CVS Scenarios - week of 2/28

I sure could use a CVS $/$$ coupon. Or, how about some more coupons from the coupon machine? I feel like lately, I haven't had any $/$$ coupons from e-mails, newspapers, or the coupon machine. Plus, when I do go to the coupon machine, I seem to only get the two coupons - typically CVS branded items. I used to get at least once a week, another set of coupons and/or $/$$ type coupons. Please CVS bring them back!

I didn't make it to CVS last week, even though I had plans to. With all the snow, I couldn't walk to my local to work CVS at lunchtime and I just had no get up and go to otherwise get out in the snow. So, I just skipped it. I would have liked to have gotten the inexpensive cereal and Softsoap, but alas I saved more money by not spending this week.

My thoughts for this coming we are as follows:

Transaction #1
2 - Speedstick
4 - Pepsi 2L
1 - Gain Detergent

-$1 $1/4 Pepsi Mfg coupon (from a hang tag at CVS earlier in the month)
-$1 Gain Mfg coupon

Total $14.82. Earn $3, $1 and $2 ECBs.

Transaction #2
1 - Softsoap NutriSerums

-$1 Softsoap NutriSerums mfg coupon

Total $3.99, pay with $3 and $1 ECB from transaction #1 (adjusted down). Earn $4 ECBs.

Transaction #3
4 - Ensure 6pk (I use this as a protein drink after exercising)

-$3 Ensure Mfg coupon
-$1.85 Ensure IP
-$1.85 Ensure IP
-4.99 B3G1 Free IP

Total $8.29. Pay with $4 ECBs from Transaction #2 and $2 ECBs from Transaction #1 and $2.29 OOP.

I've also noticed that I haven't gotten very many great coupons lately. It's been such a bummer:(
