Look at all I got for $4.70!!!

July 11th, 2008 at 07:57 pm



A very successful CVS run today. I really planned everything out so that I could spend the very least amount possible out of pocket (oop). That perfect plan didn't quite work out, as it would have had me paying about $2 oop, but I still did extremely well.

Here is what I got:
(10) Dawn dish liquid
(2) CVS pantiliners
(1) Playtex tampons
(4) Sure deodorants
(2) Always pads
(2) Pert Plus shampoos
(1) Trident Xtra Care gum
I think I made out like a bandit this week. What do you guys think? Smile

    holy batman thats alot of dawn! I go through 2 bottles a year! Do you not have a dishwasher? Thats not a critisism, I am fascinated on why you need so much Dawn.

    I went there this morning too and used my .99 reward for the pantilners. After leaving the store, I realized that I had reached my limit on the pantiliners and I wouldn't receive any more .99 care bucks. I went back and got my money back. You have to be careful of the limit. You really did well. I'm also shopping at Walgreens. They had Ajax 3 for .99.

    Well done! (Tho that Dawn would last me about 5 years)

    *LOL* Actually we do have a dishwasher. It was such a great deal that I couldn't pass it up! I figure I can bring some to work or give it to family who may need it. Plus there is always the soup kitchens that will be happy to take any of my extras. Smile

    hehe. Or you could have a garage sale and sell it for $.50 a piece and actually make money on this transaction Smile

    No, really, good job. I signed up for a CVS card and then realized my city doesn't have one Fun 84 I'm trying to take some of those concepts to walgreens.

    2 bottles a year?! Really? I go through 2 a month. I'm mortified right now, really. I'm not sure if I'm using more because I buy a cheap brand and it doesn't seem to work well unless I use a large amount, or if I'm just wasting it.

    counting pennies~ I'm not sure. We have a dishwasher, and except for cooking pots we dont pre soak anything before it goes in the dishwasher.
    But actually, come to think of it, I am not a cooker. Neither is baseball boy. We were the epitimy of the couple that eats out all the time. We no longer do that, but we still dont cook. We just eat sandwiches, microwave pizzas, ext.
    So maybe thats why a bottle of Dawn lasts us so long.

    I have a dishwasher, albeit, an OLD one and I was always told to *wash* my dishes before I put them in the dishwasher anyway.

    My mom always scoffs when she sees the commercials with people putting dirty dishes into the dishwasher, without even rinsing them off and then it comes out squeaky clean. She thinks its trickery. False advertising, if you will.

    CountingPennies,

    Two ideas to help make your dish liquid last longer. You may already do/know this but thought I'd mention them.

    First, drop a little bit of dish liquid in the sink and fill your whole sink with warm water. You should be able to wash all your dishes in just this one sink-full of sudsy water.

    Second, read the bottle of dish liquid. I know with this Dawn I bought, it is "concentrated" and you only need a tiny bit to make a lot of suds. So a little goes a long way.

    Hope this is helpful!
