Fun at CVS

Well, here it is. My first blog post ever. And, just to be fun, I have to write my first post on the phenomenal money-saving shopping trip at CVS yesterday. Just take a look at the picture to see what I got (and there are even things missing. My husband & kids couldn't resist the box of Raisinets, three other candy bars and gum, so they are missing from this picture). And for how much, you ask? A whopping $17.14! Plus, I have $18.81 in extra bucks to use on my next trip.

Here's the list of all that I got:

-- 4 Arm & Hammer laundry detergent (32ld)
-- Schick razor for women
-- Schick razor for men
-- Herbal Essence shampoo + styler
-- Herbal Essence conditioner + styler
-- 2 Colgate Advanced toothpaste
-- 2 Palmolive dishwashing liquid
-- Charmin Ultra Strong (9pk)
-- CVS Tampons (10pk)
-- 2 composition notebooks
-- 1 pkg erasers
-- 1 pkg binder clips
-- 4 pkgs pens
-- 1 spiral notebook (my 9yo was with me and pleaded for this blue, sparkly notebook ;-)
-- 1 box Raisinets
-- 1 box Sno-Caps
-- 6 candy bars
-- 2 Dentyne gum
-- 4 Mentos gum
-- 2 pkgs Q-Tips

All in all, a great shopping day at CVS! I am so grateful to for sharing her know-how. Her website has been a great teacher to me. I have much to learn yet (sticking to a budget would be the big one!), but I am taking it one day (or one shopping trip!) at a time.
