CVS Deals - 5/17

I made it into CVS finally this week. I was starting to worry that it was going to be another one of those weeks where I just wouldn't find the opportunity to stop in to pick up the deals.

As I mentioned, I had stopped in last week. After a baseball game, I had gone to CVS to pick up some replacement ice packs for the first aid kit. They didn't sell any. I decided to pick up some of the deals, even though I didn't have my coupons with me. I had my CVS envelope, so I wasn't completely without coupons but know the deal would have been better with one more cereal coupon and some manufacturers coupons for the vitamins. The store I stopped at seems to have shrunk the Nature Made selection and only had the 60ct bottle of fish oil, instead of the 150 ct (which recently has been a bonus pack with 200). As such, I was worried if I could use the Coke coupon. Turns out, it worked, in fact she rang the coupon and it was only after I asked that she realized she didn't scan the Coke. I came home and had to quickly prepare for company, so no picture.

3 - GM Cereals
1 - Milky Way Caramel (yum!)
2 - Nature Made Fish Oil

-$2.51 99c Coke 12pk with $25 purchase in ad coupon

Here is this week's deal (with picture!):

1 - Finish Jet Dry
1 - Moisturizing Body Wash

Paid with $5.75 in ECBs (from last week) and $12.36 OOP. Earned $10 ECB. My net 'cost' for the trip was $8.11 including tax. I figure that amounts to about 6 months of dishwashing at about $.08 per load (for detergent and rinse aid).
