CVS Deals for 4/26 - Lots o' Loot!

I decided to do a last minute run to CVS tonight as I had ECBs that were close to expiring. I went not expecting much as most of the good stuff would probably be gone by this late in the week. Sure enough, the Soft Soap Spa was MIA. But, I did good!! LOL Here is a picture of my "loot" for this week.
I did two transactions and actually got kind of confused. The checker was new and actually took some coupons that I didn't think he would.... so I did better than i should have for going in without a clear plan and then not finding what I was looking for!! I went in with $14.50 in ECBs and this is what I did....

2 Alavert 18 ct - RP 10.99 each, Sale 6.99 each

Now I have to decide if I am trying to go back tomorrow to get this weeks deals or wait until after May 1 and double dip the trip... or skip this week altogether. It depends on what great deals I find.

Check out other great CVS deals at The "Cent"sible Sawyer as part of her CVS Superstars! Also, you can check out even MORE great deals at Money Saving Mom with her CVS linkage!

Tomorrow I am making Gift of the Faerie's Bread and also Claudia's Big O Bread.... I will keep you posted! I leave you with a picture of the devil's spawn looking innocent and sweet... hard to believe he is such a boy! LOL

You did awesome.

The kids and I went to Walgreen's yesterday and although we didn't do as well as you we did get some pretty good deals. I didn't take advantage of all the deals because payday isn't until Wednesday and money is low.

I walked out having spent $34.86 tax and all and had pampers, formula, glucose meter, paper towels, 2 boxes of Fresh sacks, 4 cans of broth, 2 bottles of listerine for kids, and a case of diet dr pepper.

Not too bad considering the formula and diapers totaled $25.48 just by themselves and I didn't have any coupons for them.

He looks so cute sleeping there.
