CVS Scenarios - week of 11/9

It seems to be a pretty good CVS week. There are a variety of things you can stock up on and stay within a budget of $5 OOP. For a "larger" budget, I have included a second set of scenarios for under $15 OOP for a load of stuff.

Transaction #1
1 - Palmolive Dish Soap
1 - Fructis Shampoo
1 - Glaceau Smart Water

- $.25 Palmolive Mfg coupon
- $1. Fructis Mfg Coupon (there are a few different ones out there)

Total $4.82, earn $4.59 in ECBs.

Transaction #2
1 - Listerene Cool Blue

-$1 Listerne IP

Total $2.99. Pay with $2 & $1 ECBs from Transaction #1, adjusted down to $2.99; earn $3 ECBs.

Transaction #3
1 - St Ive's Body Wash (ECB deal only Sunday/Monday)
1 - Hershey Candy Bar (filler)

Total $4.49. Pay with $3 ECB from Transaction #2 and $1.59 ECB from Transaction #1, adjusted down to $4.49 (or use a bigger filler for a higher OOP). Earn $3 ECBs.

You can either roll the $3 ECBs for something that you need, or hold it for next week.

For more $5 scenarios, check out the CVS $5 Challenge at Keeping the Kingdom First.

As an alternate, if you are not looking to stay within a $5 budget and you can make it to CVS on Sunday or Monday, here is a second set of scenarios:
