After Q & ECB the 5ct Zyrtec & 2 Motrin PM were FREE and MADE me ECB.   That worked out great b/c I NEEDED the Zegerid Heartburn medicine which wasn’t so cheap!     I was also out of eyeliner so I paid a little more out of pocket that I would have liked, but that is what I get for not watching the make up sales.

John Frieda was $1.50 each after Q & CVS promo.

All in all a good trip.   I got all of the above for less than the retail value of Zegerid.

Spent WAY more than expected b/c I had the family with me.  I should make hubby pay me for the vaseline that he needed for fire starters!  My cost would have been $5 less if I had made him pay with his $$!  Anyway it was an okay trip.

I got:

 John Frieda shampoo for $.50 each after sale , Q & ECB

*Revlon makeup– $4 for each piece–

I know if had been watching sales I could have gotten them for cheaper, but I was running out and was desparate!

*Ivory Soap FREE after sale & coupon

*Bic Razor Free or $.99 after sale & ECB

*Huggies $4.49 I think after sale & ECB

UGH!!!!  I showed up to the store with the WRONG COUPONS.  I had 2 x  $2 off Q for AVEENO, but Neutragena was on sale instead!  My total would have been $5.71 if I had caught it earlier 😦

Oh Well– we were leaving that night to go to the beach, so we would be needing sunscreen regardless!

The upside is I got $10 ECB for spending $20 on Neutragena Sunscreen!

I went late Saturday night hoping to get last weeks sale for the shave cream & get the sales starting on Sunday, b/c I had Q expiring on Sunday but didn’t want to run out Easter and go shopping.  It worked!   This might be a way to beat the person/people who clear the shelves early Sunday morning!

*Dove Deodorant regular price $4.99—-SALE $.99

– $1 off Q= FREE

*Blink Tears $7.99- $4 Q on box= $3.99, but got $7.99 ECB

FREE plus profit of $4 store credit!!!

*Edge Shave Cream $3.29- $.55 Q= $$2.74, got back $2.30 really cost $.34

Spent $6 ECB from last week–I got back $10.29 ECB & $2 ECB left from last week= $12.29 AVAILABLE!
