Am I being too cheap???

Those who know me well, know I'm really cheap. But, have I become too cheap, frugal, thrifty, or whatever you want to call it?

Once I was done with my 3 CVS transactions for the week, I looked over my receipts and was a bit upset that I almost spent $7 OOP. Of course after thinking about how I shopped 6 months ago, I felt a little better. Here's what my $7 got me:

I did this in 3 transactions, rolling all my ECB bucks and using a $4 off $20 coupon each time. And coupons of course!

3 packs of Pampers
3 Listerene Smart Rinses (one beyond the ECB monthly deal but hubby LOVES them!!)
3 Bounty 8 roll packs (that is 24 rolls of paper towels!!)
1 Charmin 9 roll pack
6 Chex Mix

There might have been something else...but I think that's it. I know I could have done better but when I really thought about it, most people would be excited about ONE pack of diapers for $7.

Anyone else feel "bummed" when you don't get everything for free?

Wow, I think you did an awesome job! I do get bummed when a deal does not work out exactly like I think it should.

You are right, to some people paying $7 for a bag of diapers is a deal in itself.
