CVS, We’re totally broken up. Well, at least this week.

CVS has not been so kind on the deals lately. I usually go to CVS or Walgreens to get my bargain fix, because honestly Target is much too distracting (ooo…shiny and pretty) for me.  Since I don’t want to drag G & Mike along for my Target sprees, I usually only have a small window of time to shop in. I am away from G far too much anyways, so I loathe having to spend even MORE time away from him. Plus I gotta give him the boobs (G not Mike har har har).

*Must I always make lame jokes relating to my boobs and Mike when I write? *

I am forever racing across Target, from Clearance endcap to endcap. Plus, all the SAHM’s (or just people who don’t wait til Saturday morning to do their weekly matchup) get all the deals before I do. So, slim pickings! Two hours of my time and all the extra PRETTY PRETTY crap I toss in my cart, does not a good bargain make.

But anyways, CVS. Usually I big, puffy, red heart CVS. But not lately.  I went in there on a Tuesday last week. All my awesome q’s I had printed and clipped were unusable, since they decided to limit what products the sales covered. Also, I got in an argument with the manager about Covergirl and my lips being on my FACE……( if you don’t coupon then you will have no idea what I’m talking about). Yes, one hot mess.  I missed out on the awesome Right Guard & Dove deal because my stores were wiped out. I’m pissed because those are both OUR BRANDS!!!!

Herbal Essence Tousle Me Softly Conditioner 2.99

Herbal Essence Tousle Me Softly Mousse 2.99

CVS Paper Towels 1.29

I used: $2/1 HE Product

BOGO Free HE Styler

$1 CVS Paper Towels

$1 ECB from last week

Tax .66

I paid .94 and got $1 ECB back.

This week:

I thought the limit was 3 Packs of Pampers.  I guess it’s 2 per transaction. Then I could do another transaction. When only $6 ECB’s printed out instead of $9, I just told the cashier I wanted to return them.  I ended up with only 2 packs, but since I had used the q’s already he said “Once it’s it’s in the register I can’t take it out”. Whatevs.  So I ended up getting:

TWO JUMBO PACKS OF PAMPERS FOR 5.94

THAT’S 9 CENTS PER DIAPER! GO ME!

I ended up paying $9 OOP for a card for a friend’s wedding, 2 Jumbo packs of Pampers and a huge box of garbage bags ($6.99). (Way too expensive, but we were in dire need).  I used Pampers Q’s, $4/$20 and some leftover ECB’s from last week.

RETAIL: $40.xx

OOP: $9.XX

ECB’s for next week: $6.xx

Ok, CVS. Maybe we’re not broken up. Just fighting.
