CVS Thanksgiving / Black Friday Sale! Spent- $20.12 and Saved- $114.43

image

My haul from the CVS Thanksgiving sale last night! Probably my favorite shopping trip of the year! This is my Black Friday shopping. Here is the breakdown-

Spent- $20.12

Saved- $114.43

Number of CVS cards- 2

Number of Transactions- 12

ECBs (CVS store dollars) Left Over- $5

This sounds like a lot until you know that we were the only ones in the store and they allowed my sister and I to use our boyfriend’s cards to do more deals. They had tons of stuff so we weren’t clearing any shelves. I had $8 ECBs  left on one card so I used it to pick up some mostly free groceries or I would have had $13 ECBs left. There are close ups of my haul below below.

AND this required very, very few coupons. We only used about 2 newspaper coupons and 2 CVS printer coupons per transaction so most of these deals don’t require coupons!

If you want to see these deal match ups you can view the CVS Ad at CVS.com here or the coupon match ups at SouthernSavers.com here.

Here is one additional deal I didn’t see elsewhere-

CVS Multi-pack Toothbrushes $2.99
- Use $1 off CVS Toothbrushes coupon from the CVS coupon printer
- Receive $2 ECBs
Price after coupon and ECBs- FREE!

I love the new trend of reusable christmas shopping bags! They are sturdier and more eco-friendly!

My $1.50 Coffee Pot

imageWe were very sad when our Black & Decker coffee pot died. Enough has been said about saving money on coffee by brewing it at home but we do make our own coffee every day. I do love waking up to a hot cup of coffee. After the death of our coffee pot, we made coffee every day in our french press (given to us by my aunt because she had an extra one) for about two weeks. This, in my opinion, took longer and used more electricity. I decided that I didn’t want to go to the store to buy a new one. I was determined to buy one second hand. Not because I couldn’t afford a new one, but because of the principle of knowing I have seen a million coffee pots at thrift shops in my lifetime. Lo and behold, I found one at one of our favorite thrift shops for $1.50! And it’s a Black & Decker (brands mean nothing to me unless it’s to brag about how cheaply I purchased an expensive item). And it’s actually nicer than our old coffee pot.

This only encourages me to purchase more items second hand. It saves money, helps the environment, and helps the non-profit running the thrift shop.

Free Replacement Otter Box Phone Case

phone1-no nameI have a great phone, a Galaxy SIII, that was a gift for my birthday from B last year. I decided on this phone because it helps me to run this website and also my online business. Knowing that I’m a slightly clumsy person my brother added on to this gift and bought me a very expensive (but cheaper than a new phone or warranty) Otter Box case for it. I LOVE, LOVE that case because I didn’t buy the warranty that came with my phone and I am sure that the case has saved my phone over and over, aka when I dropped it in the parking lot, splashed it with water in the restaurant dish pit, etc. Unfortunately the silicone outside cover has expanded over time and no longer fits well and it has also started to wear out in a few places.

Today at work, I ran into a lady who sells phones for a living and I happened to mention that I wanted to use the warranty to replace my case but had lost my receipt. She informed me that the phone store I bought it at would be able to print a copy, so I stopped on my way home and they did. When I got home I called Otter Box and gave them some serial numbers off of the case and they sent me an e-mail with a link to upload some photos (including the one above but with my name on it) and apparently they are sending me a new case. Yay! I didn’t even need the receipt!

I will post an update when the phone case arrives but that was great customer service, it has saved my phone and now I get a replacement for free? Definitely worth the price my brother paid for it!

11-12-13 CVS Shopping Trip

imageThis week at CVS I spent $8.34 and saved $38.71 and I bought a lot of things we were out of. I save the most by rolling my ECBs (CVS store dollars) by buying something, getting the ECBs, and using them to pay for the next transaction. The Mountain Dew is extra caffeine to get us through finals week. I did 3 transactions on my card and used the bf’s card to get another pain reliever for free (they had tons of them at my store).

If you would like to see the deals for this week I visited SouthernSavers.com.

Free Notebook Paper

imageI started my Master’s degree and teaching earlier this year and I haven’t had to buy almost any school supplies. I had saved my old binders and folders from my undergraduate years and B’s mom gave me the ultimate faculty accessory- a rolling bag!  We did end up buying a few notebooks and blank printer paper.

I realized that with finals week approaching, I needed some college ruled line paper to my mother and she happily gave us 4 packs that had been sitting in a cabinet for years. She also scooped up some graph paper and an old clip board. Little did she know that I had been wanting a clip board for teaching.

It never hurts to tell people when you are looking for things because you never know who might want to get rid of them!

9-29-13 Shopaholic Savers Update

buttonI must apologize for the lack of updates lately. I started my Master’s degree full time and started teaching three college level classes at a University all in the same day. Since then the semester has been crazy and I just haven’t had a spare minute. I want to start posting regularly again ASAP. In the meantime please feel free to look back at some of the other articles on frugal living, couponing and saving money.
