Halloween Candy

Well since it's the day before Halloween, I figured that I had better go ahead and buy candy. Actually I bought some candy earlier in the month... but between me, my husband, and my 3 children, that candy is long gone! So my strategy for today was to buy candy that I don't like. I got to CVS and realized that there really is NO candy that I don't like, so I settled for candy that is non-chocolate.

This is what I bought:
1 32oz bag of Nerds, Sweet tarts, and Laffy Taffy @ $5.99
2 44oz bags of Skittles and Starburts @7.99 each = $15.98
Total = $21.97
-$4.00 off $20 purchase CVS coupon (sent via email to Extra Care cardholders)
-$4.00 ECB's
-$10.00 ECB's
plus tax =
$4.26 out of pocket for 3 big bags of candy!

I really didn't like using my $10 ecb's on this, but I was going to have to buy candy somewhere. We get TONS of trick or treaters in our neighborhood, so I didn't want to run out of candy. Actually, I hope I got enough!

So next week I will be starting from scratch at CVS!

Welcome to all CVS and Walgreens fans out there! I am joining the ranks of the many Mom's who have discovered that you can get free / cheap stuff at CVS and Walgreen's by paying attention to coupons in the Sunday paper and shopping the weekly sale items.

Since I am new at this, I will be starting off slowly. I really only shop weekly at CVS and Walgreen's, but if I see good deals elsewhere (like Rite Aid!) I will be sure to mention them.

Yesterday I went to CVS, and got the following:
1 Playschool wipes $3.99, less $2.00 coupon from Sunday paper
1 pack Bic razors on sale $5.89 (ad said $5.99, but whatever!), less $2.00 coupon from paper
1 diet Coke $1.49 (I was thirsty and needed a filler!)
I used $6 in ECB's from last week
Total out of pocket = $1.61
AND I got back $4.00 in ECB's for the razors!

I am waiting for my Walgreen's gift card to arrive in the mail, so I am trying to hold off on Walgreen's until then.
