Starting the week with a bang.

I haven't been posting my shopping trips as much here lately and I'm sorry for sucking in that department. Honestly, I haven't found too many great deals worth sharing. So I've just been plugging away, grabbing the deals when I see 'em but mostly just buying fresh produce. I did a bit of Whole Foods shopping last week, and when I was checking out I ran into an Envirosavings reader. (Hi, Shannon!) Well, actually she's my husband's co-worker but she said she reads here so I pretended I was cool for a second.

Moving on.

Thanks to Jessica's earlier post, I was able to do very well at CVS this morning:

(2) Huggies @ 9.00 each, used (2) 1.50/1, earned 4 ECBs
(1) Revlon makeup @ 9.99, used 1.00/1, earned 9.99 ECBs
(1) Bic Soleil cartridge @ 6.99, used 3.00/1, earned 3 ECBs (I still have a bazillion of these razors when they were giving them away last summer and fall.)
(1) CVS batteries- FREE with August coupon
(2) Snickers bars @ 1.00, used 1.00/2
(1) Contour meter @ 14.99, used 14.99 coupon, earned 5 ECBs (Thanks, Jill!)
(1) paper @ 1.75

I used the $5/$25 that Jess mentioned, and paid with just under 17 ECBs. Paid 10.50 oop and got back 21.99 in ECBs. That's like paying 5.25 per pack of diapers and getting everything else for free. Total score.

Then, Kroger:

(4) pints blueberries @ 1.00 each
(1) Horizon organic processed cheese product (nassssty, but for some reason processed cheese product is the only kind my kids will eat on grilled cheese.) @ 4.59 (!)
(6) Santa Cruz organic beverages @ 1.50, used .75/1 coupons
(3) Tide free @ 5.88, used 1.00/1 coupons
(1) Cascade @ 3.99, used 1.00/1

$4 came off my total for the Buy 4, Get $4 off P&G promo, which made the Tide 3.88 each and the Cascade 1.99.

Total spent: 27.17
Total saved: 35.98
