CVS & Publix in one night!!

CVS went better than the first night for sure. They were out of what I initially wanted but luckily I was able to go for my 3rd night purchase instead and it worked out great.Oh I did miscalculate and had to grab an item for $2.50 cause I had ECB's that needed spending, which I ended up returning but I will try to keep this simple. Here is the break down....

Febreze Air Affects 3 @ 2.50 = 7.50 (one was the returned item later on)
Vicks Nyquil + Vitamin C 2 @ 4.99 = 9.98
Lollipop (for Lula) .50

Total $17.98

$3/15 CVS coupon
$5 MQ
Used $9.98 ECB

Total OOP = .28!!

Earned $4 ECB

Now for the return....returned febreze spray. Got $2.64 put back on the card. Got Lula's toothpaste (she was out). Also noticed the Greenbag tag that allows you to earn $1 ecb for every 4th visit for .99!! So easy to get my money back and more!


Toothpaste $ 2.99
GreenBag Tag .99

Total $4.20
card used- $2.64

OOP - $1.56

So total OOP was $1.84!!!

So now for Publix!!!

Publix was awesome just like before!! I got tons of good stuff and my savings summary was :

Store Coupon $11.99
Vendor Coupon $ 15.85
Ad Spec $ 59.32

Total 87.16

Grand OOP Total $ 69.02


  1. You're getting good at this!! But I think you need to add in an acronym glossary somewhere so that I know what the heck you're talking about half the time!! haha

  2. Hahaha! I didn't think of that! I will totally do it. :)

  3. For now though..

    ECB = Extra care bucks from CVS

    MQ- Manufacturers coupons

    OOP - Out of Pocket (cost)
