Work Your Wallet Wednesday #2


Welcome! If you're new to WYWW, check out this link where I explain what the party's all about.

This week I stopped at CVS to take advantage of their diaper sale and I am SO glad I did!
Here's what I came home with:






Now, usually my "target" price for diapers is what Target sells them for (haha, seriously!) - $19.99. I always have $2 coupons from the paper, so normally I get a box for $17.99. If they're on sale, even better - but I have to buy Pampers brand only and clearly they're not something I can get away with not having for a week or two, so I don't stress out about the price too much.

However, this entire picture cost me $9.49 - plus I was given TEN extra bucks to spend for next time! Now that's a great deal!


Here's how I did it, if you're curious (I did have some great coupons to use):


Transaction #1

Pantene Shampoo ($2.99)
Pantene Conditioner ($2.99)
2 Olay Hand Renewal dish liquid ($.96 each)

Used:
2 $2/1 Pantene product from Vocalpoint
(I highly encourage you to sign up for this if you haven't already -
they send AMAZING things to your mailbox!)
$1/2 Olay coupon from a Sunday paper

Paid:
3 EB - nothing out of pocket

Received:
2 EB from the Pantene (1 EB from each)



Transaction #2

3 packages of CVS wipes ($2 each)
1 package of diapers ($19.99)

Used:
$4.50 off box of diapers (CVS coupon from the red machine)
$2 off baby purchase of $10 or more
(also from the red machine - I told you I had sweet coupons to use!)
$2/1 Pampers coupon from a Sunday paper
5 EB
2 EB from Pantene

Paid:
$9.49

Received:
10 EB (from purchase of $25 in baby items)

I could have done a happy dance in the store right there! I would have been thrilled enough to get a box of diapers that cheap, but throw in all that other stuff AND my 10 EB, too?! Thrilled. :)
