I Made A $.42 Profit Buying Milk & More At CVS

I finally made it into CVS this week!!

2 Boxes Cereal $5.00
Milk $2.49
Glade Candle $6.99

minus

$1.00 off Cheerios coupon from the sample I got here
$1.00 off Cin. Toast Crunch coupon
$3.00 Glade coupon (All You maybe?)
$8.00 ECB from this trip
$.50 ECB from Summer spending

Total OOP = $1.07 and I got back $9.99 in ECB.

I still had another $5 in ECB from last week, but didn't find anything to "roll" the bucks with so I settled for $1 out of pocket. I made a small Extra Care Buck profit of $1.49 ($9.99 made minus $8.50 used) combined with the $1.07 in cash spent and I "made" $.42 buying the milk I needed. On the other hand, I did not need any more cereal. But, I went ahead and got it since the Girls Scouts are "trick or treating" tonight for canned goods and toiletries. I have a huge bag of ready for them (cereal, pop-tarts, razors, deodorant, mac-n-cheese...). Plus ther was a profit that I couldn't pass up. :)

Now, I have $5 in ECB from last months trip that still need to be spent (ASAP), and the $9.99 from this trip.

*** DEAL ALERT!! Little Swimmers packs are on the clearance rack for $2.25. It's a great time to stock up for spring!!
