Bargains are back

I haven’t been diligent at all about posting my weekly bargains. I still enjoy my time on Sundays, sitting with Caroline at the table while we both clip coupons. (Well, I clip coupons; she cuts paper. She is developing some mean cutting skills according to her preschool teacher.) I haven’t found any great brag-worthy items lately, though. Today was a pretty good day, though!

Money Makers at CVS
– St. Ives body wash, $3.99 — get $3 ECB. Use the printable coupon and make yourself $1.01.

– Garnier Nutriesse shampoo or conditioner — $2.99 — get $2 ECB. Use one of the many $1 off coupons to make yourself a pretty penny.

I suggest you use the money you made to put toward $20 worth of chocolate that will earn you $10 of ECB.

Fun Finds at Walgreens
– I’ve written here before how much I enjoy shaving with Schick Inutition razors — they have the shaving cream built onto them. They are pricey, but there are always coupons and sales on them. I have been holding a buy one, get one free manufacturer’s coupon for them. This month, Walgreens has a $3 coupon on them in the Easy Saver. And this week, they are on sale for $6.99. So, I had the razor on my list, thinking I’d get two packs for $6.99, making them $3.99 for both after both coupons — nice deal. I get in the store and pick up the first pack and find, hiding behind it, a bonus pack with extra blades!! Score!

– I also found on an endcap, 16-month art calendars for $5 each. I bought one of Monet paintings and one of Van Gogh paintings. These will be great to hang in Caroline’s art areas to use in building art appreciation.
