $2.99
use: (2) b2g1 MQ (4/3 SS)
use: (2) $1/3 TQ (print here) Not sure if this is still printing.
total: $0.99 for all 6 (or about $0.17 per pack)

Since I ran out of Target Qs but still had some MQs I decided to snag a few more for the price:

(6) Crystal Light packs: bogo @ $2.99
use: (2) b2g1 MQ (4/3 SS)
total: $2.99 for 6 packs (or about $0.50 per pack which is still a steal!)


(1) Uncle Ben's Rice Pouch - $1.99
used: 1 FREE pouch Q (registered for & received by mail)
total: FREE!

(1) John Frieda Hair Color Foam - $11.99
used: 1 FREE box Q (registered for & received by mail)
used: $5/1 TQ (print here)
total: + $5.00 MONEY MAKER!!!
*Remember, you can use a MQ and a competitor Q on the same item. So the MQ was for a totally free box. Then I could also use the Target Q, so I made $5 here!!!

(1) 12-pack Coke Zero - $4.00
used: 1 FREE 12 pack Q (earned from
total: FREE!!!

(2) Suave Professionals Product - $2.99
used: (2) FREE product Qs (registered for & received by mail)
total: FREE!!!

(1) International Delight Creamer - $1.67
used: 1 FREE product Q (registered for & received by mail)
total: FREE!!!

$50 worth of gas cards - $50

total: $40

I also used a $5/$25 Save-a-lot Q.

Grand total after coupons: $33.98
Total saved: $78.94

This would have been a great deal to get the $50 worth of gas for $34, but I got tons of other stuff too! I'm on a serious Q high!!!

Walgreens had a few things that I was going to try and grab this week. I've steered away from Wags RRs lately because they are more difficult to use than CVS's ECBs. Anyway, here are some FREE or almost FREE things I found at Wags today that do not involved any Register Rewards:

This will be nice to have on hand this summer. I've never tried it, but I'll try anything if it's free!!!

***I did NOT include the sun burn ointment in the total. I just forgot until I totaled everything else up. Just know it's free AFTER rebate!***
